Sean Penn apparently led Mexican cops to El Chapo by interviewing him for Rolling Stone
Rolling Stone is getting a lot of clicks today for the interview Sean Penn did with Mexican drug lord Joaquín Guzmán Loera, a.k.a El Chapo. Titled, “El Chapo Speaks,” the piece presents the man responsible for a reported 3,000 deaths and a flood of heroin and other drugs into America as a cuddly Colonel Kurtz, as someone quipped. If you want to contribute to helping Rolling Stone pay off the coming libel judgment resulting from its fictitious rape story about a University of Virginia fraternity, go ahead and click on the link.
I am much more interested in what lies ahead for Mr. Penn, our very own Secret Agent Man in the War on Drugs. You would think that by now the various world-class villains to whom he finds himself attracted would notice that very bad things tend to happen to them after palling around with Sean.
There was that trip to Baghdad prior to the US invasion. How did that work out for Saddam?
Then there was all that palling around with another odious dwarf, Hugo Chavez. Venezuela went so far on the road to hell that toilet paper and other necessities became hard to come by in a country floating on a sea of oil, and then ol’ Hugo got cancer and died, despite the efforts of Cuba’s finest doctors, M.D. Anderson in Houston being streng verboten when you believe capitalism is at the root of all evil.
And now El Chapo learns that Sean set him up. AP reports:
A Mexican law enforcement official says recaptured drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's secret interview with actor Sean Penn helped authorities locate his whereabouts.
The last we learned of Penn’s armory, he was packing a 9mm Glock and a 38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, for which he has very hard-to-obtain concealed carry permits. If he hasn’t alresady, he may want to consider armed guards. El Chapo has lots of buddies, and he just might be a little upset at Sean. I don't suppose he reads the New York Post, but he may agree with the entiment expressed here, but for different reasons.
