Gunrunner: Fast and Furious weapon linked to an assassination attempt on a Tijuana police chief
In addition to the deaths of Brian Terry, Jamie Zapata, and at least three hundred Mexican civilians with the use of weapons sold to the drug cartels by the United States government during the ill-fated Fast and Furious operation there was the little reported fact that the brother of a Mexican prosecutor, Patricia Gonzalez, was also murdered with a weapon linked to the deadly scandal. This news was quickly covered up:
Tonya English, emailed her supervisors David Voth and Hope MacCallister asking them to “not release any information” on the Fast and Furious connection to that murder
Because the House voted to hold Eric Holder in civil contempt of Congress they are able to move forward with a lawsuit against the president’s assertion of executive privilege in regards to the scandal. They are now planning to sue in federal court for the release of the long sought after documents, and during this process we have now learned of yet another major crime attempted with a Fast and Furious linked weapon.
Mexican drug lords attempted to assassinate the police chief of Tijuana and a weapon linked to Fast and Furious was recovered when the attempt was foiled:
The gun — which “was seized in Tijuana in connection with a drug cartel’s conspiracy to kill the police chief of Tijuana, Baja California, who later became the Juárez police chief” — is tied to Fast and Furious.
“The firearm was found Feb. 25, 2010, during an arrest of a criminal cell associated with Teodoro ‘El Teo’ García Simental and Raydel ‘El Muletas’ López Uriarte, allies of the Sinaloa cartel,” Diana Washington Valdez wrote on Monday for the El Paso Times. “Tijuana police said they arrested four suspects in March 2010 in connection with a failed attempt to take out Julián Leyzaola, and that the suspects allegedly confessed to conspiring to assassinate the police chief on orders from Tijuana cartel leaders
With this news and the news of the murdered brother of a Mexican prosecutor one has to wonder why Mexico isn’t turning this into an international incident, after all they have claimed they were not working with the United States government on Fast and Furious. This leads us to speculate: Barack Obama has recently made a number of immigration law changes–from closing several border patrol stations, to loosening immigration laws, to implementing the DREAM Act–and one has to wonder if there is a deal between the United States and Mexico to keep this from becoming an international incident.
I have no proof of what I just stated, but that doesn’t matter because the burden of proof is not on me for I am the one who made the allegation. The burden of proof is on Barack Obama and Eric Holder to prove me wrong, if they do not they must be guilty for that is what Harry Reid has taught us over the last week.
And if that isn’t the reason, there is still a rumor out there that Barack Obama is blackmailing Mexico with the threat to cancel a $500 million initiative to combat drug violence in that country.
