The article discusses the need of the U.S. and Mexico to cooperate to fight drug trafficking, the number one financial source of terrorists.

Both countries make various moves to cut off that terrorist funding, including the disband of some drug cartels by Colombia through its Plan Colombia operation and Border Protection provided by marine units.
