Yes sir. The Feds in their ideological domination of the world thought up the crime busting scheme of the century, give guns to Mexican Drug Cartels. “See what we’ll do is, watch the 5 fast & furious movies and take lessons from their ‘trick out cars’. Then we’ll put a super cool sumtin’ or other with the guns to take right to the bad guy”. Yeah that did sound like a comedy right? No, this is the glorious US gov’t hard at work with the brightest minds it can hire. Well supposedly, they lost track of the guns. I am sure it was more like the Iran Contra affair, where the US supplied Iraq and Russia supplied Iran hoping in a bid to benefit the two powerhouses, these smaller countries would just kill each other off.  Didn’t work, and doesn’t now, and now the US gov’t is responsible for higher death tolls and more violence.

U.S. gun-tracing operation let firearms into criminal hands

By Kim Murphy, Los Angeles Times

A federal operation that allowed weapons from the U.S. to pass into the hands of suspected gun smugglers so they could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels has lost track of hundreds of firearms, many of which have been linked to crimes, including the fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent in December.

The investigation, known as Operation Fast and Furious, was conducted even though U.S. authorities suspected that some of the weapons might be used in crimes, according to a variety of federal agents who voiced anguished objections to the operation.

Many of the weapons have spread across the most violence-torn states in Mexico, with at least 195 linked to some form of crime or law enforcement action, according to documents obtained by the Center for Public Integrity and The Times.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which ran the operation, said that 1,765 guns were sold to suspected smugglers during a 15-month period of the investigation. Of those, 797 were recovered on both sides of the border, including 195 in Mexico after they were used in crimes, collected during arrests or intercepted through other law enforcement operations.
