A Mexican magazine has revealed the Mexican government allowed a group of undercover U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents and their Colombian informant to launder millions in cash for a powerful Mexican drug trafficker and his Colombian cocaine supplier. According to the magazine Emeequis, the group of officials conducted at least 15 wire transfers to banks in the United States, Canada and China and smuggled and laundered about $2.5 million in the United States. They lost track of much of that money.
