The batboys have been hip deep in another criminal enterprise for a while, and now there's a body count. ATF's "Operation Gunrunner" is all about the allegedly high number of US guns ending up south of the border in cartel hands. We've all heard Hillary, et al bleat about this for months. Turns out Arizona ATF has for months now been sending guns seized in American cases south in the hands of their snitches to pad the numbers. Just before Christmas one of those rifles was used to shoot Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in the back, killing him. There's plenty known about this, and a handful of us have been trying to get the word out with very little success. I have tried to get a couple of radio talksters to run with this, to no avail. Hours of time wasted walking their producers through this mess. I had equally dismal success with a former congresscritter known for his border stance and a with so-called gun rights activist in Iowa, wouldn't even respond to me despite the documented fact that Senator Grassley's staff knows all about this and is sitting on it as well. Best sources are here Sipsey Street Irregulars and here Codrea - Gun Rights Examiner. You'll have to scroll back through a few weeks worth of posts at each site to get the whole story, but these are good sites to read anyway. (Sipsey Street in particular, because a lot of us Monkeys are Three Percenters even though we don't know it yet.) Mike at Sipsey Street has good sources inside ATF, and has been a thorn in their side for years. He has ATF agents willing to testify about ATF's criminal actions, but they need whistle blower protection and no officials are stepping up to protect them. (And protection is a necessity, given that ATF is one of the most corrupt/rogue federal agencies there is.) For two weeks now, I've had Mike's permission to give out his home and cell numbers to radio shows. He's perfectly willing to spend the time documenting everything for them, but no-one I've contacted has been willing to run with the story. We had high hopes that the story would break last week, but the shooting in Arizona and the spectacle that followed gave everyone the distraction needed to shove this Arizona story completely off the table. (Good timing, eh?) Please read up on this, and spread the word.
