Mexico sends US note over ‘Fast and Furious’ Obama-era gun-running scheme

Mexico’s foreign minister announced in a video posted on Twitter that he sent a note to the US Embassy asking for answers about an ill-fated gun-running scheme dubbed “Fast and Furious” during the Obama administration, according to a report.

“The [Mexican] government requests that it be provided with all the information available regarding the ‘Fast and Furious’ operation,” Marcelo Ebrard said, Reuters reported.

He cited former US Attorney General Eric Holder as saying Mexican authorities knew about the 2009-2011 scheme, which allowed people to buy arms illegally in the US and take them to Mexico, so they could be tracked to drug cartel bosses and lead law enforcement there.

The scheme hoped to limit gun smuggling across the border.

A review of the operation found that only 710 out of about 2,000 firearms were recovered as of February 2012, according to the Office of the Inspector General.

In 2011, Holder – who was the attorney general between 2009 and 2015 — had requested the OIG to conduct a review of the operation.

Last week, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said his government would send a note to Washington for information on the operation, as his regime digs for possible corruption under previous administrations.

It was the first time Ebrard or Obrador made direct reference by name to a key US official connected to the program since the matter resurfaced in Mexico a week ago.

“How could this be? A government that invades in this way, that flagrantly violates sovereignty, international laws,” Obrador said at a news conference, according to Reuters.

  1. The most despicable aspect of the Obama/Holder Fast and Furious operation is the idea was the guns would be “tracked” in Mexico. Now think. “Tracked” how?
    To be tracked, they had to be used.
    So the plan was to deliver guns so they would be used. The plan was for people to be murdered.
    Mexican people.
    Who the Hell would do this?

    2. No the plan was to support CDS in taking over the border plazas as the US State Department viewed the Zetas growing strength as a threat to border security and stability

      It was a CIA/State Dept operation

    3. That is exactly why the Operation was in place, to help the CDS fight the ZETAs.

  9. Latin America has been invading the us with drugs for decades... what’s a few guns matter??
    Obama is a dumbass so build the wall trump...
    More drugs equals more drug addicts.../
    Latin American drug dealers are a lazy group of parasites 🦠 for the world to deal with... that includes the italiano mafia as well...
    Make money in a respectful legal way...

    1. Americans are the biggest consumers of drugs and instead of that dumbass wall this country needs to fix its addiction and don’t blame someone for supplying the demand that the United States created!!! The US government is the biggest drug dealer in the world!

    2. 12:44 so they consume what you going to do about it. Get up and call your congressman.

    3. 12:44 if the cartels were not introducing it, people wouldn't get hooked. Don't blame the Americans.

    4. 1244 nobody demands to be a drug addict , scumbags that are pushing drugs onto the worlds youth created the demand. The power of the US dollar over a peso drives the dealers to sell where it is more profitable... NAFTA has to end or Mexico should be held responsible for abusing its privilege to trade with the USA... without the USA Mexico would be another third world country just like Honduras Guatemala El Salvador Nicaragua .... Spain with her search for gold really did screw mesoamericanas over...

    2. 4:07 Since FECAL and his allies are fucking around so much in Mexico with the mexicans and their duly elected president who did not need to steal the election, FECAL needs to be put in his place, and be outed for what he is/was, one more mexican traitor to his country who sold out to guns and drugs from a foreign country and who sold Mexico and the Mexicans and a their assets he could to any takers, just like EPN and salinas de gortari.

  20. "They caused murders in Mexico"? Last I checked Mexicans caused the murders in Mexico. There is no OP FF now, so your still have the audacity to blame Americans for Mexicans behavior? If i sell you a gun and you rob a bank with it, does that make me a bank robber? When you Mexicans stop saying stupid things like "If Americans didn't do drugs, we wouldn't .." and start taking responsibility for YOUR actions maybe you will start to see change.

    1. Your government meddling and becoming affiliated with cartels that meddle in the lives of innocent people is the reason why this is a problem. If you okay an operation that costed lives in foreign lands, then by all means eat the salt American because that was all you. This happened because your government decided to side with a cartel.

  21. Mexicans love to repeat that old BS "Americans are the biggest consumers of.." because it is all you have as an excuse for your behavior and easier than saying we are weak and and in love with Narco culture. You write songs about it, you make movies about it, you all love the flash of it with your gold plated pistols, leather boots and trucks. You even open Instagram and facebook accounts to show off the lifestyle you are proud of....and your saying a bunch of heroine junkies force you to behave this way??
