Guns sent to cartels by Feds are themselves the 'smoking gun'

In a curious twist to the Gunwalker scandal, or 'Operation Fast and Furious,' sources who have contact with Mexican drug cartels say that the types of guns sent to the cartels by the Feds in the ATF are themselves the 'smoking gun' which indicate malevolent intent on the part of the U.S. Government..
This raises a central question that goes to the very heart of Gunwalker--why would the federal government supply over 2000 guns to the cartels when those guns either were not even wanted or could be purchased on the black market for far less money than what was spent buying them in U.S. gun stores?
In answer to that question it is vital to understand the mindset of Barack Obama going as far back as his time spent in the Illinois legislature.
Obama has always been fundamentally opposed to the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. In 1996 he filled out a candidate questionnaire while running for the Illinois Senate stating that he supported laws that ban the manufacture, sale, and possession of handguns--the weapon of choice for most Americans when it comes to self-defense.
While serving as an Illinois State Senator, Obama also opposed a bill that would allow citizens to protect themselves with handguns against home invasions. The bill was approved, but Obama voted no to the right of citizens to protect themselves in their own homes.

It's refreshing to see someone else saying what I've been saying for some time now. People keep asking the question "why would ATF/DOJ deliberately send guns across the border?" But that's the wrong question. The right question is the one you're asking, "why would the drug cartels do this?"

The very fact that the cartels are buying guns at retail (and ostensibly at a greater risk of getting caught by the law), rather than on the cheap in the black market, tells you all you need to know.

The only reason the drug cartels would buy guns in this fashion is because they were asked to, by the US government.

And why would they cooperate with the US government in pushing gun control? A disarmed America is easier to victimize...a goal both organizations share.

This is as deep and dark a conspiracy as has ever been hatched...
