US govt covers up killings of a dozen people as part of the drug war

_The Observer_ in the UK prints an investigative story about a US government drug enforcement operation, run through Homeland Security rather than the DEA, that kept an informant on payroll even after he tortured and killed a man and continued to support him as he assisted in the abductions and killings of 11 others, one of whom was an American resident caught up in a case of mistaken identity. The operation was approved by the Department of Justice and, as is common in the current administration, when employees inside the agencies questioned the operation, they were punished and threatened. Reminds me a lot of the movie _Traffic_. Glad to hear we’re trying new and innovative strategies in our quest to to “win” the “war” on drug trafficking.
