Not to mention, they sold the guns at a huge financial loss. Didn't even TRY to get what they paid for them.
So, let's see:
Sold guns that could not be tracked (as no tracking system was EVER put in place - not on the guns and not even at some ' off-site headquarters')
Bought at one price, sold at half of what was paid. (can't just 'give' them away, the cartel may think something's up)
Many whistleblowers saying the same thing, that these questions and many more were brought up over and over, but were all told to basically 'do what
you're told and look the other way'.
The Administration's reps said this was to 'track the guns back into Mexico;, but (while no tracking system, not even a single person following them)
the Mexican government was never informed? How could this be pulled off, without notifying the Mexican Government, unless the US goverment (giving
benefit of the doubt as to the excuse given) was planning to (illegally) go into Mexico to bust the cartels, or (illegally) track the cartels across
the border. Yeah, right! Definately not good for allied relationship.
Supposedly, emails have been turned over to the congressional investigation team, that will show/prove ties to the administration or cetain people in
the White House. I can't wait to see those!
I got it, I got it!!!! Here's the real
The guns were sold to evil cartel guys, that were promised a bounty by the US administration to take out the other evil guy (Osama Bin Laden). Once
the whole story is allowed to be told, they'll all (Holder, Obama's administration) be vindicated. We'll all realize their heroism Now I get it. Why
else do you think OBL just happened to be killed, the very weekend that Holder was being questioned? They had to hurry up the mission, since Holder's
been 'called out'. Of course! Totally makes sense now. Holder can now claim he had to lie and say he knew nothing of this and it's the first he's
heard anything about F&F. It's all due to 'National Security" on a mission that was taking place, right at that time. How could he be expected tell
story to congress? That, could have foiled the whole operation.
Ah, I'm so glad to have finally figured this all out. I feel so much better. Go Obama! Go Holder! Yeah!
