Were these guns provided to the cartel folks by ATF?

It seems ATF is conspicuously missing from the list of federal agencies.....

So, why isn't Holder, Molson and obamma impeached?

(CBS News)   Selling weapons to Mexico - where cartel violence is out of control - is controversial because so many guns fall into the wrong hands due to incompetence and corruption. The Mexican military recently reported nearly 9,000 police weapons "missing."
Yet the U.S. has approved the sale of more guns to Mexico in recent years than ever before through a program called "direct commercial sales." It's a program that some say is worse than the highly-criticized "Fast and Furious" gunrunning scandal, where U.S. agents allowed thousands of weapons to pass from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartel

Better yet,, send them to guantamano after the election!

This happened under the watchful eyes of Odumbass and his Dumbocraps control .Guantanamo is too good for them . Send them to the salt mines and make them work for a change .

The ATF and Mr. Reyes are investigating Medicare Contract Fraud this week.
The Local Politicians need to have their names scrubbed from the wiretap data.

ATF not involved with AK s and the Cartels? State Department Missing too?

Gee I wonder if the US Government is selling more weapons to Mexico UNDER TREATIES THEN ALL THE PRIVATE CITIZENS AND GUN DEALERS COMBINED, THINK THAT'S POSSIBLE? NO IT COULDN'T BE !

Agree, we have troops guarding the poppy fields in Afganistan just like we did in southeast Asia in the "golden triangle" The government claims that we can't destroy the crops due to the fact that the "natives" will turn on us. B.S. if we destroy their cash crop they will have far less capitol to purchase weapon's with, unless we are selling the gun's to them too!! which would'nt surprise me in the least.
