One of the many scandals perpetrated by Obama has just received a dose of Trump justice and it underscores how sincere the President and Attorney General Jeff Sessions are in reigning in the lawlessness and complicity of the prior administration.
On April 12, Fox News reports, a murderous Mexican national was seized by a “joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC).”
The thug, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, is one member of a five man Mexican cartel patrol that engaged a U.S. Border Patrol unit in 2010, killing Patrol agent Brian Terry in the process.
The tragic death of Terry was only compounded when it was learned that the gun that killed him, and the one fired by Osorio, was a gift via the Obama’s poorly planned and executed ‘Fast and Furious’ sting operation.
arried out under Obama’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), the Keystone Cop-like idea was to sell guns to Mexican cartel members and track the weapons into Mexico. The results of the program would have been laughably absurd if they were not so tragic.
Of the 2,000 guns sold, Obama lost track of 1,400 of them! That’s a 70 percent failure rate. When then Attorney General Eric Holder was grilled about what happened, he refused to provide information and was slapped with contempt of Congress.
Once again, President Trump is deftly cleaning up and righting the wrongs perpetrated by Obama and his minions. While this in no way brings solace to the family of Terry who are left victimized by the former president, it is a step forward in the right direction.
