Obama ATF ACTUALLY FACILITATED Guns Going To Violent Mexican Drug Gangs!!!

This is just beyond amazing.  The Obama administration couldn’t be more despicable or more incompetent.

From CBS:

Gunrunning scandal uncovered at the ATF
Program aimed at stopping the flow of weapons from the US to Mexico may have allegedly had the opposite effect
By Sharyl Attkisson

(CBSNews)  WASHINGTON – Keeping American weapons from getting into the hands of Mexican gangs is the goal of a program called “Project Gunrunner.” But critics say it’s doing exactly the opposite. CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports on what she found.

December 14, 2010. The place: a dangerous smuggling route in Arizona not far from the border. A special tactical border squad was on patrol when gunfire broke out and agent Brian Terry was killed.

Kent, Brian’s brother, said “he was my only brother. That was the only brother I had. I’m lost.”

The assault rifles found at the murder were traced back to a U.S. gun shop. Where they came from and how they got there is a scandal so large, some insiders say it surpasses the shoot-out at Ruby Ridge and the deadly siege at Waco.

To understand why, it helps to know something about “Project Gunrunner” an operation run by the ATF the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

Read the indictment

“Project Gunrunner” deployed new teams of agents to the southwest border. The idea: to stop the flow of weapons from the US to Mexico’s drug cartels. But in practice, sources tell CBS News, ATF’s actions had the opposite result: they allegedly facilitated the delivery of thousands of guns into criminal hands.

CBS News wanted to ask ATF officials about the case, but they wouldn’t agree to an interview. We were able to speak to six veteran ATF agents and executives involved. They don’t want to be quoted by name for fear of retaliation. These are their allegations.

In late 2009, ATF was alerted to suspicious buys at seven gun shops in the Phoenix area. Suspicious because the buyers paid cash, sometimes brought in paper bags. And they purchased classic “weapons of choice” used by Mexican drug traffickers – semi-automatic versions of military type rifles and pistols.

Sources tell CBS News several gun shops wanted to stop the questionable sales, but ATF encouraged them to continue.

Jaime Avila was one of the suspicious buyers. ATF put him in its suspect database in January of 2010. For the next year, ATF watched as Avila and other suspects bought huge quantities of weapons supposedly for “personal use.” They included 575 AK-47 type semi-automatic rifles.

ATF managers allegedly made a controversial decision: allow most of the weapons on the streets. The idea, they said, was to gather intelligence and see where the guns ended up. Insiders say it’s a dangerous tactic called letting the guns, “walk.”

One agent called the strategy “insane.” Another said: “We were fully aware the guns would probably be moved across the border to drug cartels where they could be used to kill.”

On the phone, one Project Gunrunner source (who didn’t want to be identified) told us just how many guns flooded the black market under ATF’s watchful eye. “The numbers are over 2,500 on that case by the way. That’s how many guns were sold – including some 50-calibers they let walk.”

50-caliber weapons are fearsome. For months, ATF agents followed 50-caliber Barrett rifles and other guns believed headed for the Mexican border, but were ordered to let them go. One distraught agent was often overheard on ATF radios begging and pleading to be allowed to intercept transports. The answer: “Negative. Stand down.”

CBS News has been told at least 11 ATF agents and senior managers voiced fierce opposition to the strategy. “It got ugly…” said one. There was “screaming and yelling” says another. A third warned: “this is crazy, somebody is gonna to get killed.”

Sure enough, the weapons soon began surfacing at crime scenes in Mexico – dozens of them sources say – including shootouts with government officials.

One agent argued with a superior asking, “are you prepared to go to the funeral of a federal officer killed with one of these guns?” Another said every time there was a shooting near the border, “we would all hold our breath hoping it wasn’t one of ‘our’ guns.”

Then, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. The serial numbers on the two assault rifles found at the scene matched two rifles ATF watched Jaime Avila buy in Phoenix nearly a year before. Officials won’t answer whether the bullet that killed Terry came from one of those rifles. But the nightmare had come true: “walked” guns turned up at a federal agent’s murder.

“You feel like s***. You feel for the parents,” one ATF veteran told us.

Hours after Agent Terry was gunned down, ATF finally arrested Avila. They’ve since indicted 34 suspected gunrunners in the same group. But the indictment makes no mention of Terry’s murder, and no one is charged in his death.

Kent Terry said of his brother, “He’d want them to tell the truth. That’s one thing my brother didn’t like was a liar. And that’s what he’d want. He’d want the truth.

In a letter, the Justice Department which oversees ATF says the agency has never knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to suspected gunrunners.

You want the truth?  The truth is that when you allow liberals to run any thing they will run it like the moral idiots they are.

