"I just canít imagine anyone dumb enough to think you could keep this a secret."

Patrick Richardson, one of my partners at Pajamas Media working on the Gunwalker scandal, has an excellent interview posted with Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC). The Congressman seems to think... well, why don't you just go read the article directly, and see for yourself.

At this point, I don't think it a bold move at all to predict that the crimes committed by the government under the color of law in Gunwalker, and the ensuing (and on-going) coverup) will take down the Obama Administration from the inside in coming months. Months, not years.

More whistleblowers are coming forward out of enlightened self-interest ( the secure, encrypted email account gunwalkertips@hushmail.comexists for this very reason) and out of patriotism to share what they know of the operation, and it seems very likely that Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and the White House are neck-deep in either the original crime, and/or the cover-up.

With a few notable exceptions, the national media is avoiding covering this story as much as possible, but with more Congresspersons and Senators speaking out, and the exposure of other possible gun-walking operations approaching critical mass, even the most recalcitrant media outlets can't avoid covering the story forever.

Elements of the Obama Administration participated in a scheme that ensured the arming of the violent Sinaloa drug cartel with 2,020 firearms, and as a result, hundreds of Mexican nationals and at least three U.S. federal agents were shot, two fatally.

They are accessories to murder, and they will be held to account for their felonies.

You will never lose money betting on finding someone dumb enough.

I don't know that it matters much, but I think this charcterization is misleading. "Government" cannot commit crimes. The people in government make choices to do forbidden things or fail to do required things. They are then personally responsible under the law. To say that the government broke the law is to provide a shield of anonymity to the actual criminals. More correctly, one should say that agents and officials of the government broke laws.

It is the crime. The gunwalker conspiracy is the biggest scandal ever in our 200+ year history. Its even bigger than Waco & RUby Ridge.
