Possible development in Operation Gunwalker
The operation may have a link to a DEA operation that essentially recruited the Sinaloa Cartel as an ally against the other cartels, as part of which DEA turned a blind eye to its drug shipment. I say may have because the court pleading on which the story is based gives details about other cooperation with the cartel, but guesses as to whether the gunrunning was part of this. On the other hand, the Sinaloa Cartel does seem to have wound up with an enormous share of the walked guns.
Sister Toldja has more.
Can you say CIA during Vietnam????? I have no proof but I have heard stories.

No proof here, either, but a good story from last year is that Calderon had made a deal with one of the cartels to stay alive and get enough publicity from arrests and the like on other cartel troops that he could pretend to be making some headway.
Since Calderon and Obama are so chummy and seem to share mutual goals, maybe they are dealing with the same guys, and F+F was aimed at the other cartels as well as stricter gun controls in the US.
