House Oversight chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has been holding hearings on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ “Gun Walker” project, in which American guns were deliberately sold to Mexican drug cartels, ostensibly to entrap them on firearms charges. If the news were not filled with economic collapse, horrifying displays of cluelessness from the President, and Anthony Weiner’s underwear, this would be one of the biggest stories in the world. People died because of this unbelievably stupid program.
During the Issa hearings, it was revealed that ATF agents panicked when they thought some of those people might have died in a certain parking lot in Tucson, Arizona.
After Gun Walker automatic rifles were found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder, an agent testified that “there was a sense like every other time, even with [Representative Gabrielle] Giffords’ shooting, there was a state of panic, like, oh, God, let’s hope this is not a weapon from that case.” There was more panic when Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata was shot while sitting in his car in Mexico.
