'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Right about Obama, Kerry

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., is correct when he says in his column “Exclusive to the Trib: President Obama's weak policies have emboldened al-Qaida” (Aug. 11 and TribLIVE.com) that “Obama's perception of the threats facing us is dangerously flawed.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin puts his thumb in America's eye by granting Edward Snowden asylum, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spit in America's eye again by authorizing more than 1,000 new housing units in settlements in Palestinian territory three days before long-sought-after peace talks were to begin.

The Whispers column “Diplomacy's environmental downside” (Aug. 4 and TribLIVE.com) was also right. Secretary of State John Kerry should have known better and saved the planet tons of global-warming pollutants from his constant flying around, trying to arrange peace talks he should have known would be inevitably torpedoed by Netanyahu.
