“Every one of the 2,500 police officers in this Mexican border city [Juarez] has been ordered to leave home and stay in a hotel after the killing of five officers by a local drug cartel,” the AP reports. “The gang threatened a week ago to kill one policeman a day unless Police Chief Julian Leyzaola resigns.” Hello? Eric? Mexico? Not ONCE in today’s Congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious—the ATF’s “Guns for Goons” program—did anyone mention the hundreds of Mexicans killed by the 2000+ firearms enabled by Uncle Sam’s black bag job. Nor did we hear about the tens of thousands of U.S. weapons sold to the Mexican government that’ve gone walkies (surprise surprise). Let’s try to see this in perspective . . .
While we share the Committee members’ righteous indignation at the Obama Administration’s complicity and coverup and in the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, it’s important to remember that the ATF’s “botched sting” was part of a wider conspiracy involving an alphabet soup of agencies to arm (and generally protect) one group of Mexican drug thugs against another. Or create a pro-gun control rationale in the U.S. Or both.
I have every confidence that’s what the withheld documents would show. I suspect that the DOJ would rather risk contempt of Congress than let the truth be told, especially where it concerns “Grenadewalker” and other supposed ancillary scandals. When it comes to smoking guns, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Literally. Meanwhile, disarmed Mexicans are busy learning the true meaning of cry the beloved country.
