Obozo's State Department Also Running Guns to Druglords

Earlier we referred to Obama's desire to generate crises.

If this story is true, that desire is for far more than fiscal discomforts.

Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons

Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.

Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot, told the Times he supported Jordan’s allegations, adding that the Zetas have reportedly bought property in the Columbus, N.M., border region to stash weapons and other contraband.

“From the intel, it appears that a company was set up in Mexico to purchase weapons through the U.S. Direct Commercial Sales Program, and that the company may have had a direct link to the Zetas.” --UPI quoted at PJMedia

Link"Military-grade" is usually code for full-auto light weapons such as the M-16A1, M-4 and Ma Deuce. It could also include grenades and rocket-launchers. (See below for more)

The U.S. Direct Commercial Sales program is run from the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls.

“They’ve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era,” Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor. --El Paso Times quotation

Strictly EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEvil Republican propaganda?


Jesús Rejón Aguilar, the number three man in the Zeta’s hierarchy, disclosed last week that the Zetas bought weapons in the United States and transported them across the Rio Grande.

There are a few gaps yet to be filled in the story, but given Holder's gun-running, this is not out of the realm of possibility.
