FBI Webpage Highlights Similarities Between al Qaeda and Cartels

Comparing Mexico’s cartel violence to that of al Qaeda is apparently controversial.

An FBI webpage quoted an agent calling Mexico’s drug cartels more violent than al Qaeda — a comment sure to grab attention, but which doesn’t tell the whole story, the agency said.

On its website, the FBI was highlighting a special series of stories on law enforcement challenges along the Southwest border.

The report includes a quote from an unidentified senior agent based in El Paso, Texas, who says, “We think al Qaeda is bad, but they’ve got nothing on the cartels.”
