In the newest issue of The Blaze Magazine, we have an exclusive excerpt from the new book by Katie Pavlich, "Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up" (official pub date: April 16).
As of January 2012, a year after the deadly operation was exposed by courageous whistleblowers and began to unravel, more than 300 murders in Mexico have been linked to guns the ATF, under supervision from the Obama Justice Department, put into the hands of North America’s most ruthless criminals. December 15, 2011, marked the one-year anniversary of the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Fast and Furious guns were found at the crime scene. February 15, 2012, marked the one-year anniversary of ICE agent Jaime Zapata’s murder in Mexico. The weapons found at his crime scene were also linked to gun-walking tactics. Hundreds more guns have shown up at violent crime scenes in America and Mexico.
Attorney General Eric Holder has admitted murders in Mexico and the United States will be a result of Fast and Furious for years to come. But still one year later, the American people, and the families of those murdered, don’t have answers. Who is responsible for this scandal? What happened?
