Reporting from Washington—

High-powered assault weapons illegally purchased under the ATF’s Fast and Furious program in Phoenix ended up in a home belonging to the purported top Sinaloa cartel enforcer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, whose organization was terrorizing that city with the worst violence in the Mexican drug wars.
In all, 100 assault weapons acquired under Fast and Furious were transported 350 miles from Phoenix to El Paso, making that West Texas city a central hub for gun traffickers. Forty of the weapons made it across the border and into the arsenal of Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo, a feared cartel leader in Ciudad Juarez, according to federal court records and trace documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The smugglers’ tactics — quickly moving the weapons far from ATF agents in southern Arizona, where it had been assumed they would circulate — vividly demonstrate that what had been viewed as a local problem was much larger. Six other Fast and Furious guns destined for El Paso were recovered in Columbus, N.M.

“These Fast and Furious guns were going to Sinaloans, and they are killing everyone down there,” said one knowledgeable U.S. government source, who asked for anonymity because of the ongoing investigations. “But that’s only how many we know came through Texas. Hundreds more had to get through.”

It’s always a bit of a revelation when false flag ops are exposed, when we learn –if we can!– just who was involved.

The cover up is what will be the deciding factor if history is shown to repeat itself in this case. Remember Watergate? The cover up was what did it. Just now Cummings has introduced a bill to seal all Obama’s presidential records, ironically one of the first acts in the office of POTUS was to revoke an identical bill protecting Bush Jnr.’s presidential records, because he was the “Transparency” person supposedly. Aside from this I was wondering about this Cummings bill which incidently is co sponsored by Denis Kucinich which made me stop in my tracks and seriously ask God… Read more »

They are going to subpoena Holder about his knowledge and/or dealings with regard to this, and I hope they intend to hold him to the fire on it. And he best not claim ” I had no idea” or play the ” I don’t recall” card… He will be nothing more than the fall-guy for BO… That is, IF they can get him on it. I hope they chew him up and spit him out…

I am outraged that they literally give these to the CIA trained Zetas.
Don’t believe me… Research it.
On another note…
I especially like the 50 Cal. One of these in the right hands can be very fun as well as effective well past 1000+ meters.
Looks as if I’ll have to move from where I live to be able to lawfully own one of these. They have been outlawed where I live. BUT you can still build one.
The Mac Millan is my first choice……
Like I say PTSF !!!!!

There are a lot of people who need to be sent away to prison over this insane operation.
-Not just Herr Erich von Holderen.
