Mexico, that bastion of law of order, wants to prosecute.
If the American courts will not hold the criminals who made this program happen, I hope the Mexican courts do.
It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

Actually, if Mexico can identify a potential responsible party, they would have pretty good grounds for extradition. Something the US Government could not just push aside.

If this was done intentionaly to secure 2nd amendment restrictions, it is most definitely a bigger deal than Watergate...
...hmmm, I wonder now what P. B.O.'s motive was for trying to stay the execution of a mexican national this week.
This should be down right ugly for the commie-organizer administration. Too bad that most Americans are more concerned about C.A.'s not guilty verdict.
