The information he has is that the families of FIVE National Guardsmen were snatched from their residences and were being held hostage, with threats of imminent murder if Ovidio was not released immediately.
That’s why the Security Minister, Alfonso Durazo, ordered the release of Ovidio.



Well, I dont understand why AMLO would not have referred to this, in his press briefing. That would go a long way towards giving him justification for ordering the release of Guzman's son. People could understand that. The reports that I have read say that Durazo was taking orders directly from AMLO, on the release.


AMLO is taking a real beating on this release. In the Mexican press, in the international press, on social media (which I guess is important, these days :? ).


What a difficult situation this is putting Mexico in........all choices are tough ones to make.

AMLO is taking heat, but remember, the miltary guys were trying to do a good deed.And when the small force tried to leave with him, they were already surrounded. He basically stopped a massacre, and this follows the long standing policy of all the political parties in Mexico.

Its the same old story, there was a mole in the government on Chapo's payroll. This cartel operation to block streets with trucks, have over 50 guys armed around the house, and launch a jail strike as a diversion at the same time had to be ordered and organized at least a day in advance.

Mexico has never wanted to use Blackhawks armed with mini guns in residential neighborhoods, and the cartels know it. So the Navy General probably had his hands tied by this long standing policy and was not allowed to provide armed air helicopter support for his ground team.

If AMLO maintains his safety first policy then guerilla warfare will always be one sided as the cartels will not hold back.

Let's not forget that one of AMLO's campaign slogans was, if I'm translating correctly, "hugs, not bullets".

The massacre has already happened. What - 30,000 this year? Kill the kid and hand him on a bridge. Then send in the armored cards and copters. This scenario is going to be #1 in their playbook.
