The ATF gunrunner scandal, even worse than first thought
Posted by Staff
A few weeks ago we brought you a story from Sharyl Attkisson who was reporting on a scandal inside the ATF concerning the agency allowing guns to walk across the border. Soon the worst fears of many ATF agents were realized when Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered by a Mexican drug gang member using one of the guns the ATF let walk. It turns out that the ATF was not the only agency that knew about this “gun walking” policy. The DEA, ICE, Homeland Security, and an Assistant United States Attorney all had knowledge that ATF superiors were instructing agents on the ground to allow guns to flow into Mexico in the hopes they would be able to catch larger targets. Rene Jaquez, an ATF special agent, spoke out about what he sees as some of the darkest days in the history of the ATF.

If it were not for Sharyl Attkisson and a few brave ATF agents, would we even know this is happening? Probably not, so thank God they are alerting us to this story. Facebook iconFacebook Fark iconFark Furl iconFurl
