"The U.S. government's Operation Fast and Furious was a plot to subvert gun rights in America, National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre (pictured at left) charged October 14 in an interview with Newsmax.TV.
“It’s the only thing that makes any sense,” LaPierre said of the gunrunning "sting" operation that resulted in thousands of U.S.-purchased firearms ending up in the hands of violent Mexican drug traffickers. LaPierre noted that "over a period of two or three years they were running thousands and thousands of guns to the most evil people on earth,” while government officials were claiming that 90 percent of the guns used by the Mexican cartels were coming from the United States. However, said LaPierre:
That [90 percent] was a phony figure from the very start. Even the Wikileaks cables from our own State Department prove they are coming from Central America; they are not coming from the U.S. Every police officer will tell you that they’re coming from Russia, they’re coming from China, most of them are coming from Central America and a lot of them are coming from defections from the Mexican Army."

This is so obvious. There is all kinds of evidence already - even before any special investigation is started, that this was a plot to create the needed statistics to give the administration the excuse to push hard for more gun control - and gain political favor.
Only the "statistics" turned into the murder of a Border Patrol Agent - not to mention the Mexican nationals that have died and the other people that have yet to be affected. All in the name of politics - by Barak H. Obama.
This man needs to be impeached and flushed from office. He is a disgrace.
