State Department and guns to Mexico
Kurt Hoffman blogs the latest CBS revelation, the State Department's "direct commercial sales program." It allows foreign government units to order guns (from what I can see, semi-autos) directly from US manufacturers. The authorizations have expanded from 2,476 in 2006 to 18,709 in 2009 (State won't reveal 2010 or 2011 figures). State Department audits found that around 26% of the guns thus shipped quickly wound up in the wrong hands. But it keeps on authorizing them.
So Hillary's cadre know they shipped about 19,000 weapons in 2009 and and about 4900 went astray...and they keep doing it while accusing law-abiding FFL's of illegal sales and bemoaning the level of violence. And they keep doing it.
How can Hillary NOT know about this? And she wants to be President? Whew.