This is the worst and most breathtakingly incompetent disaster since Ruby Ridge and Waco, we are told by CBS.  And I am here to point out that it is absolutely no coincidence whatsoever that all three of these beyond godawful disgraces of justice occurred under the leadership of DEMOCRATS.  Bill Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno were our “Dear Leaders” for the destructions of justice at Ruby Ridge and Waco.

the problem, as always, isn’t our laws.  The problem is that we have corrupt and incompetent liberals “enforcing” our laws.

And Democrats are doing the same disgusting job running our economy as they are running our justice.  If the media wasn’t biased and frankly immoral, Democrats wouldn’t be able to get elected to sweep the streets after the horses and the elephants went by in the parade.

That said, I’m surprised and gladdened that CBS pointed out just how awful this revelation truly is.  Somebody actually finally reported the facts in their historical context.  You sure don’t see that very often these days.

You want the truth?  The truth is that Attorney General Holder needs to resign in disgrace.  This pile of slime has already long-since demonstrated that he has no interest in justice.  And that was before he came out and said he woun’t be defending the law of the land, passed by the Congress of the United States and signed by President Clinton.

You want the truth?  The truth is that every single one of these government unionized ATF bureaucrats needs to do hard time in prison with the same sorts of murderous thugs they actually helped arm.

There are obviously some good agents at the ATF.  But as the above article demonstrates, good can do little when evil runs the show.  And evil is running the show in the Obama administration.

I’m sorry.  As I think of Barack Obama and Eric Holder giving the drug gangs the guns that were used to murder Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, I’ve got to go throw up.

Here are some other things that agents are warning us about that our “dear leaders” won’t pay attention to until after it’s too late:

EXCLUSIVE: A book celebrating suicide bombers has been found in the Arizona desert just north of the U.S.- Mexican border, authorities tell Fox News.

The book, “In Memory of Our Martyrs,” was spotted Tuesday by a U.S. Border Patrol agent out of the Casa Grande substation who was patrolling a route known for smuggling illegal immigrants and drugs.

And then there’s this bit about agents warning us of radioactive dirty bombs coming into our ports:

But don’t worry.  Nothing bad can ever go wrong.  Our president is a messiah!

    Something I didn’t say in that article was, “Remember how Obama and Hillary Clinton used the allegation that American guns were being used in Mexican gang violence to justify limiting our 2nd Amendment rights and call for more government regulation over those 2nd Amendment rights?”

    Now we find out that it was Obama’s damn government and his damn regulations that RESULTED in these guns going to Mexican gangs. And now those Mexican gangs have murdered an American agent with those guns.

  3. HL Says:

    I remember that fact well, Michael. We need to cling to out Lord, our Bibles and our guns more than ever with these LYING HYPOCRITICAL TYRANTS IN POWER.

    My heart goes out to the American agents loved ones.

    Thank you for continuing to write the truth the msm refuses to report. It is overwhelming, frightening and gut wrenching to face but it is reality, I know our Lord has a plan and my trust is in Him. He has never failed me.

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    And He never will.

    We will never know why many things happen this side of eternity; but we DO know that 1) the God who knows the end from the beginning told us about the last days; and 2) that God is in control and working in the world toward a magnificent future in Christ and through Christ.

    Hopefully people will take the time and fit all the pieces together. Start with learning about the bilderburg attendees. This story will fit right in with their end game.Or even better watch the movie END GAME free on you tube. check out the evil running the world. using our young military personel to carry out their evil agenda under the false pretense of liberty

  6. Michael Eden Says:

    Do you get all of your political beliefs from Hollywood movies, linko???

    Bilderberg was started by a Polish leader in the 1950s who saw growing anti-Americanism being used by the Soviet Union to spread communism. At the time Bilderberg was started, the constant threat of Soviet intervention kept unwilling Poland a compliant member of the Warsaw Pact. But some people dreamed of being free of what is arguably the most evil regime in human history. If you like communism, you don’t like the Bilderberg conference.

  7. A Big Boy Says:

    In some of your other posts, you lauded the CIA with much praise. So, why does a different government bureaucracy get so much flak for practicing a fairly similar practice? I mean, I’m sure you remember all the CIA drug runs, and the entire Contra affair, right?

  8. Michael Eden Says:

    I’ll answer your question, but first, how about if you cite the articles and the quotes where I “lauded the CIA with much praise,” because I can’t say I recall them.

    If you think I should defend my own words, you should at LEAST have the courtesy of pointing out what my words were. Because as it is, you’re calling me out as a hypocrite without a shred of evidence beyond your accusation. Which is pretty nasty, I’d say.

    I think that there are some GREAT CIA personnel and projects. And I think there are some godawful horrible CIA personnel and projects. I don’t believe that I have ever said anything that would give anyone warrent to claim that I have given a blanket endorsement to the CIA or an assertion that everything they’ve ever done they’ve done right and for the right motives. And I challenge you to show otherwise.

