Skip to comments.Attorney General in Mexico: 200 Murders Result of Operation Fast and Furious
Posted on 09/20/2011 11:37:47 AM PDT by Nachum
In a conference call this morning with Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, reporters were told the Attorney General in Mexico has confirmed at least 200 murders south of the border happened as a result of Operation Fast and Furious. Eleven crimes in the United States have been linked to Operation Fast and Furious up to this point. Issa said he expects as the investigation in the operation continues, more crimes connected to Fast and Furious will come to light and be exposed. This is not surprising, considering out of 2500 weapons the Obama Justice Department allowed to walk, and that only 600 have been recovered, the rest are lost until they show up at violent crime scenes. The damage from Operation Fast and Furious has only started to be seen. Remember, the Mexican Government and ATF agents working in Mexico were left completely in the dark about the operation.

A new report released by Issas office shows ATF agents working in Mexico were left in the dark about the details of Operation Fast and Furious. The report shows that in late 2009, ATF officials in Mexico began to see increasing amounts of guns traced to the Phoenix ATF Field Division office showing up at violent crime scenes. Former ATF Attaché to Mexico Darren Gil and ATF Acting Attaché to Mexico Carlos Canino expressed their concerns to officials in the Phoenix Field Office and in Washington D.C. but were ignored. The report shows ATF and DOJ failed to share crucial details of the of Operation Fast and Furious with either their own employees stationed in Mexico or representatives of the Government of Mexico. Specifically, personnel in Arizona denied ATF agents working in Mexico information directly related to their jobs and everyday operations.

Gunwalker: very, very lame or a cynical-to-hell plot. Either way not good.

you can’t impose socialism on an armed populous, the ends justify the means comrade
Is it possible that this is not about tracking guns but about getting guns into Mexico?
This is really beginning to look bad, as if their is money changing hands over the border.
Yer doin a heckuva job, Holdie!!! Give’m Hell, Issa!!
I still think 0bie did this with the approval of the pres of Mexico. Then Mexico could sue U.S. and get money that way. I think they still will do that. One of many reason the admin did this.
Let’s hope Issa is able to convince the Mexican government to testify as to what they knew.
Could be, could be.
It would fit in with everything else he's been doing to bankrupt our country.
This is certainly proving to be the most corrupt administration we’ve ever had. This stuff makes Watergate look like child’s play. Even with all the stiffs stinking up Clinton’s criminal playground, there was never this kind of carnage.
I can’t wait for the expose movies, but I bet I will have to.
You know this plays into the “guns kill people” attitude, versus the “people kill people”, right? It’s as if you’re saying the criminals would not have just picked up a different weapon to commit the murder. Which leads to the next logical step that we should ban future gun sales.
I’d be careful with this one - the issue is not that people died (which is horrible) it’s that they let the guns go so far that they were out of their control.
Obama lied; hundreds died.
SOB should be impeached.
To be honest, I think the Mexican criminals would have gotten the guns somewhere else but I still like the idea of blaming the libs who always blamed the guns for crime not the criminals.
An illegal act which results in death, where the fact that deaths would result as a consequence of the act would be evident to a reasonable man, has the potential to send a LOT of people to prison.
OK so....the first black Prez is the first Prez to murder over 200 Mexicans in peace time, right?
Wow, that sounds super bad.
It’s almost like a US gov’t official could get EXTRADITED, you know?
Gosh, with what we know about the street reality of L.A. etc, I suuuuure would not want to be a black guy in a Mexican prison, you know?
I wonder what they might do to ya every night.
