Mexican Police Beating of US TSA Official

The Counterterrorism Blog: WITH MEXICAN FRIENDS LIKE THIS WHO NEEDS ENEMIES

The stories coming out of Mexico are of increasing alarm. Not only the kidnapping of US citizens in border towns in Texas, the Syrians who came across the border, drug smuggling, shooting at American Border agents and now this overt action are alarming. The worst thing? The US State Dept and the TSA Dept are blaming the victim! Huh?

Excerpt:
Beside the emotional trauma inflicted on him by greedy, corrupt Mexican police officers, the U.S. agent suffered serious nerve damage to his hands. To make matters worse he faces possible retaliation from his own Government. Instead of lodging a forceful protest with the Mexican Government, the U.S. State Department is trying to keep the matter quiet. TSA, rather than stand up for its people, is blaming the Agent who was so viciously attacked for causing the incident "because he left his hotel room after dinner".
