      As I understand the treaties that exist between Mexico and the U.S. The administration is legally responsible to inform the government of Mexico of any international policies and/or "operations" by the U.S. that will affect any citizen and/or property/ sovereignty of that nation?

      The obama administration FAILED to abide by the legal mandates of this treaty and as the ?president? of the U.S. this also falls directly on obama's shoulders?

      Since he failed to abide by even the spirit of this treaty, should he not also be held accountable to some degree for the 100s of Mexican Citizens who lost their lives to these weapons???

      Lets not have another "I dont recall…"!

      Isn't this a clear violation of the Gun Control Act of 1968's STRAW Purchase law which includes a 10 yr sentence and/or $250K fine?? Doesn't this law apply to the administration officials too??

      If we don't enforce gun laws that have been on the books for over 40 years, I don't think we to pass additional gun laws.

      Just what is being done to expose the full extent of the Fast and Furious? If this were a Nixon or a Reagon administration the press would be relentless and deafeing as would the Democrates.

      I think that Hillary and Obama have a hand in this as much as Holder. That is the reason for the hugh coverup. Watergate was a monor offence compared to this, which has gotten untold hundreds killed.
      And Hillary is calling leader of Syria a bad guy?

      Nobody has bothered to mention International Trafficking in Arms Regulations (ITAR) which prohibit transfers such as these. Each weapon transferred is a separate felony.

      and the government wants to take our choice of defense away!!!! when they have the power to hand out assault weapons to average everyday murdering criminals!

      The government is irresponsible to enforce the laws they put on us so they can create the illusion more laws needed! We are the government who has no reason to trust matters we can't in the hands of today's government control over our own. Jail Holder! No more laws are needed. CRIMINALS DON'T FOLLOW THEM!

      A psychiatrist was taking care of the clown who sent the psychiatrist the clowns future plans and the pathetic low grade psychiatrist sends it BACK??????!!!!!! And this is what professional is today???? Todays' society is filled with people with titles people aren't held accountable to but sure get the pay under those professional titles they don't have to prove to anyone! The neglect of his job means immediate dismissal and jail! Society is filled with false/wrong conceptions coming from the government people who don't represent us but still take matters beyond our control.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
