Americans don't seem to be so fired up about Operation Gunrunner and Fast and Furious, but they should be. The federal government authorized the selling of assault weapons and other guns to Mexican Drug cartel operatives. This willful assault on American citizens violates the Constitution's preamble charging government to "provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty." The Fast and Furious strategy knowingly and willfully armed dangerous lawbreakers and enemies of America. Amid reports that Islam and the cartel are working together, the unthinkable question is: Is this White House purposely working against America and her traditional allies?
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Mexican police seized dozens of high powered assault weapons from a drug cartel boss's home in Ciudad Juarez, the city with the worst violence in the Mexican drug wars. These weapons were purchased through the Justice Department's Fast and Furious program. Hundreds of such weapons are being found, many are used in crimes across US border states, and one known US agent was murdered with one of these weapons. Attorney General Eric Holder has denied to Congress any knowledge of this operation, however, he introduced it to a joint US/Mexico Arms Trafficking Conference in Cuernavaca, Mexico on April 2, 2009.
The Justice Department's National Drug Intelligence Center reported in 2007 that Islamic groups were working with the Central and South American drug cartels to sell drugs and buy weapons in support of terrorism. The report mentioned a dealer who "brokered international multimillion dollar arms deals for Yemen, Kuwait, Syria, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, and Colombia and has supported several Middle Eastern terrorist groups including the Palestine Liberation Front, the Palestine Liberation Organization, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine." The PLO and the PLF are integral arms of the Palestinian Authority, which is America's dressed up governing body for a Palestinian State in Israel.
Connecting the dots: The Department of Justice had tremendous documentation and foreknowledge that Islamic terrorist organizations were dealing drugs and weapons with the cartels south of the border. These weapons were being used against Israel and by al Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah and others in fomenting terrorism. Yet, under the current Administration, the Justice Department elected to purposely sell assault rifles to drug cartels in some nonsensical scheme to trace the weapons. The result: endangering Americans, an American citizen murdered, aiding and abetting terrorists against Israel and America.
Jeremiah 17:9 asks, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Is this the case at the heart of America's government? And should Americans be furious, fast?
