This is not directly related; but has some obvious implications for Gunrunner. It is an MSNBC story describing how in the past 5 years, 80 U.S. Customs officials have been arrested for corruption and hundreds more are under investigation. It also goes on to detail corruption in law enforcement in many poor counties along the border. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42061290..._news-americas
None of that is particularly shocking I guess; but it makes an interesting bacdrop for the allegations here.
