For those who don’t know, the Gunwalker scandal goes like this: For whatever reason, the ATF decided that it was a good idea to let guys that they knew were buying guns in mass quantities to give to the Cartels in Mexico… go ahead and do it. Those weapons were then used to murder at least a couple of hundred people, including American federal agents, like Border Guard Brian Terry. They were giving guns to guys that were, in the words of the ATF, “stone cold killers.”
The DoJ initially denied knowing anything about it. As the investigation has proceeded, not only did the DoJ know, but the FBI was probably involved in destroying evidence in the Terry case, and the connections go all the way to the White House.
Now, it turns out that the ATF didn’t just let them buy guns — they went ahead and bought a few of them directly and swept the paperwork under the carpet. This goes way past Watergate. This is like deciding to replace the “plumbers” with FBI agents, and they happened to kill a few security guards at the hotel on the way.
Watergate didn’t have a body count. Gunwalker has hundreds.
This is domestic terrorism. Pure and simple.
