    Attacks against our 2nd amendment rights.

    But the state of modern journalism aside, this scandal is so inflammatory few realize that official records show the current director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), B. Todd Jones — yes the individual the Obama administration brought in to replace ATF Director Kenneth Melson Aug. 30 in an effort to deflect congressional criticism — also has questions to answer about his involvement in this gunrunning scandal.

    Fast and Furious was an operation so cloak-and-dagger Mexican authorities weren’t even notified that thousands of semi-automatic firearms were being sold to people in Arizona thought to have links to Mexican drug cartels. According to ATF whistleblowers, in 2009 the U.S. government began instructing gun storeowners to break the law by selling firearms to suspected criminals. ATF agents then, again according to testimony by ATF agents turned whistleblowers, were ordered not to intercept the smugglers but rather to let the guns “walk” across the U.S.-Mexican border and into the hands of Mexican drug-trafficking organizations.
    More here. I'll go ahead and tell you that it's an older article before the date fairys come by.

    It's a rather expansive article.

    one of my friends in the marines told me a really funny story involving the afghanistan poppy farmers. Anyways, in an attempt to "stop" the heroin trade of afghanistan the military offered to buy bushels of poppies from farmers. So the first surge of people sold them their unharvested poppy plants but then they got smart, harvested their plants and then sold them to the military... lmfao. So the farmers that sold them their unharvested plants wanted got all pissed and yeah, what a major train wreck.

    We're one of the biggest hypocritical countries in the world... It's really sad to be honest how far we've fallen.
