From CBS News:

Mexican beauty queen Susana Flores Maria Gamez and four others died in the brutal gun battle between Sinaloa cartel members and the Mexican military in November. CBS News has learned that an FN Herstal pistol recovered near the crime scene in November was originally purchased by an Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) manager who was faulted by the Inspector General in Operation Fast and Furious: George Gillett. Gillett was the Asst. Special Agent in Charge of ATF Phoenix when Fast and Furious began.

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley would like to know why ATF agents are personally buying guns illegally and sending them south of the border.

“Lying on a Form 4473 is a felony and can be punished by up to five years in prison,” Grassley’s letter states. The senator also points out that’s the same alleged violation that suspects in ATF’s Fast and Furious operation were arrested for. “Jaime Avila, Jr. recently plead guilty to a variety of charges” in Fast and Furious, including “for giving a false address on Form 4473.”

Form 4473’s require purchasers to list their current residential address. Gillett’s gun purchase forms incorrectly list the local ATF Phoenix office and a shopping plaza as his personal residence, according to Grassley’s letter.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Another Mexican citizen murdered by guns sent south directly to cartel members – this time not just by the government program they ran, but by the agents themselves.  The lie that Fast and Furious/Gunwalker was a “botched sting” falls apart even further when agents who were supposedly trying to stop cartels, and knew how their “botched sting” wasn’t working are now found to be arming them personally.

Brian Terry has been dead for 2 years now, and no one has been held accountable for arming the cartels that killed him.  Jaime Zapata has been dead for nearly a year and no one has been held accountable for arming the cartels that killed him.  At least hundreds of Mexican citizens – our neighbors – are dead over the course of Fast and Furious, and no one has been held accountable for their mass murder.

RIP, Ms. Gamez.

    how could Adam have been the shooter at Sandy Hook when they his assault rifle locked in the trunk of his car at the end of that day? Who else had motive and opportunity to carry out such a professional hit that day? Who stood to profit, whose sinister agenda could have been advanced? And whose knee-jerk emotional response was forced in our faces, before the gunsmoke hardly cleared? Most folks are too frightened, or too traumatized to even consider the most painful, the most inconvenient of all Truths, and yet the facts will show, the usual suspects, the same ones that gave us Aurora, Colorado, the same who gave us the shooting at the Sikh Temple, the same source of the bomb they used, to blow up theWTC
