EL PASO - The Mexican army paraded six suspects in front of cameras saying they took part in the murder of ICE agent Jaime Zapata.

Last week's shooting in central Mexico injured El Paso agent Victor Avila and was one of the worst attacks on U.S. agents in Mexico in more than a decade.

The attack sparked outrage in the U.S. and is the latest sign of the escalating drug war in Mexico.

The State Department praised the six arrests and repeated Washington's strong support for Mexico's crackdown on drug cartels.

Another Calderon Dog and Pony show, parade these clowns, take the credit, give them their 90 days and they are out on the streets again. When is Washington going to realize we are throwing millions of dollars/lives now to a country that is not willing to win THEIR drug war, only win our dollars, and pass it on to the next mexican administration. Only a 3% convict rate on all people caught and paraded in the last year in mexico for these crimes. DUH????

Well if Mexican authorities say so, then it must be true! And I am Buz Light Year from star command, haha!
