To make matters worse, it now appears that more than 1,000 firearms were smuggled to Honduras via MS-13, the ruthless gang based in that country.
Leaders of the transnational organized criminal gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) even ordered a hit on a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent in New York.It's time that a special prosecutor be named to finish unravelling this mess...especially since the Mexican government is now pressing for extradition of those who are responsible to face trial in Mexico on conspiracy to commit-aid and abet-murder. More here. A Leftist's take here.
There are now reports that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Tampa Field Division, ran a gun-running investigation that was walking guns to Honduras using the techniques and tactics identical to Fast and Furious. 1,000 of those guns were sold to MS13 buyers.
It won't happen...because it's a Democratic administration and the MSM is so far in the tank they don't-refuse to report anything negative...but, the ATF-FBI-Justice Dept scam has directly caused the deaths of hundreds of people, and those who came up this the insanity must be held accountable, either at the bar of law here...or in Mexico.
