In addition to allowing the Sinaloa cartel to bring massive amounts of drugs into the US, Vicente alleged that the US provided semi-automatic weapons to the Sinaloa cartel in a bid to arm them against their rivals:
Vicente Zambada Niebla was an informant. But who was he informing on? And what did he get in exchange? According to Vicente:…the Sinaloa Cartel under the leadership of defendant’s father, Ismael Zambada-Niebla and ‘Chapo’ Guzman, were given carte blanche to continue to smuggle tons of illicit drugs into Chicago and the rest of the United States and were also protected by the United States government from arrest and prosecution in return for providing information against rival cartels which helped Mexican and United States authorities capture or kill thousands of rival cartel members. [emphasis added]
Zambada-Niebla claims that under a “divide and conquer” strategy, the U.S. helped finance and arm the Sinaloa Cartel through Operation Fast and Furious in exchange for information that allowed the DEA, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies to take down rival drug cartels.
This was completely contrary to the story the public was given about Fast and Furious:
Operation Fast and Furious was launched in 2009 by top DOJ officials, in collaboration with the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) as part of a strategy to identify and eliminate arms trafficking networks. Instead of prosecuting the individual “straw purchasers” who buy guns for the cartels, ATF agents would track the guns to the top bosses of Mexico’s powerful drug cartels.
Far from being just a program to track guns to higher level targets, Zambada Niebla was stating point blank that the US government was arming the Sinaloa cartel for war.
I actually cook the Wild turkey.
Usually every month I cook a turkey, and keep the drippings and most of the darker meat to mix with my dog's dry food.
My dogs won the doggie lottery.

The actual trade-in value depends on the iPhone, with the iPhone 4S worth up to $90 and the iPhone 6 worth up to $400. (The iPhone 6 Plus is not eligible.) BlackBerry then sweetens the deal by kicking in an additional $150 as a topper for each iPhone.
The deal will run through February 13, but it's good only in North America. Customers must buy the $599 to $699 unlocked Passport phone through either BlackBerry's website or Amazon. The trade-in amount comes in the form of a Visa prepaid card.
BB would rather spend $$$ that in fact acquires a customer, who they hope to keep for life, than spend big $$$$ on advertising campaigns that is a roll of the dice and perhaps get very few customers.
Once these Passports are in consumers hands then every customer becomes a walking advertisement!
That dumb f at wells fargo does not understand MARKETING and ACQUIRING CUSTOMERS per $$$$$ spent!
I take the thumbs down as not a taylor swift fan!

ezpass stole over a million enterprise customers from good and mobitron and this offer will steal millions of customers from iphone!
Millions do hate their iphone and its myriad of problems and millions more waffle on their iphone ownership!

in Canada turkey day is in oct.(Canadian holidays aren't well known by americans) gives some space between holidays.
Looks like black Friday will be huge which should keep a fire under the rally to after xmas.
I really believe this is a smart move the BB. Word of mouth and in the hands of consumers is the best advertisement.
It sure worked with ezpass, taking a million enterprise customers from good and mobiltron and fire??
turkey day and xmas and then new years.
are you ready???
my niece, who got her MD in New York has returned to Canada to take a specialty, thought BB was out of biz. She basically said it's all iphone or droids. Her iphone just shattered after a short drop (durability is an iphone weakness) and she is going to get the passport for xray reading capabilities, however, she has never used a qwerty phone.
no foreign gvt agitating them.
They want regime change and a transfer of assets to them!
