Forbes weighs in on Operation Gunwalker
Story here. The silence of the mass media here in Tucson is amazing. Understand, the BP agent was murdered about thirty miles south of here. The gunwalking was ordered by the Phoenix office, about 120 miles north of here. One of the whistleblower agents lives right here. But newspaper coverage has been limited to one short story, a month or two ago.
Page one today: Giffords returns to Congress. OK, that's a proper headline story. Then ... July was hot, and homebuilders are taking remodeling work during the slump. Page two: library writes off overdue charges, kids getting free haircuts, city hires police, and US moves to dismiss suit over medicinal pot.
Page A 16: "Gun smuggling scandal spurs Mexican backlash" Ah, a little mention. The scandal itself is given one sentence. Followed by the remark that the guns walked only equaled 10% of those traced to the US. It does quote a security consultant in Mexico City asking what would have happened if a government agency had planned to run guns to the enemy in Afghanistan. A good question.
