An award winning reporter has detailed an ongoing media blackout
concerning a major issue of national security on the southern
Sara A. Carter, National Security and Pentagon reporter
for the Washington Times, spoke to the Alex Jones show today regarding
consistent incursions into the U.S. by armed Mexican troops aiding
Ms. Carter has won several national prestigious
awards for her coverage of border issues north and south, including
the 2006 Eugene Katz Award for Excellence in the Coverage of Immigration,
presented annually by the Center for Immigration Studies.
"There's a lot of people who don't realize
how serious the situation is on the southern border." Ms.
Carter said. "Even to the extent when sometimes some of our
own government officials choose to ignore it, even though they
know it's going on."
"This is a very serious national security issue
in many respects and it deals with an array from smuggling humans,
to smuggling narcotics, and the whole mix up is that there's many
people within the Mexican government and military that have already
been bought and sold out to the drug cartels."
"It's very difficult to distinguish between
those that are really trying to do the job, and those that are
sell outs to the drug cartels. I've seen it with my own eyes,
I've been down in many of the same border cities, I've spent an
enormous amount of time in Mexico working with intelligence officials
and others, and I have many Mexican sources who had said 'please
get the truth out'." Ms. Carter continued.
Ms. Carter pointed out that although such activity
has been ongoing for years, there has essentially been a news
blackout in America.
"It is a huge story. It is bigger than most
of us even know, and people are afraid of covering the story.
We hear reports but we don't see in depth detail." Carter
Aside from Carter herself it has been left entirely
to the alternative media to expose the reality of the situation
on the border.
We have covered multiple previous incidents of this
nature here at Prisonplanet and Infowars:
The mainstream media cautiously began reporting
on the issue two years ago when Sara Carter uncovered Department
of Homeland Security documents and maps showing that Mexican military
has crossed into the United States 216 times in the past nine
years. In the documents U.S. officials claimed the incursions
are being made to help foreign drug and human smugglers into the
Many incidents have seen Mexican troops fire on
U.S. border agents.
Ms. Carter also exposed how the U.S. Border Patrol
is "tipping" the Mexican government as to the location
of Minutemen and other civilian border patrol groups participating
in apprehending illegal immigrants.
Her award winning articles are grouped together
In the following MSNBC report from last year, Sara
Carter details how one particular incident saw Mexican troops
crossing the border along Rio Grande with mounted machine guns
pointing at border patrol agents, deputies and Texas highway patrolmen:
In today's interview with Alex Jones, Ms. Carter
also spoke of shockingly commonplace incidents of Mexican troops
are aiding the kidnapping
of American citizens across the border:
"Many of those people have not been found,
I'm gonna tell you something, I was down in Nuevo Laredo and I
was there when Betty Flores was still the mayor, I remember having
a one on one conversation with her and I said 'look, there have
been Americans in Laredo that have been kidnapped, and taken into
Nuevo Laredo in Mexico and there's still no sign of them, nobody
has done anything about it, what are you going to do?'
"Basically the answer to me was 'well we believe
a lot of those folks were involved with the cartels anyway'. Well
that isn't true." Carter said.
She also delved into great detail concerning the
different drug cartels of Mexico and their activities on the border
with Mexican authorities, as well as reports of groups such as
Los Zetas engaging in corruption inside the U.S. as far north
