Obama’s and Holder’s gunrunning operation to Mexican thugs is the gift that keeps on giving.
From Fox News.
Three more weapons used in Operation Fast and Furious have been recovered at crime scenes in Mexico, Fox News confirms.
CBS News first reported earlier this week that the guns had been tracked down. According to Justice Department documents, all three are described as WASR-10 .762-caliber Romanian rifles and all three were traced to a gun shop in Glendale, Arizona. The exact locations where the guns were recovered, and what crimes the guns may have been used in, was not immediately clear.
The documents further state that two of the three guns were purchased by Uriel Patino, who is believed to have purchased 700 weapons with encouragement from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. The third was bought by Sean Steward, who was convicted on gun charges in 2012.
The Justice Department has acknowledged encouraging gun stores in the U.S. to sell weapons to purchasers who trafficked them to Mexican drug cartels. The Department said that the goal was to capture a major cartel leader.
In December 2010, two Fast and Furious rifles were recovered from the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder. Terry had been shot by illegal immigrants who were smuggling drugs into the United States. The program was shut down in January 2011 when the details of Terry’s death became public.
First of all the United States government has no fucking business arming south-of-the-border thugs, regardless. Secondly, we will probably never be sure of the exact number of people, especially border agents, who have been killed by Mexican criminal scumbags armed with guns provided by Eric Holder.
