This scandal seems is getting so little attention in the national media, yet more and more information is coming out almost every day showing this scandal involves more and more government officials. I thought it would be good to have a place that people concerned about the potential risk to their gun rights this presents, can come and find information and discuss it.

I think it is time for congress to hold Holder in contempt. He continues to deny requests for information and is actually claiming he deserves credit for stopping the operation.

It seems the newest information coming out shows the primary targets were actually FBI informants, but that was unknown to the ATF.


"Reporting from Washington- When the ATF made alleged gun trafficker Manuel Fabian Celis-Acosta its primary target in the ill-fated Fast and Furious investigation, it hoped he would lead the agency to two associates who were Mexican drug cartel members. The ATF even questioned and released him knowing that he was wanted by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

But those two drug lords were secretly serving as informants for the FBI along the Southwest border, newly obtained internal emails show. Had Celis-Acosta simply been held when he was arrested by theBureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in May 2010, the investigation that led to the loss of hundreds of illegal guns and may have contributed to the death of a Border Patrol agent could have been closed early."
