Three more weapons from the Fast and Furious gun walking operation by U.S. law enforcement "have turned up at crime scenes in Mexico" as reported by Sharyl Attkisson for CBS News:
A steady stream of the guns have been recovered at crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S. But the Justice Department has refused repeated requests from Congress and CBS News to provide a full accounting. An estimated 1,400 guns are still on the street or unaccounted for.
Over 200 people have been killed, including border patrol agent Brian Terry, by Fast and Furious guns.
The Justice Department says it hoped the walked guns would lead to cartel leaders but the purported explanation makes no sense on its face because tracking devices were not placed on any of the subject weapons, and they would be recovered only later at murder scenes which invariably involve expendable soldiers -- often teenagers -- rather than powerful bosses.
An increasing number of well-respected and highly-informed individuals conjecture that the Fast and Furious was a CIA operation to arm the Sinaloa cartel in order to defeat Los Zetas as reported by Michael Walsh for the New York Post:
Under this theory, the Agency feared the los Zetas drug cartel was becoming too powerful and might even mount a coup against the Mexican government. So some 2,000 weapons costing more than $1.25 million were deliberately channeled to the rival Sinaloa cartel, which operates along the American border, to keep the Zetas in check.
Indeed, in 2011 forty high-powered assault weapons from the disasterous operation were found in the home of a reputed enforcer for the Sinaloa cartel as reported by Richard A. Serrano for the Los Angeles Times: "'These Fast and Furious guns were going to Sinaloans, and they are killing everyone down there,' said one knowledgeable U.S. government source, who asked for anonymity because of the ongoing investigations."
