A semi-automatic WASR rifle lost in the ATF Fast and Furious scheme was used to murder a Mexican police chief. It was an ATF rifle left behind by a violent drug cartel deep inside Mexico. Two hundred Mexicans have died from Fast & Furious guns.
The failed ATF operation – Fast & Furious – was the brain child of the Department of Justice. Eric Holder claimed to not know anything about it. President Obama made the same claim. Holder said he never saw the memo advising him of the operation.
Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, the police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo, was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen stopped his patrol car and opened fire on him, killing him and one of his bodyguards, wounding his wife and a second bodyguard.
The ATF rifle that was allowed to “walk” was traced back to the Lone Wolf trading company, a gun store in Glendale, Arizona.
When the ATF let the guns walk, only 2% of the thousands of guns had tracers on them. Holder was held in contempt by Congress for refusing to turn over records pertinent to the case.
Not turning over records or remembering anything about anything is this administration’s pattern, not only with Fast and Furious, but with the IRS scandal, which they are not even investigating, and with Benghazi, to name a few.
IRS officials know nothing, Clapper knows nothing or gives us the least untruthful comments he can, Holder knows nothing, and, of course, Obama knows nothing about anything.
