“Fast and Furious” is a Department of Justice ATF program ostensibly to track Mexican cartels by purposely allowing licensed firearms dealers to sell weapons to illegal straw buyers, hoping to track the guns to Mexican drug cartel leaders and arrest them.
In other words, while the Obama is bent on imposing gun control on Americans, his administration has been running guns to Mexican criminals.
Fast and Furious took the life of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry when, on December 14, 2010, he was shot while attempting to arrest five individuals in Nogales, Arizona. Two of the guns found at the scene were linked to Fast and Furious.
When the scandalous program was uncovered, Americans thought that was the end to Fast and Furious. But not only is it continuing, the arms “transfers” have gone global, specifically to Muslim jihadists in the Middle East, according to Lt. Col. Matt Smithy-Meck, a retired U.S. Marine who is working on behalf of Terry’s family.
Adan Salazar reports for InfoWars that in an interview with Alex Jones on March 29, 2016, Lt. Col. Matt Smith-Meck revealed the following:
(1) Fast and Furious actually transferred more weapons than initially suspected, “in the magnitude of 4,700”. Smith-Meck said: “Not only is it guns and rifles, but also grenades, grenade launchers, military grade night vision goggles, black special forces tactical uniforms.”
(2) Fast and Furious involved not just guns, but also military equipment and installations. Smith-Meck said: “I was approached by a Col. Taylor – told me he was from OSI, Office of Special Investigations and that the military was aware of possible military installation and equipment involvement with Fast and Furious.”
(3) Arms transfers into Mexico are ongoing to this day.
(4) Those weapons may then be resold to international networks outside Mexico — “part of a much larger international gun running operation” — specifically Morocco and Algiers in the Middle East. Mexican traffickers were already on record meeting with foreign purchasers in 2010, and weapons linked to the operation later showed up in Morocco. Smith-Meck said that on October 16, 2010, the commander of Morocco’s internal security forces (DST) “reported to his supervisors that Fast and Furious weapons were in the kingdom of Morocco en route to arm the rebels in Algeria.”
(5) According to his sources, Smith-Meck predicts yet another arms transfer to Mexico will occur towards the middle of May, which may then be exported to the Middle East: “We’ve got a mid-May of this year time frame where another large shipment is scheduled to go across from basically Arizona into Mexico, and we’re trying to make sure that does not occur.” Smith-Meck said he had forwarded the information on to Rep. Trey Gowdy.
(6) Suspecting that Agent Terry might have been murdered for digging too deep into Fast and Furious, Lt. Smith-Meck said he himself was harassed and threatened. On the night of March 22, 2015, while he was walking his dog at around 10 p.m., someone approached him, knocked him down, kicked him in his lower back and told him, “You obviously aren’t getting the message. Keep your F’ing mouth shut.”
Smith-Meck filed a police report about the incident and declares he will continue searching for the truth of Brian Terry’s death and is asking for Congress’ help to find answers.
In a more recent InfoWars interview on May 16 with Lt. Col. Matt Smith-Meck, Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, and Kent Terry, it is claimed that a major Fast & Furious arms shipment to ISIS will take place in 2 weeks. Plumlee is a former CIA contract pilot who flew drugs and arms for the CIA; he says the State Department and the Clinton Foundation are also involved in the international gun-running. Terry is the brother of slain Border Agent Brian Terry.
