Mexican president dismisses US govt report on illicit drugs as ‘opinion’

“This is an unmistakable example of the decomposition of the government, of how the civil service was degrading,” Obrador said. He also pledged his full support to the heads of Mexico’s army and navy, calling them “incorruptible.”

The president also pledged to continue rooting out compromised government officials.

“If we’re not talking about a narco state, one can certainly talk about a narco government, and without doubt, about a government of mafiosi,” Obrador stated. “We’re cleaning up, purifying public life.”

Obrador also revealed that the arrest of Cienfuegos was apparently linked to the case against another former high-profile official, Genaro García Luna, who served as Mexico’s security minister from 2006 to 2012. He was arrested in the US last year on drug charges, the president added.
