SPECIAL HANDLING: Marko handles the contact

Had a very confusing (for me at least) discussion with our contact in
the Mexican Foreign Service. See below:

Mexican: Keep an eye on Argentina right now. The intelligence that we
can’t share with the Americans (due to lack of reciprocity) we are
sharing with the Argentines. We might be on the verge of finding a
smoking gun in Argentina in the coming months.

Serb: Smoking gun for what? That is about as unclear of a message as you
can send me…

Mexican: You’re right, that was vague. I wrote it really quickly in
between ****

I’m talking about drugs. Sinaloa has a presence there now and it is
using that, apparently, to coordinate some of the shitstorm back home.
By smoking gun, I’m talking about info that could potentially take Chapo
and others down for good. The Argentines appear to be on top of their
shit.

Serb: Wow! That is like the first time I have ever heard that Argentines
are on top of their shit!

Any more info would be great…

Why are Argentines connected to Sinaloa?
Are there even any drugs over there?
Are there Argentine operatives in Mexico?

Anything…

Mexican: Sorry, it’s all I can say for now. Not really something that I
am totally in the loop on, but I can tell you that Mexican Intelligence
now sees Argentina as a “top 5-7” country on our priority list.

Make of that what you will… any follow up questions?
