Report Says Americans, Not Mexicans, Arrested Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman

A controversial report has surfaced in wake of  the July 11 prison escape of drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán.

The website, Intercept reports that Presco, an investigative Mexican magazine, is saying that initial reports about the February 2014 arrest of Guzmanin  weren’t true. The media reported back then that the arrest was made by elite Mexican marines, with U.S. federal agencies playing a crucial intelligence support role.

But the magazine, citing U.S. government sources, claims that account is false.

Proceso reports that the agents who arrested Guzmán weren’t Mexicans, but rather Americans –agents from the DEA and and U.S. Marshals Service who were dressed as Mexican marines, working alongside one or more unidentified U.S. intelligence agencies.

Government officials from Mexico and the U.S. have yet to dispute the accuracy of the story, Intercept reports.
