Mexico Wants Information On Operation Fast And Furious

Remember, there was not a hint of corruption in the Obama administration. And this is going to confirm that no corruption

Mexico sheds light on note requesting answers over Obama era gun-running sting: report

The foreign minister of Mexico announced on Monday that he sent a diplomatic note to the U.S. requesting answers related to a gun-running sting that caused tension during the Obama administration, according to a report.

In a video posted on Twitter, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard quoted Eric Holder, the former U.S. Attorney General, as saying Mexican authorities knew about the ill-fated 2009-2011 scheme known as “Fast and Furious.”

“The [Mexican] government requests that it be provided with all the information available regarding the ‘Fast and Furious’ operation,” Ebrard said, according to Reuters. (snip)

A review of the program found that only 710 out of roughly 2,000 firearms were recovered as of February 2012, according to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG). In 2011, Holder had requested the OIG to conduct a review of operation “Fast and Furious.”

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had said last week his government would send a diplomatic note to Washington for information on the operation, as his current regime digs for more information on the cooperation between the U.S. and Mexico, as well as possible corruption under previous administrations.

“How could this be? A government that invades in this way, that flagrantly violates sovereignty, international laws,” Lopez Obrador said at a news conference, according to Reuters.

We’d really like to know who knew what and when as well, Andres. Seriously, who green-lit a program that they knew would lose lots of guns and see the end up in Mexico? Some lower level regional supervisor certainly wouldn’t have authorized Operation Fast and Furious, and even the head of ATF and the others involved

On October 26, 2009, a teleconference was held at the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C. to discuss U.S. strategy for combating Mexican drug cartels. Participating in the meeting were Deputy Attorney General David W. Ogden, Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, acting ATF Director Kenneth E. Melson, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrator Michele Leonhart, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Robert Mueller and the top federal prosecutors in the Southwestern border states. They decided on a strategy to identify and eliminate entire arms trafficking networks rather than low-level buyers.[3][40][41] Those at the meeting apparently did not suggest using the “gunwalking” tactic, but Phoenix ATF supervisors would soon use it in an attempt to achieve the desired goals.

along with the Arizona US Attorney’s office would have wanted higher guidance when these guns could end up in Mexico. And with Trump in the White House and Barr as AG the true details of the program might well be released. Especially with Obama running his mouth as of late.

    Actually, Mexico Wants somebody to hang for Operation Fast And Furious.

    Given all the info coming out, looks like Zippy and My People may be the sacrificial goats. Maybe even the Hildabeast.

    Kell Shame.

    It’s a great idea. In fact, we should go back and investigate the foreign policy of other previous administrations. Iran-Contra, Iraq and Afghanistan invasions, Marine barracks in Lebanon, etc.

    It’s interesting that Mexico suddenly has initiated activities to support the Trump campaign.

      Do not worry 50 center. A million MSM and DEEP STATERS will ensure that Trump and Biden and HRC and any other Democrat never sees the inside of a jail cell.

      Do not worry 50 center. YOu defend corruption and scandal like your very familiar with it as in the CCP of CHINA.

      Do not worry 50 center. The MSM, the Deep State and CHINA will laugh at Trump the DOJ and anyone reporting on any thing criminal Obama and company ever did.

      It is after all the way things are done in DC now. The MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY has taught us so much about how to do things.

      Its called, greasing up for the deep state and daring NOT to make waves. It is why BUSH the COWARD hid in the WHITE HOUSE because when he came out they threw shoes and the sniveling little pekker wood who started wars all over the gawd dayum place and then let My sons fight them.

      As alway6s, you lie.

      Mexico wants to investigate, since crimes were committed against their citizens.

      You also lie when you imply Iran-Contra, the War on Terror, Marine barracks in Lebanon, etc., were criminal acts.

      The Congress voted on most of that stuff and approved it, so a lot of Democrats are in it just as deep as any Rs.

      But, hey, let’s investigate Pearl Harbor or the Gulf of Tonkin. Those were Democrat productions. we can even go back to the Zimmermann Telegram and the sinking of the Lusitania.

      It’s interesting that Mexico suddenly has initiated activities to support the Trump campaign.

      No, it’s interesting AMLO reads all the blogs and newspapers most of the people here do and sees all the dirt on Zippy coming out.

      Paranoia strikes deep
      Into your life it will creep
      It starts when you’re always afraid
      Step out of line, the man come and take you away
