Why Gunwalker scandal is infinitely worse than Iran-Contra

In response to the continually unfolding 'Project Gunwalker' scandal engulfing the Obama Administration, some progressives have tipped their hand as to how they plan to frame the 'defense' of what is perhaps the most corrupt Administration in U.S. history. They compare the scandal to 'Iran-Contra' during the waning years of the Reagan Administration, as if by doing so the main players, including Obama, will escape accountability for their actions.
But the Gunwalker scandal is infinitely worse than Iran-Contra. Why?
The motivation for Iran-Contra was admirable although the mechanism for its implementation was flawed and skirted the boundaries of the law. The motivation for the Gunwalker scandal, on the other hand, is subversive and evil--to deliberately place U.S. guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels in order to claim that since most of the guns used by the criminals in Mexico came from the U.S., then the only remedy is draconian, sweeping new firearms control legislation and gun bans.
