Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit did an excellent interview with Katie Pavlich about her new book Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Blooiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up.
The Obama administration including the President, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Homeland Security head Janet Napolitano have promoted Fast and Furious as an operation to take down what they called "'the big fish'" in Mexican drug cartels by denying them access to weapons from US gun dealers.
They falsely claimed that 90% of drug cartel weapons were bought in the US. As Pavlich points out cartels steal or buy their weapons from stock piles of corrupt Mexican and Latin American law enforcement agencies.
The Justice Department has claimed that they wanted straw purchasers to buy 2500 weapons to track them falling into the hands of drug cartels so they can go after them. Pavlich says that her discovery has led to the conclusion "that they never had any plans to actually track these guns."
So the Justice Department set up the gun dealers. They would blame them for weapons in Mexico and betray them after ordering them to sell weapons to straw purchasers to make an example of them to force stricter regulations on guns in the US.
The cover up is worse than the crime. Eric Holder's Justice Department has wittheld documents and so heavily redacted others that they are barely readable.
This is a "scandal with a lot of little scandals" in it. ATF Agent Brian Terry was killed with one of the weapons.
Tens of thousands of Mexican-Americans in the US and Mexicans in the US have been murdered in cartel wars. Most of these are Catholics.
The Obama administration has thought nothing of putting Hispanic Catholic lives in danger to further their dogmatic hatred of citizens who own weapons and want to defend themselves.
The Obama administration has likewise thought nothing of lynching Hispanic Catholic George Zimmerman without evidence or trial for the killing of Trayvon Martin.
Why is Obama kiling Hispanic Catholics?
