The December 2010 murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry exposed the bungled “Fast and Furious” investigation, in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed criminals to buy guns with the intention of tracking the weapons.
But the agency lost most of the guns, including two that were found at the scene of Terry’s death in southern Arizona. The U.S. government has heavily pursued prosecution of the men involved in the killing.
Mexico says Mexican drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking.
Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office said Sunday it has lodged weapons trafficking charges against seven people in the more-than-decade-old case, including the country’s former top police official, Genaro Garcia Luna, and former durg lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Ah yes, the 90% lie perpetrated by Eric Holder and Barry O-Zero. Another one for the memory hole....
So one Cartel is using the current government to take out its competition.

Meanwhile their co-conspirators in El Norte get off scot-free.

Eric Holder, on Telmundo, spoke of “Fast and Furious” in Spanish a year earlier than the date he gave Congress in his testimony.
“The U.S. government has heavily pursued prosecution of the men involved in the killing.”
Yeah. Sure. Whatever. It always looked to me like Holder, et al were playing ‘cover our butts’ more than anything.
A lunch buddy of mine to this day believes that Fast and Furious was made up by Fox News.
ATF Special Agent John Dodson is a national hero who in 2011 blew the whistle on Operation Fast and Furious, the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate’s gun-running operation to drug cartels..
Eric Holder used his wife’s email account to try to hide the truth /commit treason.. Then, she got an executive privilege waiver from the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
Even Mexico goes after it’s corrupt officials. We do nothing and are at least as corrupt.
Mexico should have the nads to file charges against our trash
Over 2,000 weapons involved, more then 300 people murdered including 16 teenagers at a birthday party.
obama and biden and all involved should have been in jail for mass murder.
Hopefully Mexico can show Eric Holder as the real perpetrator in this case. This his doings and it must be declared loud and clear. Holder has bloo on his hands.
12 years and counting. I'm sure it's "heavily" pursued. /s
