Breaking the law pays, if you’re a criminal or the federal government.

The Associated Press reports that documents reveal how the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) worked with the “Beltran Leyva drug cartel and a cell of money launderers for Colombia’s Valle del Norte cartel” to launder drug money and lose it here.
“The group of officials conducted at least 15 wire transfers to banks in the United States, Canada and China and smuggled and laundered about $2.5 million in the United States. They lost track of much of that money.”
In Fast & Furious, federal agents lost track of firearms they forced gun stores to sell to Mexican cartel straw buyers, in violation of federal law. These guns went down into Mexico, where they were used to murder hundreds of Mexican citizens, as well as Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Now, the DEA “lost track of the money” they helped the cartels smuggle back across the border into the United States. Money flows north, guns flow south, people die, criminals get rich, all courtesy of the Obama administration.
Remember, this is the president who told the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence that he was working on some special gun control project “under the radar.”
Isn’t this curious?
