Two former U.S. military soldiers have been charged with offering drug-dealing, training, and murder-for-hire services to DEA posing as members of the Mexican Las Zetas drug cartel. This is the same drug cartel that received weapons from the ATF in what is now known as the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. According to the article from cnsnews.com:
[Indicted soldier Kevin] Corley “offered to provide tactical training for cartel members, including approaches, room clearing, security, and convoy security. Kevin Corley also offered to purchase weapons for the cartel under his name as long as he could destroy serial numbers.”
He “explained that weapons could easily be stolen from military posts, and he explained removing sear pins to make rifles fire faster,” adds the complaint.
Corley “thoroughly explained military tactics and told undercover agents he could train 40 cartel members in two weeks,” reads the complaint. “Kevin Corley said he had already discussed this opportunity with several experienced soldiers in his platoon who expressed interest in working with the cartel.”
This is corruption at its finest. Whether from ex-military or from the ATF itself, there is a concerted effort to arm, fund, and train the Las Zetas drug cartel. But why?
It seems as though there are people in governmnet who are trying to demonize the 2nd amendment. Fortunately for us, one hand does not seem to know what the other hand is doing, resulting in corrupt factions within the military offering undercover DEA agents posing as cartel members drugs, training, and weapons!
Eric Holder and Co. at the Justice Department want the drug cartels to wreak havoc along the southern border and blame....gun shops. Not themselves for supplying thousands of guns illegally (to a DRUG CARTEL, no less), or to the lack of security that led to guys like Kevin Corley "easily" stealing them from military bases, but....gun shops. Why gun shops? because they want to restrict gun sales, then eventually ban them.
Holder may testify before congress claiming ignorance when it comes to the nefarious activities associated with Fast and Furious, but its pretty obvious he and others in the Justice Department knew exactly what was happening. Even CBS news ran an investigative that proved Holder knew about the operation long before he claimed:
New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.
On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing, "I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks."
Yet internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing Fast and Furious.
As far back as 1995 Holder was advocating "brainwashing" people against their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms:
