You’ve probably heard the news that when Mexican authorities raided the hideout of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, the head of the murderous Sinaloa drug cartel, on Jan. 8, they recovered a .50-caliber Barrett rifle that was trafficked through the ATF’s disastrous “Fast and Furious” debacle.
What you may not know, but probably suspected, is that the more information that surfaces surrounding Fast and Furious, the more it appears that the Obama administration deliberately helped traffic guns from the United States to the highest levels of the most ruthless and deadly drug cartels in Mexico for no other reason than to support the absurd claim—asserted by everyone from Barack Obama to his attorney general, Eric Holder, to his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton—that 90 percent of the guns used in crimes in Mexico originated in the U.S., and that imposing more gun control upon law-abiding Americans would somehow control international criminal networks with billions of dollars at their fingertips.
When you look at the evidence in aggregate, no other explanation seems possible, let alone plausible. Think about it.
To justify Fast and Furious, Obama’s ATF claimed, in effect, that they were allowing thousands of guns to “walk” across the U.S.-Mexico border to try to identify criminal networks operating in the two countries.
But if that’s the case, then why did they tell investigators to stand down when they attempted to track the guns after they crossed the border?
Why did they allow some 1,400 out of at least 2,000 firearms trafficked through Fast and Furious to simply fade into the sunset after they were smuggled into Mexico?
What did they expect to happen?
