They had remarkably small numbers ~ like 7 long guns had ever been discovered that were traceable back to the US, but the Post used that as a basis for a 90% US sourcing.
It was pretty clear the Post had had "unfettered" access to ATF personnel on the border, in Mexico, in the Arizona field office and in Washington DC ~ and also to Justice Department folks involved in supposed ATF gun captures and tracing.
It was about that time that the very same ATF people the Posties were interviewing for their stories were doing the "Fast and Furious" trick ~ as well as some others like it in other states.
The same people the Post was portraying as heroic were knowingly involved in shipping guns to Mexican drug cartels.
It is inescapable that the Post writers and their editors KNEW SOME STUFF.
They've since removed those stories to their "Pay for it sucker" server. I had a chance to cruise back through the articles just before that happened and it's pretty clear it was a hand in glove relationship.
It appears that the WP is an accomplice to Obama/Holder’s attack on the 2nd Amend., murder of a federal agent, death of hundreds of Mexicans, and subsequent coverup.
