Fast and Furious in the news again

Eric Holder's brilliant plan has backfired yet again -- from the Washington, DC CBS affiliate:
�Fast and Furious� Gun Found At Site Where Mexican Beauty Queen Killed
A gun found at the scene of a shootout between a Mexican drug cartel and soldiers where a beauty queen died was part of the botched �Fast and Furious� operation, CBS News reports.

Authorities had said that Maria Susana Flores Gamez was likely used as a human shield and that an automatic rifle had been found near her body after the Nov. 23 shootout.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, tells CBS News that the Justice Department did not notify Congress that a Fast and Furious firearm was found at the scene in Sinaloa.

CBS News learned the Romanian AK-47-type WASR-10 rifle found near her body was purchased by Uriel Patino at an Arizona gun shop in 2010. Patino is a suspect who allegedly purchased 700 guns while under the ATF�s watch.
Yet another failed government program with the people at the top untouched. Time to drain the swamp. Posted by DaveH at December 18, 2012 1:05 PM
