    FoxNews has just stated that over 1700 illegal guns were sanctioned for import to Mexico by the SA of the batfe. holder, pos moron that he is, denies any knowledge of what went on in his regime. obooba puts on his Alfred E. Neuman face and wants to talk about gardening. holder will be kicked out on his marxist ass when this is all said and done. It is alleged that these guns given to Mexican scum by the scum of the batfe killed "hundreds" of Mexicans. "Change we can believe in."

    Hundreds? Last I read Mexico was claiming 30,000 lives lost to the cartels since the ATF started selling guns (through dealers) to the straw buyers.

    Just going off the Fox report. That may well be true in total, but assigning what gun killed whom would be difficult.

    yah, I went back and checked my facts. The 30,000 is from '06 to the present.

    House Oversight Committee spokesman confirms ATF missed Issa deadline

    March 31st, 2011 1:45 pm ET

    David Codrea



    A spokesman for the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has confirmed that Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Assistant Director Kenneth Melson did not produce documents and information related to the unfolding Project Gunrunner story that were requested "as soon as possible, but no later than 5:00 p.m. on March 30, 2011" by Chairman Darrell Issa.

    Committee spokesman Seamus Kraft called this correspondent in response to a request made earlier today, and confirmed that "ATF did not meet our request deadline."

    Kraft advises that further developments to uncover the truth will be forthcoming.
