    This is proving this was not just underling BATF agents dreaming up Gunrunner and implementing it.

    If you've followed this total fiasco AT ALL...you have to be aware that this looney scheme would NEVER be run by your standard issue Washington beaurocrat without EXPLICIT guidance coming from THE HIGHEST LEVELS. The COVERUP is the issue that needs to be focussed on now...anyone who cares to know already understands what a tragedy our government promulgated in their effort to create statistics to support their gun-grabbing agenda against US. The racist bastards at DOJ didn't care that their little scheme was going to result ( predictably) in the deaths of Mexican citizens...but they weren't ready for the unintended consequences of American Agents being murdered as well.
    Put the heat on and keep it on until people start cracking and allowing the truth to leak out. It is VERY important to note at this point that the ATF director Melson took his PERSONAL attorney with him when called to testify...he didn't take an Obama-bot from DOJ.
    Perhaps there's still hope.

    Oh my. The original bill was pretty explicit.

    (1) assign agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives to the United States mission in Mexico, to work with Mexican law enforcement agencies in conducting investigations relating to firearms trafficking and other criminal enterprises;

    (2) provide the equipment and technological resources necessary to support investigations and to trace firearms recovered in Mexico; and

    (3) support the training of Mexican law enforcement officers in serial number restoration techniques, canine explosive detection, and antitrafficking tactics.

    (b) Authorization of Appropriations- There are authorized to be appropriated $9,500,000 for each of fiscal years 2010 and 2011 to carry out this section.
