On today’s Traces of Reality Radio: We discuss the curious circumstances surrounding the capture of the head of the Mexican drug cartel Los Zetas, Miguel Trevino Morales (aka Z40).  We also get into the Stratfor/Wikileaks emails that suggest a plan for “extrajudicial targeted killings” of drug war villains, the proposed “border surge,” armed drones within the United States, and much more.
