More On Drug Dealer In Border Agents Case

Oh, joy of joys. This is the guy that Federal Prosecutor Johnny Sutton used as a complainant against Border Agents

( – Cipriano Ortiz-Hernandez hung his head and confessed that he was storing marijuana in his Clint, Texas, home when federal authorities turned up there.

He admitted to Drug Enforcement Administration agents that he was being paid to hide the drugs by dealers who delivered marijuana on ten occasions in the four months before the agents showed up at his door on Oct. 23, 2005.

According to DEA documents labeled "sensitive," obtained by Cybercast News Service, Ortiz-Hernandez identified one of the drug dealers as Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila, a Mexican who at the time was under a federal immunity deal for a previous drug offense.

Aldrete-Davila was the man at the center of a notorious case in which two U.S. Border Patrol agents were imprisoned earlier this year, unleashing a controversy that continues and will be the subject of Senate hearings this week.

On Feb. 17, 2005, Aldrete-Davila tried to smuggle more than 700 pounds of marijuana across the Mexican border into Texas. Border agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean confronted him and he was shot in the buttocks while escaping on foot back into Mexico. Federal prosecutors struck a deal with the Mexican to testify against the two agents in exchange for immunity from prosecution for that offense.

Aldrete-Davila returned to the United States, received free medical treatment at an Army hospital, and was also given "humanitarian passes" allowing him to enter and exit the country as he pleased, while receiving medical treatment for the bullet wound.

Definitely read the rest.

I do think Sutton is going to have a lot of questions to answer when a Senate panel convenes Tuesday. Unlike so many seated by the Democrats, this one is not going to be about petty political politics. Dianne Feinstein is not happy with what has gone on in the case, along with many Democrats and Republicans, both in the House and Senate, and I am backing her all the way, because some issues transcend liberal and conservative policies.
