The Examiner has a post up that is frankly baffling and validates the concern expressed by many of us that when you look at the evidence, dismiss the implausible, and are left with the facts, logic dictates that this operation had nothing to do with stopping the flow of guns and everything to do with actually getting guns in the hands of drug cartels to kill people. It seems like the people at the Examiner got their hands on evidence that the ATF authorized direct sales of arms to Mexican cartels, which should, at a minimum, be a criminal endeavor, considering they had to know that once these crossed the border they would lose track of them and that they would be used to kill people.
A letter forwarded on Friday by a proven reliable source to Gun Rights Examiner and Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars documents Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives management authorizing the sale of firearms, which sources say were intended for delivery to cartel purchasers as part of the “Fast and Furious” / ”Gunwalker” scandal. Written by then-ATF Phoenix Group VII Supervisor David Voth, the June 01, 2010 letter to a Federal Firearms Licensee, whose name is redacted, advises:
Per Section925(a)(1) of the Gun Control Act (GCA) exempts law enforcement agencies from the transportation, shipment, receipt, or importation controls of the GCA when firearms are to be used for the official business of the agency.
Please accept this letter in lieu of completing an ATF Form 4473 for the purchase of four (4) CAI, Model Draco, 7.62×39 mm pistols, by Special Agent John Dodson. These aforementioned pistols will be used by Special Agent Dodson in furtherance of the performance of his official duties. In addition, Special Agent Dodson has not been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. If you have any questions, you may contact me at telephone number 602-605-6501.

Remember, if we are to believe the facts, and I do, the Mexican government was not aware of this operation being run on their soil and against them. The usual defenses that they where trying to “track guns” don’t fly, unless the intent was to then say the Mexican cartels where getting their arms from the US. What good would that do anyone, huh? The attempt to “Blame Boosh” is also nothing but bullshit intended to deflect and confuse the issue at hand. Pretense that the higher ups, including the DOJ and even the WH where not involved, and that this was all an ATF exclusive fuck up, have already been debunked. One can be forgiven for concluding that the sole viable reason for this operation was to get guns in the hands of Mexican cartels, with the full knowledge they would be used to kill people – count is upwards of 200 directly attributed to arms from this operation, now – because those deaths where wanted. What other logical reason would there be to want people to be killed I ask, if it wasn’t to use that to sway public opinion?
The facts are simple: we are left with the ATF buying guns, CASH, and shipping them to Mexico, where they where used to kill not just Mexicans, but then also US border patrol agent Terry. Body count seems to be the objective. It now also looks like they tried to cover up these clearly criminal actions once this thing went south, with the DOJ running the show and the FBI likely responsible for tampering with and even destroying evidence at the scene where Brian Terry was murdered, by throwing the director of the ATF under the bus. This government ran an operation in Mexico with the intent of using the body count to get something back here at home. And this is going on right as the left is losing the battle in court to disarm the citizenry they look down upon and get around the 2nd Amendment they so despise.
They are all in full cover up mode, but the truth is coming out. Nixon got in trouble for far less. And Watergate I remind you cost nobody their lives. This criminal operation killed over 200 Mexicans and a border patrol agent. I guess we all learned another firearm safety rule too: guns are dangerous in the hands of leftist autocrats, hell bent on disarming the peasants they so want to control without the fear of them fighting back. I am sure our usual deniers will find issue with this and claim I am wrong for pointing these things out. They will even demand facts, dismissing the facts that have come out backing me up in the process, without blinking an eye.
And the LSM is doing more of the same. Wish they where as gung-ho about a real crime against the American people as they where about their chance to take down Nixon. What a disservice they are doing the American people which should know how the nanny staters hold them in such low regard that they are willing to help murder people to convince them they should give up their right and ability of self defense.
