Fast and Furious Describes How DHS Reacts to Weapons Check

Posted by on Feb 15, 2012 at 11:43 am

“When we ran the check on the shotgun, then all of a sudden everyone in federal government became interested — ATF, FBI, Homeland Security, Immigration [ICE] all showed up,” Smith said.

When I came across that line in an article about how the State Department had ordered the release of a Mexican national high-ranking former political figure from custody in Texas it made me wonder just what the hell are they afraid of? Did this gun come from a list maintained of the weapons sold to the Mexican cartels under the Fast and Furious program? Maybe the feds didn’t want too many questions being asked.
Briefly, the story is this. This guy was arrested for embezzling in Mexico. He managed to post bail, get out of prison, and flee to the United States. When the State Department found out he was being held by Texas law enforcement after being pulled over for a traffic violation they ordered his release.
The guy is still on the loose.
Yes folks, we are in the very best of hands. You have to read the whole story to how incompetence at the federal level is not punished but rather it is lauded.

    “how incompetence at the federal level is not punished but rather it is lauded.”

    Who in their right mind believes that incompetence is the fault in evidence? Sarcasm is dead in a world run by brazen criminals.
