Fast and Furious III – the bizarko continues.

As we’ve been reporting on previous episodes…”As part of an operation dubbed Fast and Furious, an ATF whistleblower contends at least 1,800 firearms illegally purchased in the U.S. were allowed to “walk” across the border…”

 

Well tonight, Mike has issued a “ten-thirteen” – a police radio call signifying that an officer is in serious trouble.  And Mike is close to a meltdown over this story.

Tonight, we’re rejoined by Bill Conroy from Narco News to go over the latest in the story, and to cover his latest:

US-Backed Programs Supplying the Firepower for Mexico’s Soaring Murder Rate

Felipe Calderón’s Drug War Has Become a Hot Market for US Arms Trade

We also cover this story, provided by Barbara – one of our intrepid listeners – on our Facebook page.

Sinaloa Drug Cartel Controlled and Protected by Both Mexican and U.S. Governments

    Mr Parry,,
    Your article in consortium is right about the mere fact conservatives feel they can begin over reaching is a good measure for how far the limiting of democracy in America has come..

    Without a shot being fired–America is slowly transforming into a more corporate friendly dictatorship that has always been preferred by wall st and Industry interests thru-out the world..

    The Afghan leader maybe called a president–but has the power of a dictator–Americans are going to have to face it sooner or later–Democracy is no longer profitable–freedom and liberty are now enemies of growth–State media is now calling attacks on the poor and elderly acts of bravery..

    Are the citizens of your America just a bunch of cowards? Are they going to let corporations kill American democracy?
    Without so much as a wimper?

    Do you chickenshits need the help of the french? At least they’d be trying to fight back===have Americans lost their pride?

    Do Americans even believe in democracy anymore? Is true the people have been neutured? or are they just stupid?

    Think about it!

    What’s wrong with Americans?
