Just when you thought Fast and Furious could get no worse...
Comes word that, six months after it began, ATF apprehended its primary target smuggling ammo into Mexico, he admitted his ties to cartels, and they let him go. He went right back to smuggling, of course.
In his car was a ledger tracking payments to "Killer," in case there was any doubt about the type of fellow they were releasing.
UPDATE: here is the ATF report of the encounter.
How abjectly pathetic these guys are.

I'll say it again: if this administration had anything approaching a plausible justification for initiating this operation, and for how it went so terribly wrong, we'd have heard it long ago. Feel free to believe the worst.

The most astounding thing about this article is... It's in the Los Angeles Times! The LA Times, for cryin' out loud!
DOJ and the Administration are in really Big Trouble when the LA Times (!) will actually print something that reflects so badly on the current administration.
I may just have a case of the "vapors" going on here.
