Mexican drug cartel was plotting to blow up the Falcon Dam

05:09 |

U.S. feared Falcon attack | font, small, span - Local - Brownsville Herald: "Mexican drug cartel was plotting to blow up the Falcon Dam, sending billions of gallons of water flooding across the Rio Grande Valley. Rumors that the Zetas drug cartel was plotting to use dynamite to blow up the five-mile span west of Roma spread quickly among local, state and federal law enforcement in late April, authorities said.
But while U.S. officials boosted patrols and surveillance across the area in response to the threat, they said this week that there was no credible evidence that such a plot was ever in the works.
The Texas Depart-ment of Public Safety sent a bulletin to area agencies that clearly stated intelligence about the possible threat was unconfirmed by other sources, authorities said. The response is just one in a series of recent hazards investigated among U.S. authorities based on intelligence that later proved to be false.
'We took it as they were bombing the dam and opening up the gates,' said Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez. 'I didn’t really know what to think. These guys are so stupid, so coked up, you don’t know.'"
