Marcos Arturo Beltran Leyva, “jefe de jefe”of the Beltran Leyva cartel was betrayed by his chief lieutenant–Edgar Villareal Valdez, “el Barbie”” who was head of the cartel’s enforcement/security division.
Valdez disappeared right before Arturo opened the door to his condo and was shot dead with armor piercing bullets. He was planning to meet with “Gen. Leopoldo Diaz Perez, commander of Zona Militar 24 (state of Morelos), along with two other Mexican army officers–a captain and a major” who were arrested that night. Gosh, now why would a general be meeting with a drug lord? Hmmm.
I really hope this kind of madness doesn’t spill over the border into the US.
