Scandal: The administration's gun-running fiasco claims the life of a Mexican police chief, revealing that the weapons have made it into the hands of drug cartels deep inside Mexico.
It's been lost in the litany of Obama scandals, but Fast and Furious, like Benghazi, is one that has produced a body count, in this case one that's still rising as the White House and Department of Justice continue to restrict and hinder access to related documents. Attorney General Eric Holder remains in contempt of Congress for his role in the ongoing cover-up.
President Obama's contempt for the rule of law hit a new low when, on the eve of a vote to hold the AG in contempt of Congress, he granted Holder's 11th-hour request to hide sought-after documents on Operation Fast and Furious under the cover of executive privilege.
One internal document obtained by the Los Angeles Times shows how deadly Fast and Furious was and continues to be with the death Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo. He was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire. A bodyguard was also killed.
A semi-automatic WASR rifle, the firearm that killed the chief, was traced back to the Lone Wolf Trading Company, a gun store in Glendale, Ariz. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed illegal purchasers to buy the firearms at the Lone Wolf store in the Phoenix suburb and other gun shops in the Southwest.

The US Congress is an accessory before the fact

while weaponizing al Qaeda, disarming Americans,
and leaving all borders wide open for terrorists.
How many more Mexicans and Americans must die?? ?? ??
IBD EDITORIAL PING
None of the reports I saw mentioned whether the Rosales family or the unnamed body guard had any children. Mexico doesn't need anymore kidnapping targets.
I doubt anyone in the Obama administration cares anything about that.
