While the continuing investigation of the Obama administration's scandal, known as Operation Fast and Furious, heats up, it is now being reported that weapons that walked across the border into Mexico are not just being found in Mexico.
U.S. weapons that were exported to Mexico as part of the controversial "Fast and Furious" program ended up in the hands of Colombia crime syndicate Oficina de Envigado, reported newspaper El Tiempo Monday.
According to the newspaper, investigations by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) have established that some of the weapons found during the arrest of Oficina boss "Sebastian" were part of the thousands of arms lost in the Fast and Furious program.
The source added that ATF agents are in Medellin where the Oficina operates and inspect every seized firearm found in raids in Colombia's second largest city.
"Two rifles that were seized in February with 'Frank', the brother of Sebastian also are part of the tracking operations of the ATF, the same with 14 Five-seven guns we have found in several raids," said an anonymous high-ranking source within Colombia's National Police.
Last month Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, known as the Sinaloa Cartel’s “logistics coordinator,” brought allegations that the gunwalking operation had nothing to do with tracking guns and everything to do with supplying them. According to Zambada-Niebla it was part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. and Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.
Once everything is fully disclosed, if it ever is, I'm afraid we will discover many more deaths have occurred than what has been reported because of Operation Fast and Furious. The question remains: Who will ultimately be held accountable for the operation?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
