Valin Posted July 26, 2014 Share Posted July 26, 2014 The Truth About Guns: Robert Farago July 21, 2014 The Congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious has gone cold. This despite the fact that “on Thursday, June 28, 2012, [Attorney General Eric] Holder became the first sitting member of the Cabinet of the United States to be held in criminal contempt of Congress by the House of Representatives for refusing to disclose internal Justice Department documents in response to a subpoena.” Wikipedia’s entry for “ATF gunwalking scandal” tells the sad tale of the Obama administration’s coverup of the ATF’s extra-legal anti-gun-running gun-running program, that armed the Mexican rip crew who gunned down US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. That coverup continues. The reason for F&F remains shrouded in mystery. But TTAG’s original theory seems increasingly likely with news that . . . the U.S. State Department traded U.S. Visas for Sinaloa drug cartel members in exchange for information about their rivals. This squares with the real reason behind Fast & Furious: to support the Sinaloa drug cartel over Los Zetas, to weaken the Zetas. Hence the ATF let American gun store guns walk across the border to Sinaloa cartel members. Hence the DEA letting tens of millions of dollars in Sinaloa cash motor across the border (as reported by the New York Times and TTAG). Hence God knows what. Note: this does not mean that the alternative alternative theory is wrong. That Uncle Sam wanted to encourage/enable/create an “iron river” of U.S. gun store gun to Mexico to justify a ban on “assault rifles” in the U.S. Indeed, we’re still left with the legacy of that maneuver: the ATF’s border state long gun registry. But I reckon we’re looking at one of those Murder on the Orient Express multiple motivation deals. You did notice the words “State Department” above, yes? Guess who was the head of the U.S. State Department at the time of this “visas for drug thugs” program.......(Snip) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
