A two-year old news article about Arizona guns falling into the hands of Mexican cartels, that preceded the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and the unraveling of government-sanctioned gunwalking, has been rediscovered by Attorney David Hardy on his Of Arms and the Law blog. The story was filed [r]ight in the middle of the Fast and Furious gunrunning, Hardy observes, adding with SAC William Newell overseeing the operation.
Special Agent in Charge Newell headed the Phoenix field division from which Operation Fast and Furious was executed.
Weapons that trace back to dealers and sellers in Arizona are being found at various Mexican crime scenes, the ABC15 news account begins, citing Newell throughout.
At various Mexican crime scenes, Newell said they are finding weapons that trace back to dealers and sellers in Arizona, the story continues, quoting Newells claim that I go to Mexico all the time, I see US-sourced firearms there all the time. A large percentage of those firearms that they illegally acquire and illegally traffic to Mexico are from the U.S. and a large percentage are from Arizona.
What Newell gave no hint of was the involvement of his office in doing its utmost to ensure that would happen, and by the time he opportunistically used the media as his mouthpiece, we know from the Congressional Joint Staff Report on Fast and Furious subtitled Fueling Cartel Violence, he was masking his involvement in upping the numbers at the same time he was exploiting gun trafficking as a public relations tool.
In late 2009, ATF officials stationed in Mexico began to notice a large volume of guns appearing there that were traced to the ATFs Phoenix Field Division, the report reveals. These weapons were increasingly recovered in great numbers from violent crime scenes.
