Project Gunwalker

If you’ve not heard of Project Gunwalker, then it is imperative that you read the article linked below. This isn’t really making rounds in the news and should be. Even if you have heard the term before, do give the article a read as it breaks things down very nicely.

A brief extract from author Larry Corriea:

As a novelist, if I were to write a thriller in which a federal law enforcement agency knowingly allowed and even encouraged thousands of American guns to cross the border to arm Mexican drug cartels, in an effort to pad their stats to push for more gun control laws, even though innocent Mexican citizens and a US Border Patrol agent were killed in the process, and afterward there would be a huge cover up that went all the way to the President… I know some reviewers would say that my plot was silly, just some naive right-wing fantasy.

Yeah… You got me there. Surely no federal agency would be that stupid. Surely nobody in Washington would arm brutal drug cartels just to push their own politics.

Nope. That’s crazy talk.

If you’ve not heard about this, that’s understandable, because even though it is bigger than Watergate, it has been getting zilch coverage outside of a few media outlets. Basically, the BATF knowingly allowed criminals to purchase guns in the US to transport over the border to arm Mexican drug cartels. Not one gun. Not a dozen guns. Thousands of guns.

Read the entire article, plus David Codrea’s A journalist’s guide to ‘Project Gunwalker’ 3 part rundown of the Project Gunwalker scandal linked in Larry’s article. Pass it along to all your friends. Word needs to get out about this, and those responsible (no matter how high up it goes) need to reap what they have sown.
