A Mexican federal judge has ordered that two nephews of a Sinaloa Cartel leader be held for 40 days while a federal investigation is held. The investigation is being held to determine the level of involvement of the two men in the cartel. The men were apprehended in Tijuana on April 25, along with their bodyguards and another suspect.

Omar Ismael Zambada Apodaca, 23, was arrested along with his 28-year-old cousin, Sergio Rodolfo Cázares Zambada. The two men were found with weapons and 20 kilograms of cocaine. Both men are nephews of Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, considered by most to be the second in power of the Sinaloa Cartel.

According to officials from the attorney general’s office, the investigation will continue until approximately June 7.

And then what? That judge had some mighty big "cojones" to order them locked up. His life is now likely in danger.

That's not the story here. The real story is that the son of Zambada was arrested in Mexico City by US forces and whisked to a federal detention center in the midwest. There he has told of a quid pro quo between first the Bush regime and now Obama's. They were allowed to bring US guns into Mexico in exchange for info on rival groups. That's the story no one will touch because the dirt is on every pols hands.
