Mike Vanderboegh and David Codrea have finally started to break the news of “Project Gunwalker” into mainstream media. They are true patriots for fighting for truth and transparency in government. The “Gunwalker” scandal alleges:
- ATF management was allowing potentially hundreds of semiautomatic firearms to be walked across the Mexican border in order to pad statistics used to further budget and power objectives.
- Mexican authorities were kept in the dark, and protests that they should be informed were overridden, first by the Phoenix ATF office, and ultimately by higher-ups in Washington, DC.
- A gun used in this operation was involved in a December 2010 incident in which a Border Patrol agent was killed.
David Codrea has an amazing guide to the story. Dec. 28 2010 through March 8, 2011 news is available here: http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-national/a-journalist-s-guide-to-project-gunwalker March 9, 2011 starts here: http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-national/a-journalist-s-guide-to-project-gunwalker-part-two
While the mainstream media is just beginning to report on the case, Mike and David are doing a better job than the mainstream journalists could anyway. Mike Vanderboegh’s blog is available at Sipsey Street Irregulars
