Over the weekend we found out that the Department of Justice through the Drug Enforcement Administration has been laundering millions in dirty, bloody Mexican cartel money. Officials have justified the action by saying the goal is to bring down the "big fish" in the cartel, however, DOJ has been laundering this money for years and a significant cartel take down has yet to occur. Between the bloody and lethal results of Operation Fast and Furious combined with helping cartels by depositing their money for them, the question about what is legal or illegal government action arises.
