The Ever Evolving Corruption of Operation Gunwalker

with one comment

I’m frankly amazed at the amount of government corruption that’s been involved in Operation Fast and Furious. What started at simply as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) allowing guns to be smuggled across the border by known drug cartel members is now blowing up into an inter-agency fiasco:

In a separate development, congressional sources have learned that not only was U.S. taxpayer money being used to buy guns that were later sent to Mexico, but the main target of the investigation was actually a FBI informant and former drug dealer who had been deported years ago.

[…]

The alleged coverup involves three law enforcement agencies: the ATF, FBI and the DEA, or Drug Enforcement Administration.

According to sources, unbeknown to the ATF, the target of their operation was a FBI confidential informant, a fact that only became known to them in April of this year after an 18-month investigation that cost millions of dollars of tax dollars.

“They were going after someone they could never have,” a source in Washington told Fox News. “The Mr. Big they wanted was using government money to buy guns that went to the cartels. The FBI knew it and didn’t tell them.”

How deep can a rabbit hole go? Not only was the government allowing firearms to be illegally smuggled across the border to Mexico, not only were two border patrol agents murdered by firearms the ATF allowed to be smuggled, but the target of the ATF’s investigation was an Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) informant who was using taxpayer money to buy the guns being smuggled across.

By Thor in Valhalla. Why the fuck does anybody think the government is legitimate? Not only to the make and enforce laws against non-violent behavior but they also use money taken from the people to arm cartels who are murdering said people. On top of that not two agencies in the government’s law enforcement arm are apparently capable of communicating with one another. I’m sure the ATF would have loved to know that their target was a fucking FBI informant when they first found him.

Now millions of taxpayer dollars have gone into investigating this mess while an untold number of taxpayer dollars have gone to arming the Mexican drug cartels. Fuck everybody involved with this mess… in the ass… with a retractable baton!
