Texas Gov. Rick Perry, in a blog posting Friday, had blamed the Sinaloa drug cartel for the the bombings in Las Vegas and Acapulco.
Minutes ago, Perry released a statement in response to the FBI’s conclusion that it was in fact the Los Zetas cartel, not the Sinaloa, that was responsible.
“At the time, I thought it was prudent to release information I thought relevant to my constituents. It appears, in retrospect, to have not been as accurate as one would hope.”
“I am committed to battling insurgencies on our borders no matter who they be. FBI director Mueller has been helpful in communicating new developments to my constituents and the citizens of the U.S. border states.”
