U.S. law enforcement 'won't embed' within Mexican police
There are no plans to have American agents embedded within Mexican units

The statement was part of a flurry of reaffirmations of where the United States and Mexico stand with each other in relation to anti-drug operations in Mexico, spurred by a Washington Post report that U.S. agents would be embedded with Mexican law enforcement units.
