Skip to comments.Agent: I was ordered to let U.S. guns into Mexico [March 3, 2011]

An Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms senior agent assigned to the Phoenix office in 2010, Dodson's job is to stop gun trafficking across the border. Instead, he says he was ordered to sit by and watch it happen.
Dodson's bosses say that never happened. Now, he's risking his job to go public.
Agent Dodson and other sources say the gun walking strategy was approved all the way up to the Justice Department. The idea was to see where the guns ended up, build a big case and take down a cartel. And it was all kept secret from Mexico.
ATF named the case "Fast and Furious."
Surveillance video obtained by CBS News shows suspected drug cartel suppliers carrying boxes of weapons to their cars at a Phoenix gun shop. The long boxes shown in the video being loaded in were AK-47-type assault rifles.
So it turns out ATF not only allowed it - they videotaped it.

That would be Holder-colored nackground checks...
Dang, I hate to say it but I guess for once king hussein didn’t lie about the US being responsible for the violence in meh-ico. As long as the feds are letting guns walk there will be an issue. Did they stop doing that? Or is it still an “ongoing investigation/sting operation”.
“The idea was to see where the guns ended up, build a big case and take down a cartel.”
No, the idea was to load up Mexico with guns that originated in the US so that Obastard could use it as an excuse for tighter gun control.

That was a long time ago.
But, there’s a twist in the motive here. Holder wanted to set the stage for GOING AFTER GUN SELLERS/FFL’s for selling guns to criminals. I believe that was Holder’s ultimate objective.
This disgusting and corrupt regime has a hell of a lot to answer for.
The thing that REALLY ticks me off about this Fast and Furious deal is that, the Kenyan and Holder set up the Fast and Furious fiasco to set the stage for exactly what the Kenyan did in Mexico the other day. Blame all of the killings in Mexico on OUR Second Amendment. This whole regime is hateful and despicable. Very anti-American. So how did America get this point? Politicians offering free handouts for votes.
You got that right.
Now the liar in chief goes to Mexico and tell them we are responsible for the gun in their country, but he doesn’t add that he sent them there.
Agree. This story needs to go absolutely viral.
Yes, the published date is wrong on the FR post. It was dated May 3rd not the date on the article which was Mar. 3rd.
But it does fit nicely with the other Obozo administration criminal actions in Benghazi.
Unfortunately Mexico knew damn well what was going on because it fit their goals as well.
Brian Terry was murdered a long time ago. What difference does it make?
Most Americans think “Fast and Furious” was the name of an old Clint Eastwood spaghetti western.
This is orders-of-magnitude worse than Watergate.
