It is too convenient that federal forces took down the cartel in Mexico the same time all this is happening. Someone with a great deal of authority would have to approve the raid, and I suspect it was the boss that did so.
--Hank's boss mentioned that you don't kill (try to kill) a DEA agent and get away with it. The order was likely given from Washigton, and he says as much. It's not hard for them to identify (from the boots and the tatoos, etc) which cartel the cousins are from, know who the head of the cartel in Mexico is, and send in Federals (Mexican and US) to kill him (especially to appease Washington).
Additionally, he was the one that gave Gus the tour around the DEA office. So many things point towards them being partners.
--he was giving a tour to alot of affluent local businessmen, Gus among them.
