While everyone is re-looking at Benghazi with the nice NYTimes piece written for Hillary, Glenn Beck offers up the news on Fast and Furious.
Apparently not only did the DEA convince the gun stores to sell to cartels, but they also were involved with setting up the scenario that got Brian Terry killed.
In his book, Dodson uses cautious language to characterize his account of circumstances surrounding Terry’s death, saying the information is based on firsthand knowledge, personal opinion and press reports. He asserts that the DEA had information about, and may have orchestrated, a large drug shipment through Peck Canyon that December night. He alleges that DEA agents shared that intelligence with FBI counterparts, who advised criminal informants from another cartel that the load would be “theirs for the taking.”
Dodson laid out a strategy in which federal law enforcement agencies, like the FBI, allow criminal activity in order to increase the clout of FBI informants embedded within cartel organizations.
“If they can get these guys (informants) in a position so they’re closer to the Tier 1 or Tier 2 guy (in the cartel), they’ll do it. They want to make these guys (operatives) rock stars,” he said.
The alleged border “rip-off” that ended in Terry’s death is one of these situations, Dodson claims.
Is this the war on drugs, or the war on guns or is our government just playing with people’s lives for fun?
