The Department of Justice under Eric Holder and the ATF flooded Mexico with assault weapons in a secret project called “Operation Gunrunner” as well as an offshoot operation called “Fast and Furious“. This program was an ill fated attempt to track the weapons but they got out of control and fell into the hands of drug cartels. Many of these weapons are now being used against border control and anti drug agents. This scandal will go full broil when the Dept of Justice explains themselves in upcoming Congressional hearings. DOJ AND ATF HAVE KNOWINGLY FLOODED MEXICO WITH ASSAULT WEAPONS. It is also reported that Eric Holder is attempting to block the investigation into this matter.
All major news media are now reporting this story. This is real it is not from any right-wing conspiracy blogs but now reported by the main-stream media.
Earlier this month, documents revealed by Congressional investigators showed that under the Gunrunner operation the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives let high-powered weapons cross the U.S./Mexico border. The sting was supposed to trace weapons and lead to the prosecution of illegal drug sellers, but, as The Los Angeles Times reported, “three guns sold to suspects who were part of Project Gunrunner have since turned up at the scenes of the deaths of two U.S. agents — in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi and near the Mexican border in Arizona.”

In this non-embeddable Youtube Video Obama denies neither he nor Eric Holder authorized or even knew about the these operations. Obama was speaking to Univision but Obama’s denial is not credible. Either Obama and Eric Holder knew about it and did nothing or actually authorized it or they are completely incompetent.
