President Felipe Calderon said Monday that he has improved the rule of the law and armored the economy in his six years in office.
Police found 49 mutilated bodies scattered in a pool of blood near the border with the United States, a region in which Mexico's two dominant drug cartels are trying to outdo each other in bloodshed while warring over smuggling routes.
Migrants in search of jobs in the U.S. face a gantlet of life-or-death risks in their treks across Mexico from its southern border: Many fall prey to extortion, kidnapping, rape and killing by crooked police and criminal gangs.

Fast and Furious was designed to stem the "Iron River" flowing from American gun stores into the cartels' arsenals. The bureau says it allowed gun smuggling so it could track the firearms and arrest the cartel members downstream. Not true.
