Guest: Claudio Holzner, PhD, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Utah Infamous drug lord El Chapo is back in the same Mexican prison he escaped from six months ago. Authorities have released video of the raid when they recaptured the leader of the Sinaloa drug cartel that looks like footage from a Hollywood movie – heavily armed marines pounding down doors, searching hidden passageways. Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaped through a sewer into a stolen car before he was apprehended. In a strange twist, authorities say it was Guzman’s desire to see his name in Hollywood lights that led to his capture.
