MEXICO - President Felipe Calderon says the rivalry within U.S. intelligence agencies is hindering the war on drugs in his country.
In an interview with Mexico's "El Universal," Calderon rejected accusations from U.S. leaders that Mexican authorities were not working together to tackle the cartels.
Calderon said it was the U.S. that was not working together.
He accused the DEA, CIA and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement of being rivals and always passing the buck.
Calderon also accused the U.S. of failing to stem the tide of weapons going across the border to Mexico.
