Things not what they seem

I had always regarded Mex 57-D as being sort of exempt from criminal roadblocks but after a pair of ICE agents seemed to have been ambushed for their car and not because they were law enforcement types (this happened near San Luis Potosi), this really has disturbed me.

Oh, I don't believe they were were shot at by carjackers. I suspect they were involved in something undercover, and a leak either in the US or the Mexican government tipped off the hitmen. Don't assume the fault is with the Mexicans and never assume things are what they appear to be in the multi-billion dollar business that is both the narco trade AND the "war on drugs". The survivor said they told the attackers they were diplomats, while they have been clearly identified as ICE agents. ICE agents aren't diplomats, so what's with the ruse?

But the part that gets me is they were driving an armored vehicle but the guy rolled down the window to talk with gunmen carrying AK-47's? I'm pretty sure that is NOT S-O-P.
