    By William Lajeunesse Published September 09, 2011 | FoxNews.com A third gun linked to "Operation Fast and Furious" was found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, new documents obtained exclusively by Fox News suggest, contradicting earlier assertions by federal agencies that police found only two weapons tied to the federal government's now infamous gun interdiction scandal. Sources say emails support their contention that the FBI concealed evidence to protect a confidential informant. Sources close to the Terry case say the FBI informant works inside a major Mexican cartel and provided the money to obtain the weapons...

    MEXICO CITY -- His voice cracking with emotion, President Felipe Calderon said Friday that the United States bore some blame for "an act of terror" by gangsters who doused a casino with gasoline and set a blaze that killed at least 52 people. The attack Thursday in Monterrey, an industrial city of 4 million barely a two-hour drive from Texas, stunned Mexicans and seemed likely to mark a watershed in the country's intensifying war against criminal syndicates. In a 20-minute televised address to the nation, Calderon gave an unusually blunt assessment of the causes of Mexico's surging violence before flying...
  • FARAGO: Was CIA behind Operation Fast and Furious?

    The Washington Times ^ | August 11, 2011 | Robert Farago
    According to a CIA insider, the agency had a strong hand in creating, orchestrating and exploiting Operation Fast and Furious. The CIA’s motive is clear enough: The U.S. government is afraid the Los Zetas drug cartel will mount a successful coup d’etat against the government of Felipe Calderon. Founded by ex-Mexican special forces, the Zetas already control huge swaths of Mexican territory. They have the organization, arms and money needed to take over the entire country. Former CIA pilot Robert Plumlee and former CIA operative and DEA Director Phil Jordan recently said the brutally efficient Mexican drug cartel has stockpiled...
  • Fast & Furious Straw Buyer Faces Charges for Gunrunning

    (snip) Ureil Patino, a prolific 25-year old straw-buyer, is responsible for a large percentage of those guns purchased. Authorities estimate that he purchased upwards of 720 firearms before federal agents apprehended him this past January. Of those 720 firearms he purchased, at least 157 ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. According to prosecutors, Patino bought 72 AK-47s in one 12-day period. And, perhaps what’s most frustrating, he continued to purchase these weapons under the auspices of the ATF. In fact when he walked into the Lone Wolf of Trading Company in Glendale, Arizona, last August and ordered...

    Seattle Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 9 August, 2011 | Dave Workman
    Readers of Tuesday’s edition of USA Today were treated to an editorial, a rebuttal by National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and a “hard news” story that, taken all together, make it appear that the newspaper’s editorial board either doesn’t “get it” about Operation Fast and Furious, or they are feverishly trying to deflect responsibility. It is not likely Pacific Northwest gun rights activists will buy it, judging from conversations on the Northwest Firearms and WaGuns forums. In the story, focusing on the most prolific Fast and Furious suspect, Uriel Patino, the newspaper clearly points to the culpability...

    “Let’s Arm The Mexican Drug Cartels With Thousands Of Guns And Continue To Leave The Border Completely Wide Open”July 11, 2011 How in the world are Americans living in the southwest United States supposed to sleep peacefully at night when the U.S. government has given thousands of guns to Mexican drug cartels and continues to leave the border completely wide open? The brutality and viciousness of Mexican drug cartels is almost beyond description, and yet the U.S. government has armed them to the teeth and does next to nothing to stop their incursions into U.S. territory. "Project Gunrunner" was supposed...

    Eric Holder gave false info. to a Congressional Committee last May about ATF operations tied to the deaths of two U.S. Agents; we have the proof. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Special Agent Jaime Zapata from ICE both died from weapons that were sent to Mexico from the United States. There is no knowledge as to how many lives the U.S. weapons smuggling programs claimed in Mexico. (SALEM, Ore.) - New information indicates that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder's actions are squarely behind the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) operation known as "Fast and Furious", which orchestrated...

    I'm working on another thread about how the Elites seem to be in full Civil War right now, and the ATF is really a prime example, it looks like the current administration's open and blatant plan to grab guns is being exposed, big time. I will acknowledge a lack of sources at the moment, they all seem to lead to an Examiner story, but ATF's own site acknowledges the program. This is a developing story and I'll add more links as obtained. Operation Castaway. Used in conjunction with Operation Fast & Furious, the program has allowed the release of THOUSANDS...
