U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to
traffic several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for
information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in
a U.S. federal court.

The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who
was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges
in Chicago. The court in Chicago held a status hearing today and
ordered the U.S.

government to respond to Zambada-Niebla's motion containing the
allegations by Sept. 11.

The case could prove to be a bombshell on par with the ATF's
"Operation Fast and Furious," except that instead of U.S. guns being
allowed to walk across the border, the Sinaloa cartel was allowed to
bring drugs into the United States over a five-year period, the
documents allege.

Zambada-Niebla, who worked for Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman Loera, is the
son of Ismael "Mayo" Zambada-Garcia, another drug lord associated with
the Sinaloa cartel.
