Report points to Clinton-era gunwalking ^ | 6/29 | david codrea

Posted on 06/29/2012 6:51:57 PM PDT by RummyChick

The first official identified by name in the Fast and Furious gunwalking investigation has been tied to a similar Minnestoa operation in 1996 where “more than 150 guns flow[ed] into the Twin Cities underworld,” Kevin Diaz of the Star Tribune reported yesterday. Identifying supervisor George Gillett, Jr., who is now a cooperating witness in House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform investigations, Diaz reveals “Gillett was a street agent tracking gun store sales to ‘straw buyers’ working for suspected gang members. Some of those guns turned up in drug busts and crime scenes, including one that was found at the scene of a deadly shootout in north Minneapolis.”

Gillette was first identified as a central figure in the Fast and Furious investigation by a post on CleanUpATF, a whistleblower website aimed at exposing agency corruption, which was first reported by Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars in late December, 2010.

“That must have been around the same time they helped facilitate walking some “ANFO” into Oklahoma City.”

Wasn’t Holder or FBI or someone in the current scandal implicated in the ANFO running?

Somehow, this brings my mind to the info about recent “grenade walking.” Not hearing much about the grenade walking scandal these days. That was some explosive info when it came out.

Yes, Holder and Jamie Gorelick under Butch Reno.

Someone around here has a PDF of a sworn affidavit from Terri Nichols detailing Fed informants involved in OKC that was summarily ignored by the MSM and DOJ.

Exactly! It’s not really a big mystery.

It would also be wise to not overlook *Operation Dutchboy* in Arizona in 2001, intended to affect pending arizona state firearms legislation, and involving, according to at least one news story, at least 45 BATF personnel, and in which a BATF informent murdered a California gun dealer who had identified him.
