This week, Secretary Antony Blinken went before the Congress and answered a question about Mexico. It went like this:
Secretary of State Antony Blinken agreed Wednesday that he believed parts of Mexico are controlled by the drug cartels and not by the Mexican government.
Blinken was being questioned by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, who held a press conference earlier this month and said he wanted cartels to be labeled terrorist organizations and pressed Congress to authorize the use of military force to destroy Mexican drug labs.
Graham then asked Blinken if he believed ‘that fentanyl coming from Mexico is killing Americans by the tens of thousands.’
‘It is. And it’s also killing Mexicans,’ Blinken replied.
And then you heard a nuclear bomb go off in Mexico.
