Another ‘Fast and Furious’ Gun Turns Up at Mexico Shootout Scene … “Weapons from the Operation would Likely continue to turn up at Crime Scenes”

Remember this Barack Obama – Eric Holder scandal …

As Yogi Berra used to say,”It looks like it is deja vu all over again.”  Another gun from the failed Obama/Holder ‘Fast & Furious’ gun-walking fiasco has turned up at a shootout between Mexican authorities and a Mexican drug cartel gunman. According to accounts, at least one AK-47 found at the scene could be tracked back to ‘Fast & Furious’. Isn’t this special, the ATF has acknowledged that more guns from this poorly conceived plan could continue to turn up at future crime scenes. Guns from this disastrous operation will be turning up for years to come, yet no one in the administration has yet been held accountable.

A gun from the failed U.S. operation known as “Fast and Furious” turned up at the scene of a shootout between Mexican authorities and alleged cartel gunmen last month, according to CNN.

U.S. officials told CNN at least one AK-47-style gun that could be traced back to the failed gun-walking scheme was found at the scene.

The ATF acknowledged that weapons from the operation would likely continue to turn up at crime scenes.

“ATF has accepted responsibility for the mistakes made in the Fast and Furious investigation and at the attorney general’s direction we have taken appropriate and decisive action to ensure that these errors will not be repeated,” the bureau said in a statement to CNN.

“And we acknowledge that, regrettably, firearms related to the Fast and Furious investigation will likely continue to be recovered at future crime scenes,” it added.

UNBELIEVABLE: President Barack Obama Blames Gun Violence In Mexico On US

More from the worst American President in modern times … He truly is an “Abomination”.

Today Barack Hussein Obama blames the gun violence in Mexico on the United States, while in Mexico pandering to the Mexicans. UNREAL. Obama stated, “Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States.” Gee Mr. President go you mean like your programs like “Fast & Furious”? After all Mr. President, who was it that was running guns to Mexican drug cartels that resulted in the death of American border guards and the deaths of many innocent Mexicans? Oh that’s right, it was you and Eric Holder.

When will this president stop apologizing for America and blaming it for all of the evils of the world? At some point one has to wonder whether Obama even likes America. At the UK Telegraph they ask, Will Barack Obama ever stop apologizing for America? Because the violence in Mexico could have nothing to do with the drug cartels and a corrupt government, right?

Barack Obama, the Apologist in Chief

Is there no end to the apologies that President Obama has made for his own country? Instead of blaming America, Obama should have called on the Mexican government to do far more to deal with the drug gangs and the rampant lawlessness, which is spilling over the border into the United States. Why not praise the courageous work of US law enforcement agents fighting bravely against Mexican drug cartels?

Watch the VIDEO at RCP.

“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”

“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.

Unreal … Two Border Patrol Agents Convicted Friday in Federal Court in Tucson, AZ of Violating the Civil Rights of 4 Mexican Drug Smugglers

ARE YOU KIDDING ME … WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICA I GRE UP IN?

As reported at the Arizona Daily Star, two border agents were convicted on Friday by a jury in Federal court in Tucson, AZ of violating the civil rights of four drug smugglers. Yes, you heard that correct. Let me repeat this, two border agents were convicted of violating the civil rights of four Mexican drug smugglers. WTF is going on in this country!!! Seriously, the US government fails to protect the borders from illegal immigrants and drug smugglers from entering into our country, but we prosecute the very agents who do? We are not allowed to call these people illegals, but we allow Mexican drug smugglers to have civil rights. Not only are they in the United States illegally, they are in it with illegal drugs with the intention of selling such illegal substances. But they got civil rights. Unreal.

25 year old Dario Castillo and 31 year old Ramon Zuniga were convicted on four counts of “civil-rights deprivation under color of law”.  Here is a rather interesting part od the case and prosecution, even though there were more agents at the scene, only Zuniga and Castillo committed the civil-rights violations. Hmm? Does anyone else just find this all a bit whacked, seeing that we have a federal policy of not going after illegals and a push to not even call them illegals? So what would these folks have been considered … undocumented, not legal substance carrying, lost in the desert individuals?

After deliberating most of the morning, about 3 p.m. the jury convicted Dario Castillo, 25, and Ramon Zuniga, 31, of four counts of civil-rights deprivation under color of law. Rather than arrest four Mexican smugglers intercepted the night of Nov. 12, 2008, the agents made them strip off their socks, shoes and jackets, forced some of them to eat marijuana and ordered them to flee into the desert.

The convictions are misdemeanors for Zuniga, but felonies for Castillo because the jury found he set fire to the smugglers’ belongings.

