In my previous column I wrote that Congressman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) said the Mexican government has called Projects ‘Gun Runner’ and ‘Fast and Furious’ an “act of war”. After being flooded with numerous media inquiries the Congressman’s office contacted me and said the actual words he used were “an active war” -not “an act of war”- and he was referring to the Mexican war on drugs not, not Projects Gun Runner and Fast And Furious.
After listening to the audio from our interview several times I must say I find it indistinguishable. You can listen to the You Tube below and decide for yourself.
The Washington Post is reporting that the words ‘act of war’ were used in a previous interview conducted with California talk show host Rick Roberts a few weeks ago. Either way over 2500 weapons were inexcusably allowed to walk, two Border Agents are dead, the DOJ is stonewalling Issa’s subpoena requests, and the Congressman should be applauded for his efforts to find out who made the decision behind Projects ‘Gun Runner’ and ‘Fast and Furious’.
In another development CBSnews.com is reporting that “virtually all the top ATF managers in Phoenix involved in the controversial “Fast and Furious” operation have been reassigned and replaced”, an “unprecedented” move according to one insider.
Could it be Issa was correct when he compared this to Iran-Contra and said, “When a government agency makes a mistake they stall, delay and cover up“? Stay tuned. There is more to come and I don’t believe we have heard the last on this from our neighbors south of the border.
