U.S. federal agents allegedly cut a deal with the Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed it to traffic tons of narcotics across the border, in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to documents filed in federal court.
So the government supplied protection to ensure that particular drug shipments were successful. What good is this war on nouns if they selectively enforce it? Like every other form of prohibition it has failed. It has failed so badly that cartels are figuring out how to use the war to their benefit.
The government ran guns into Mexico arming cartels, and now we discovered that we also provided them safe passage for their product back into the states. Sounds to me like some of the cartels are becoming government endorsed.

Because everyone knows you use the government to shut down your competition, and they are more than happy to oblige, securing you from punishment from your illegal crimes.
