Was there a connection between DHS agent and smuggler??

World Net Daily claims it official documents in its possession that indicate a Department of Homeland Security agent played a major role in managing the drug smuggler. World Net Daily also claims that the agent conducted the field investigation in the incident that landed Border Patrol officers Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean in federal prison for more than a decade.

World Net Daily claims that in a heavily redacted 77-page DHS report submitted to Congress Wednesday there is no explicit discussion of the role that the DHS Special Agent played in the case.

If this is true, there should be an investigation into DHS and the conduct of the agent and his supervisors.

For additional details regarding this very confusing case, please read the following at World Net Daily: Border-agent investigator had tie to smuggler?????

A recently retired, high-ranking DEA official is calling on Congress to investigate the role played by a U.S. Attorney in the cover-up of an informant’s participation in mass murder in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico.

The DEA official, Sandalio Gonzalez, is pointing the finger squarely at Johnny Sutton, the U.S. Attorney in San Antonio, Texas. He claims that had Sutton taken action sooner in the case, more than a dozen people might still be alive today. As a result, Gonzalez says Congress must act now to get to the bottom of what Sutton knew, and when he knew it.

According to Gonzalez, who, until January of this year, served as special agent in charge of the DEA’s El Paso field office, Sutton was clearly aware of the informant’s participation in the murders by at least Feb. 24, 2004. That’s when Gonzalez fired off a letter to Sutton blowing the whistle on the informant’s role in the murders.

While working as an ICE informant, Lalo participated in up to a dozen murders between August 2003 and mid-January 2004 at the House of Death in Ciudad Juárez. Lalo had penetrated a narco-trafficking organization — headed by Heriberto Santillan-Tabares — that employed police officers in Juárez to help carry out the murders.

Public records show that Lalo assisted with the murders, with the knowledge of his ICE handlers and an assistant U.S. attorney in El Paso, Texas. Once the news of the murders became public, the law enforcers involved in the botched drug-war case went to great lengths to cover up their involvement — with the assistance of high-level officials within DHS and the Department of Justice, including the U.S. Attorney in San Antonio, Johnny Sutton.

In February 2004, Sandalio Gonzalez, who was the head of DEA’s operations in El Paso, wrote a letter to Sutton and an ICE official to express his concerns about the ICE agents’ complicity in the murders — which ultimately led to an attempt being made on the lives of a DEA agent and his family by narcos connected to the House of Death.
