Alert the media! More guns from Operation Fast and Furious have turned up at crime scenes. I know, it’s just another “phony scandal,” but you would think it would merit at least as much attention as a silly rodeo clown.
Rodeo clowns constitute a real crisis in media eyes, while deaths from the administration’s gun-running operation to Mexican drug cartels are ignored as three more guns show up at crime scenes in Mexico.
The media have had a field day with a single, supposedly racist rodeo clown. But somehow, with few exceptions, mainstream media ignore the far-more-dangerous clowns in the Obama administration — those whose incompetence in the Fast and Furious scandal has led to human tragedy and deaths.
One exception is the relentless Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, who reported Wednesday that three more weapons from Fast and Furious, the administration gift that keeps on killing, have turned up at violent crime scenes in Mexico. CBS News reported all three guns are WASR-10 762-caliber Romanian rifles.
Two were purchased by Fast and Furious suspect Uriel Patino in May and July of 2010. Sean Steward, who was convicted on gun charges in July 2012, purchased a third. The rifles have been traced to the Lone Wolf gun shop in Glendale, Ariz.
Details of exactly where the guns were found and what the crimes were aren’t known at this point. And the Department of Justice, under Attorney General Eric Holder, is not about to divulge that information or any information about the recovery of Fast and Furious weapons at crime scenes.
The Democrats salivate over the prospect of disarming law abiding Americans while gangsters are running wild in Mexico with guns supplied by the Obama administration.
