The Congressional Investigation into Operation Fast & Furious was a damp squib. Despite incontrovertible evidence that the feds channeled firearms to the Sinaloa drug cartel, despite the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry at the hands of a “rip crew” enabled by the ATF, despite Attorney General Eric Holder’s Contempt of Congress citation, those responsible for F&F walked scot-free. The upcoming movie Sicario . . .
isn’t based on Fast and Furious, but it “reveals” U.S. government complicity with the Mexican drug cartels. It won’t change U.S. policy, but the action thriller will highlight the desperate situation south of the border and open some eyes to American hypocrisy and perfidy. Mightn’t it?
