Gunwalker: Survellience Stopped At Border
Federal law enforcement's cover story for Operation Fast and Furious, "track" guns back to Mexican drug cartels, just came apart like a cardboard suitcase in the rain: Surviellence of the gun runners stopped at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Oh, this is ugly. The only remaining explaning for this goofball endeavor is that: A) ATFE was attempting to undermine the government of Mexico, B) ATFE was attempting to aggravate drug violence in order to further their politicial goal of reinstating the "assault weapon" ban of 1994, C) Both A & B are correct.
It's about the manipulation, then it's about the bling, bling.

Say it aint so!!! One of the highest law enforcement entities in the land wasn't pursuing the greater good? Again?

Time to disband the BATFE. Let the FBI take over the inverstigations that BATFE currently supervise. The BATFE has a long history of mismanagement and corruption and the American people deserve better from their government, but will only get it if they demand it.

I really wonder what will come of this.
Will any arrests be made?
Will anybody in the ATF resign their post?
Will anybody even admit to the motivation behind this program?
When Schumer and Feinstein spew soundbites about Mexican cartels battling it out with American guns, and use this to push for more control, will anybody ask how many of those guns were provided by the ATF?
Or will all be business as usual in Washington?

we all knew Obama was a gun grabber before he got elected. look at where he came from and what he supported before becoming president. now he just has to operate under the table so he can get re-elected and take away all guns.
obama is directly responsible for this and knew about it. so when does the impeachment hearing start?

Let me get this straight. The BATFE was going to "trace" all those guns, and bust the cartels.
They haven't been able to take down the cartels after they've committed 30,000 murders / year. They haven't been able to take down the cartels after they've smuggled millions of pounds of drugs into this country. But they're going to be able to take them down for gun smuggling? In a foreign country when they don't have any authority to go there in the first place, without getting permission from the government, that's in the pockets of the cartels?
Nice plan, daisy.
Anybody who believes that was truly the plan from on-high is on drugs. Probably Mexican drugs.
The plan was to create a situation they could point to and use to strip us of our rights.
