I like this quote from the article:

"This is GREAT news for everyone in America and Mexico, including Mr. Holder ó yet I donít hear anything from the media. A Google search yielded just three actual posts on this subject."

If holder is found guilty then this is not good news for him. I hope this guy talks and what he says is truthful. Either way he is a goner.

If I read this right, this guy would give Holder cover. He can point to it and make "fast and furious" seem legit.

Is that a suppressor in the photo?:eek: Doesn't that require a special federal tax stamp? Definitely not 'commonly available' in the USA.

It just needs the special OK from Holder

Give it some time. Remember how long it took for mainstream outlet to pick up F&F? There is no media conspiracy. They're waiting for more meat to show up to feature it.

The title is misleading. I opened this thread fully expecting Holder to be arrested...

hmmm....I'm not getting this. Drug lord gets busted with some "fast and furious" guns and you want the media to trumpet this? Wasn't that the "purpose" behind "fast and furious"? To follow them to Cartels and drug lords?? What, you want the media to say...Mr Holder was right?!?!?!? Even though he wasn't working with the mexicans or have any way to track the weapons?

I'm not shocked at the lack of media exposure. Just goes to show that they are no longer doing "unbiased reporting" regardless of which way they lean.

All that needs to happen here is a discovery of an RFI chip or previously unknown GPS locator with a sub micro power source for Holder to say, "My plan works, i had to dance around a bit not to expose this operation" and stfu to the whole Issa investigation.

Don't you think a few of these would have been planted by now. :rolleyes:

No. It is still a failure. If this guy was caught receiving F&F weapons then you could say it worked but this guy was caught with the weapons after who knows how long and how they found him.

I don't see anything "Key" about this guy.

The Mexicans arrest some Mexican Drug Cartel lieutenant and he has guns that were smuggled into Mexico from the Fast and Furious ATF gang. There were 2000 such guns and I assume all or most of them were sold to Mexican criminals. Why is it a surprise that they are found in possession of this Mexican criminal?

What is there that is unexpected or amazing about this? Why would this guy know anything useful about the ATF scheme? Why would this be newsworthy?

Am I missing something? Educate me?

lol, the media doing its job again. why would they provide any coverage for this when they continue to provide cover for their chosen one? If they cover this guy, they have to mention F&F, and may actually have people looking into F&F if they have not heard about it yet.

Think of it this way, if F&F was not a factor, and several firearms found with a major cartel figure was from a US retail store, is there any doubt that this would be trumpeted by the drive-by media?

My guess that in no way did F&F have anything to do with his apprehension. He is a gang member / drug lieutenant who finally got caught...and wow, a few of the F&F guns were in his possession. The sad part is that if the MSM does run the story, they will attribute this as a positive side to the whole scheme.
