Two more deaths and two more people were wounded with firearms provided to the Sinaloa drug cartel by the Obama Administration’s Operation Fast and Furious, including a Mexican police chief and his bodyguard:
Another weapon lost in the Obama administration’s failed Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation has purportedly been traced to two more killings, including the fatal shooting of a police chief in Mexico.
The officer, Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, was killed Jan. 29 in the city of Hostotipaquillo, which is in central-western Mexico, when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire, according to Justice Department records obtained by The Los Angeles Times. The chief’s bodyguard was also killed, a second bodyguard and the chief’s wife were wounded.
2,500 guns were smuggled to the cartel, and obstruction into a congressional investigation of the plot by Attorney General Eric Holder has placed in him in criminal contempt of Congress (a criminal charge that a tyrannical government refuses to prosecute).
The Fast and Furious body count is now at 304+, and counting. The Obama Administration continues to stonewall the Congressional investigation.
