Fast And Furious: The Criminal Enterprise That Keeps Producing Results
For the record,
Fast and Furious was not a "Botched operation", it was not a "Sting", it wasn't a "Law Enforcement Action".
It was a political action. It was deliberate. It was done to undermine the rights of the American People.
The only thing "botched" about it was the cover-up. It wouldn't have been exposed had not a Federal Agent been killed as a result of it. As long as it was mere mortal "civilians" on either side of the border being killed, the program would have continued apace. I do not doubt that other similar operations are ongoing.
But, we may rest assured the vast majority of ATF guys and all Federal Law Imposement personnel are super duper good guys who would never do such a thing. Yep, if they even knew of such an operation they would risk their lives and careers exposing every detail. I'm sure of it. Don't you remember the dozens, nay hundreds, of ATF agents who resigned in disgust after learning of their agency's deliberate smuggling operation? Hmmm, me neither.
According to Judicial Watch,
One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”
A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.
The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations—for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic—but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual. Instead, ATF leaders went out of their way to keep the information under the radar and ensure that the gun owner’s identity was “kept quiet,” according to law enforcement sources involved with the case. “Agents were told, in the process of taking the fully auto, not to anger the seller to prevent him from going public,” a veteran law enforcement official told Judicial Watch.
An ATF spokesman, Corey Ray, at the agency’s Washington D.C. headquarters told Judicial Watch that “no firearms used in the Paris attacks have been traced” by the agency. When asked about the ROI report linking the weapon used in Paris to Phoenix, Ray said “I’m not familiar with the report you’re referencing.”
