Spanish-language TV network Univision recently reported on a never before seen picture of the most wanted Mexican Drug Lord in Mexico and the U.S., Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman. Guzman is the titular head of  Mexico’ most powerful drug cartels, the Sinaloa drug cartel. (Univision)

Guzman has been on the run since he broke out of a Mexican jail in 2001, and has not been seen since. The new picture of ‘El Chapo’ Guzman raises questions about how recent the picture of him really is. The picture shows a younger looking Guzman in  military garb, but skeptics point out that Guzman does not look his current age of 56.

It is common practice that Narcos like Guzman, will go to great lengths to protect their current identities, and have even gone as far as to alter their appearances to avoid detection. Has Guzman gone under the knife in an effort to hide from police?

The ongoing drug war in Mexico has resulted in thousands of murders, many of those murders committed by the Sinaloa cartel using U.S. made firearms. Now it is becoming more and more apparent that the Obama Administration’s botched ‘Fast and Furious’ arms-trading program is directly tied to Guzman and his Sinaloa Cartel.


Jason Howerton at The Blaze reports Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, known as the Sinaloa Cartel’s logistics coordinator, claims that under a “divide and conquer” strategy, “the U.S. helped finance and arm the Sinaloa Cartel through Operation Fast and Furious in exchange for information that allowed the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies to take down rival drug cartels. The Sinaloa Cartel was allegedly permitted to traffic massive amounts of drugs across the U.S. border as long as the intel kept coming.”-Policymic
