Who Is Escaped Mexican Drug Lord 'El Chapo?'

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped prison for the second time Saturday night using advanced underground tunnels built underneath the prison— but who is this criminal mastermind? The barely literate drug lord oversaw the explosion of subterranean networks used to smuggle massive amounts of narcotics across the U.S. border. The son of a poor farmer, Guzman was born in Sinaloa and entered the local drug economy in the 1970s after dropping out of school. He rose gradually within the Sinaloa cartel, and in the early 1990s took control. In 1993, Guzman was arrested in Guatemala, and extradited to Mexico, where he was put in a maximum security prison. He continued to run the organization behind bars while maintaining a comfortable lifestyle, surrounded by associates and paid-off guards. In January 2001, some of them helped him slip out of the prison while hidden in a laundry cart. Get More at NBC News

Gov. Haley: Roof's Background Check Failure an 'FBI Issue'

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called out the FBI Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" for allowing the man accused of shooting nine people at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston to purchase a gun. In her first on-camera comments about the situation since the FBI admitted the errors Friday, Haley said the agency told officials in her state that it was a federal mistake. "When the FBI called us, we were told that it was an FBI issue, that it was not a state issue," she said. "When someone has a charge filed against them, it should go into a database, and it should be shown immediately to anyone's that looking at it," Haley also commented. FBI officials said last week that the accused shooter should have been prevented from buying a firearm because he acknowledged drug possession in a previous arrest. Read »
