Also nominated are all those gun bloggers who are trying to say this is a big deal.Yeah--silly gun bloggers, who think that something that significantly contributes to forcing the resignation of the ambassador to our third biggest trade partner is "a big deal."They probably also think it's "a big deal" that some Mexicans are calling for extradition of senior BATFE thugs over this:Some Mexican legislators have publicly said ATF agents who crafted and carried out the strategy could be extradited to Mexico and arrested. The legislators quote ATF agent John Dodson, as interviewed in our report.Guess the Mexicans themselves are also silly enough to think it's "a big deal"--what with them being "livid" about it.I mea, sure--Mexican lawmakers think at least 150 of their people have been killed or wounded with the guns trafficked with the BATFE's blessing, but we all know that's not "a big deal."You know better, of course.
This is a BIG DEAL! When people's lives are put on the line and their families, it is time for action. The ATF is no better than the drug dealers and the gunrunners they supposedly are after. There needs to be an investigation, not the usual cover up, which is exactly what you will get with this situation, a cover up, nothing will ever come of it, except to ruin Rene Jaquez and the good he is trying to do by letting the cat out of the bag. He will probably lose his job, his home and is probably a marked man because he had the guts to speak out about the injustices perpetrated by the ATF and obviously with the sanction of all the other agencies involved. Somebody needs to answer for this as it is a BIG DEAL!The Finder
Fine, it's a big deal or at least it's turning into one. But give me a break with all the exaggerated outrage. You guys and Mr. Jaquez make me laugh with your pretending to be scandalized. This guy was an undercover agent in one of the most dangerous places on the planet, now what, he's about to cry because someone he knows COULD have been killed. And you guys are going to pretend to take that seriously?
Fine, it's a big deal or at least it's turning into one.You can bet your wrinkled ass on that.But give me a break with all the exaggerated outrage. You guys and Mr. Jaquez make me laugh with your pretending to be scandalized.My outrage is entirely genuine. I see "Project Gunwalker" as a deliberate attempt to bolster the argument (such as it is) for gun regulation even more draconian than already exists in this country, by fabricating an artificial "crisis" of guns from the American civilian market going to Mexico, and being used in crime there (and sometimes on this side of the border).As for Special Agent Jaquez, I don't pretend to know his frame of mind, because (unlike you, evidently) I don't claim to be able to see into his thoughts.But his outrage looked real enough to me, and seems reasonable.
