Round Up: ATF gunrunning to Mexico
The Department’s leadership allowed the ATF to implement this flawed strategy, fully aware of what was taking place on the ground. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona encouraged and supported every single facet of Fast and Furious. Main Justice was involved in providing support and approving various aspects of the Operation, including wiretap applications that would necessarily include painstakingly detailed descriptions of what ATF knew about the straw buyers it was monitoring.
Heh: Top Democrats: “If Citizens Couldn’t Buy Guns, We Wouldn’t Have Botched Our ‘Gunrunning’ Sting.”
Chris Cox writes a letter to the WaPo for their stupid assertion that the ATF wouldn’t have to breaking the law if gun laws were tougher.
Mexican senator says those involved should be tried. In Mexico.
Speaking of stupid assertions, another piece on how the poor, poor ATF is hamstrung in stopping real crime so it’s OK if they create some.
