Cartel: The Invasion of Mexico's Drug Wars, with Sylvia Longmire

Error 404 (Not Found)!!1

Ms. Longmire is one of the nation’s foremost subject matter experts on Mexico’s drug war and border security issues. She is also a service-disabled veteran, having served in the United States Air Force as an officer and AFOSI Special Agent for over eight years. During that time, she conducted numerous criminal investigations and worked extensively in the fields of counterintelligence, counterespionage, and force protection. During her last assignment, Ms. Longmire worked as a Latin America desk officer, analyzing issues in the US Southern Command area of responsibility that might affect the security of deployed Air Force personnel. After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and medically retired from the Air Force in 2005, Ms. Longmire worked until 2009 as a senior intelligence analyst for the California state fusion center and the California Emergency Management Agency’s Situational Awareness Unit, focusing almost exclusively on Mexican drug trafficking organizations and southwest border violence issues. Between 2004 and 2011, she regularly lectured on terrorism in Latin America at the Air Force Special Operations School’s Dynamics of International Terrorism course. She holds a Master of Arts degree from the University of South Florida in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, with a focus on the Cuban and Guatemalan revolutions....

She's a pretty good source, she is somewhat brave, I use to follow her blog where she would talk to all. Someone asked her if she'd ever been threatened, it sounds like a little bit. Also, from the reading on her per above, she has suffered from MS and I've seen pictures of her wheelchair bound.  Perhaps, I will see what else can be added on about Silvia.  She seems to largely avoid taking political stances. Her terminology is often technical.
