Even under the self-styled “most transparent administration in history,” which was installed and is propped up by a rabidly partisan “mainstream” media, we can still get some clue what is going on, thanks to outfits like Judicial Watch:
The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico.
Calling it a failed experiment rather than a deliberate scheme to generate bad press for the Second Amendment gives Obama et al. the benefit of the doubt — which they have done nothing to deserve.
[T]he rifle used to kill the federal agent (Brian Terry) last December in Arizona’s Peck Canyon was part of the now infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the disastrous scheme allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels [supposedly].
Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of more than 1,000 guns which have been used in numerous crimes. In Terry’s case, five illegal immigrants armed with at least two semi-automatic assault rifles were hunting for U.S. Border Patrol agents near a desert watering hole just north of the Arizona-Mexico border when a firefight erupted and Terry got hit.
We know this only because Washington D.C.’s conservative newspaper , the Washington Times, got ahold of the court documents before the government suddenly made them off limits. The now-sealed federal grand jury indictment tells the frightening story of how Terry was gunned down by Mexican drug smugglers patrolling the rugged desert with the intent to “intentionally and forcibly assault” Border Patrol agents.
You can see why the administration wants to keep this information from the public and the media, considering the smugglers were essentially armed by the U.S. government. Truth is, no one will know the reason for the confiscation of public court records in this case because the judge’s decision to seal it was also sealed, according to the news story.
One thing we do know is that if our rulers hide things, it’s because they have things to hide.
In this case the judge could be acting to shield not only the Obama Regime, but the drug cartels that are extending their bloody operations throughout the Southwest. No doubt it would be racist or xenophobic to object to foreign criminals hunting our law enforcement officers on our land with weapons provided by our government. After all, the invaders are just trying to provide for their families, et cetera, ad nauseam.
