Second ATF Agent Claims U.S. Funnelling Guns Into Mexico

 

 

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/03/21/eveningnews/main20045609.shtml

 

 

ATF wasn't working alone on the case known as "Fast and Furious." Documents show ATF had conference calls with "DHS" (Homeland Security). "USMS" (U.S. Marshals) and DEA. An "ICE," or Customs agent, was on ATF's Fast and Furious team. They were advised by an "AUSA," or Assistant U.S. Attorney under the Justice Department.

 

 

Jaquez is second sitting ATF agent to come forward and speak out to CBS News on the controversy.

 

Jaquez says one of the most difficult things for him is believing that his own agency inadvertently put innocent lives at risk. Jaquez has family - uncles, aunts, father and sister - living in Mexico. "Any one of us could have been shot with one of those guns

i saw the CBS interviews with the ATF agents who were involved in this shit.

 

so sad, so deplorable.

i can only imagine how it felt for them to have to watch these guys drive back to mexico, armed to the teeth. it's been shown that at least one of those weapons was used to kill an ATF agent

 

why even have the agency there if they aren't going to do shit.

:(

ATF acting director may resign over Fast and Furious program

Operation Fast and Furious was "a colossal failure of leadership," Peter Forcelli, a supervisor at the bureau's Phoenix field office, said recently.

 

one of the comments:

I do not understand why this does not get more media coverage. It is amazing that the Casey Anthony trail gets an untold amount of attention but this barely passes as news. What ever happened to journalism?

THis is old but relevant to how much affect we have in mexico:

 

Mar 18, 2010: Wachovia Settles Money Laundering Case.

 

Whats interesting is that they were find $160 million, but conflicting reports say that they laundered somewhere between $100 million and $420 Billion.

 

Sort of a difference there.

 

 

 

I've been seeing a number of similarities between Narcos and the Taliban. Neither are roaming hordes of militia striking out against civilians and the military, they are Mafia families like the ones that helped found this country of ours. They move into towns and begin giving the towns reasons to support them: Jobs--making more money than they could have ever made--cash crops, protection from gangs and crooked cops, etc. If the military blows up someone's house or kills their kid they give them money to rebuild. They provide Townsmen more stability than the government. Then the military moves into those towns, parades around with a show of force, and if the town isn't near a major road/trade route they leave after only a couple weeks.

 

 

I'm not supporting narcos, just saying it's not an easy war to win.

"Foreign Policy: Legalization Won't Make it Better"

 

Fact is Narcos like the Zetas are making billions by hijacking oil trucks and selling billions of dollars of oil to American corporations, and they know it too.

Remember back in April when they raided that Sinaloa enforcer's house in Ciudad Juarez and found 40 F&F weapons? Of course you don't because it wasn't reported in America until yesterday. Chihuahua state Gov. Cesar Duarte said at the time "We have seized the most important cache of weapons in the history of Ciudad Juarez"... I assume he's since been assasinated.
