Mexico's drug problem is largely our country's fault. That's what Mexican President Felipe Calderon said Friday.
Calderon blames U.S. corruption for hampering his efforts to combat the violent drug cartels. Calderon said drug trafficking in the U.S. is fueled by corruption on the part of American authorities.
He added that having the world's biggest consumer next to Mexico is the main cause of the country's drug gang problem.
