Fast and Furious Scandal Continues to do a Great Job

The operation Fast and Furious scandal continues to do a great job of reducing population.  Fast and Furious was the U.S. Department of Justice program that gave guns to Mexican drug dealers in a failed attempt to trace said dealers.  Result: no drug dealers caught, many more guns in Mexico.  Perhaps this is the Obama administration’s approach to U.S. gun control: export the guns to other countries.  Oh, wait, I forgot the <sarcasm> tag.

Now comes the latest travesty, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times.  From their March 19 story:

“Federal agents stopped the main target of the ill-fated Operation Fast and Furious in May 2010. After they questioned him, he disappeared back into Mexico, and the program went on to spiral out of control.

Detained for questioning that day in May 2010, Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta described to agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosiveshis close association with a top Mexican drug cartel member, according to documents obtained this weekend by the Times/Tribune Washington Bureau.

The top Fast and Furious investigator, Special Agent Hope MacAllister, scribbled her phone number on a $10 bill after he pledged to cooperate and keep in touch with investigators.

Then Celis-Acosta disappeared into Mexico. He never called.”

What a surprise.  We applaud the U.S. Department of Justice and Attorney General Eric Holder for their ongoing contributions to population reduction.
