How Much Worse Can Fast & Furious Get?

From September 26, 2011 Fox News:

In June 2010, however, the ATF dramatically upped the ante, making the U.S. government the actual "seller" of guns. 
According to documents obtained by Fox News, Agent John Dodson was ordered to buy six semi-automatic Draco pistols -- two of those were purchased at the Lone Wolf gun store in Peoria, Ariz. An unusual sale, Dodson was sent to the store with a letter of approval from David Voth, an ATF group supervisor.
Dodson then sold the weapons to known illegal buyers, while fellow agents watched from their cars nearby.

Not only were there no arrests--but Dodson was specifically ordered to not keep watching the house. Dodson wanted to keep the house under surveillance to prevent the guns from going to Mexico--and his supervisor told him to not do so.  How much more criminal does the government have to get before a special prosecutor gets brought into this?

Oh, it's even better than that, Clayton. The sight of an armed Federal agency taking a page directly from "Street Gang 101" and sending Dodson on this so that he would have been involved in the crimes ("dirtied up") and thus reluctant to "snitch" is proof positive that we need to put this agency out of business.

Having lived through the Watergate kerfuffle, the lamestream media's non-reaction to this scandal is telling. I expect as we get closer to the 2012 election some of the Republican candidates will start talking about Fast & Furious.

Poor Scooter Libby. If only he had been a Democrat.

If the truth is ever fully known, we will probably find that Holder and perhaps Obama himself, along with a number of other high ranking politicians are bought and paid for by the drug cartels. The drug cartels have amounts of money that most nation states only dream of. Buying politicians and judges and cops is just a business expense to them. I strongly suspect that is THE reason why nobody in DC is interested in actually closing the border, it would put too much of a crimp into their owner's business.
