Mexican Army Helicopter Breaches Border, Fires on American Agents
The Mexican government is “sorry” that one of its helicopters flew across our southern border and tried to kill a bunch of American agents. Really, really sorry. But, dang it, it wasn’t their fault. Really, really.
But they aren’t sure what they are apologizing for apparently. Right after the incident they called up the US and apologized, but now they are saying the incident didn’t even happen!
TUCSON, Ariz. (CBS Las Vegas/AP) – Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border.
Mexican authorities were conducting a drug interdiction operation when the incident happened early Thursday morning on the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation. The Mexican chopper fired at the agents and then flew back into Mexico.
However, Mexican authorities have denied shooting at agents and say they were under attack during a mission to find smugglers on the border.
TomÃ¡s ZerÃ³n, the director of the Mexican attorney general’s office investigative office, said that Mexican military and federal police who were conducting an operation on a ranch in Altar, Sonora, were shot at by criminals. Mexican authorities never fired any weapons and in fact never crossed into the U.S. side of the border, he said.
Art Del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president, tells KVOA-TV, though, that they called and apologized for the incident.
Oh, they fired on our border agents, alright.
What is most likely is that some narco terrorist bribed a member of the Mexican military to use the copter to attack American agents and Mexican authorities don’t want to admit that.
