A Mexican military helicopter landed Saturday afternoon at Laredo International Airport by mistake, said a spokeswoman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection

So the authorites would have us believe that the copter pilot was so incompetent that he cannot read maps, navigation gear, or his own eyes for that matter (dead reckoning), yet he can fly a helo....
Sorry, but I'm not buying it. A convoy getting stuck in a single directional lane of travel and having to cross is pluasible. The helo..not so much.

Conditioning is more likely, or some transfer of persons, info between US, mexico, or even private interests.

Mucia Dovalina, the uniform public affairs officer for the Laredo Port of Entry, said the helicopter landed about 3 p.m., but she couldn’t share details such as the number of occupants or whether they were armed.

Why not?

Testing, Testing Testing? It is happening way too many times.
I wish some one would/could tell me what the Love Affair with Mexico is all about.

Most of Laredo's population is Mexican:

Yeah why not? Everybody has the right to know what happened during the copter processing but why hide or not sharing any details or what just happened before allowing the copter to fly back to Mexico
