News cycles in US media are unpredictable and erratic, subject to knee jerk responses to celebrity stories or natural disasters. A scandal that deserves more attention is Operation Gun Walker, also called ‘Fast and Furious.’
The operation conducted by the US government, presumably to track weapons in the hands of drug cartel members, reads like pulp fiction.
Under the table money for weapons purchases, bad guys who serve as government informants, and recorded conversations between government agents and gun dealers—these incidents surfaced in the months following the death of Customs and Border Protection Agent Brian Terry. The US Report was a lonely voice in calling attention to Agent Terry’s death, but that was before so many dark secrets in Fast and Furious began to emerge.
