Only right whiners would be so f*cking stupid to think that if a drug gang member did not obtain his gun through Fast & Furious that he would be unarmed.10/01/2012
Numerous kids are casualities of the Juarez drug cartel wars; Univision says Fast and Furious may have contributed
Update: A spokesperson for the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C., said the embassy maintains its position that it had no knowledge of Fast and Furious until the U.S. operation was made public. It also abides by previous statements of the Mexican Federal Attorney General's Office that it was investigating the allegations. According to U.S. lawmakers who investigated Fast and Furious, 150 people in Mexico were victims of weapons tied to the ATF's operation; however, details for most of those 150 people were not provided. Hundreds of F&F weapons are still out there.
Univision TV aired an investigative special last night on Operation Fast and Furious. Citing a Mexican army document, the special presented by Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, alleged that weapons linked to the failed operation of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, were used in the 2010 Salvarcar neighborhood massacre in Juarez. Teenagers were celebrating a birthday party when a group of armed men showed up and began firing at them without warning. More than a dozen kids were killed and about as many others wounded.
100K guns smuggled into Mexico the past 5 years & it is all the fault of the 2k that made it through Fast & Furious.
It is a viable method of stopping smuggling operations by allowing some to pass & try to track where they go.
It was a risk.
Too bad we just couldn't stop the practice of individuals buying 40 AK47s at a clip. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooo.
