An interesting post form the Jeff Musto Blog was passed along to me recently. Although I may not agree with everything, he does bring up some interesting points. I say “He” as I’m not sure who actually wrote it. Its shows up on Jeff’s blog, but then its also on Banderas News with Charles Simpson given credit, but then on Jeff’s blog at the end he has Adamarie King mentioned from “a” Conde Nast Magazine. But it still makes an interesting read!
Update: Was just contacted by Charles Simpson and he confirmed that he did indeed right this article. Sorry about the confusion Charles, it was a little confusing trying to figure out where Adamarie came into all this. JY

Our inability to prevent the weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border to arm these criminals causes the deaths of police officers, soldiers and civilians,” Clinton said. The other large illegal business that is smuggled into the U.S.A. that no one likes to talk about is Human Traffic for prostitution. This “business” is globally now competing with drugs in terms of profits.
