• Cartel member says U.S. traded guns for information on Mexican gangs
• Eric Holder’s ‘Fast & Furious’ may be responsible for thousands of deaths
By Pat Shannan
A high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative alleges that the U.S. government’s Fast and Furious gun operation was not about tracking guns but rather about supplying them to a drug cartel—and in much larger numbers than Attorney General Eric Holder has admitted—in return for the violent gang’s help in wiping out rival drug runners.
Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla was the logistics coordinator for the powerful Sinaloa Cartel. He has been quietly held in various U.S. prisons since before the Fast and Furious story even broke.
Zambada-Niebla claims that the U.S. helped finance and arm the Sinaloa cartel through Fast and Furious in exchange for information that allowed the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies to take down rival drug cartels. The Sinaloa cartel was thus given a monopoly and permitted to traffic massive amounts of drugs across the U.S. border from 2004 to 2009. With the evidence and testimony produced from the ongoing congressional investigation into Fast and Furious, it is now apparent that the criminal activity continued for more than two years after the 2009 date of Zambada-Niebla’s claim of firsthand knowledge.
