Two of the weapons involved in a drug cartel gunfight last month in Sinaloa, Mexico, that killed five people, including two soldiers and a young beauty queen, have been traced back to the U.S. – one lost during the ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious, the other originally purchased by a supervisory ATF agent who helped oversee the botched gun-tracking operation.

he FALSIFIED his address on a FEDERAL DOCUMENT?
That is a FELONY.
the other originally purchased by a supervisory ATF agent who helped oversee the botched gun-tracking operation.
Now just how did that turn up at a crime scene?
Did he “lose” it? Give it to some one, an informant?
Isn’t that a straw purchase or was it a “gift”?
Nobody anywhere in law enforcement procures contraband and then puts it in play without a plan to recover it. We don't have a gunshow loophole, we have an ATF loophole.
Perhaps boner could wipe his eyes and see this glaring cluster and do his job. Between his absolute ignorance and nearly every elected official stupidity this country is just about toast.
Boehner has appointed the right man (Issa) to go after information and if Issa had not been pursuing this the topic would be long gone.
The Speaker should focus his concentration right now on the issue at hand which is the fiscal cliff issue. I understand the F&F is a very important issue (on which Issa has done a good job) but so is Benghazi, the recent shootings, tax issues, health issue, defense, welfare, etc. etc.
Richard A. Serrano is still covering F & F too.
Serrano is a brave soul. He has been VERY good on this.
Romney and the GOP really goofed by not running endless ads on Hispanic stations attacking Obama on fast & furious and running ads in his own words how he made the Mexican maid cry.
Answer me that Mr Time man of the year !
This was all about making dirty money from top to bottom.
He claims he sold it on the internet !
Boner should tell 0bama he will get serious about the cliff and gun control when 0bama gets serious about testimony about f & f, and benghazi. make that a condition, and talk about the deaths and why we can’t get to the bottom of it. ask 0bama what all that hollow nosed ammunition, and those 2,500 assault vehicles are for. never give an inch. talk about it everyday.
“How many innocent children in Mexico were killed by the 2500 ASSAULT weapons this illegal program sent into Mexico ?
Answer me that Mr Time man of the year !”
Lots of people and children killed in Mexico over Fast and Furious. The media is very silent about it unlike their coverage of happened in Connecticut.
That should be an easy claim to test. Nothing on the internet ever truely goes away.
Felony Schmelony.. 0bama is the Teflon regime. Besides, Fast & Furious II is underway.. This time, domestically.
Ban Obama and Holder!!!
Ted Kennedy killed more people with his car than you have with your gun.
Look, another "systemic problem" just like Benghazi!
Quick, fire some low-level employees and absolve Obama and Holder of any responsibility.
It's good to be King.
“Boner should tell 0bama he will get serious about the cliff and gun control when 0bama gets serious about testimony about f & f, and benghazi. make that a condition, and talk about the deaths and why we cant get to the bottom of it.”
Good idea. And he should tell him that via one of the many news conferences he’s had lately. For all to hear.
“...he FALSIFIED his address on a FEDERAL DOCUMENT?
That is a FELONY....”
Not for him, evidently.
For you and I, yeah, absolutely.
