Bomb damages U.S. consulate in Mexico
April 10, 2010, 5:11PM

MEXICO CITY An attacker threw an explosive device over the wall around the U.S. consulate in the border city of Nuevo Laredo, breaking windows and startling employees inside but causing no injuries, the U.S. Embassy said Saturday.

The attack, which took place about 11:30 p.m. Friday, is under investigation, embassy spokesman Claude Young said.

Nuevo Laredo, across the Rio Grande River from Laredo, and other cities have seen increased violence in recent weeks as powerful Mexican drug cartels battle over control of lucrative trafficking along the border.

U.S. State Department employees in the area had not been victimized until last month. That's when gunmen separately chased down and killed an American woman, who worked at the U.S. consulate in Ciudad Juarez, along with her husband in their SUV and another man married to a Mexican consulate worker in a similar vehicle. All three had been at the same party.

1. End the failed 'War on Drugs!'
Far too much in blood, treasure and time wasted on a bad and deadly policy already.

3. Isn's that the grandson of Cuban US supported dictator Fulgensio Batista
standing beside Jeb Bush? Raoul Cantero was made a member of the Florida Supreme Court, placed there by Jeb Bush, even though he has NO useful experience for the job.

Small world, isn't it? Here's his grandfather, the torture-loving, death-squad using Fulgencio Batista with one of his cabinet members, former Speaker of the House, Rafael Diaz-Balart, father of U.S. Florida Congressmen, Lincoln and Mario Diaz-Balart, good friends also of Jeb Bush. Rafael Diaz-Balart was originally an attorney for the United Fruit Company in Cuba, with which Prescott Bush was closely connected, and of which George H. W. Bush was a major stockholder when United Fruit changed its name to "Chiquita."

In the middle, Rafael Diaz-Balart standing between two Masferrer brothers, the
one on the left being a publisher, Senator, and head of his own death squad
called "Masferrer's Tigers." He was assassinated by a car bomb in Miami.,_president_of_Cuba,_1952.jpg

The Cuban President, Fulgencio Batista, the one our right-wingers loved, along with the U.S.'s own organized criminals, the U.S. Mafia

Lincoln and Mario Diaz Balart right behind Jeb Bush and Mel Martinez, a Cuban "exile" and George W. Bush's head of Housing and Urban Developement.

Mel and his boss.
