As head of the Sinaloa cartel, Mexico’s largest, Guzman was a ruthless enforcer of discipline, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman employed violence to protect his distribution routes and intimidate rivals. (Warning: Graphic 18+).
The kingpin of kingpins, Guzman had the sway to settle disputes with other drug traffickers. In Chicago, his distribution center for the U.S., he cast a long shadow: Few dared cheat the Sinaloa cartel.
The Rise and Fall of El Chapo: Killer, drug smuggler, folk hero, Houdini of jailhouse escapes–the legend “El Chapo” is well-known. But now this two-hour documentary special reveals an unprecedented look at the man behind the myth and how his international drug cartel impacts us right here at home.
Last year the U.S. and Mexican authorities hailed the capture of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman in the Pacific coast town of Mazatlan as a major victory in their war on drugs. A year later the power vacuum caused by his absence is fueling chaos on the streets of Chicago and Ciudad Juárez, across the border from El Paso.
Draw your own conclusion about who had a hand in helping El Chapo go free in 2015, and who benefited from his escape.
UPDATE: February 8, 2017. Brooklyn, New York, USA. Federal authorities announced Friday that Joaquin Archivaldo Guzman Loera, known by various aliases including, “El Chapo,” will face charges filed in Brooklyn, New York, following his extradition to the United States from Mexico.

My continued research into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has led me into some very murky waters. It is well-known that the US presidents, British Ministers and Saudi Kings have a special “ménage à trois“ enabling and protecting their self-serving, highly profitable oil and arms deals.
However, the extent to which the USA is willing to cover-up the Saudis’ gross crimes against women and children has gone too far.
Just how far is too far?
When Wahhabi’s reach is extending beyond their own borders – under the banner of the DAESH.
It is no coincidence that the sudden rise and occupation by Islamic Extremists are located in countries that would expand the al-Saud royal family’s kingdom. The countries currently under attack and occupation include Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan, and Yemen.
Although the Saudi king claims to have waged war in Yemen to fight “ISIS“; when clearly theSaudi-led coalition is there solely to assist the DAESH fighters in the genocide and leveling of the Yemenis and their culture. Jordan and Israel have blood on their hands as well. The USA-NATO-Israel administrations are state sponsors of terrorism, providing training, weapons and money to various terrorist formations.
Why do you think Saudi Arabia has been the largest purchaser of weapons of war for many years – for a country that was not at war?
Of course they are arming their Wahhabi/DAESH militia’s campaign to occupy, and enforce the surrounding Muslim countries to obey their religious police, who in-turn will force the Muslim people to follow the Wahhabi extremist faction of Islam.
America’s “anti-terrorist campaign’ is supporting a so-called “moderate” al-Qaeda group known as “al-Nusrah“, under the pretense of going after another “more extreme” group of al-Qaeda, and their self-proclaimed Islamic State.
It is no secret that al- Nusrah is an al Qaeda affiliate, who are responsible for committing countless atrocities in Syria. So, it makes no sense that al-Nusrah are now considered to be the “Moderate Opposition” by the Obama administration.
Up until2014 the al-Qaeda militia’s occupation in Iraq was known as “AQI“, however when the USA pulled out of Iraq, the region was quickly claimed as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria “ISIS“. The declassification of White House internal documents, and the political developments in the Middle East, have contributed towards confirming what media has known and provided evidence many times over:
Washington was behind the formation of ISIS; just as much as it is now supporting the “moderate al-Qaeda terrorists“, who the Obama administration is heralding as part of America’s campaign against the ISIS-ISIL extremists. Ironically, the US government officials expect the world to believe that they are committed to waging a war against their “frienemy”, the Saudi kingdom’s very own al-Qaeda/ DAESH/ Wahhabi terrorists.
Basically, if we are to believe the preposterous statements the US government feeds to the media, then “al-Qaeda has waged war on itself.”
