Posted on 10/06/2011 11:09:45 PM PDT by Watchdog85
Nothing there about gunwalking is there? Nor is there any mention of Fast and Furious, which had yet to be launched as part of the surge described. But that is the point, say my sources. Policy is strategy enunciated. Tactics flow from strategy. The policy that got the Obama administration into trouble was the surge and the desire, in the words of Napolitano, for "more prosecution of actual arms dealers who are intentionally and knowingly putting arms into the hands of the smugglers."
This fit with the Obamanoids preconceived notion -- promoted by the Brady Campaign, the Mexican Government and other entities -- that the violence in Mexico was a direct result of the access in the United States to civilian market firearms. As we will see in "In at the beginning," Part 2, it was this obsession, translated into policy, that laid the predicate for the Gunwalker Scandal. And the State Department was a full participant in the policy that led to gunwalking, for they were "in at the beginning."

This program was part of a conspiracy to take away second amendment rights. There was so much crap coming out of combined mouths in the early part of this administration, including Homeland security and State blaming the US gun laws for allowing guns to end uo in the hands of Mexican gangs. We are going to find out one way or another just how far the rabbit hole goes. Whata government, eh?
It would see, everyone KNOWS where the rabbit hole goes. It appears only a handful of us care...
I'm seeing hints that DOJ, State, CIA, and DOD all have differing interests in Fast and Furious, but see it as a common vehicle to achieve their ends.
DOJ wants to further cripple the Second Amendment. State wants to prop up the "official" Mexican government against the drug cartels. CIA sees this as a source of "sterile" weapons that can be deployed anywhere, and blamed as "another one of those Gunwalker weapons". DOD is concerned with the even hotter drug war in southern Mexico, with the danger that the Zetas will work as mercenaries for Cuba and Venezuela.
We don't even have evidence that this "walking" has stopped. For all we're allowed to know, the federal government is still using sanctioned strawman sales to buy more weapons with our tax dollars, and then "spread the wealth" among various "stakeholders".
Perhaps this is how 0bama's equipping his "civil security force" that is supposed to be "as well equipped as the American military". Well, this would at least provide plenty of small arms, with no paper trail. All traces of criminality are just scrubbed off the books, or die in tragic "accidents".
This along with all thier other antics are well planned and in the wings. This is no accident or a flub this is planned. Small fires lit in many parts of the sytem and the country will come into play in the near future, I believe. The 2012 election is the end of thier riegn and they know it, they will pull out all the stops.
And who’s to say that the administration hasn’t made a deal with the Mexican drug cartel to attack when the time is right?
And they never did say where their recruiting stations are, did they?
I think it's a great idea and have wanted to sign up from the git go. But, alas, their lack of transparency remains a stumbling block to me driving a tank.
hillary is in this up to her kankles...
