Obama, Inc.’s Modus Operandi Remember Fast and Furious?: “As a refresher, from 2009 to 2011, agents from the (President Barack Obama) Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF), overseen by the (Obama Department of Justice) DOJ, allowed known straw purchasers working for Mexican cartels to illegally buy thousands of firearms at U.S. gun shops. “The ATF allowed those purchases to be illegally trafficked south of the border and into the hands of killers. The government lost track of most of the guns, and once in Mexico, they were used in an untold number of crimes. “In December 2010, Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed by Mexican bandits in Rico Valley, Ariz, and guns found at his murder scene were from the Fast and Furious operation. “Now, after more than five years of waiting, we finally received confirmation that the murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)agent Jaime Zapata in 2011 is also directly linked to Obama-era gunrunning.” Why on Earth did the Obama Administration do something this titanically stupid?
