    The deadly-but-forgotten government gun-running scandal known as “Fast and Furious” has lain dormant for years, thanks to White House stonewalling and media compliance. But newly uncovered emails have reopened the case, exposing the anatomy of a coverup by an administration that promised to be the most transparent in history.

    At least 20 other deaths or violent crimes have been linked to Fast and Furious-trafficked guns.

    A federal judge has forced the release of more than 20,000 pages of emails and memos previously locked up under President Obama’s phony executive-privilege claim. A preliminary review shows top Obama officials deliberately obstructing congressional probes into the border gun-running operation.

    Fast and Furious was a Justice Department program that allowed assault weapons — including .50-caliber rifles powerful enough to take down a helicopter — to be sold to Mexican drug cartels allegedly as a way to track them. But internal documents later revealed the real goal was to gin up a crisis requiring a crackdown on guns in America. Fast and Furious was merely a pretext for imposing stricter gun laws.

    Mexico did lose a helicopter to the cartels about 4 years ago.

    Someone needs to wake up the RNC.

    Mexico is a rich country ruled by the white upper classes. The law of Spain derived from Rome says that one is guilty till proven innocent. Mexico is just now implementing legal reform. Catholicism was severely curbed by the Revolution of 100 years ago that ushered in one party rule. Corruption and vice saturate the country. Squalor is everywhere. It is a pity. If a wall could stop human trafficking and drug exportation, organized crime might be stopped in Mexico. I myself never want to go to Mexico again.

    I actually remember a news conference by the AG laying the ground work for stricter g*n laws in the U.S. because of violence in M*xico.

    There were non-stop media reports of violent d*aths in M*xico by g*ns bought in the U.S. A short time later, the news broke of a bord*r ag*nt that been killed by one of these g*ns and the link to F*st and F*rious.

    Suddenly, not a single story concerning the g*n violence in M*xico due to g*ns from the U.S. could be found. It all stopped.

    How strange

    Peace to you

    Why are you not spelling "guns" and "Mexico"?
