US Guns to Mexican Drug Gangs

Hosted by

Mexico's drug cartels commit bloody violence with weapons imported from the US. We talk with an investigator for Congress who says law enforcement agencies don't have a strategy to deal with the problem.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the President escalated his rhetoric today in response to political repression. We hear about that and about new challenges posed by an old adversary as North Korea escalates its provocations of the US and the United Nations.
