Very Special ATF Agent William Newell is an “up-and-comer” within the ATF, and it was announced last October that he would be the ATF attache to Mexico.
That may have something to do with the fact that Newell could be arrested and potentially charged as an accessory to one or more of hundreds of murders for his role in helping run Operation Fast and Furious.
It’s relatively easy for the Washington Post and New York Times and the rest of the MSM to ignore Gunwalker most of the time. It would be damn hard to keep pretending it is no big deal if an administration official was arrested and charged for these crimes in a foreign country.
It is a simple litmus test for Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, and Barack Obama.
They should send Newell to Mexico if they feel Fast and Furious was legal.
It’s not like they aren’t willing to risk lives when it suits them.
