One of the world’s most wanted drug lords, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was almost captured in Los Cabos during a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to the Mexican newspaper El Universal.
According to a spokesman from the Mexican Federal Police’s special organized crime investigative unit, the federales almost captured ‘El Chapo’ right after Hillary Clinton met with a group of G-20 foreign diplomats in Los Cabos, Baja California.
Spokesman Jose C. Salinas said that foreign dignitaries were having a meeting with Hillary Clinton to discuss the preparations for the upcoming G-20 summit in June when the federal police learned that ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was in the same town. He was allegedly at one of his mansions in the coast overlooking the Sea of Cortez, in the section of town called Punta Ballena.
Salinas did not provide information that indicated if the DEA was involved in the raid, but he mentioned that Mexican Federal Agents were very close and they almost captured the notorious drug lord. He somehow managed to escape (again). However, authorities were able to arrest a small group of his operatives that were still inside the house, including one of his pilots (CIA?).
On February 28th, DeadlineLive.info received information from a Mexican Government source indicating that Guzman’s arrest was going to be staged this year in order to help elect the National Action Party presidential candidate, Josefina Vazquez Mota. The source provided the information when Vazquez Mota was still running in the primaries. Last week, she accepted her party’s nomination to run for president.
Joaquin Guzman is the alleged leader of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel –the most powerful criminal organization in Mexico, and some say in the world. “El Chapo” recently made Forbes’ list of most powerful and wealthy people in the world. He single-handedly controls the crystal meth market, which he pioneered in the 80’s and 90’s. He also controls most of the cocaine smuggled into the U.S… He’s married to Emma Coronel, niece of the notorious CIA cocaine smuggler Nacho Coronel.
