MEXICO CITY (AP) -- The world's most-wanted drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, arrived at the Mexico City airport after his arrest early Saturday and was being taken directly to prison, said Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam.


Guzman appeared in a white shirt and dark pants and had a mustache and full head of dark hair as he was held at the neck and escorted by two masked marines.

Vigil said Mexico may decide to extradite Guzman to the U.S. to avoid any possibility that he escapes from prison again, as he did in 2001 in a laundry truck - a feat that fed his larger-than-life persona.

That's just part of the lie in fact he walked out the front gates on the prison accompanied by high level Mexican govt officials-who you can bet were paid a King's ransom for their cooperation.

And that is why the US gubmint wants him now before his money starts to work it's magic.

I am totally fascinated that he was "pudgy", wore a "white shirt and dark pants and had a mustache and full head of dark hair". That is sooo unmentionably important to the story.

It's all about the image when you're a drug chief.

I would not want to be one of the anti-drug cops in Mexico. If the cartels find out who you are, it's not just you that they'll kill (after torture first), it's as many of your loved ones as they can get your hands on!

Thus the balaclavas most of them are wearing.

I know that is why they are wearing that, but it's not 100% infallible. Perhaps a crooked co-worker, boss, or someone that was privy to the identity of them? I will say that they have balls of steel for being able to do it, as not everyone would.

Hopefully they'll be able to get rid of the cartels altogether. It'll take a long time, but to get rid of them would make things a lot better for everyone.

It will for someone. Hopefully it isnt him though.

My only moral problem with drugs is knowing a lot of them come from guys like this and the other cartels down there or in other parts of the world. Mass murderers and terrorists. Its really surprising how cruel they are and they seem to take pride in it.

Indeed. Doesnt help that in some areas the only "good paying" jobs in Mexico are with drug cartels. I read an article about a guy who had been a teacher but went into doing drugs for the cartel and wound up in prison. He refused to give anyone up and said he had no regrets. Even with the teaching job he and his family were below the poverty line. He took the drug job because there was no legal alternative in the area to get him and his family out of poverty. He made enough money off of them to have his family live well, even with him no longer being in the picture. He considered the jail time a good trade for that. Who knows what his family thought of that choice. I disagree with what he did but I can understand it.

Witness claims El Chapo had sex with girls as young as 13

NEW YORK — Newly unsealed documents about notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman contains claims by witnesses that he had sex with minors he called “vitamins,” a disturbing allegation coming just as a jury is about to start deliberating in his U.S. drug-trafficking case.
According to papers made public late Friday, a key government co-operator told authorities Guzman had him drug girls as young as 13 before Guzman had sex with them at one of his Mexican hideouts in the late 2000s.
On Saturday, one of Guzman’s lawyers called the accusations “extremely salacious” and questioned the timing of the government filing.
Guzman “denies the allegations, which lack any corroboration and were deemed too prejudicial and unreliable to be admitted at trial,” attorney Eduardo Balarezo said in a statement. “It is unfortunate that the material was publicly released just prior to the jury beginning deliberations.”
The jury is set to begin deliberations Monday after a nearly three-month trial on charges that as the head of the Sinaloa cartel, Guzman oversaw a drug-smuggling empire that flooded the U.S. market with at least 200 tons (181 metric tons) of cocaine and made $14 billion off of it. The defence says co-operating witnesses have made Guzman a scapegoat for their own crimes.
The unsealing of the documents came at the request of The New York Times and Vice News. U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan had ordered prosecutors to review the material — orginally sealed because it was deemed unrelated to the drug charges — and make portions of it public within four days after the government rested its case against Guzman.
One document says Colombian drug trafficker Alex Cifuentes, while living with Guzman around 2007, told investigators someone known as Comadre Maria would offer photos of young girls to Guzman. For $5,000, the one of Guzman’s choice would be sent to a secluded Sinaloa ranch, Cifuentes said, according to the papers.
Guzman directed Cifuentes to put a “powdery substance” into the girls’ drinks before sex, said Cifuentes. Guzman “called the youngest of the girls his ‘vitamins’ because he believed that sexual activity with young girls gave him ‘life,”‘ he added.
Cifuentes also admitted having sex with minors but without drugging them. The document says other co-operating witnesses have backed up the claims about Guzman’s interactions with underage girls.
The co-operator told the government that he saw Guzman “consulting with a witch doctor from whom he obtained sake oils,” the papers said.
The documents also describe an interview with Guzman conducted by a Drug Enforcement Administration agent in 1998 at a Mexican prison where Guzman escaped two years later. They say he allegedly asked if he could avoid extradition to the United States if he provided information to the DEA about the drug-running operations of rival cartels.
