Posted on 01/13/2014 4:03:40 PM PST by Para-Ord.45
The DEA agents met with members of the cartel in Mexico to obtain information about their rivals and simultaneously built a network of informants who sign drug cooperation agreements, subject to results, to enable them to obtain future benefits, including cancellation of charges in the U.S.," reports El Universal
Operation Fast and Furious was part of an agreement to finance and arm the cartel in exchange for information used to take down its rivals. (If true, that re-raises the issue regarding what Attorney General Eric Holder knew about the gun-running arrangements.)

Obama/Soetoro & Holder KNEW and ordered it ?
Lots of damning stuff popping up while the media waves the Chris Christie flag.
Thank you. This is a question that occurred to me recently, that if it was true that we were working with one of the cartels, giving them immunity in exchange for information on their rivals, and if it was true that we were running guns to “the cartel” as a supposed “investigation” that never achieved even one arrest...
Was the cartel we immunized the same cartel we armed?
And now it appears that the answer is “yes”.
It seems that the way to run drugs and guns with impunity is to call it an “investigation”. That way if investigators from rival law enforcement agencies run across it, you just tell them to back off, its federal. Back off, this is “deep cover” stuff. And that’s “billions” of dollars, with a “b”.
The District of Criminals just doing the job Americans won’t do.
What was the “benefit” for the USA?
I doubt very much that the Ones administration consulted them on this operation.
Probably MS-13 info, people, etc?
The cartel has always been run by the us government..now they are consolidating for max profit. If folks think the drugs are coming in on the backs of somd poor mexican, think agai n, oil tankers full daily to meet the supply needs..
This brings to mind the story of General Gutierrez Rebollo, who gained fame for leading a bloody war against the Mexican cartels and was briefly appointed as Mexico’s drug czar based on his reputation.
And in fact he did lead a bloody war against the cartels. On behalf of another cartel. He spent the rest of his life in prison, just died a few days ago.
I don’t see why one utterly corrupt organization shouldn’t make a deal with another utterly corrupt organization to further their mutual utter corruption.
To even think of prohibiting such or even expecting that such should not occur seems utterly ridonkulous ;/
If the purpose of the War On Drugs is to reduce the supply of illicit drugs in the US how does giving free reign to one drug cartel to import drugs cut the supply?
Wow. The Democrats must have been fueling their campaigns with drug money from Mexico.
Filling up the prisons with a labor force composed of middlemen dealers that the government essentially supplied the drugs to in order to bust them...
This just confirms that we are a narco-terrorist state.
Cat’s out of the ol’ bag.
We have had a war on drugs for almost 43 years.
When do we declare victory and go home?
Obviously, a lot of people are profiting handsomely in this so-called “war”, including a lot of people in DC.
Better question: What was the "benefit" for the Democrats? Clue: The drug cartels also control the "coyotes" that ferry illegals across the border.
>> Lots of damning stuff popping up while the media waves the Chris Christie flag.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
Of course, my question is, then why is this guy on trial? What happened to his immunity?
