President López Obrador ridicules journalist for fentanyl footage

Mexico City, May 4 (Prensa Latina) President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday ridiculed T.V. Imagen journalist Ciro Gomez, who projected and commented as real an apocryphal footage that fentanyl is being manufactured in Mexico.

It is a set-up made by English journalists, who even took old pictures of a Philadelphia street as new ones, and use other real ones of clandestine meths manufacturing in Sinaloa and displayed them as fentanyl.

The Navy Secretary Admiral José Rafael Ojeda denied the rather crude set-up by the English journalists. He proved these were not current images and too far from being a real manipulation of fentanyl, for which a very special protection is being required in order not to inhale it and die instantly from its contact.

Ciro Gomez assured there is a crisis in Canada as well, but does not argue it, and cites it only to blame Mexico -his partner in the free trade agreement- and to say without proving it that “precursors” that “are seen” in the footage come from China.

However, what is clearly shown is a clandestine meth lab full of fuel drums.

Admiral Ojeda said that all those criminals who illegally manufacture fentanyl know these risks and know that a small dose of 1.5 grams is enough to kill if inhaled. And all people in the footage have no protection, not even wearing gloves.

The journalist who is supposedly in the lab to make the report did not have even the slightest protection as he should be completely covered with a special suit.

López Obrador repeated that Canada and the United States continue seeing the speck in someone else’s eye, but not the log in their own, and add fentanyl to the agenda against Mexico with absurd set-ups of this type.

He said the fentanyl pandemic has not been dealt with in the United States and they want to use it in a deceitful way to blame Mexico, that is why these things must be reported, because there is a lot of manipulation in conventional media fabricating guilty parties as it is already a global evil criminally used for political and financial purposes.
