Rifle found at El Chapo hideout tied to Fast and Furious
WASHINGTON One of the guns that Mexican officials say was found at the hideout of drug lord Joaquin El Chapo Guzman Loera has been found to be associated with Fast and Furious, a failed gun-walking operation, according to the Justice Department.
The department said in a letter to members of Congress that a .50-caliber rifle that Mexican officials sent for tracing after Guzmans arrest in January has been connected to Fast and Furious.
Officials say the weapon was one of 19 firearms that Mexican authorities said were recovered from the hideout and was the only one determined to be associated with the botched sting operation, in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed gun runners to buy weapons in hopes of tracking them and disrupting gun smuggling rungs.
The rifle was bought in July 2010 in a straw purchase by someone not known to ATF at the time. The buyer was later identified and came under investigation but was never indicted. The weapon is not known to be associated with any other crime, the Justice Department says.

“The rifle was bought in July 2010 in a straw purchase by someone not known to ATF at the time. “
Sure. They have been so cooperative and forthcoming about Fast and Furious so far.
That rifle could even be signed by Eric Holder, the signature and dedication to El Chapo burnt deeply into the the wood, and democrats would still give him a pass for the ‘misunderstanding’.
TREASON - continuous, in-your-face, agenda-driven, agency-abetted, representative-enabled, media-complicit, ongoing...
It’s not their fault. Treason is the only way to overthrow a government from the inside. What other choice do they have ?
Poor stupid Holder should have called Brennan to get the best CIA directions for arming the cartel he favors.
As such, and being organized, it is in effect a conspiracy to deprive Americans of a fundamental Civil Right, performed under color of Law.
All the persons from the DOJ, BATFE and any supporting organizations should be facing charges and Civil Suits.
My suspicion from the beginning, and it is only that, is that F&F was a Hillary plan given to 0bama and carried out by Holder. It just sounds like one of her half-baked malevolent ideas to me.
Until further information is pried loose the only substantive connection I know of is that Hillary was out there publicly promoting the “river of guns to Mexico” theme until this story broke and that all went silent.
0dunga's plot to arm ISIS with American military hardware thus escalating violence to force more MUSLIMS to flee into Europe and the United States..
A tale of two similar plots.
He doesn’t think of anything himself though. Libya was another Hillary crack pot idea. The whole Arab Spring thing was.
I for one am shocked that our government would do something like that. (/sarc)
What a surprise, eh?
I’m shocked that the controlled partisan biased media covers for Obama, while they screw the rest of the USA.
Genius Obama, what happened if i am correct is that the sinalola cartel (that chapo leads) is far more dangerous then los zetas,
Los zetas were so violent that they skinned people alive,cut there hands off and castrated the victims and put the gentials into the palms of the dismember hands of victims, ive seen those pictures and im not posting them.
they were a borderline death cult and because of how insane Zetas was they wiped them self out,
they worpshipped saint morte (saint death) and its members saw glory in going out gun blazing like going into police stations and shoot them up and get killed.
Chapo Cartel is more dangerous because they are more business like and are not in the drug business to die gun blazing, so obama was so smart to arm the cartel that would win the war.
los zetas would have wiped themself out anyway and obama armed the ones that would win anyway , Zetas burned out because almost all its members are dead
Baisicly who are more dangerous, a stupid death cult that losses members faster then they gain or a cartel like chapo which is ruined like a successful fortune 500 company that is international and keeps growing
What ive read about chapo is that hes a bushiness genius and would have made a killing if he had been in wall street
Hang the Treasonous Bastards (Obama and holder).
I have heard that about the Zetas. Thanks for NOT posting those torture photos. Sean Penn may want to employ Secret Service for an extended period of time. I doubt very much if everyone in El Chapo’s gang is ‘cool’ with Sean more or less facilitating Chapo’s rearrest. I’m sure they know where he and his family are at any given moment.
