What to Know: Hackers have exposed evidence that the Mexican military has cooperated with the criminal cartels, even selling the cartels weapons.

The TPPF Take: The data is damning.

“The hack of sensitive Defense Secretariat data by self-described ‘hacktivist’ group Guacamaya has put the Mexican government on the defensive, revealing emails, photos, videos, and military intelligence assessments raising alarm over alleged cooperation between prominent politicians and criminal groups,” says TPPF’s Melissa Ford. “It also exposed the secrets of an opaque and hermetic institution, which has long resisted civilian oversight and has been accumulating power throughout AMLO’s administration.”
