This seems a little strange. Latino gangs are Catholic and Al Qaeda is Islamic, so why would they work together? William S. Lind writes for "Defense and the National Interest" about just such a possible link:
If, or rather when, the U.S. gets nuked, that is how the bomb will most likely be delivered: not by missile but by some Central American gang. Why? Because those gangs have the best delivery system for anything illegal. Mara Salvatrucha [MS-13] is already waging low-level 4GW [4th Generation Warfare] in the U.S., as many a police department could attest. And gangs, by their nature, are for hire. A few million al Qaeda dollars could easily rent Mara Salvatrucha’s delivery system. Before the rise of the state, when someone wanted to go to war, they rented whatever capabilities they needed: armies, galleys, a cook in their enemy’s kitchen who could add some “special” seasoning to his prince’s dinner, whatever. The Fourth Generation motto is, “Back to the future.”Keeping Our SA Up [d-n-i.net]
