On Sunday, Mexican prosecutors said they have charged seven individuals in the infamous “Fast and Furious” weapons trafficking scandal. Among those charged in the more than decade old case  were former top police official Genaro Garcia Luna and former drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.

“Fast and Furious” was and investigation in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sold guns to criminals with the intention of tracking the weapons.

The plan went horribly wrong, and the agency lost most of the guns, including two guns that were found at the scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who was murdered In December of 2010.

Terry’s murder exposed the bungled investigation. Fox News reports Mexico says drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking. Garcia Luna was arrested in Texas in 2019 for allegedly protecting a drug gang.

Luna was security chief in President Felipe Calderon’s 2006-2012 administration, and was also tasked with being the leader of the government’s fight against organized crime. Also charged was former Federal Police commander Luis Cardenas Palomino, who was the right-hand man of Garcia Luna.

Palomino was already arrested on charges of torture and U.S. prosecutors have separately accused him of accepting millions in bribes from the Sinaloa cartel, reports Fox News. Drug lord ‘El Chapo’ was also charged with weapons trafficking, but is already serving a life sentence in Colorado.

    The article maintains that the weapons were lost, implying some kind of managerial mistake….they were deliberately released with no intention of tracking by the (Obama) administration to enhance their attack on the 2nd amendment.

    Why weren’t the brains at the ATF charged at least with terminal stupidity?

    The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine. Hopefully the people in the USA that are involved are eventually charged too.

The hypocrisy is “palpable” Sara Carter told Steve Hilton on his show Sunday. “All you have to do its listen to what the Democrats are saying to know they’re hypocrites” says Carter. They have District Attorneys who allow low bails or no bails and let criminals out on the streets, “so it appears they care about playing politics; and they play these politics against the constitution.”

Carter continues that if one were to take a trip with her down to the border, anyone would see that no one is in charge and it is utter chaos.
