Bloodier and bloodier it gets.
America, please pay attention. This is the deadliest, most dangerous scandal of the scandal-plagued Obama administration. GOP investigators and House and Senate watchdogs are doing all they can. Whistleblowers inside ATF and gun shop dealers across the country have risked their lives and livelihoods to tell the truth. They need your attention, support, and outrage to force real accountability — not Kabuki shuffles — on the White House.
Read, share, act. Via CBS News:
Weapons linked to ATF’s controversial “Fast and Furious” operation have been tied to at least eight violent crimes in Mexico including three murders, four kidnappings and an attempted homicide.
According to a letter from U.S. Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the disclosed incidents may be only a partial list of violent crimes linked to Fast and Furious weapons because “ATF has not conducted a comprehensive independent investigation.”
When added to the guns found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in the U.S., the newly-revealed murders in Mexico bring the total number of deaths linked to Fast and Furious to four.
According to the Justice Department letter:
One AK-47 type assault rifle purchased by a Fast and Furious suspect was recovered Nov. 14, 2009 in Atoyac de Alvarez, Mexico after the Mexican military rescued a kidnap victim.
On July 1, 2010, two AK-47 type assault rifles purchased by Fast and Furious suspects were recovered in Sonora, Mexico after a shootout between cartels. Two murders were reported in the incident using the weapons.
Pay attention. The key phrase in the report is “AT LEAST.”
How much higher does the death toll need to reach before someone, anyone, gets FIRED?
