"Human sacrifices suspected along Mexico border," reads the headline of a disturbing MSNBC story. The story, admittedly, has nothing to do with "Operation Fast and Furious" or "Project Gunwalker." Still, a journalist writing a story about the U.S. government's deliberate arming of ruthless Mexican drug cartels could do far worse for a headline.
The MSNBC story is about a poor Mexican family, worshippers of Santa Muerte (Saint Death), who are accused of murdering two 10-year-old boys and a 55-year-old woman, believing that these blood sacrifices would bring them wealth:

The idea of sacrificing human life for one's own gain of course requires fully investing oneself in the notion that the people being sacrificed are of so little value, compared to what one hopes to gain, as to make their deaths an acceptable cost. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) supervisor David Voth put it this way, when agents under him objected to the inevitable loss of life in Mexico stemming from "Project Gunwalker":

Some, of course, dismiss that notion as a "paranoid conspiracy theory."

“If you are going to make an omelet, you need to scramble some eggs.”
Did Voth actually say “If you are going to make an omelet, you need to scramble some eggs.”?
That’s downright Stalinesque.
