PHOENIX—Two men have been sentenced to several years behind bars for their roles in a gun smuggling ring that was part of the U.S. government's Operation Fast and Furious. The U.S. Justice Department says Jacob Anthony Montelongo was sentenced Monday in Phoenix to nearly 3 1/2 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy and dealing guns without a license. Sean Christopher Steward received a nine-year sentence for conspiracy and lying.

During the Fast and Furious operation, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents hoped to track illegally obtained weapons to high-level arms traffickers, but authorities lost track of many of the guns.

Scapegoats, right. This is sick. The corrupt ATF has no business testifying in a court of law.

“they wanted to track the guns”

“But federal agents lost track of many of the guns”

Oh darn!
Somewhere between “want” and “lost track”, they forgot to plan and execute....

We have no champions in “our” government. They’re all a bunch of craven, lily-livered cowards who have been blackmailed, threatened, or in some cases of infiltration, willing to go along with the Caliphate agenda of the ill eagle alien in chief.

These quislings need to grow a pair, spend their fortunes seeing to their own protection and that of their families, and take action against those who would destroy us all.

If they think that they can sit in the pig sty gobbling slop, fat, dumb, and happy after sharie-uh law is implemented, they don’t see the barbecue spit headed for their nether regions.

Ladies and gentlemen of congress and the upper echelons of government in our country, you will not escape, you will not survive, you will lose everything, just like the rest of us, after you allow this to happen on your watch.

Dragged off in cuffs were....Barry Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama who also was prosecuted for usurping the office of the presidency,and being a terrorist sympathizer. Also taken to prison was Eric “The Syrian” Holder, conspirator to treason with BHO, and a suspected muslim infiltrator into the US gov’t.

Oh wait,,,I thought this was still America there for a second!

(we now return you to your next 4 years of hell brought to you by vote fraud and the DNC and the letter O and the number 16 freakin’ trillion.)

Losing track of the guns sounds like an accident, but was not. They wanted to lose track of the guns, then trace them once they appeared at Mexican crime scenes. They did execute this plan. It was a felony stupid plan.
