|Rio Doce is reporting this is Lazca|
Full Statement of PJGE and SEMAR( Sec of Navy):
Name: Lazcano Lazcano Heriberto
Note: the last paragraph means, they were finished with their exam and collections of evidence and released the bodies to the funeral parlor and the Sabinas police. The APP/535/2012 is the case number of the Sabinas police. This may explain why the bodies were no longer under guard. Some reports say federal authorities did not know at that point the identity of the dead men, however, autopsies are rarely done in Mexico, especially is small cities, the fact that it was conducted in this case, lends itself to the thought they knew the indentification of the dead man as being Lazcano. When the custody of the body was completed they transferred custody to the state and local authorities.
In a statement, the Navy of Mexico and Coahuila PGJE (state attorney general) confirmed “that based on the analysis of photographs and fingerprints of an alleged criminal killed over the weekend after a confrontation in Sabinas, Coahuila, it was found that matched Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano”.

Iran, Israel on Verge of Agreement
Sam Vaknin, Ph.D. – 10/5/2012
Prompted by senior figures in both the current, Obama, administration and the previous, Bush administration, Israel agreed to major concessions in secret negotiations with Iran which have been taking place in Geneva since April of last year.
House Oversight leaders sent a letter to Hillary Clinton asking why requests for more protection were denied to the U.S. mission in Libya by officials prior to the violent and deadly terrorist attack that killed Ambassador Stevens.
Why did the Obama administration go to such lengths early on to portray the attacks as “spontaneous”? Why did it take more than three weeks for U.S. investigators to reach the scene?

After Israeli fighter jets shot down a drone over the Yatir forest in the south Mount Hebron area on Saturday, the army is trying to figure out what its destination was.
YNET News One of the possibilities the security establishment is looking into is that the unmanned aircraft, which was apparently Iranian-made, was on its way to test the option of infiltrating the nuclear reactor in Dimona, perhaps even to examine the option of targeting the plant in a future conflict.
And we can thank Barack Hussein Obama for helping the Iranian drone program along. As CNN reports:
President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States has asked Iran to return a U.S. drone aircraft that Iran claims it recently brought down in Iranian territory. “We’ve asked for it back. We’ll see how the Iranians respond.” (Now we know, Iran laughed)
A drone such as the one that was downed on Saturday after penetrating Israel’s airspace through the Mediterranean Sea could not cause serious damage to the reactor, but such an incident would mark a psychological victory for Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, whose leader Hassan Nasrallah recently threatened to attack strategic targets in Israel, including power plants.
The Iranians are aware that Israel has the capability to deal with rockets and missiles with its Iron Dome and Arrow air defense systems, but dealing with the threat of a slow drone poses a different kind of challenge.
Operating a drone by remote control from such a long distance requires advanced capabilities. By examining the drone’s parts, the army hopes to find out whether the drone was controlled from a command center in Lebanon or was directed by a space-based satellite navigation system (GPS) according to predetermined coordinates. If that was the case, the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) may have directed itself automatically and was supposed to return to its base or self-destruct over the sea.

The Taliban are threatening suicide bombings against an anti-drone march from Islamabad to South Waziristan led by notorious trust fund baby, Medea Benjamin, and her CodePink anti-American activists. Gee, wouldn’t it be a pity if an American drone found its way to this march?
The Blaze About three dozen American anti-war activists from CodePink are headed toward Pakistan’s militant-riddled tribal belt to protest U.S. drone strikes, but a faction of the Taliban has warned that suicide bombers will prevent their demonstration.
The anti-war activists– many of whom are from the far left women’s organization Code Pink– are reportedly joined by thousands of Pakistanis in their march, and their motorcade is being led by ex-cricket star turned politician Imran Khan. Militants have dismissed Khan as a mere tool of the West despite his condemnation of the drone strikes, which have killed many Islamist insurgent leaders. Odds are, the Taliban aren’t too crazy about getting help from women who dress up as giant vaginas either. The activists who gathered in Islamabad this week are also considering a hunger strike outside the US Embassy in the Pakistani capital as part of their anti-drone campaign.
Ahead of the march, local media carried reports Friday of alleged suicide bombings planned against the demonstration and a pamphlet distributed in a town along the march route warned participants they would face danger. The main Pakistani Taliban faction issued a statement criticizing the event. Ahsanullah Ahsan, the spokesman for the main Pakistani Taliban faction, issued a statement Friday calling Khan a “slave of the West” and saying that the militants “don’t need any sympathy” from such “a secular and liberal person.”

Obama Regime spits on Congressional mandate that made its $2 billion annual aid to Pakistan contingent on cooperation in counter-terrorism activities
With a wink and a nod, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has once again agreed to overlook Pakistan’s international transgressions, this time for its continued patronage of terrorism in the region, and waived legal requirements that made its $2 billion annual aid to Pakistan contingent on its cooperation in counter-terrorism, ending nuclear proliferation and building democratic institutions.
Times of India Secretary of state Hillary Clinton is said to have informed Congress, which has mandated the restriction subject to a national security waiver, that she is setting aside legal restrictions that would have blocked the $2 billion in US economic and military assistance. Disbursing the funds is “important to the national security interests of the United States,” she has told Congress.
The waiver is evidently linked to securing Pakistan’s cooperation in the upcoming US withdrawal from Afghanistan and preventing all all-out civil war in the country once the US leaves. A blunt way of putting it would be the US is trying to buy peace in the region on its way out while Pakistan is blackmailing Washington with its ability to create trouble in the land-locked country.
According to the latest report, Clinton, in her September 13 message to Congress, said she is waiving provisions of the 2009 Enhanced Partnership with Pakistan Act (EPPA) and the state department’s 2012 budget requiring that she certify that Islamabad has met certain conditions before the $2 billion in economic, military and counter-terrorism assistance can be disbursed.
The conditions require Islamabad to have made progress in “ceasing support, including by any elements within the Pakistani military or its intelligence agency, to extremist groups,” especially those that have attacked US.-led forces in Afghanistan. Islamabad is also required to make progress in stopping its extremists from operating in Pakistan, staging attacks in neighboring countries, and shutting down terrorist bases in the tribal areas and other parts of its country. The wording of the legislation, while not mentioning India, makes it implicitly clear that Pakistan has to cease using terrorism against its neighbors. Clinton’s waiver suggests it has not.
One way of looking at the latest development is that Clinton, by invoking the waiver clause, has implicitly charged Pakistan with continuing its dalliance with terrorism. She had previously certified Pakistani compliance even though the clean chit was privately challenged by many in her own administration (not to speak of Afghan and Indian officials) who believe that Pakistan has not given up on its use of terror groups to achieve its goals.
