What is The Narco News Bulletin?

The Narco News Bulletin works to tell the truth. We call it as we see it. Yet we are conscious that it's our truth. The whole truth can only be constructed by the participation of the people. Thus, we strive to work together, to collaborate, with your truth and the truths of others, "to make a bigger truth."
We invite your comments, corrections, criticisms, news tips and participation. Narco News accepts letters from our readers. Contact us with your truth.