Even more outrageous is the fact that both “warring”al-Qaeda groups are supported covertly by US intelligence and Saudi Arabia; the UK has also played its part in this bloody mess of weapon sales and war crimes.
Below is a copy of just one, of many USA Department of Defense internal documents that have been declassified. This particular correspondence proves that the US administration knew they were leaving the Iraqi people defenseless to the armed occupation by Islamic extremists.
The terrorist groups ISIS and al-Nusrah are protected by the Western military alliance. Both al-Qaeda entities are being used to destroy Syria and Iraq. Their airstrikes allegedly aimed against the DAESH fighters does not target ISIS, it targets Syrian and Iraqi civilians, their schools, hospitals, factories, residential areas, government buildings, roads and bridges.
Could it be that the endgame is a regime change in Syria, and the fragmentation of Iraq, allowing for the Saudis to slip in the backdoor? Consider the following three points.
Going after “Islamic terrorists” by launching a “preemptive” war to “Protect America’s Homeland,” is being used to justify their own military agenda in the Middle East.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant(ISIL) is a creation of US intelligence. Washington’s “Counter-terrorism Agenda” in Iraq and Syria consists of supporting the terrorists.
The incursion of the Islamic State(IS) brigades into Iraq starting in June 2014 was part of a carefully planned military-intelligence operation supported covertly by the US, NATO and Israel.
The counter-terrorism campaign is a fiction.
Portrayed by the media as a humanitarian undertaking, this large-scale military operation directed against Syria and Iraq has resulted in countless civilian deaths.
The Islamic State is funded by Saudi Arabia and protected by the US and its allies. According to Professor Michel Chossudovsky in his book ‘America’s War on Terrorism’, “if they had wanted to eliminate the Islamic State brigades, they could have “carpet” bombed their convoys of Toyota pickup trucks when they crossed the desert from Syria into Iraq in June 2014.
“The Syro-Arabian Desert is open territory. With state of the art jet fighter aircraft (F15, F22 Raptor, CF-18) it would have been -from a military standpoint- a rapid and expedient surgical operation. It could not have been undertaken without the unbending support of the Western media which has upheld Obama’s initiative as a counter-terrorism operation.“
THE HISTORICAL ORIGINS OF AL QAEDA By Professor Michel Chossudovsky.
The US has supported Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations for almost half a century since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war.
“Advertisements, paid for from CIA funds, were placed in newspapers and newsletters around the world offering inducements and motivations to join the Jihad.”
Since the Reagan Administration, Washington has supported the Islamic terror network.
“Ronald Reagan called the terrorists “freedom fighters”. The US supplied weapons to the Islamic brigades. It was all for “a good cause”: fighting the Soviet Union and regime change, leading to the demise of a secular government in Afghanistan.”
Jihadist textbooks were published by the University of Nebraska. “The United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan school children with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings”
Osama bin Laden, America’s bogyman and founder of Al Qaedawas recruited by the CIA in 1979 at the very outset of the US sponsored jihadist war against Afghanistan . He was 22 years old and was trained in a CIA sponsored guerrilla training camp.
“Al Qaeda was not behind the 9/11 Attacks.September 11, 2001 provided a justification for waging a war against Afghanistan on the grounds that Afghanistan was a state sponsor of terrorism, supportive of Al Qaeda.
“The 9/11 attacks were instrumental in the formulation of the “Global War on Terrorism”.”
THE ISLAMIC STATE (ISIL)
The Islamic State was originally an Al Qaedaaffiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Presidency(GIP),Ri’āsat Al-Istikhbārāt Al-’Āmah ( رئاسة الاستخبارات العامة).
The ISIL brigades were involved in the US-NATO supported insurgency in Syria directed against the government of Bashar al Assad.
NATO and the Turkish High Command were responsible for the recruitment of ISIL and Al Nusrah mercenaries from the outset of the Syrian insurgency in March 2011. According to Israeli intelligence sources, this initiative consisted in:
“a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (DEBKAfile, NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011.)”
