Too bad the guns couldn't have been put to good use by putting down the rabid drug cartel slime... :|

This is going to be interesting to see how this turns out. Repeatedly, this administration has blamed gun stores in AZ for selling the weapons to mexican arms smugglers. All the while, these stores reported the buyers and didn't want to sell the guns but were told to do so. Now, there are reports of our military guns that are sold to Mexico ending up in the drug cartels hands.

I find it highly unlikely that Eric Holder didn't know anything about this. This is not good for the Obama administration.

I heard about this this morning. It's senseless and absolutely unbelievable. For the President to be shaking his head "not me" is an outrage. He's so good at placing blame. I can't wait to see where this one takes him.

>"The investigation of a U.S. Government operation that allowed guns to be sold to buyers who then funneled those weapons to Mexican drug organizations took a huge step forward today in Congress, as three federal agents said they warned superiors to stop those plans, but were ignored and rebuked.

The controversial program known as "Fast and Furious," got its genesis in 2006 in Texas as part of "Operation Gunrunner," but went nationwide soon after, arriving in Phoenix in 2009, where it quickly drew strong opposition from some federal agents there.

"There have been grave mistakes made in this case," said Peter J. Forcelli, a Supervisory Special Agent with Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) in Phoenix, who first raised the issue with his superiors two years ago.

"Allowing firearms to be trafficked to criminals is a dangerous and deadly strategy," Forcelli told a House Committee."<

The NRA is not responsible for "Fast And Furious". The shift the blame is driving me nuts.

I don't see this as any different than drug "investigations" where law enforcemnt "allows" mass quantities of drugs to be bought and sold, so their operatives can build a case. I remember reading, recently, about a drug investigation that
