Leaked Memos: DEA Sought to Assassinate Drug Kingpin in Mexico; President Obama Opposed on ‘Moral Grounds’

New memos leaked by WikiLeaks shows the DEA asked the White House for permission to kill notorious kingpin and fugitive Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the Latin Times reports.

The messages come from Fred Burton, vice president of intelligence and an expert on Mexican drug cartels.

“If the DEA can specifically locate the Sinaloa boss El Chapo, he will be assassinated,” Burton wrote, according to the documents.

Nevertheless, Guzman, kingpin of the notorious Sinaloa drug cartel, remains a fugitive.

For his part, President Obama said he wouldn’t approve an assassination.

“Obama won’t approve a finding for covert action inside MX based on ‘moral grounds,'” Burton wrote.
