When will someone be held accountable for this?

El Diego was, until he was taken into custody, the leader of the Juarez drug cartel’s La Linea — or “enforcement arm.” According to the El Paso Times, El Diego told Mexican authorities after his capture that La Linea’s mission was, among other things, to “eliminate the members of the Sinaloa cartel in Ciudad Juárez.”
Mexican authorities have alleged El Diego is responsible for the murders of at least 1,500 people in Juarez and Chihuaha City, Mexico, according to the El Paso Times.
Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric Holder, has not responded to a request for comment in response to this revelation.

It's incredible that the media will not report on this, no questions are being asked this administration.

And now Obama must grovel to the Mexican government and basically give up USA sovereignty to buy it's silence on this.

We should all know by this time that the slanted bias as hell media, will not report on the very things we need reporting on.
This is a travesty to the american public. For we have a right to know the truth of what is going on with this administration and lying president.

Protecting Obama at all costs does not help the American People, it actually makes the problems more progmatic, because they skirt the issues we should know about.

And bring about a false sense of positive vibes that all is well, when the media knows damn well it is not, why do you think they don't and refuse to report on anything negative about Obama!

I am fed up with the whole dang media bias. And wish this President could be truthful, and what Obama will we get.

Anybody who has a conscious, the media is just wrong.
Anybody who truly cares about this Country ought to be dang mad, at the media bias, and why no important questions are ever asked of Obama. Why, they are afraid they might get his true answers?

The two guys who came up with this iffy idea and it's terrible execution have already been fired. it was all over the news for days, even Fox. Where were you?

What more do you want? Do you honestly believe that anyone thinks Fast & Furious was a GOOD plan? Do you actually think that anyone approves of it's outcome?

if you do, you need to change meds.
The two idiots who cooked F&F up implemented it without notifying their superiors, and they have paid the price for their incompetence. Maybe you think that we should do like the Chinese, and put a bullet in the back of any public employee's head who screws up, but I don't. As rotten an idea as F&F turned out to be, those guys were doing their job, no matter how wrongly and poorly they did it.

If we go to shooting underlings, how long will it be before we start shooting their bosses? Then how long before we start shooting those who made the laws that started it all?

Do you want to live in that kind of society?

You think the two fall guys they fired make up for this nonsense? Border agents killed, 1500 people in mehico murdered by these weapons and your happy they fired a couple flunkies to try and cover this mess? Unbelievable.

And what evidence is there that those two were not responsible? Or that they withheld their crackpot plans?

C'mon, Chief. The tone of many of your posts seems to indicate you see lots of conspiracies all the time. Do those that don't match up with your own notions fail to count somehow? Or the conspiracies you don't agree with?

Anyone who works in the many fields that have to do with crime, drugs, and/or both always have people who want more than anything to come up with the One Big Plan that changes everything and gives them a big promotion. We have seen this in city police forces on up up.

The other thing we've all seen is those guys all equally try to cover their a$$ when things go wrong.

Am I happy these jerks did what they did? Hell, no, I'm not happy! What they did was not only the height of stupidity, it's inherent dangers caused the deaths of some fine Americans, and even more equally fine Mexicans. That's no cause for celebration by anyone on the outside of a mental ward.

What do you want to do as punishment of these men? I suppose an eye for an eye? Do you want to pull the executioner's trigger?

Uh, huh. That's some command of facts you have there, Chief. My response to you was factual. Your post was nothing but empty hyperbole.

Do you remember Custer? As I recall, he didn't acknowledge some facts either.
