FULL TITLE: Flashback: Obama Blames US Guns For Mexican Violence, Then Starts Running Guns to Mexico 5 Months Later
In April 2009 Barack Obama traveled to Mexico and blamed US gun sellers for This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States...more than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well.
Just to be sure, a few months later the Obama Administration started running their own guns to Mexico.
Also today..Mexican Attorney General told reporters that Obama is more involved with Operation Fast and Furious than he is admitting. The Cypress Times reported:

Was the provenance of THIS one of AG Holder's DOJ/DNC/Obama-supplied grenades?
Besides being a criminal operation that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican and American citizens, Fast and Furious was a political crime far, far exceeding Watergate.
Watergate simply tried to eavesdrop on political opponents.
Fast & Furious tried to stage crimes to advance political agendas.
He knows all about Fast and Furious. I am not so sure he didn’t discuss this with the pres of Mexico with his blessings.
Glad you posted this. I was wondering the same thing. One of Fast and Furious grenades?
Someone needs to put a youtube ad together with 0bama stating these things, stating “we’re working on gun control under the radar” to Sarah Brady, then detailing “fast and furious”.
Seems to me if this grenade came from F&F that this woman would have one hell of a lawsuit against the USA. Well, so would a lot of other Mexicans affected by this.

soetoro said he was, ¨working under the radar¨ for greater gun control. Now we know what he meant.
What are the chances this does not go all the way up to the Oval Office? I think this just may be the ticket for Holder and Barry to go straight to Leavenworth prison where they both belong.

AND THE SCARIEST:
California Iraqi-Mexican crime ring busted, police say
“Police in southern California have arrested 60 people and broken up an Iraqi criminal ring accused of selling drugs, machine guns and improvised bombs out of an immigrant social club, authorities said on Thursday.
The swoop by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and local police targeted a network operating out of El Cajon, which is near San Diego and close to the border with Mexico.”

News Troops kill 3 gunmen in northern Mexico, seize weapons, vehicles
“Three suspected organized crime gummen were killed and another three were wounded in a clash near the northeastern Mexican city of Matamoros with army troops, who seized more than 100 weapons and nearly a score of vehicles after the gun battle, military sources said.
The Defense Secretariat’s 4th Military Region said in a statement that 83 automatic rifles, 18 handguns, five grenade launchers, a rocket launcher, 11 fragmentation grenades, 28 40 mm grenades, 315 ammunition clips, more than 18,000 rounds of ammunition, 17 vehicles and eight kilos of marijuana were confiscated in Wednesday’s operation. “
Mexican federal police discover arsenal of heavy weapons in Ciudad Juarez home
“Mexican federal police said Saturday they discovered a basement arsenal hidden behind the mirrors of a home gym that included three anti-aircraft guns, dozens of grenades, a grenade launcher, AK-47s and other high-powered weapons. “
F&F was predicated on standard straw purchase from legal civilian dealers. Grenades would be nigh unto impossible with lots of very deliberate & unusual paperwork, adding $200 to the cost of each one sold.
Yes it is technically/legally/logistically possible to make that scenario happen, but falls into the “ain’t happenin’” category. Would take a special level of genius sociopath to take F&F there.
Demented, but plausible.
