World: Did the drug war lead to the slaying of a U.S. official in Mexico?

  • We take very seriously when our employees are harmed, whether the intention was to harm U.S. employees or not. The question of whether this represents some ratcheting up of the drug war will depend on the reason behind the killings.
  • Deputy assistant Secretary of State in charge of Mexico Roberta S. Jacobson • Regarding the killings of a U.S. consular aide (along with her husband) in Mexico. Another consular employee’s husband was also killed and her children wounded. If it turns out that this killing was a conscious attempt to ratchet up the drug war in Mexico, we could be seeing some crazy stuff going down. source
