If Fast and Furious had happened 100 years ago, we’d’ve been at war with Mexico by now

And rightly so; if the government of Mexico were facilitating the smuggling of arms into the US so they could be used to kill Americans, no president would stand for it.

The local ATF office was against the “plan;” especially since there was no possible way to trace the guns smuggled to Mexico once they left the United States. All the ATF could do was sit and wait for them to be recovered from the last crime scene they were used at.

The true goal of Operation Fast and Furious has to have been to create a situation where gun control was acceptable politically.

If that was the goal, the way in which the “operation” was conducted makes sense; otherwise, like ATF agent John Dodson told the committee,

I cannot begin to think of how the risk of letting guns fall into the hands of known criminals could possibly advance any legitimate law enforcement interest.

If we weren’t in the nuclear age, we’d be at war with Mexico right now. And it would be all our fault.
