Our friend Katie Pavlich at Townhall.com points us to a recent discovery by Judicial Watch that shows Mexican narco-terrorists supplied with weapons by the Obama Administration were responsible for an assault on a Phoenix apartment complex that injured several people:
Documents obtained through a lawsuit recently issued against the City of Phoenix by government watchdog Judicial Watch reveal a weapon from the Department of Justice’s Operation Fast and Furious was used to injure two people in a 2013 gang-style assault on an apartment complex. When the incident occurred and during investigation afterward, police worked with federal law enforcement agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Department of Homeland Security, FBI and Drug Enforcement Agency in the case, raising suspicions the assault wasn’t simply a typical, local gang shootout and prompted questions about the details of where the weapons that were used came from.
“Thanks to our lawsuit, Congress has been able to confirm what Judicial Watch already reported – that a Fast and Furious weapon was used in yet another violent crime that terrorized and injured residents of Phoenix,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “Our lawsuit against Phoenix exposed how the Obama cover-up of Fast and Furious is ongoing. Eric Holder’s Department of Justice is a mess. It has endangered the public and is engaged in an ongoing cover-up of its insanely reckless Fast and Furious gun-running operation. Judicial Watch appreciates the refreshing diligence of Senator Grassley and Congressman Issa in pursuing the truth about Fast and Furious.”
The specific firearm used in the attack was picked up in a straw purchase while under ATF surveillance.
More than 304 people have been murdered with firearms provided to the Sinaloa cartel by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
To date, no one has been fired as a result of the gun-smuggling operation, much less criminally charged.
