More damaging allegations are emerging about the Obama administration's lethal gun-running operation. Michael Walsh reports:
This just might be the smoking gun we’ve been waiting for to break the festering “Fast and Furious” gun-running scandal wide open: the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives apparently ordered one of its own agents to purchase firearms with taxpayer money, and sell them directly to a Mexican drug cartel.Mr. Walsh has a couple of theories on what was really going on here, so read the rest. Bottom line:
Let that sink in: After months of pretending that “Fast and Furious” was a botched surveillance operation of illegal gun-running spearheaded by the ATF and the US attorney’s office in Phoenix, it turns out that the government itself was selling guns to the bad guys.
People were killed with Fast and Furious weapons, including at least two American agents and hundreds of Mexicans. And the taxpayers picked up the bill.Ask the liberal media about that. They're quite adept at stirring it up when the other party is in power:
So where’s the outrage?
Watergate didn’t have a body count. Gunwalker has hundreds.How does President Obama explain why federal agents sold guns to drug cartels?
Obama blamed budget problems, in part, for what some see as ATF’s incompetence. “Part of the problem is budgetary [and] … we are going to have to figure out ways to operate smarter and more efficiently in investigations without a huge expansion of resources because those resources are aren’t there.”Oh. Right. That makes a lot of sense. Bring on the special prosecutor.
