Operation Castaway extends Gunrunner scandal into Honduras

July 10, 2011

  As if allowing guns to be sold to Mexican drug lords wasn’t bad enough for Eric Holder and the Obama regime, it looks as if this was only a small effort in a grander plan. The ATF was also involved in another gunrunning scandal called “Operation Castaway” which allowed the sale of weapons to Honduras.

but our source is certain that O’Brien has allowed the “walking” of straw-purchased firearms to Honduras using the same failed strategy as the Phoenix Field Division’s Operation Fast and Furious.  That Operation Castaway involved arms smuggling to Honduras is also certain

This is confirmed as accurate,” the correspondence continued. “There are emails in existence where O’Brien has advised those involved that Tampa does not have to report their walked guns because Tampa FD is not a part of Southwest Border or Project Gunrunner.”

“From a first person source she is sh*tting herself trying to cover it up,” the report stated. 

  About 1,000 guns were sold to a violent drug gang in Honduras, but it is even worse than that because it also appears as if some of these guns made it into Central America and have possibly been linked to violent crimes all across the globe.

  The official explanation we have been given in the Gunrunner scandal states: The United States was selling these weapons to known criminals and the guns were allowed to be walked over the border in the hopes they could be tracked to high level drug lords, but something went wrong and the federal government lost track of the weapons. As if it isn’t bad enough that our government isn’t competent or responsible enough not to lose weapons when it is known they are in the hands of drug lords, it gets worse because we must not forget that Kenneth Melson–the acting head of the ATF, and the man that Eric Holder tried to make the fall guy–testified that the federal government NEVER tracked the weapons in the first place.

One key takeaway from the meeting was that Melson acknowledged to investigators that agents had witnessed transfers of weapons from straw purchasers to third parties without following the guns afterwards
  The scope of this scandal is hard to grasp, how much bigger can it get? The United States government is acting like some third world rogue nation, selling guns to the enemy while these guns are being used in crimes against American citizens. These weapons are now allegedly turning up all over the world and we are to believe this was only simply as a measure to CURB drug and gun violence? I don’t believe it, this is part of a larger, more nefarious plan. 
 
 Never let a good crisis go to waste, and the end justifies the means are two of the Obama regime’s rules to live by we are left to wonder what exactly the Obama regime really hoped to accomplish with these operations.

    Here we go again. When will we start to hold these people accountable? When will the people take back our country and fire these criminals?

    It looks more and more like a strategy for some kind of “gun control”. But the logic is twisted. If the idea was for gun control “reform” or whatever, they didn’t do a very good job of pointing the finger away from themselves. Wouldn’t you think that an operation like this would at least have SOME KIND of misleading clues pointing to other than government? But EVERY SINGLE piece of evidence leads back to Holder and even higher. I guess Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder threw a wrench in their plans. But then again, all he had was a bean bag against U.S. government-armed terrorists.

      I agree the logic is twisted. Makes me think they that some other agenda or more than just gun control.

        Maybe there was a larger plan other than gun control, why else would they be providing the enemy with weapons to use against us?

      I think the goal was for more gun control, but the government did such a poor job with this stategy that they indicted themselves. They are not only corrupt they are inept.

    I’d like to know what Obama knew and when he knew it.

    The Founders and Framers remain true in their fundamental distrust of government, which is always operated by fallible human beings: Eternal vigilance is the the price of Liberty.
    Operation Gun Runner and Operation Fast and Furious must be seen and called out as the TREASONABLE attempts to undermine the Second Amendment, individual liberties of the American citizenry, the Constitution and American sovereignty which they in fact are as elements of Obama’s “transformational” agenda.

      Amen brother! Obama promised to fundamentally change America, but what is the foundation he wants to change? The foundation of America is the constitution so it can easliy be reasoned that he wants to move America away from her founding principles.

    It’s about gun control,directed and agreed to by the United States… through the United Nations. Clinton has been fighting hard for it and Obama is providing the reason.

      Exactly, this was an attempt at “persuading” Americans that something needed to be done about gun violence.

    One world rule, is the dream of the Socialist. To have the United Nations strip Americans of their rights to buy,carry and shoot guns is a step in this direction.

    I can see anyone investigating these atrocities will soon be “dealt with” accordingly. In that I refer to: a one car accident or worse, a heart attack. You are not going to nail the vermin so easily as a congressman and a congressional (joke) kneejerk investigation, not by a longshot. Now, if and when a new person takes the presidency, and the CIA/FBI/NSA etc., etc., are TOLD in no uncertain terms to: unravel, investigate and indict those responsible… well, that’ll be the day!
    Good luck. I won’t hold my breath.
