U.S. to Help Mexico Limit Violence

President Obama met with Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Adm. Michael Mullen. Saturday to discuss increasing violence in Mexico, military officials told CNN.

Officials said Obama was interested in speaking with Mullen's after his visit to Mexico City to hear Mullen's opinions on how the U.S., could help Mexico limit violence, reports the Voice of America.

The U.S., military may help Mexican military and police by providing surveillance, intelligence, and training personnel in hopes to limit the possibility of violence crossing the border.

Mexican drug cartels have been locked in violence over drug-trafficking routes into the U.S., which has already lead to the death of over 1000 people including one U.S., citizen found dead late February.
