"When convoys of soldiers or federal police move through the scrubland of northern Mexico, the Zetas drug cartel knows they are coming. The alert goes out from a taxi driver or a street vendor, equipped with a high-end handheld radio and paid to work as a lookout known as a 'halcon,' or hawk. The radio signal travels deep into the arid countryside, hours by foot from the nearest road." (12/26/11)
