[T]he Justice Department's cases have, well, fallen apart, primarily because justice department prosecutors were repeatedly unable to prove to juries that what the defendants had done was illegal, The Outdoor Wire is reporting today.
The cases theyre referring to resulted from the SHOT Show sting, a story Gun Rights Examiner reported in a January 2010 column.
There's been a bust at the 2010 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference (SHOT Show). The FBI has arrested 21 executives and employees of military and law enforcement products companies for bribery of foreign officials, the report explained.
SHOT Show bust leaves more questions than answers, a follow-up story reported the next day, including:
* Did grandstanding for headlines by going after high-profile industry figures play a part in the bust?
* Was the operation indicative of continued noncooperation and friction between their agency [ATF] and the FBI?
* Was there any dot-connecting to do in terms of the administration's renewed push to ratify the global Arms Trade Treaty?
* And importantly, was the case likely to boost the career of the guy ramrodding the operation, Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Criminal Division, an Obama pick who gained notice on the national stage helping represent Bill Clinton during his impeachment?
Breuer, regular readers of this column know, was an early top Justice Department figure tied in with Project Gunwalker in reports done here and by Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street Irregulars, long before corroborating evidence, testimony, documents and reports provided more widespread validation of his involvement.

And meanwhile our Saudi financed illegal president is not even peeped about that by the RINOs in Congress... just great.
No idea what basis for the charges were?
Read the story and there are NO DETAILS...
They arrested some exec’s, made some charges.....end of story....
I know that’s rhetorical because we know the goal was achieved - condition the sheep and frighten the business into inaction.
