Operation Fast and Furious Weapons Found at Scenes of Violent Crimes in the U.S.

Despite the White House’s best attempts to stymie the release of information about this ill-advised program, news about the ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious continues to find the light of day.  The latest news is the weapons involved in the operation have been linked to at least eleven violent crimes in the United States.

“Project Gunrunner” (A.K.A Fast and Furious) was a project of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Fireworks where basically some “geniuses” high up in ATF (and possibly the DOJ) thought it would be a great idea to sell assault weapons to the violent Mexican drug cartels. Yes, that’s right, the US government decided–in order to fight the Mexican Drug Cartels, we should arm them and let them keep their weapons once they were used in committing crimes .

Those assault weapons ceded to the drug cartels have been used for crimes in Mexico, used to kill a Border Agent named Brian Terry, turned up  at the scenes of violent crimes in Phoenix, and now 11 other violent crimes across the country.
