Gunrunner: ATF Fast and Furious targets were FBI informants

March 29, 2012

  Last week it was revealed that the ATF had apprehended Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta in May of 2010 but released him; this is significant because if you believe the government’s official story  this man was one of the main people identified by the ATF for arrest in the Fast and Furious debacle. If this were the case Operation Fast and Furious would have achieved one of its main goals, and the operation could have come to a halt before Brian Terry was murdered, and yet the ATF decided not to detain Celis-Acosta because he promised Hope MacAllister he could lead them to people even higher up in the drug trafficking ring.

 I do not believe that Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta was the target of Operation Fast and Furious, and I do not believe that the two brothers he promised to lead the ATF to were targets of the operation. I believe the real targets were American gun owners; I firmly believe that Operation Fast and Furious was designed 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 federal government wanted weapons sold in the United States to turn up at crime scenes at the Mexican border to prove that more stringent gun control laws were needed.

    However, if we are to believe the federal government–and I will briefly give them the benefit of the doubt, even though they don’t deserve it, for the sake of this post–the news gets even worse for the federal government because the two brothers that Celis-Acosta promised to lead the ATF to have turned out to be FBI informants. A simple lack of communication between the two federal agencies may have  led to the death of Brian Terry.

  Here is what Darrell Issa and Charles Grassley had to say about this news:

This means the entire goal of Fast and Furious — to target these two individuals and bring them to justice — was a failure,” they wrote. The “lack of follow-through” by the various agencies, they said, typified “the serious management failures that occurred throughout all levels during Fast and Furious

  Of course one has to believe this was the goal of Operation fast and Furious in the first place, but Celis-Acosta’s lawyer believes the agencies purposely did not exchange information:

“When one hand is not talking to the other, perhaps somebody is hiding something,” he said. “Was this intentional?”

  In a best case scenario for the federal government they are simply an incompetent, bumbling, irresponsible, criminally negligent, non-communicative entity who really did have America’s best interests at heart in regards to the violence at the Mexican border. But I do not believe the best case scenario, I think the federal government had an ulterior motive. I believe Celis-Acosta’s lawyer is correct; this was intentional and the government is hiding something. However, the government is not hiding anything in regards to Celis-Acosta, they are hiding the true intent and target of Operation Fast and Furious.

  The ATF released Celis-Acosta not because he could lead them to people who it turns out were already working with the federal government; they released Celis-Acosta because there weren’t enough weapons recovered at crime scenes to prove the 90% lie at the time of his arrest so the ATF decided releasing Celis-Acosta would buy them more time to ensure more American sold weapons would be found at crime scenes. Once this was accomplished, and only once this was accomplished, would the federal government declare mission accomplish and stop the deadly operation.

  In a way I wish it were a simple lack of communication between two government agencies but I believe it was something much more nefarious.

    No, I’m with you on this, Steve. Not even Benny Bernanke and Tiny Tim could find enough money to buy that much incompetence.

      There is no doubt in my mind that this is a cover story designed to protect the Obama regime.

    I cannot believe people are not picking up on this Steve. This was definitely an operation to plant American sold weapons at crime scenes. It was to be used to press forward with a control agenda. This is an evil thing Steve. And yet where is the public outcry to remove this man…crickets…

      The public outcry is not there because too many people don’t even know about this. The media hasn’t been doing its job because they are covering for Obama. It is so damn frustrating!

    Steve – I left the first comment – what happened….WM?

      I don’t know what happened William, I just checked my spam folder and it wasn’t there either. I apologize.

    Some of my comments are disappearing after I post. Not here, but at Jim’s, and Conservative Hideout yesterday.

    It looks like Holder is not going to let a couple of guys testify again because it is “under review”. Give me a break.

      Another WordPress commenting issue, this is starting to get on my nerves! I feel so much better knowing that Holder is looking into this. 😉

    This just makes the stench unbearable, and points to what you suggest-that the entire effort was a Cloward-Piven for the 2nd Amendment.

      That has been my belief from the very beginning, this was going to be the “crisis” the regime needed but it went horribly wrong.

    Maybe he’s looking into our comments….WM:)
