Award Winning Reporter Details U.S. Media Blackout On Mexican Military 

Washington Times investigator exposes mayhem on the southern border

An award winning reporter has detailed an ongoing media blackout concerning a 
major issue of national security on the southern border.

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 illegal smugglers.

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 said.

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:

Drug Cartel

The Secret Border Wars
Report: Armed Mexican Troops Invade US

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 United States.

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 here.

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 as Indiana.
