Barack Obama’s Attorney General Let Top Fast and Furious Suspect Go … Its time for Eric Holder to go!
Yet more disastrous news coming out from the ill fated ‘Fast and Furious’ gun running scandal. US Federal agents actually detained the top suspect and main target in the gun running program, then let him go. After being caught, Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta pledged to cooperate and keep in touch with investigators. However, he slipped back into Mexico and was never heard from again. Go figure. Imagine what would have happened if ATF agents had actually arrested t Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta?
Federal agents stopped the main target of the ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious in May 2010. After they questioned him, he disappeared back into Mexico, and the program went on to spiral out of control.
Seven months after federal agents began the ill-fated Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation, they stumbled upon their main suspect in a remote Arizona outpost on the Mexican border, driving an old BMW with 74 rounds of ammunition and nine cellphones hidden inside.
Detained for questioning that day in May 2010, Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta described to agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives his close association with a top Mexican drug cartel member, according to documents obtained this weekend by the Times/Tribune Washington Bureau.
The top Fast and Furious investigator, Special Agent Hope MacAllister, scribbled her phone number on a $10 bill after he pledged to cooperate and keep in touch with investigators.
Then Celis-Acosta disappeared into Mexico. He never called.
More from PJ Media. Is it really believable that a top target in the ‘Fast and Furious’ program could have been detained and then released to trade up for a bigger fish and Attorney General Eric Holder never knew anything about it? Really? Who said that Obama had no scandals in his Administrations? This one is a biggy and many are doing their best to cover it up. Makes many wonder how it took so long for this story to come out.
