Mexico Warnings

The US Government has issued an official warning to employees and citizens in Mexico for the first time in the ongoing drug war.  The message, which was issued from the U.S. Consulate General in Monterrey, said U.S. officials had “information that Mexican criminal gangs may intend to attack U.S. law-enforcement officers or U.S. citizens in the near future in Tamaulipas, Nuevo León and San Luis Potosí”, the three states along the US/Mexico border.

It is not news that northern Mexico is in chaos, but it is interesting that the State Department has chosen to issue a warning now.  State Department officials did not comment when asked if there was a specific threat or incident that triggered the warning.
