    Mr. Obama has a problem.

    Subpoenas are going to be served this week in the investigation into why the United States was shipping thousands of guns to Mexico.

    Its looking like the ATF was ordered to supply mexican drug cartels with guns simply in order to make a phony case for banning gun sales in border states. The investigation is looking into who ordered the ATF to supply the guns. Some are saying that it was an executive order. Apparently this was done with no regard for the current drugwar in that country nor the plight of the hundreds of people murdered by those US supplied weapons.

    *IF* that is true the justice department will be obligated to appoint an Independent Counsel to investigate. Remember Ken Starr? Yeah, one of those guys. If the justice department does not seek independent counsel they face lawsuits in federal court from 2cnd amendment groups and others for violating the constitution. A grand jury could issue criminal indictments.

    I've heard they don't really let you play tennis at Club Fed. :D

    I can't believe this is the first I've heard of this. Figures, with the media so fucked up as it is.

    You're right, someone will roast. The problem is it'll just be a scapegoat.

    You know, this was actually started under another administration.

    I don't know why they are reluctant to testify when they could easily pin another problem on Bush & Co. I can see the soundbites now: "We inherited this illegal gun problem from the previous administration!" "It's Bushes fault!"

    I'm just saying.
  7. It doesn't matter which admin it was started under.

    Bush started a program to investigate guns moving south.

    Obama ordered the ATF to supply those weapons in large numbers directly to mexican drug cartels.

    Bit of a distinction there don'tcha think?

    I dont buy it.

    They sold expensive semi-auto weapons to people that could buy inexpensive full auto weapon on the black market?

    You can buy a black mkt fully auto AK or M4 platform in latin america CHEAP, real cheap. WTF would the criminal element buy a rifle for $800++ that is semi all the while putting themselves under the scrutiny of our federal authorities.

    Oh and if your talking class 3 weapons your looking at $10k++++++. And there simply arent that many of them to "export". Plus the hassle of getting the approval, background checks...etc

    This is how the US Government operates - problem > reaction > solution.

    Hype, foment and create panic to usher in the desired solution.

    It's totally Machiavellian.
