Citing an unnamed U.S. military official, CNN reported Sunday that Obama, in a meeting Saturday with Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Adm. Michael Mullen, inquired about how the United States could help Mexican forces with intelligence and surveillance capabilities.
Mullen returned to Washington Saturday from Mexico City, where he was on a fact-finding mission about the increasingly violent and large-scale confrontations between powerful drug cartels and the Mexican army, CNN reported.
One of the latest incidents happened last week when a U.S. citizen was found to be among three decapitated bodies discovered in Tijuana.
