There was no plan to arrest drug cartel higher ups.
The only hint of a plan was in testimony to the house investigating committee by Bill Newell, where he said that once they had lots of traces of guns from Fast and Furious at Mexican crime scenes, then they would turn over to the Mexican government the information that those guns had been illegally purchased at American gun stores.
This is so thin as to be embarrassing. It was already illegal for the drug lords to possess the guns and to murder with them under Mexican law. The fact that they had been illegally purchased in America does nothing but bolster the fraudulent case for more gun control in the United states.
Gunwalker / Murdergate ping.
Hispanic immigrants must come to terms with the fact that the Obama administration actually concocted and implemented a scheme that needed many dead and maimed Mexicans to be successful. A cynical, bizarre political scheme to discredit legal gun availability that actually resulted in the death of many innocent Mexicans. Voters in New Mexico, Arizona, Texas and Colorado might want to reconsider their support for such cruel people.
Watergate, the golden age, back when the ends did not justify the means.
"Operation Fast and Furious was not the only gun walking program. Univision shed some light on another, Operation Castaway, centered around Hugh Crumpler, a 65 year old Vietnam War vet. Guns from this operation were found in Honduras, Puerto Rico, and Colombia."
True, and look at the debacle and coverup over the deaths of Americans in Libya. The old media is proven to be the oily shills of the Democrat party.
Nixon was severely criticized for obtaining a single FBI file on a political opponent, but Bill Clinton kept an office in the White House with hundreds of such files—and not the finished, verified FBI files, but its raw files, also loaded with unproven innuendo and rumor. A minor aide was chastised for managing the office he had been hired to manage.
Nixon was severely criticized for requesting that the IRS audit a political opponent who was known to engaged in criminal tax evasion. Both Clinton and Obama regularly directed and directs the IRS to repeatedly, and groundlessly, audit those citizens who are substantial supporters of the Republican party and/or the conservative agenda. Obama also has ordered the Department of Labor to conduct its own, groundless, audits of such political enemies.
It can be said that the entire rationale for the Watergate investigations was based in the terror within the Democrat party that Nixon would launch a major investigation into “Who was responsible for losing the Vietnam War?”, which could have devastated them politically as well as some of them criminally.
The Watergate investigations were to be used as a political bargaining chip against this Vietnam War inquiry. But when Nixon showed no intention to create that inquiry, the Democrats saw it as a superb opportunity to cripple the Republican party, effectively blaming them for the decade long foreign policy debacle.
Shame on the Washington Post for ignoring this story... shame on them.
