Michelle Malkin demonstrates the link between Obama’s “stimulus” package and “Project Gunrunner”. All that money, and all that anti-gun fervor… It was just a disaster waiting to happen.
Buried in Barack Obama’s failed trillion-dollar stimulus program was a $10 million bloody border racket that has now cost American lives. This goes far beyond the usual waste, fraud and abuse underwritten by progressive profligacy. It’s bloodstained government malfeasance overseen by anti-gun ideologues — and now anti-gun ideologue Attorney General Eric Holder will “investigate.”
Welcome to Project Gunrunner. Prepare for another Justice Department whitewash.
Can there be any doubt now that “Project Gunrunner” was nothing more than a scheme to generate support for more gun control in the US? Every day brings out new information about this corrupt operation. Wikileaks has now released US State Department cables showing that Hillary Clinton’s minions know that the weaponry used by Mexican drug gangs comes across that nation’s Southern border. One memo recounts a visit to the Guatemalan border: “One of the most memorable images of the day was the steady flow of rafts transporting people and goods across the river illegally within sight of the legal border crossing.” Another traces grenades used in several attacks. Some of these were American made devices smuggled into Mexico from El Salvador. Still others were of South Korean origin. Note that none were sold by Wal-Mart or Cabela’s! Also note that Hillary Clinton is one who cannot resist the allure of the “90% Myth”; the claim nine gun out of ten used in Mexico’s drug wars come from the US. Dig deeper and one sees that the 90% is more like 10%. What it would be without the ATF smuggling guns into Mexico has yet to be calculated.
