    This was a poorly conceived idea from the start. Let's send guns across the border and find out where they end up. Let's actually start enforcing the laws of this country. The government has a job to do, and from where I am sitting it sure looks like they are dropping the ball on all fronts.

    Actually this was a brilliantly conceived plan by the administration.
    Flood Mexico with American firearms, with the intention and hope that they would turn up at high profile crime scenes.
    At which point the adminstration points to the American firearms industry and firearm dealers and says "they are the problem".
    "All the guns going to Mexico are from the United States, we've got to do something to stop the wholesale murder taking place with American guns"
    Thereby making the political climate in this country much more suscecptive to the "Small Arms Treaty" being pandered by the United Nations.

    Hence the "under the radar" gun control the POTUS promised Sarah Brady.
    The ONLY problem with the plan was...they got caught...and now it's all about damage control.

    He moves to DOJ Forensics in a do nothing job that is fire proof if Obama goes away in a couple years.
    Also, he's close to Eric Holder who can keep an eye on him in case Melson decides to blab.
    Hint to Melson: You'll be fine if you don't rat out Holder. If you do, stay away from Ft Marcy Park after dark.

    Plot Thickens - Investigation Widens - The Game is Afoot

    WSJ reports
    Federal authorities are probing why the U.S. in 2010 let go an Arizona man accused of supplying grenades to a Mexican drug cartel, a case that played a role in the ouster last week of the nation's top firearms regulator and the U.S. attorney in Phoenix.
    U.S. officials said missteps in the case, which hasn't been previously disclosed, are being investigated by the Justice Department and Congress.
    The Justice Department inspector general and the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee [Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), and the office of Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa)] are investigating the release of the suspect, following his arrest in Mexico, free of the obvious charge of violating the law in the exportation of the "inert" parts of the grenades.

    The reveleations of this investigation more than those of Fast and Furious determined (acting director of the ATF) Melson's, and (U.S. attorney in Arizona) Dennis Burke's ouster.

    Senior Prosecutor, Emory Hurley, is emerging as who suspended processing of arrests in this and Fast and Furious leading to blunders under Obama in securing the border and fighting the drug war there and the personnel shakeup.

    DOJ is pointing fingers at the ATF, but the WSJ has emails implicating high-level DOJ approval and describing such detail as this cooperation with Mexican authorities to track the suspect to a Mexican grenade shop.

    Dennis Burke, is party to the email exchange and therein approves the plan: "Agree [with] the course of action as the variables play out."

    The "play out" of the "variables" in this operation included the suspect's slipping the ATF and Mexican Federales' tail - not to mention the fumbling the tracking of most of the 2,000 weapons of F & F.

    Mel,
    Today's revelations suggest we don't know the half of it. Can you spell H-A-N-D G-R-E-N-A-D-E?

    You're not gonna believe this, which means you probably should:

    Even while I was writing about it, I was scratching my head wondering what the heck these guys were thinking.
