    Gun buyer sentenced in Fast and Furious case - CBS 5 - KPHO


    PHOENIX (CBS) -

    The man who admitted to buying guns as part of a smuggling ring, including two rifles found in the aftermath of a 2010 shootout that killed U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, was sentenced to 57 months in prison Wednesday as part of a plea agreement accepted by a Superior Court judge.

    Jaime Avila Jr., 25, was given the sentence after he pleaded guilty to conspiracy for acting as a straw buyer of guns for a Mexican drug cartel being monitored as part of a botched federal investigation known as Fast and Furious.

    Avila had admitted to lying that the weapons he bought were for him and not the drug cartel, and out of an original 57-count indictment, he was charged with only five counts.

    To this day no one has answered my question...and I have asked it on here numerous times...

    Holder claimed to not have known about F and F becuase there are many operations going on at once and he can not be aware of all of them.....

    Soooooo.....

    If selling arms to the enemy of an ally (Mexico declared the cartels an enemy of the Mexican Government several years ago), by transporting them over the border of an ally, without the ally knowing (deemed an act of war, by the way)..was not deemed as one of the IMPORTANT operations he shoiuld be aware of.....then what exactly would be the cirteria for being deemed important enough?

    Furthermore, who made the decision NOT to tell Holder about an operation that an ally could consider an act of war....and why wasnt his ass fired on the spot?

    Or...

    Is Holder a liar.
