Sometimes the news seems stranger than fiction.
Who could dream up a plot line like this?
Several law enforcement agencies of the federal government, including the FBI, Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, got together to hatch a plan to sell guns to Mexican drug cartel members – at least one of which was later used to murder a Border Patrol agent.
Can't be, right?
Wait a minute. It gets worse. It now appears the money used by the known criminals in Mexico was federal "stimulus" money.
I know. It's a nightmare. It's government gone wild.
Yet that is exactly what the aptly named "Project Gunrunner" seems to have been all about – with a scandal and ensuing cover-up big enough to bring down Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.
