Finally someone has come out and said it
Operation Fast and Furious was not botched. It was planned. And of course they just couldn't do the small fry.
See the administration made the claim that the bad people from south of the border were buying their guns at Gun shops, Gun shows and from other private sales and that the 2A was to blame. However, some one went back and ran the numbers and Whoopsie!! turns out almost all the guns came from Mexican Police and Military sources.
Well that simply won't do.
So what to do get more guns into from US FFL's into the hands of Mexican cartels? Why ship them directly from the FFL's using the ATF (with Porkulous Money) and eliminating the middle men of the Mexican Police and Army.
So quit calling this thing botched. It wasn't. No one can point to anywhere in the plan to seizure or capture the guns nor arrest or kill the bad guys with the guns. The ATF higher up painstakingly did things to ensure that the guns slipped from ATF control/observation and disappeared, mostly into Mexico, only to sadly turn up at more and more murder scenes.
Yes, murder scenes. And like every freedom loving American, I don't care who is being murdered. I want the person that pulled the trigger either fried or put in a jail he never comes out of. And those that knew of, participated in and allowed this to happen, need to be tried for those murders.
Go back and read what ATF Agent Newell said about working cases where gun dealers "allowed" guns to walk. It was Agent Newell that ordered the dealers to sell those guns against the dealers will and better judgement and Agent Newell let them walk.
No one was killed in Watergate. Agent Newell has the blood of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican and a growing number of Americans on his hands. For this and this alone he needs to brought up on charges. Then and only then will the entire rotten edifice of Fast and Furious will come tumbling down. Yes, Monica, we are to the point of a Special Prosecutor.
