Mexico charges agents with trying to kill CIA men

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican prosecutors on Friday charged 14 federal police officers with trying to kill two CIA officers and a Mexican navy captain in an August ambush south of the capital.

The announcement by the Attorney General's Office did not state a motive for the attack, but said the officers have been charged with attempted homicide and damage to property.

The police officers were off duty and driving private vehicles when they opened fire, shooting 152 times at the U.S. Embassy vehicle, which was carrying the CIA officers and navy captain to a military training camp, the prosecutor's office said.

The U.S. vehicle tried to escape and more vehicles joined the aggressors in the chase as they continuously shot the diplomatic vehicle. The two CIA men were wounded, but survived. The Navy captain was not injured.

Prosecutors say the attackers changed into uniforms and arrived in police patrol cars when they were questioned.

The statement said the fact that the vehicle was armored helped the men survive.

Homicide and attempted homicide charges are usually state crimes in Mexico, but an official with the Attorney General's Office said this was a more serious case because the suspects were federal police. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

The Mexican officers have spent nearly 80 days in a form of house arrest Mexico uses in organized crime cases.

Mexican authorities initially said the attack was probably an accident by well-intentioned officers who thought they were shooting at criminals. Later, U.S. and Mexican officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity said they were leaning toward the idea that it was a targeted attack masterminded by a drug cartel.

Since then, Attorney General Marisela Morales has acknowledged her office was investigating whether organized crime was behind the attack.

Damnnn! Serious props to whoever armored that vehicle. It took one helluva beating and did it's job. Look at the bullet strikes in the glass on the driver's side...exactly where the driver's head would have been

I wonder if they knew who was in the car of if it was a random assault because it had American plates.

I sure hate it for the cartel now....assaulting Mexican police officers, a Mexican Naval officer and American CIA agents.
I hope they have good running shoes.

How is Mexico going to clean up its crime when the cops are the criminals ?
I feel sorry for Mexicans.

But you know what......? The guys from the Mexican Federal Police, Mexican Navy, CIA and American State Department won't be f ing around when it comes to prosecute them either.

Life is going to get realll tough for those guys real soon.

War on drugs? Uh huh, we gave them the guns. Hey, don't kill us... do you have guns to kill us? No? Do you need guns? Yes, Ok take these. You can't even buy this sh!t. Wish the us government would sell me fully auto's for nothing, lose trace of them... die by them. Then have the same branches unable to take responsibility for the deaths. We all walk away clean... WUT!! Makes a good story ya? Gives, us someone to hate...

Mexico has drug cartels because Americans have an insatiable demand for drugs. No demand, no drug cartels.

The CIA agents were going to a military base the truck had diplomatic plates so the attack was definitly planed they knew who was in the truck. The federal police agents worked for the Beltran cartel...

They were lucky! this jeep was the secretary of security of the state of michoacan.. Took 2700 rounds including barret 50cal shots, she and the driver lived.
