What are they talking about?

Is the DEA trying to make us think that Muslim terrorists are funding themselves by smuggling drugs into the US? What does this story mean?
Hezbollah is using the same southern narcotics routes that Mexican drug kingpins do to smuggle drugs and people into the United States, reaping money to finance its operations and threatening U.S. national security, current and former U.S. law enforcement, defense and counterterrorism officials say.

The Iran-backed Lebanese group has long been involved in narcotics and human trafficking in South America's tri-border region of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. Increasingly, however, it is relying on Mexican narcotics syndicates that control access to transit routes into the U.S.

Hezbollah relies on "the same criminal weapons smugglers, document traffickers and transportation experts as the drug cartels," said Michael Braun, who just retired as assistant administrator and chief of operations at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

"They work together," said Mr. Braun. "They rely on the same shadow facilitators. One way or another, they are all connected.
I'm pretty sure it has no meaning at all "One way or another, they are all connected".

One way or antoehr, we're all connected to Kevin Bacon.

Read the whole thing, it's just nonsense written so that it soulnds like it says something.
