CIA Para-Military Personnel Injured in Mexico City Attack

A leaked report in Mexico affirms that the US officials attacked by Mexican Federal Police last week were CIA agents, something that has since been confirmed to InSight Crime.

Writing for El Universal, Mexican journalist Carlos Loret de Mola claimed on August 28 that he had been privy to a confidential report confirming that the two US officials injured after Mexican Federal Police opened fire on their armored Toyota SUV in Morelos state on August 24 were in fact Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officials.

    @ArcticWarrior Yes, we old bears are getting closer to home each day. and many have already gone ahead.  And there are hard truths left untold from both sides.   If you do not know Anna Mae's story, take a moment to hear it.  There is an old FBI agent who calls me every few years...all the hanging threads haunt both sides of the tale.  He will be mad next time he calls, though.  I changed my phone number LOL

    @StormR  Write it down. Tuck it away so others arent having unwanted moonlight shining on them. One day someone will appreciate all that history, if not...its lost

  • StormR

    @ArcticWarrior True that, AW...true that.   You are indeed one of the people, even if someone foolishly told you differently.  You know that it is not my safety that is of concern.

    @StormR  Stormy thats exactly why you need to write it down, safe or not, 20-50-100 years from now it may be very relevant to someones personal history

    @ArcticWarrior I have not written any of it down.  Some of it may never be safe to write down.   The AIM of old was destroyed as much from the inside as it was from the outside.   If you were at my kitchen table, I would tell you stories, though :)  AIM led me into service to the people.  After the long craziness at a place I was not at, I chose to follow the path of the spirit and not the gun.
