A lawyer for "El Mochomo" denies he took a plea deal to act as a government witness.

The drug kingpin has escaped from maximum security jail cells twice.
Chapo Guzman's escape further undermines the already wounded credibility of Enrique Peña Nieto and his security apparatus. But more than that, it underlines the futility of the war on drugs and its reliance on taking out "kingpins" while never questioning the flawed prohibition policies that drive the whole bloody mess.
