‘Gunwalker’ suspect gave ATF and border authorities plenty of clues amidst lies
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 19 April, 2012 | David Codrea

From his hospital bed in Birmingham, Ala., Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars has obtained a copy of the Department of Justice Report of Investigation of the incident where an ATF agent let a surveilled suspect with prior arrests go, after giving him a $10 bill with her phone number written on it in exchange for his pledge that he’d lead her to bigger fish.

“During the inspection, a Border Patrol Agent assisting the CBPOs [Customs and Border Protection Officers] performed Treasury Enforcement Communication Systems (TECS) subject queries on the subjects which disclosed CELlS-ACOSTA was under investigation for firearms trafficking,” the ROI detailing events of May 29, 2010 reveals.

It’s significant, because the report was prepared by Special Agent Hope McAllister, reviewed by then-Group VII Supervisor David Voth and then- Phoenix Field Division Special Agent in Charge William Newell, and concerns the border stop of Operation Fast and Furious suspect Manuel Celis-Acosta, who was let go with the stated excuse that he had promised to help identify cartel gun buyers. Over the weekend, Gun Rights Examiner posted a copy of Celis-Acosta’s arrest report by the Phoenix Police Department from the month before, another instance where he was inexplicably released without charges.

The ROI shows Celis-Acosta “recanted some of the details” he gave investigators when asked if he knew about “an AK type high capacity drum magazine loaded with 74 rounds of 7.62 ammunition underneath the spare tire in the truck.” It also shows an affiliation with one CHENDI, legal name Claudio Badilla-Jaimes, a Hispanic male originally from Sonora, Mexico, identified by DEA as a “large scale marijuana and multikilogram cocaine trafficker operating out of the Phoenix metropolitan area,” and per Celis-Acosta, a rich cartel member with law enforcement-type emergency lights on his truck who once chewed out Mexican police

The MSM says that if the Washington post does not say it is a scandal, then it is not a scandal.

The new media is disputing that definition.

The release of Acosta and the $10 bill was mentioned in Pavlich’s book, but this article in the Examiner show’s the actual DOJ document. She obviously was not making it up.

What an atrocity... he watched, then crept up on the suspect and murdered him in cold blood, with no remorse. It's outrageous that something like this could happen in this country !! He ought to be strung up in a tree or sent to the gas chamber !! His heart should be cut out and fed to the wolves !!! Scum !! Trash !! It was a Latino that did this...he should be killed, himself !! Bring Je$$e and Rev Al back.

Huh...? What...? Oh... Damn... Then, forget what I just said. I thought we were talking about Zimmerman, not some Latino gentleman who happened to shoot a Border Patrol agent by mistake. That was simply an error in judgement when he shot that agent in the back. Is not a problem. Go back to sleep.

From his hospital bed in Birmingham, Ala., Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars

Flat on his back with MRSA, Mike is doing more to hold this government to account for their crimes and treason than MILLIONS of so-called journalists in the mainstream media.

...It tells us all we need to know that a severely ill man in chronic pain, trying to recover from life-threatening surgery and its complications, including a massive infection, is doing more from his bed in ICU as he drifts in and out of sleep than most of the major "Authorized Journalist" networks and newspapers combined. Remember that the next time some talking point-parroting flack tries to derail the pursuit of truth with snotty comments about paranoid rightwing conspiracy theories and what we really need to save Mexico is a new “assault weapon” ban.

Amen to that. There is no "American Journalism" anymore. There is no journalistic integrity in this country. The entire media is simply an Obummer Inc cheer leading squadron. A pack of pathetic pretenders. And they are culpable too. They are just as complicit in these murders as the planners and promoters of these atrocities.
