Two obvious points: (1) the article shows that there is evidence of a political agenda behind the Fast and Furious decisions, and (2) the purpose of the subpoena for documents is to obtain addition evidence. I’m not amused at the objection to collecting evidence based on the limited amount of evidence currently in hand.
At best this was an attempt to put guns in play and try to detect any patterns after a bunch of people got killed. (Really, that is as good as it can possibly get)
No matter which is true, U.S. and Mexican laws associated with the export/import of weapons were intentionally violated. A federal agency broke numerous laws and violated the functional areas that are the responsibility of the U.S. Dept of State. They violated the sovereignty of a neighboring country we are supposed to be friends with. People on both sides of the border were killed.
All this and the Administration wants us to believe this was orchestrated independently by an AUSA and a GS-14 ATF supervisor. Americans aren't that stupid.
