For those following the SNAFU called Operation Fast and Furious, aka Project Gunwalker by the guys that busted this case wide open… The situation has taken an interesting twist.
Mexico wants to put the officials on trial in Mexico. Considering the violence and damage this has done to Mexico, I am willing to let them have them. The ATF willingly armed violent criminals in Mexico. While normally I don’t like the idea of another country extriditing Americans to be tried in a foreign country… this was clearly an offense against Mexico and I think they have every right to do this.
Operation Fast and Furious is a clear violation of the laws they themselves were tasked to enforce. The ATF has invalidated their charter… the reason for their existence was to prevent this very thing, and here they are the ones doing it. Do we need a new agency to keep guns out of the hands of the ATF?
So here is the real question. Who is more irrelevant, useless, dangerous, and needs to be done away with ASAP: The ATF or the UN?
