I think Anthony Weiner and Eric Holder should run for president in 2016.
WEINER HOLDER 2016!
Anonymous asked: what exactly is fast and furious?
Oh wow, Good question though I’m a bit shocked there’s still people that don’t know.
I could post the boring long winded encyclopedia version of what happened but here it is in a nutshell:
In Oct. 2009 the Dept. of Justice wanted to find a way to combat the Mexican drug cartels. They came up with a plan that involved allowing thousands of guns and ammo to be purchased by “strw purchasers” and walked (transported) across the border into Mexico. The ATF oversaw the operation and were the ones that were supposed to keep tabs on these weapons.
Well they didn’t do that. They lost track of hundreds of these weapons. In Dec. 2010, some of these weapons were found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder. Later, in 2011, some of these guns were found on the scene of ICE Agent Jaime Zapata’s murder. Now it is coming to light that these weapons have been used to kill hundreds of Mexican civilians, including innocent children at a birthday party.
If you are feeling like digging deeper, Google “fast and furious investigation by Darrell Issa.” He, along with a few other lawmakers, have been trying to get to the bottom of this debacle for months now.
Thank you for the question! :D
An arrest has been made in slain border patrol officer Brian Terry’s death. It is unclear whether the suspect is the trigger man, but he is being extradited from Mexico as we speak. Three more suspects remain at large.
