First, before we look at this bizarre and very troubling story that has already gone viral on the Internet, we need to raise a question that everyone else appears to be ignoring. Since when does the US Department of Education have a SWAT team at their disposal? Official answer: they borrowed it from the Inspector General. Okay.

Issa: Attorney General Holder knew about the sale of thousands of American guns :: 06/23/2011

House of Representative member Darrel Issa ( R ) has said that that Attorney General Eric Holder "absolutely knew" about the sale of thousands of American made guns to Mexican drug cartels. American fun stores were forced to sell the guns illegally so they could make their way to Mexico. Holder denied this but it is now understood he knew this and is trying to cover up his involvement. As a result, American border patrol agents have been killed with these guns and the likelihood that hundreds if not thousands of Mexican citizens will be killed due to the flood of these guns is very likely.

What 'Project Gunwalker' says about extent of gun trafficking to Mexico :: 06/23/2011

While the percentage of Mexican criminal firepower supposedly attributable to the U.S. civilian gun market continues to fall, U.S. gun shops (and gun shows) are still supposedly on the hook for 70% of recovered Mexican "crime guns" (at one time, the figure being tossed around was "95-100% "--a figure that steadily dropped as it became indefensible). That the "70%" figure refers not to the total number of seized guns, but to the percentage of those submitted to, and successfully traced by, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), is generally ignored. The fact that according to the Mexican newspaper El Universal , fewer than a quarter of the recovered firearms were traced , meaning that fewer than 16% of the total number of recovered firearms can be traced to the U.S., is definitely ignored.
