Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) said he will introduce legislation to authorize the use of U.S. military capabilities to fight drug cartels in Mexico.  “They are defeating the Mexican army. These are paramilitary entities with billions and billions at their disposal” he said in an Interview with Fox News.  Waltz explained that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) would cover cyber operations, drones, intelligence assets and naval assets, not U.S. troops.
