Justice Department documents showing that weapons sent from the U.S. into Mexico under Obama’s Fast and Furious gun-running program are being widely used by major Mexican drug cartels.
94 Fast and Furious weapons were seized from December 2012 to March 2016 according to Judicial Watch.
They are also reporting that a Fast and Furious weapon was found in “Chapo” Guzman’s hideout.
Judicial Watch Reports:
“According to the new records, over the past three years, a total of 94 Fast and Furious firearms have been recovered in Mexico City and 12 Mexican states, with the majority being seized in Sonora, Chihuahua and Sinaloa. Of the weapons recovered, 82 were rifles and 12 were pistols identified as having been part of the Fast and Furious program. Reports suggest the Fast and Furious guns are tied to at least 69 killings.”
One of many of the huge list of Obama’s scandals, Fast and Furious was begun by the ATF under Obama as a way to try to track illicit gun sales.
Agents knowingly allowed guns to be sold to traffickers. They were then shipped to Mexico, where they ended up in the hands of drug cartels.
For years, Obama asserted executive privilege to block Congress from obtaining documents relating to Fast and Furious.
Obama relented last moth, turning over thousands of pages of records.
In January, a federal district court judge had rejected Obama’s executive privilege claim over the records.
So now where do we go? IMPEACH! Don’t we wish?
Eric Holder was even held in contempt for refusal to release these Fast and Furious documents. But it seems Obama just keeps getting away with anything he wants.
But for each release, in this information age, his legacy takes another mark. This release is no different!
Most important, we must not fail to mention Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
On Dec. 14, 2010, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed during a gunfight. Guns in the shootout were involved in the Fast and Furious operation. Obama, you killed this man! He was the first known casualty!
