Incredibly, Obama’s Fast & Furious scandal is even worse than we knew. The federal government didn’t just lean on gun dealers to provide over 2,000 guns to Mexican drug cartels; bureaucrats used our money to buy weapons that they then sold to foreign gangsters themselves. The shocking details:
According to documents obtained by Fox News, [ATF] Agent John Dodson was ordered to buy six semi-automatic Draco pistols — two of those were purchased at the Lone Wolf gun store in Peoria, Ariz. An unusual sale, Dodson was sent to the store with a letter of approval from David Voth, an ATF group supervisor.
Dodson then sold the weapons to known illegal buyers, while fellow agents watched from their cars nearby.
This was not a “buy-bust” or a sting operation, where police sell to a buyer and then arrest them immediately afterward. In this case, agents were “ordered” to let the sale go through and follow the weapons to a stash house.
Then the ATF watched the house to see what happened to the guns, right? Wrong.
According to sources directly involved in the case, Dodson felt strongly that the weapons should not be abandoned and the stash house should remain under 24-hour surveillance. However, Voth disagreed and ordered the surveillance team to return to the office. Dodson refused, and for six days in the desert heat kept the house under watch, defying direct orders from Voth.
A week later, a second vehicle showed up to transfer the weapons. Dodson called for an interdiction team to move in, make the arrest and seize the weapons. Voth refused and the guns disappeared with no surveillance.
What could be the motive for making Dodson — no fan of the Obama/Holder gunrunning enterprise — take part in this lunacy? Here’s a theory:
Voth gave Dodson the assignment to “dirty him up,” since Dodson had become the most vocal critic of the operation.
It didn’t work. After Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed with one of the guns Obama and Holder provided to Mexican criminals, Dodson blew the whistle. The rest is unfolding history.
Mexico has opened up criminal investigations into the Fast & Furious outrage. If Obama is indicted for assisting in the destabilization of that country as part of his efforts to discredit the Second Amendment, extradition would be in order — even if we have to impeach him first.
