We all have heard Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitan make the claim that 90% of guns used in violent crimes inside Mexico come for the US. Well, WikiLeaks proves this is a outright lie
…Comment. Claims by Mexican and U.S. officials that upwards of 90 percent of illegal recovered weapons can be traced back to the U.S. is based on an incomplete survey of confiscated weapons. In point of fact, without wider access to the weapons seized in Mexico, we really have no way of verifying these numbers. Joint efforts to develop intelligence that can serve the impetus for investigations and prosecutions of individuals or companies that market firearms to the cartels, will require Mexican and USG law enforcement agencies to share essential crime scene forensic information on a real time basis. Post law enforcement agencies will continue to work closely with their Mexican counterparts to break down institutional divisions and facilitate more information sharing on arms trafficking cases both among the Mexican agencies and with U.S. partners. End Comment
This ties directly to the ATF’s corrupt ‘Fast and Furious’ gun walking scandal. The Obama regime wanted to pad the stats in order to push for more gun control laws. This goes all the way up the chain of command. The entire administration put this scheme together and the truth is slowly coming to light.
