President Felipe Calderon and other Mexican government officials are accusing American manufacturers and retailers of providing the guns that are illegally exported to Mexico by the drug cartels.
A federal law enforcement official told the Law Enforcement Examiner that the U.S. Justice Department is trying to avoid involvement in the Mexican government's plan to sue gun manufacturers and retailers in American courts. Many Americans have been critical of President Barack Obama for his allowing President Calderon to blame the U.S. for Mexico's violence and his scolding of Americans who wish tighter border security and tougher sanctions against illegal aliens.
"Calderon blames the U.S. for his crime, his poverty, his corruption and President Obama stands there as if giving his silent consent. Billions of American dollars pour into Mexico and these corrupt politicians still bellyache," said former New York narcotics enforcement officer Tom Carbonara.
