Drip, Drip, Drip …
The saga continues of the ‘Fast and Furious’ program that Barack Obama’s Attorney General claims he knew nothing about. More High-powered assault weapons purchased as a result if the ATF’s ‘Fast and Furious’ program have found their way into the hands of Mexican drug cartel members. This time Mexican authorities seized 24 AK-47 rifles, two rifles, Barrett 50-caliber antiaircraft machine gun Browning caliber 30 caliber rifle sniper 308 for a 40 mm caliber grenade launcher and three 308 mm caliber guns. Just another case of a Mexican drug cartel hit man hoarding Fast and Furious weapons … so why hasn’t there been a special prosecutor appointed yet to investigate this scandal?
Reporting from Washington— High-powered assault weapons illegally purchased under the ATF’s Fast and Furious program in Phoenix ended up in a home belonging to the purported top Sinaloa cartel enforcer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, whose organization was terrorizing that city with the worst violence in the Mexican drug wars.
In all, 100 assault weapons acquired under Fast and Furious were transported 350 miles from Phoenix to El Paso, making that West Texas city a central hub for gun traffickers. Forty of the weapons made it across the border and into the arsenal of Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo, a feared cartel leader in Ciudad Juarez, according to federal court records and trace documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Many have questioned AG Eric Holder on when and how much he knew about the Fast and Furious scandal. Arizona Sheriffs have demanded an investigation and asked for Holder to resign. However, Holder continues to deny knowledge of the Fast and Furious program and stands by his statements, even though emails state something quite to the contrary. President Barack Obama might want to backtrack on his full support of Eric Holder … yet another reason why not to vote for Obama in 2012.
Can you imagine if a Republican was in office when ‘Fast and Furious’ occurred, the MSM would be billing it as Watergate II.
