Gunwalker aka Fast and Furious (a primer for those who haven’t been paying attention)

Pajamas Media  reports on what they are calling Ignoring the Scandal of the Century.
As William Lajeunesse writes at Fox:

~Not only did U.S. officials approve, allow and assist in the sale of more than 2,000 guns to the Sinaloa cartel — the federal government used taxpayer money to buy semi-automatic weapons, sold them to criminals and then watched as the guns disappeared.

I don’t wish to understate it: elements of the U.S. Departments of Justice, State, Homeland Security, and Treasury are responsible for supplying an arsenal to narco-terrorists waging a civil war against an American ally. Our federal government may bear responsibility for at least 200 murders committed with “walked” firearms, in what Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales describes as a “betrayal” of her country by the Obama administration.~
(bold emphasis mine – gfa)

Are there legal ramifications? Perhaps. According to Title 18, 2331 of the U.S. Code, Operation Fast and Furious may amount to international terrorism, which carries with it stiff penalties for conspiracies that result in homicide. The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act — which was originally used to prosecute the mafia — and the Arms Export Control Act (AECA) may also fit, as may assorted state and federal charges. Charges may also result from two investigations launched by Mexican authorities, and Mexico could conceivably file charges with the International Criminal Court.

This is objectively the most important political and legal story in America right now.

And the article doesn’t even mention the death of an American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jamie Zapata directly attributed to these firearms.

  1. It just gets worse and worse. If a Repub Prez had done this, LOOK OUT! MSM is studiously ignoring this for the most part, which may be an even bigger crime.

  2. @Tango Juliet – I actually saw something on the 'net the other day, suggesting this was started by previous administration.

  3. If Bush had anything to do with this, then he and his bunch needs to go down too. But I'd like to see that source that "suggested" this….. and who they are funded by…

  4. @Matt – totally agree. To be honest, I don't remember, I blew it off (not very good investigative technique, Guffaw!)I'm sure if we search the Internet we can find it.And, it's probably another Soros shill!

  5. Ya, Soros is always the #1 suspect… LoL

  6. Of course it's Bush's fault. And the fault of the earthquake in Japan, and the instability in Greece, and…and…and…Oh, wait. Which cock-up were we talking about?

  8. Project Gunrunner began under President Bush in 2005 and involves several law enforcement agencies within the DOJ, including the FBI, the DEA, the ATF, and the U.S. Marshals. Straw buyers would purchase guns illegally, and ATF would bust them before they left the parking lot.Project "Fast and Furious" was started in 2009, and is completely the product of the current administration.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
