President Calderon’s war on drugs has a major win when a recent raid on an upscale apartment complex with 200 Mexican navy marines ended in the death of Arturo Beltran Leyva. Leyva was dubbed the “Boss of Bosses” in the drug world. I found this article on MSNBC and it’s definitely worth checking out.

CUERNAVACA, Mexico – Two hundred Mexican Navy marines stormed an upscale apartment complex and killed a reputed drug cartel chief in a two-hour gunbattle, one of the biggest victories yet in President Felipe Calderon’s drug war.
Arturo Beltran Leyva, the “boss of bosses,” and six members of his cartel died in the shootout Wednesday in Cuernavaca, just south of Mexico City, according to a navy statement Thursday.
The body of one cartel member was found on the ground outside the third-floor apartment, after he apparently committed suicide during the shootout.