The agents were found not guilty of a conspiracy charge.

Castillo was also found not guilty of tampering with a witness, the most serious charge.

A felony conviction for deprivation of rights under color of law carries a maximum penalty of 10 years and/or a $250,000 fine; a misdemeanor conviction under the statute carries a penalty of one year and/or a $100,000 fine.

U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo said in a written statement,”This verdict sends a clear message that abuse of authority by federal law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in our society.” Really, I take it in another way. No one believes in civil rights for Americans more than I; however, I in no way believe they should be afforded to people in my country illegally and committing crimes. Who finds this a bit offensive when we have a U.S. government, Republican, Democrat & Independent alike, who every day try to strip away out US Constitutional and Civil rights, yet Mexican drug smugglers are protected? Our government is trying to strip away our Second Amendment right to bare arms, yet these people have a right to be in our country illegally with illegal drugs and have civil rights. What has happened to the America I grew up in?

Zeta Drug Cartel’s Salvador Alfonso “Commander Squirrel” Martinez Escobedo, Suspect Arrested in the Falcon Lake Murder of David Hartley

Has the death of David Hartley finally been solved? David Hartley was reported murdered on September 30, 2010 when he and his wife, Tiffany Hartley, were jet skiing on Falcon Lake between the US and Mexican border. It is believed that they wondered into the middle of a drug trade. Tiffany escaped; however, David was reportedly shot and killed. His body has never been recovered.

Monday, Mexican authorities said they had arrested a leader of the ruthless Zetas drug cartel and linked him to the Falcon Lake killing. The arrest of Zeta drug cartel’s Salvador Alfonso “The Squirrel” Martinez Escobedo was arrested and is being called a suspect in the murder of David Hartley. The Squirrel is responsible or has had a hand in numerous murders. Mexican authorities also suspect Martinez is behind the 2010 slaying of 72 migrants in Tamaulipas.

Authorities accuse Martinez, known as “The Squirrel,” of being a regional leader of the Zetas in three northern Mexican states and heading up a brutal battle with the rival Gulf cartel. They had offered a reward of more than $1 million for information leading to his capture.

He was picked up in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo on Saturday night and presented to the media on Monday. But one Texas sheriff says the 31-year-old alleged cartel leader wasn’t on a list of five suspect names in the Hartley case that he’s handed over to the FBI.

“Based on the information I have, he may have been the one responsible for that area, but not the one responsible for the actual killing,” said Sigifredo Gonzalez, sheriff of Zapata County, Texas.

But is Salvador Alfonso Martinez Escobedo responsible for David Hartley’s death? It is not quite sure how “Commander Squirrel” is connected to the murder of Hartley.

He was picked up in the Mexican border city of Nuevo Laredo on Saturday night and presented to the media on Monday. But one Texas sheriff says the 31-year-old alleged cartel leader wasn’t on a list of five suspect names in the Hartley case that he’s handed over to the FBI.

“Based on the information I have, he may have been the one responsible for that area, but not the one responsible for the actual killing,” said Sigifredo Gonzalez, sheriff of Zapata County, Texas.

More from ABC News on the Mexican authority statement:

“Squirrel is credited with being the mastermind of the deaths of 72 undocumented migrants in San Fernando,” said the statement. “[He] is the alleged perpetrator of the narco graves found in Tamaulipas state, with more than 200 bodies and the execution of more than 50 people by his own hand in different parts of the republic, [as well as] the murder of David Hartley, an American citizen killed at Falcon Dam on September 30, 2010.”

The statement also alleged that the Squirrel was responsible for the murder of the police official investigating Hartley’s death.

One US Border Agent Shot Dead, Second Injured in Shooting Near Naco, AZ at Brian Terry Station, A Known Drug Corridor

BREAKING … As reported at Fox News, two US Border agents have been shot near Naco, AZ, a known drug smuggling corridor. One US Border agent has been killed, the other injured. The names of the Border Patrol agents have not been released. The shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, AZ, which is just south of Tucson.

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot, one fatally, Tuesday morning in an area south Arizona known as a major drug-smuggling corridor, authorities said.

The identities of the agents were not immediately released, but the shooting occurred at the Brian Terry Station near Naco, Ariz., which is just south of Tucson. The station was named after an agent who was killed in the line of duty in December 2010.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the slain border patrols family, friends and loved ones.

Just a couple of days after Univision released a video and showed a connection between the Fast & Furious gun walking program and the deaths and massacre of Mexican teens at the hands of drug cartels, we have this.

UPDATE I: The injured agent has been airlifted to the hospital,” Crystal Amarillas, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Border Patrol in Tuscon, said in a statement to KVOA.com.
