What Is Project Gunrunner?
Two weeks ago SHN reported, ‘Under US Government surveillance and supervision, American gun store owners along the US-Mexico border are ordered to make gun sales to ‘unknown’ buyers who are then permitted to take ‘thousands and thousands’ of guns across the border – openly – and put them in the hands of Mexico’s drug cartel.
From Lou Dobbs’ interview with Wayne LaPierre of the NRA, ‘The largest gunrunner to the Mexican drug cartels is our government under this administration.’ [...] ‘You have to assume that the White House is in bed with the justice department on this cover-up.’
So. Here we have a taxpayer funded program that takes advantage of open borders to supply Mexico’s drug cartel with American weapons – all of which Barack Obama and Eric Holder have repeatedly claimed they know nothing about…
DOJ Authorized Wiretap In ATF ‘Fast And Furious’
(CBS News) Congressional investigators have just released documents in the so-called gunwalking scandal at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). This in advance of a Senate hearing in which Attorney General Eric Holder will testify.
One document indicates a Holder Asst. Attorney General, Lanny Breuer, authorized a wiretap in the controversial gun trafficking case headquartered in Phoenix. In that case, called “Fast and Furious,” multiple sources say ATF allowed thousands of guns to hit the streets, destined for Mexican drug cartels.
Yesterday, at a House hearing, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) asked
Holder who authorized Fast and Furious. President Obama has previously said neither he nor Holder authorized the operation.
“What about the Asst. Attorney General of the Criminal Division, Lanny Breuer? Did he authorize it?” Issa asked Holder.
“I’m not sure,” answered Holder.
Another newly-released document is an ATF Briefing Paper dated Jan. 8, 2010, just four months into Fast and Furious – which continued for over a year. It indicates that ATF knew early on that so-called “straw purchasers” who bought guns for personal use were illegally transferring them to third parties, and that some of the guns were already showing up in Mexico.
Critics say this counters claims of ATF and Dept. of Justice officials who have recently argued nobody was intentionally letting guns “walk,” that there was simply no evidence to stop people who legally purchased guns.
The Briefing Paper says more gun purchases were to be allowed and “monitored.”