There are Western Special Forces and Western intelligence operatives within the ranks of the ISIL. British Special Forces and MI6 have been involved in training jihadist rebels in Syria.
Western military specialists on contract to the Pentagon have trained the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons.
The ISIL’spractice of beheadings is part of the US sponsored terrorist training programs implemented in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Recruited by America’s ally (Saudi Arabia), a large number ofISIL mercenaries are convicted criminals released from Saudi prisons on condition they join the ISIL.
“Saudi death row inmates were recruited to join the terror brigades.”
“Jihadist fighters have met Israeli IDF officers as well as Prime Minister Netanyahu. The IDF top brass tacitly acknowledges that “global jihad elements inside Syria” [ISIL and Al Nusrah] are supported by Israel.
SYRIA AND IRAQ
The ISIL are the foot soldiers of the Western military alliance. Their unspoken mandate is to wreck havoc and destruction in Syria and Iraq, acting on behalf of their US sponsors.
U.S. Senator John McCain has met up with jihadist terrorist leaders in Syria.
The Islamic State (IS) militia, which is currently the alleged target of a US-NATO bombing campaign under a “counter-terrorism” mandate, continues to be supported covertly by the US. Washington and its allies continue to provide military aid to the Islamic State.
U.S. and allied bombings are not targeting the ISIL, they are bombing the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria including factories and oil refineries.
The IS caliphate project is part of a longstanding U.S. foreign policy agenda to carve up Iraq and Syria into separate territories: A Sunni Islamist Caliphate, an Arab Shia Republic, a Republic of Kurdistan.
THE GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM (GWOT)
The Global War on Terrorism is presented as a “Clash of Civilizations”, a war between competing values and religions, when in reality it is an outright war of conquest, guided by strategic and economic objectives.
U.S. sponsored Al Qaeda terror brigades (covertly supported by Western intelligence) have been deployed in Mali, Niger, Nigeria, the Central African Republic, Somalia and Yemen.
“These various affiliated Al Qaeda entities in the Middle East, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia are CIA sponsored “intelligence assets”. They are used by Washington to wreck havoc, create internal conflicts and destabilize sovereign countries.“
The US is also supporting Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations in the Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region of China. The underlying objective is to trigger political instability in Western China.
“Chinese jihadists are reported to have received “terrorist training” from the Islamic State “in order to conduct attacks in China”. The declared objective of these Chinese-based jihadist entities (which serves the interests of the US) is to establish a Islamic caliphate extending into Western China. (Michel Chossudovsky, America’s War on Terrorism, Global Research, Montreal, 2005, Chapter 2).
The Terrorists R Us: While the US is the unspoken architect of the Islamic State, Obama’s holy mandate is to protect America against ISIL attacks.
The homegrown terrorist threat is a fabrication. It is promoted by Western governments and the media with a view to repealing civil liberties and installing a police state. The terror attacks by alleged jihadists and terror warnings are invariably staged events. They are used to create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.
“In turn, the arrests, trials and sentences of “Islamic terrorists” sustain the legitimacy of America’s Homeland Security State and law enforcement apparatus, which has become increasingly militarized.
“The ultimate objective is to instill in the minds of millions of Americans that the enemy is real and the U.S. Administration will protect the lives of its citizens.”
The “counter-terrorism” campaign against the Islamic State has contributed to the demonization of Muslims, who in the eyes of Western public opinion are increasingly associated with the jihadists.
Anybody who dares to question the validity of the “Global War on Terrorism” is branded a terrorist and subjected to the anti-terrorist laws.
“The ultimate objective of the “Global War on Terrorism” is to subdue the citizens, totally depoliticize social life in America, prevent people from thinking and conceptualizing, from analyzing facts and challenging the legitimacy of the inquisitorial social order which rules America.
“The Obama Administration has imposed a diabolical consensus with the support of its allies, not to mention the complicit role of the United Nations Security Council. The Western media has embraced the consensus; it has described the Islamic State as an independent entity, an outside enemy which threatens the Western World.”
