Operation Fast & Furious had as its central purpose the subversion of the US Constitution.
The program’s stategy was to gin up a furor over guns sourced in the US being used in Mexican crime so that the US public could be stampeded into restricting the 2nd Amendment.
Since few such guns were being used in Mexico more had to be supplied.
They also had to show up at crime scenes so that they could be traced back to the US to ‘prove’ the Obama administration’s assertions.
The GOP should be harping on one message every time F&F is mentioned. F&F was a program designed to result in Mexican deaths - so that ‘evil’ US-sourced guns could be found at the crime scenes and US gun laws could be blamed for the carnage.
Holder, Napolitano, Hillary and Obama and a host of their minions cooked this program up knowing that Mexicans would die - in fact, needing Mexicans to die for this scheme to work.
The Obama administration was cynically willing to slaughter Hispanics to accomplish their political purposes.
The only “botch” in the scheme was F&F guns turning up to get Americans killed too.
