I commented obliquely about the Fast and Furious folderol when I blogged regarding the clearly politically motivated attack on Holder earlier, now it seems that the _entire_ thing has been fabricated by a disgruntled ATF agent and inflamed by, get this, militia member “who has advocated armed insurrection against the U.S. government”. This is where the GOP gets its information! Oh, did anyone mention that the people behind many of the purchases (totally legal, btw) “turned out to be FBI informants who were receiving money from the bureau”?
The truth about the Fast and Furious scandal
A Fortune investigation reveals that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. How the world came to believe just the opposite is a tale of rivalry, murder, and political bloodlust.
It is very sad reading, so you might want to stick with the bliss of ignorance. It is hard enough to support our fucked-up society as it is, you may not want to realize the depths of institutional idiocy.
