U.S. targets 8 Mexicans for drug trafficking along border

WASHINGTON,- The United States on Tuesday slapped sanctions on eight Mexican nationals, accusing them of acting as " plaza bosses" for the Sinaloa drug cartel along the Arizona-Mexico border.

The Department of Treasury added to its blacklist Cenobio Flores Pacheco (aka Luis Fernando Castro Villa), Jesus Alfredo Salazar Ramirez, Guillermo Nieblas Nava (aka Adelmo Niebla Gonzalez), Ramon Ignacio Paez Soto, Felipe De Jesus Sosa Canisales, Armando Lopez Aispuro, Jose Javier Rascon Ramirez and Raul Sabori Cisneros.

As a result, U.S. citizens are barred from doing business with these persons and all of their assets under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen.

"Each of the eight plaza bosses operates as a Sinaloa Cartel leader within their specific area of operation along the Sonora- Arizona corridor of the U.S.-Mexico International Boundary, which extends for nearly 375 miles," the Treasury said in a statement.

It said the Sinaloa Cartel depends on these plaza bosses, leaders of a particular geographic area, to "coordinate, direct and support" the smuggling of illegal drugs from Mexico into the U. S. and the smuggling of illicit contraband from the U.S. into Mexico.

"Today's designation marks another step in OFAC's efforts to specifically target the narcotics traffickers responsible for the horrific acts of violence committed along the Arizona border with Mexico," said Adam Szubin, director of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

"We will continue to work alongside our partners in federal law enforcement as well as the Mexican government to financially cripple and dismantle the Sinaloa Cartel," he said.

Since June 2000, Washington has identified 97 drug kingpins and blacklisted more than 1,200 entities and individuals worldwide.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
