Honduras: US "government" selling guns to gangs in Honduras (?!)

"... Mike Vanderboegh, the journalist who uncovered the history ... said that his sources in the Tampa office of the ATF indicate that 1,000 guns were sold to members of Honduran gangs."

I guess Holder has been busy. Hmmmm. Anyone want to bet on when he resigns?

Hillary, Eric, Wikileaks and the BATFE Scandal: An Overview and Timeline

Note: This blog's timeline will be updated several times per week in order to keep this reference current

Note: Timeline updated August 15, 2011

Note: An even more detailed explanation of this scandal - with fewer links - can be found here. It is written from a gun rights perspective - but so far the gun rights media has been right about everything, including things that were unbelievable when first revealed. Thanks to "theheartlander" for providing it.

The Gunwalker ATF Scandal:

As more evidence emerges, it appears more and more likely that high-ranking administration officials in both the Justice and State Departments not only lied to the American people, but also conspired to increase the number of US firearms being smuggled into Mexico. This week Wikileaks (certainly not a pro-gun group) released diplomatic cables exposing a whole other side to the scandal.

Shortly after President Obama took office in January 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched a coordinated effort to pass more gun control laws here in the U.S.. The justification? 90% of military style semi-automatic rifles used in the cartel wars in Mexico were bought in U.S. gun stores and smuggled across the boarder.

There was only one problem: It was all a big lie. We now know that not only did the Justice Department know that the 90% figure was inaccurate, the State Department knew where the bulk of the rifles were actually coming from: Central America and U.S. sales to the Mexican Military.

The current timeline of the scandal provides the strongest support yet for the theory that administration officials first lied about the source of Mexican crime guns and then set about trying to support that lie by increasing the number of guns “going south”.

The one behind it?

To track the guns the POTUS said...so they promoted letting some that should not have been allowed to buy?
