The head of Mexico’s National Defense Secretariat said in an interview that Mexico had made a mistake in deploying the military as part of the country’s war against drug cartels and organized crime.
“Of course we have committed errors,” said Gen. Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda, in an interview with Mexican news outlet Pulso in mid-March.
“One of those was when we entered fully combat against drugs,” he continued.
“The military is not intended for the work it does today,” Cienfuegos said. “No one with responsibility for this institution is prepared to do the functions of the police.”
