Skip to comments.Mexican Ambassador confirms early citizen journalist reports amidst media spin(gunwalker murdergate)

The Mexican ambassador to the United States told a Capitol Hill forum that his government was kept in the dark about U.S. government-condoned and abetted gunwalking operations, and also questioned the intent behind Operation Fast and Furious, The Los Angeles Times is reporting today. Appearing before the New Democrat Network...a center-left think tank and advocacy organization, and the New Policy Institute, one of its sister organizations, Arturo Sarukhans claims raise questions as to why major news outlets like The Times are just now getting around to reporting on information raised in this column and on the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog back in January, 2011.
Sarukhan complained that his government had been left in the dark about operations to stop gun smuggling at the border, the report confirms.
Mexico was never apprised how the operation would be designed and implemented, Sarukhan claimed. "Regardless of whether this was or was not the intent or the design of Fast and Furious, the thinking that you can let guns walk across the border...is really an outstanding lack of understanding of how these criminal organizations are operating on both sides of our common borders."
That latter quote is significant, as it raises the possibility from a prominent official, one assigned credibility by two governments and the media, that the intent of gunwalking may not have been to maintain operational control of those weapons.
Also significant is the leftist bent of the groups hosting Sarukhan, as opposed to a neutral forum, and the fact that despite citing poisoned
wellsprings in transnational gun trafficking efforts directly resulting from the governments role in criminal actions, the direction of Authorized Journalist Jamie Goldbergs article predictably steers his readers down a familiar path.

Gunwalker / Murdergate ping.
More proof that the intent of Fast and Furious was to undermine the Second Amendment.
No, not the 2nd... the whole Constitution.
Congress only has the power to declare war (and therefore authorize acts of war), yet these were perpetrated by these agencies. That no corrective action has been taken is quite significant, it illustrates how little concern for the Constitution there is among two whole branches of governance.
This is also furthered by illustrations of all the Natural Born Citizen cases that have been thrown out (usually due "lack of standing or sometimes technicality [usually administrative, rather than legal]). This illustrates that the third branch of government also holds the constitution in disregard.
Given the following definition for Natural Born Citizen
A citizen who was born in the country* of two married citizens [of any type].* The segment "born in the country" is arguable. No person would claim that an Ambassador who married a citizen and took her with him on assignment, subsequently having a child, would claim that child was not a [natural born] citizen.
Even so this story is not going to go away.
