Finally a GOP candidate says it. Of course Newt Gingrich will probably be called bombastic for saying it but it needed to be stated. FAST & FURIOUS: Question: Why on earth would the ATF--under the direction of the U.S. Justice Department- lead by Eric Holder AG of the United States--let walk 2000 semi-automatic weapons into the hands of violent Mexican Drug Cartels? a. To help the Mexican police and miltia fight the Mexican drug cartels? b. To track these weapons even though they had no tracking device in them? c. To set precedence in the United States for tighter gun control--and the banning of semi-automatic weapons? Finally Newt Gingrich says it: http://www.politico.com/blogs/burns...ing-race-card-in-fast-and-furious-108535.html There can simply be no other rational explanation for Fast and Furious. What Eric Holder didn't count on was a US border patrol agent getting killed by one of these weapons and 3 very brave ATF agents outing his justice department on this program. Unfortunately there are still 1400 weapons out there--and only God knows how many people these guns have killed.
