Obozo and Eric's Gun-Running Adventure, Part 45,000

The pre-processed Milorganite substrate just keeps getting deeper.

The failed federal anti-gunrunning program known as Operation Fast and Furious got so out of control in November 2009, it appeared the U.S. government was single-handedly "arming for war" the Sinaloa Cartel, documents show, even as U.S. officials kept lying to fellow agents in Mexico about the volume of guns it helped send south of the border.

That would be the cartel which DEA winked-and-nodded at so the cartel could run cocaine into the country.


Well, sure, BATF "lost" the guns. Agents were told to let them walk with the straw-buyers. But certainly we kept track of the money, right?

WRONG, Bible-thumping stooooooooooopid right-wing TEA Party extremist!

William Newell, who was formerly in charge of the Phoenix office, insisted that guns don't walk despite the facts clearly showing they did, he knew it and approved it time and time again.

Newell said the purpose of the operation was to dismantle the entire Mexican cartel but agents testified they were not allowed to do that when they saw transfers of money and weren't permitted to follow the money

See, you didn't go to Hahvahd, or any of those innerlecshul places like that, so you just do NOT understand!

The precise number of casualties in Mexico isn't known, but ATF officials confirm the murder of Mario Gonzales Rodriguez, brother of the Chihuahua attorney general, with a Fast and Furious gun.

According to the report, the U.S. knew for eight months of the link between the ATF operation and his death, but refused to tell any Mexican officials

The objective, stupid, was to undermine the government of Mexico while at the same time demolishing the United States economy.
