    Looks like Mexico has had it with team zero.

    ....Months after the deadly lapses in the program were revealed in the U.S. media — prompting congressional hearings and the reassignment of the acting chief of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — top Mexican officials say American authorities have still not offered them a proper accounting of what went wrong.

    Marisela Morales, Mexico's attorney general and a longtime favorite of American law enforcement agents in Mexico, told The Times that she first learned about Fast and Furious from news reports. And to this day, she said, U.S. officials have not briefed her on the operation gone awry, nor have they apologized.

    "At no time did we know or were we made aware that there might have been arms trafficking permitted," Morales, Mexico's highest-ranking law enforcement official, said in a recent interview. "In no way would we have allowed it, because it is an attack on the safety of Mexicans."

    Morales said she did not want to draw conclusions before the outcome of U.S. investigations, but that deliberately letting weapons "walk" into Mexico — with the intention of tracing the guns to drug cartels — would represent a "betrayal" of a country enduring a drug war that has killed more than 40,000 people. U.S. agents lost track of hundreds of weapons under the program.

    Concealment of the bloody toll of Fast and Furious took place despite official pronouncements of growing cooperation and intelligence-sharing in the fight against vicious Mexican drug-trafficking organizations. The secrecy also occurred as President Felipe Calderon and other senior Mexican officials complained bitterly, time and again, about the flow of weapons into Mexico from the U.S.

    P.S.; to the hypocrite libbies who say we never post anything of substance, while planning to ignore this and other threads dealing with this subject, I say "pound sand".

    I saw who cares what Mexico thinks. Let's mind our own business in the world and stop worrying about other countries.

    Our government is so corrupt. It lies to other nations, its own people and yes even to itself while justifying what it does by the minds of men. One has to ask not why God would judge a nation as ours, but why He has not already destroyed it?

    You are advocating continued US imperialism and empire?

    I believe that he meant "I say" not "I saw".

    However, in this case weapons were allowed to be illegally purchased and transported into Mexico from the US through the misfeasence of BATF and DOJ officials. The local dealers when they reported the suspicious purchases were told to sell the weapons to the straw buyers by BATF. I would agree with Matt if the BATF and DoJ hadn't come up with Fast and Furious on their own hook.

    Yeah it's kinda like saying we shouldn't worry about party B's complaining because their next door neighbor party A dumped a ton or so of toxic waste on to B's property.
