Mexican Military Captures Drug Cartel Leader

Hosted by  • 

Mexico's new President, Enrique Peña Nieto, promised a new strategy in the war against brutal drug gangs, and today he scored a major victory. The Zeta's enforcer and leader, Miguel Ángel Treviño Morales, who once said he'd rather be captured dead than alive, was taken into custody yesterday without a shot being fired. Alfredo Corchado is Mexico Bureau Chief for the Dallas Morning News and author of Midnight in Mexico: A Reporter's Journey through a Country's Descent into Darkness.
