Well, it depends upon what the goal of this action was.
If it was to follow guns and bust the gun runners, they failed.
If it was to add some artificial credence to their asinine assertion that the drug cartels got 90% of their guns from the U.S., they failed. It just took a while for the truth to out. Amazing this is from CBS.
“If it was to follow guns and bust the gun runners, they failed.”
I don’t see how allowing the guns into Mexico, then waiting to see if they turn up a crime scenes, could ever reasonably be expected to “bust the gun runners”. I am willing to be convinced, though. Please explain just how this would work?
