Mexican Druglord Thanks American Officials for Keeping Drugs Illegal

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera, the alleged head of the Snialoa drug cartel in Mexico, publicly thanked American officials for keeping drugs illegal, supposedly noting to a confidant, "I couldn't have gotten so stinking rich without George Bush, George Bush Jr., Ronald Reagan, even El Presidente Obama." Mexico's President Calderon is conversely condemning the same officials for not legalizing drugs, as "Prohibition [creates] gangsters." President Calderon told a confidant.

Notice that this is literally "information;" this was reported by sources claiming to be close to the primary source. This is from an article in The Huffington Post. While the sentiment is correct, the piece may be a plant. Or it may be the level of "journalism" we can expect online.