    Then there’s another little faux pas in your thinking: you ask, “So, why does a different government bureaucracy get so much flak for practicing a fairly similar practice?” Okay, fine. So you support the White House – and better yet, how about the Republican Party – in doing sneaky nasty things. You support Watergate, where Nixon’s “plumbers” went to work. Not to mention KGB-style domestic spying and stuff like that. Because clearly that’s “a fairly similar practice,” right???

    And maybe you can quote the article and the passage where I said, “Hey, that CIA drug running and that whole Iran Contra thing is great. We should do a lot more of that sort of stuff”???

    I’ll be waiting while you peruse the Michael Eden library for your smoking gun that shows me up for being the hypocrite you try to claim I am.

  9. Adell Says:

    I do know that the Bible says to pray for our leaders and all I ever hear from Christians like you are hate. I never see support or prayers or respect. YOU types of Christians scare me. I feel there is more to the story. There always is. I love the Lord Jesus Christ and I am ashamed to be placed in the same category as people like you and your followers. PRAY for OUR Leaders.

  10. Michael Eden Says:


    I am frankly amazed. Apparently we should be “praying” that our leaders sell more guns to Mexican drug cartels so they can use those guns to murder our agents who are trying to stop this wave of evil. Simply astonishing.

    Even more has come out about this “Project Gunrunner” that I write about. And it is damning.


    And you attack me for writing about it, do you, Adell?

    I don’t doubt for a single nano-second that you are a complete hypocrite. When George Bush was president, you were one of those who couldn’t say enough terrible things about Bush. I have personally encountered your kind so many times it makes me want to throw up. I have personally heard people who spewed venom at Bush, only to turn around and loudly denounce me for criticizing the president now. It’s like you people believe hypocrisy is a virtue.

    You are just one more rabid liberal attacking me under a false guise.

    You attack me for not praying for our leaders. But where have I EVER said don’t pray for our leaders? You attack me falsely. The only question is, “Pray WHAT for our leaders?” Pray that they continue in wickedness? Pray for more dead babies? Pray for policies that bring about the assured destruction of what has been the most Christian nation on earth? Pray for the policies that will result in the coming of the Antichrist/beast? That may be YOUR prayer, but it is hardly mine.

    If you were a German in the 1930s/1940s, I wonder how you would pray for Adolf Hitler (“Dear Lord, please bless my Fuehrer’s plan to keep murdering Jews.”). If you were Chinese during the time of Mao’s Great Leap Forward, I wonder how you would pray for Mao Tse Tung (“Dear Lord, please let another thirty million Chinese perish from starvation.”). I could go on with Stalin, and Pol Pot, and Kim Jong Il, etc. But I think you get the point: Only a genuine moral idiot would interpret “pray for our leaders” the way you do.

    You tell me what you claim to know about Christians like me, Adell? I also happen to know something about your ilk. know that you and yours have championed the murders of 53 million innocent human beings since 1973. And I know that one day you and yours will stand before a just and holy God and learn that there is something in the universe called “divine wrath.”

    You don’t know Jesus at all, and it is seriously long past time you bothered to learn about Him. Jesus spoke more about hell than anyone else in the Bible.

    I know that the Bible warns about a very real coming wrath. I know that the Bible prophesies in Revelation 14:14-20 that a time of incredible judgment is coming for the wickedness you don’t care about:

    (Vs 14) Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand…. (vs 16) Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped… (Vs 19) So the angel swung His sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God. (Vs 20) And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horse’s bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles.”

    – and I know the Bible teaches that when Jesus returns there will be wrath piled on top of wrath:

    “And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.” — Revelation 19:19-21

    You’re ashamed of me, are you? Actually, I’m ashamed of liberal “Christians” like you who have a Barney the Dinosaur version of Jesus instead of anything that is worth anything.

    By standing up to our leaders I’m the sort of Christian that you’re ashamed of? That’s really sad: I think of Jesus confronting the leaders of His day and asking them, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” (Matthew 3:7). That nasty Jesus. Hostile and hateful, I know. And the Old Testament is filled with prophets who confronted terrible leaders and told them what was coming.

    You’re not just ashamed of me; you’re ashamed of Jesus.

    And let me quote one more teaching of Jesus about such shame:

    “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” — Mark 8:38

    Which brings us right back to what is about to happen which I cited from Revelation. And about the need to stand up as a saint of God in an adulterous and sinful generation that makes even the one in Jesus’ day appear righteous by comparison.

    You need to get your heart right with God and finally take a stand for righteousness. Because that sickle will be swinging for you soon.

    Obama and Eric Holder – ‘liberals ‘ ? Selling guns to

    drug cartels members sounds more like treason to me .

    Dear Lord Jesus – Help and defend us .

  12. Michael Eden Says:

    I have understood that liberals were traitors ever since I heard them demonize George Bush and the Iraq War while our soldiers were in the field fighting.

    THIS was what these traitorous vermin had said previously:


    So Democrats being traitors is nothing new. But THIS is sure a new way for Democrats to show that they are traitors as they descend America into hell.
