RWBNews.com/TheExaminer ^ | 2/25/11 | Anthony G Martin

Posted on 02/25/2011 2:00:55 PM PST by GracieB

RWBNews: Alleged cover-ups, stonewalling and lawlessness are possibly being perpetrated at high levels of the Obama DOJ by AG Holder to ATF higher-ups in order to manipulate statistics and further progressive agendas of gun-control, border security and immigration. New information has surfaced indicating more corruption at the DOJ’s ATF. Gun smuggling into Mexico to ‘pad’ statistics to ‘prove’ U.S. guns arm Mexican drug cartels. ALSO..ATF agents bribed a gun dealer into helping shady characters in making ‘straw purchases’ to ‘prove’ U.S. gun stores are breaking the law! If the allegations prove to be true, the American people are being lied to by the highest levels of this Administration.

Reported By Anthony G. Martin of the Examiner A brewing scandal at the Department of Justice involving an illegal scheme to pad statistics on U.S. guns in Mexico threatens to erupt as U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of the Senate Judiciary Committee begins an investigation. ATF agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives–a DOJ agency–allegedly smuggled U.S. guns into Mexico in order to bolster the Department’s disputed contention that Mexican drug cartels are armed primarily with U.S. guns. Whistleblowers within the ATF contend that one of the these guns was used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian A. Terry in December of 2010. News of the murder and the underlying scandal that prompted it was first reported on December 28, 2010.

If the allegations prove to be true, the American people are being lied to by the highest levels of this Administration.

And if these allegations prove to be true, they will be added to the existing list of this administration’s offenses and ignored by the majority of the American people.

that is likely true. I have only been “engaged” within the last 2 years when I saw socialism coming down the track with the bright lights on.

This is the smoking gun if it can be proven, pun intended.

That makes the ATF complicit in his murder.

I would not be surprised if the ATF were not more than complicit. It is entirely possible and not unlikely that the murder was done by them and the "evidence" purposely left behind.

The CBS story made it sound like they were using a paid confidential informant to sell the guns. That is pretty standard for a controlled delivery operation. Where they went wrong was that the managers at ATF ordered that the gun traffickers be allowed to successfully smuggle their guns out of the U.S.

The concept of a controlled delivery is pretty dangerous when you are talking guns. The idea of purposely letting the item go beyond your control is insane.

The fact that CBS has already gone with the story means that the White House has lost control of the story.

The transition of the story is going to provide an interesting corruption angle to what was an incompetent operation. First they arrested one of the smugglers a couple days after the shooting. Then the first press release made it sound like ATF had uncovered a trafficking ring that included criminal activity by the gun dealers. Next, a whole lot of silence followed by a pull back from a suggested change in gun laws on the border states. Then, kaboom.

Do you suppose they obtained a specimen round from the weapons before releasing them to the traffickers?

Would this be normal practice in this sort of operation?

No, the weapons used to shoot the BP agent were recovered at the scene. They are tracking the weapons by serial number. I bet there is no way to know how many other people (Americans and Mexicans) are getting shot with the weapons released to criminals by BATFE.

BATFE should be a convenience store and not a law enforcement agency. The quality of their personnel is below that of of domestic Muslim terrorists.

"If this President should last for more than 4 years, see your psychiatrist!"

First find an electable candidate who is not a RINO to run against him.

Jimmy Carter would have been reelected in 1980 had it not been for Ronald Reagan.
