"Gunwalker" Under Fire

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Acting BATF Director Ken Melson are fighting a Congressional oversight committee that is attempting to investigate a botched plot within the Department of Justice that saw the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco (BATF) become a major supplier to narco-terrorist cartels that have been battling the Mexican government.

The plot, called Operation and Fast and Furious withing the Justice Department and also known as "Gunwalker" to the majority of Americans, saw the BATF encourage American gun shops to provide as many as 2,500 weapons to suspected "strawmen" gun buyers for the cartels.

At least 150 Mexican police and soldiers have been shot with Gunwalker weapons, a Mexican military helicopter brought down, and two American law enforcement officers have been killed with these guns as well.

Why won't the Obama Administration be transparent about their botched operation that supported narco-terrorism? That's a question I've asked in my latest article at Pajamas Media.

Update: Meanwhile, CNN continues to spread previously debunked propaganda and lies for the Administration.

Amuse yourself. Read the Pajamas article including the links, and then read the CNN article. The scale of journalist fraud they are promoting in service to the White House's gun control agenda is breathtaking.

it would be good to see some administration officials indicted for this, but with holder as AG, that is not likely. More likely will see some prosecutions of gun shop owners.

Frankly, this makes CREEP and the Watergate break-in pale by comparison.

Agreed, GC. At least Watergate didn't have a triple digit bodycount.
