Fast and Furious, the gunwalking program by which the ATF allowed hundreds of firearms to get into the hands of Mexico’s violent drug cartels, has resulted in hundreds of deaths including at least two Americans.

CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson now reports on a new scandal: Grenade-walking.

According to a Justice Department “Significant Incident Report” filed Tuesday and obtained by CBS News, evidence connects one of the grenades to Jean Baptiste Kingery, an alleged firearms trafficker U.S. officials allowed to operate for years without arresting despite significant evidence that he was moving massive amounts of grenade parts and ammunition to Mexico’s ruthless drug cartels.

The gun battle took place last week in Guadalajara. Authorities say five members of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel used at least nine firearms and ten hand grenades against Mexican police. If one of the grenades was supplied with the help of Kingery, as believed, it adds to the toll of lives taken with weapons trafficked by suspects U.S. officials watched but did not stop.

Three Mexican police died in the firefight.

Much more at the link, including Attkisson’s video report.

The linked article has numerous mistakes, but two obvious ones I can point out is:

1 - Fast and Furious was never about toppling drug kingpins as there were never any administrative mechanisms in place to actually target, apprehend, extradite, and prosecute those drug dealers.

The Mexican government didn't even know it was going on at the time (unlike the operation done under Bush).

2 - The weapons were never under constant ATF surveillance. There were no RFID chips hidden inside of the weapons. There were no covert agents in unmarked cars tailing the suspects. There were no drones watching them from the sky.

Once the guns left the gun store and hit the sidewalk, for all practical purposes there was no surveillance of the weapons.

The only tracking the administration was interested in was keeping track of how many dead Mexicans could be connected to US purchased weapons in order to push for more gun control laws in the US.

I think this administration is pushing for a new National Motto:

"Let the bodies hit the floor! Let the bodies hit the floor!"

Marxism has always been murderous. There is no surprise here.

Hey now, "Bodies" was our unofficial fight song in the weeks immediately following 9/11. Don't denigrate it by mentioning it in the same sentence as the current administration. ;) [Cpl 'Monkey' USMC 99-03]
