Gunrunner: Operation Fast and Furious target was arrested in 2010 and released from custody

March 19, 2012

  Operation Fast and Furious began on October 31st 2009, and according to internal ATF documents, Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta was one of the main suspects that the failed operation was targeting. Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta was arrested a few short months after the deadly operation began, in May of 2010, but was released after Special Agent Hope MacAllister gave him a phone number and  he promised to keep in touch with the agency.

  Needless to say, Celis-Acosta never called back, he slipped back into Mexico and was never heard from again until he was arrested after Operation Fast and Furious was stopped.

  The ATF had in their possession one of the men who was supposed  to be a main target of this sting operation and yet instead of prosecuting this criminal and ending the program once it had achieved its objective he was released and the program was allowed to continue until Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was allowed to walk into an ambush the United States government knew was about to happen and laid down his life fighting for a government he never thought would betray him in such a horrific manner.

    So if Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta was indeed one of the individuals the government had hoped to snare in this operation how could it be that the government let him walk after he was captured? Could it be that the government was naive enough to think this criminal would be honest enough to lead them to even higher value targets in Mexico? Or could it be that something more nefarious was at foot and he wasn’t the ultimate target; could it be possible that the ultimate target of Operation Fast and Furious was actually the American people themselves?

  It is my opinion that the goal of Operation Fast and Furious was never to arrest high value drug and weapons smugglers, but rather to “prove” the 90% lie in an effort to gain more support with the American people for an assault weapons ban as well as the United Nations Small Arms Treaty.

  The Obama regime needed a crisis in order to follow Rahm Emanuel’s mantra of never letting a good crisis go to waste, and by arresting and detaining Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta so soon after the operation was started the crisis which the government longed for would have been averted before it ever could have festered, and a good opportunity to implement gun control legislation on law abiding American citizens would have been lost. So he was allowed to walk, the deadly program continued, and Brian Terry is dead as a result.

  At the time of Celis-Acosta’s arrest the United States government had not recovered enough of the weapons at crime scenes that it had sold to the Mexican drug cartels, so he was released in order assure the government had more time in the hope that more weapons could be recovered before the program was stopped. Unfortunately for the Obama regime an American hero had to die before this program was finally stopped and the ensuing scandal brought to light.

    Isn’t just the best. You must save all of your posts and book it in a book and call it The Complete works of Eric Holder

    It looks as though we will never have all the facts. One big cover-up! Agent Perry’s family and America deserve better!

      The coverup is deep and I don’t think we will get to the bottom of it before the election, if we ever do get to the bottom of it.

    Great post,
    I hope this story puts f & f back in the headlines where it belongs.

    I can’t help but think Issa has something up his sleeve. He said this was bigger than Iran-Contra. He must have more information.

      I hope you are right, but since the time the story broke about Boehner putting the brakes on the investigation it seems as if nothing has been happening on this story.

    Do you know that obama has allowed his daughter to go to mexico for spring break with all this going on? She has 25 bodyguards who must be nervous wrecks! Is obama asking for trouble when so many young men and women have disappeared there? Or does obama think he so far above us they won’t touch his family? Or is he cruising for a bruising from the cartels, who must know she’s there? There’s plenty of places in the United States of America but the family keeps leaving the states.Don’t the obama’s like it here or are they getting boo’ed more than we know.

    It is time, my friend, for us to clean house from the top to the botttom. This is dispicable on so many levels. And to be honest … frightening. The fact that our government will put our men and women in harms way and then hide when the sh** hits the fan, in an act of self-preservation, is stunning to me.

    Great job Steve … as always.

    P. S. Love the new look!

      I am becoming more upset with the whole state of our government Republicans included. A clean house would be a great way to start because I really don’t believe many of the guys in power have our best interests at heart.
      Thanks for the compliments! The new look has taken many months but it’s getting there. 🙂

    Man Steve, you have really laid this out. It’s outrage after outrage with this administration.

    Steve – Your analysis of the real agenda of Fast and Furious is exactly the same as mine. The gun control fanatics will stoop to any means necessary to advance their agenda. To their mind set most probably is that murdered ICE Agent Brian Terry was in the wrong place at the wrong time. These people prove themselves more dangerous than guns. This includes the current socialist in charge of the DOJ….WM
