U.S. Officials Behind 'Fast and Furious' Gun Sales Should Be Tried in Mexico, Lawmaker Says
While the investigation continues into the U.S. operation that helped send thousands of guns south of the border, Mexican lawmakers say they'll press for extradition and prosecution in Mexico of American officials who authorized and ran the operation.
What a sight to see Obama's AG Holder on trial in Mexico!
Obama-Holder Team Sent Illegal Guns To Mexican Terrorist Gangs Who Then Killed an American Border Agent With Them
House Panel Slams 'Fast and Furious' Gun Operation Tied to Border Agent's Death
Note that this inquiry didn't occur when Pelosi was in-charge!
“A U.S. law enforcement operation intended to crack down on major weapons traffickers on the Southwest border spiraled out of control as federal agents were told by superiors to "stand down" and ignore weapons bought in Arizona headed for Mexico, a House panel heard Wednesday.”
“Three federal firearms investigators told the House Oversight and Government Reform committee that they wanted to "intervene and interdict" loads of guns, but were repeatedly ordered to step aside.”
"Allowing loads of weapons that we knew to be destined for criminals -- this was the plan," John Dodson, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent who testified to the panel. "It was so mandated."
He added: "My supervisors directed me and my colleagues not to make any stop or arrest, but rather, to keep the straw purchaser under surveillance while allowing the guns to walk."
While these illegal weapons were being sent to Mexican Gangs, Obama and Hillary were holding news conferences telling the American people that it was weak gun laws that were to blame. Where are NY Mayor Blumberg’s roaming illegal gun sting teams, and why weren’t they arresting the Federal ATF Agents that were committing these crimes?
And most interesting of all: why aren’t the Roanoke Times and the rest of the liberal media covering this story? Aren’t they always right out front with big stories on gun law and gun use abuse? Talk about your sound of silence and political slant and bias!
