Fast & Furious: "I don’t think it was a “failed gun-tracking operation” at all."
Glenn Reynolds and I are on the same page. Fast & Furious was not a failed gun-tracking operation because the guns were not tracked. The only logical use of this program was to provide proof that guns bought in America were found at Mexican crime scenes. It was specifically designed to "prove" that US guns were responsible for Mexican crimes. If the truth was otherwise, Fast & Furious was designed to change the facts.
THERE IS NO OTHER LOGICAL REASON FOR THE WAY THIS ACTIVITY WAS IMPLEMENTED.
I don't mean to shout, but the media's references to this as a "failed gun tracking operation" is nuts.
So now we can add a dead Mexican police chief to the toll of Team Obama's drive for gun control.
