After decades of almost total silence, certain aspects of the national media have finally started to report on the fact that various aspects of the government have been the majority source for illicit drug dealing in the US.
Thursday was host to bombshell, “breaking” news as TheBlaze journalist Jason Howerton decided to take credit for a story that is neither breaking, nor surprising. At least, not for those of us that have been following this and closely related stories for quite some time.
According to Howerton, the situation formerly spun as a “botched” gun running scandal, known as Fast & Furious, that has since seen 5 ATF agents take the fall for, “isn’t what you think it is.” Instead, according to the journalist, “It wasn’t about tracking guns, it was about supplying them — all part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. government and Mexico’s powerful Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.”
