Federal government allowed Mexican drug cartel to import tons of cocaine into United States

Washington Times journalists Robert Farago and Ralph Dixon cite a “CIA insider” to make the claim that Operation Fast and Furious was a Central Intelligence Agency-orchestrated program to arm the Sinaloa drug cartel, a group that was also given the green light to fly tons of cocaine into the United States.
“In congressional testimony, William Newell, former ATF special agent in charge of the Phoenix Field Division, testified that the Internal Revenue Service, Drug Enforcement Administration and Immigration and Customs Enforcement were “full partners” in Operation Fast and Furious. Mr. Newell’s list left out the most important player: the CIA. According to a CIA insider, the agency had a strong hand in creating, orchestrating and exploiting Operation Fast and Furious,” report Farago and Nixon.
The program, with its designated cover of tracking where guns went so drug lords who purchased them could later be arrested downstream, was actually a deliberate effort to prevent the Los Zetas drug cartel from staging a successful coup d’etat against the government of Felipe Calderon by arming rival gang Sinaloa, according to the Times writers, a relationship that extended to “(allowing) the Sinaloas to fly a 747 cargo plane packed with cocaine into American airspace – unmolested.”
“The CIA made sure the trade wasn’t one-way. It persuaded the ATF to create Operation Fast and Furious – a “no strings attached” variation of the agency’s previous firearms sting. By design, the ATF operation armed the Mexican government’s preferred cartel on the street level near the American border, where the Zetas are most active,” states the report.
The notion that Fast and Furious was used as a cover through which to arm the the Sinaloa cartel would explain why the feds showed little interest in following up where guns ended up once they left the United States.
The Obama administration and the ATF claim that the Fast and Furious program was part of a sting operation to catch leading Mexican drug runners, and yet it’s admitted that the government stopped tracking the firearms as soon as they reached the border, defeating the entire object of the mission.
It would also account for the fact that the federal government failed to prevent Sinaloa importing tons of cocaine into the U.S.
Back in April, Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla, the “logistical coordinator” for the Sinaloa drug-trafficking gang that was responsible for purchasing the CIA torture jet that crashed with four tons on cocaine on board back in 2007 told the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois in Chicago that he had been working as a U.S. government asset for years.
According to court transcripts, Niebla was allowed to import “multi-ton quantities of cocaine” into the U.S. as a result of his working relationship with the FBI, Homeland Security, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
But the notion that Fast and Furious was solely an effort to isolate the Los Zetas cartel isn’t consistent with the fact that one of the gang’s kingpins recently told Mexican federal police that the group purchased its weapons directly from U.S. government officials inside America.
“They are bought in the U.S. The buyers (on the U.S. side of the border) have said in the past that sometimes they would acquire them from the U.S. Government itself,” Rejón Aguilar told police.
As we reported years ago, former DEA agent Cele Castillo has blown the whistle on how the US government controls the Los Zetas drug smuggling gang and uses it as the front group for their narco-empire.
With the gang having first been trained at the infamous School of the Americas in Fort Benning, Georgia, Castillo affirms that Los Zetas are still working for the US govern... in protecting drug routes to keep the wheels of Wall Street well-oiled. Castillo has gone on the record to state that the commandos are working directly for the US government drug cartel in carrying out hits on rival drug smugglers who aren’t paying their cut.
Fast and Furious may have served a dual purpose for the Obama administration.
Some evidence indicates the program was a plot on behalf of the administration to discredit the second amendment. While the feds were selling guns to Mexican drug gangs, Obama was simultaneously blaming drug violence on the flow of guns from border states to Mexico.
Even after the revelations surrounding the program became public, the ATF cited the trafficking of guns to Mexico as justification for a new regulation that has led to ATF intimidation of both gun sellers and purchasers, a policy which arrived months after President Obama told gun control advocate Sarah Brady that his administration was working “under the radar” to sneak attack the second amendment.
During a March 30 meeting between Jim and Sarah Brady and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, at which Obama “dropped in,” the president reportedly told Brady, “I just want you to know that we are working on it (gun control)….We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
The quote appeared in an April 11 Washington Post story about Obama’s gun control czar Steve Croley.

@Nota ikhan, you are right. The drugs were first coming from Central America in the mid to late 50's to begin the four stage process of destroying America. The first stage planned by the government working with the communist was the demoralization phase which was estimated to last about 25+ years, then the destablization phase, 10-15 years, then a crisis and finally the North American Union which was to be born by the fourth stage called Normalization. They are behind schedule since it was supposed to have happened in January 2000. So, drugs planned by the CIA (George Bush) in the last 50's as they were received on the oil platforms as stopover points to TExas and Arkansas. Vietnam was to also increase the drug imports among many other Illuminati/Vatican plans to set up the steps necessary to bring about the one world government. Afghanistan is also another source.
You always hear pilots talking about charlie.Thats how theyre bringing it in...
All the coke is going directly to wall street.Dropped onto the roof(the penthouse)by Apache helicopter.Then they snort all the coke and thats what they need all the money for.

Issa Grills Attorney General Holder on Operation Fast & Furious and Project Gunrunner
Holder say "never heard of f and f" LIAR!
"Operation 40" ring a bell. And the CIA's shadow government Master of Ceremonies is Bush41. Also please note that US Customs Service directors were involved. Hours or less before the jets hit the WTCs I and II on 9-11-2001, a demolition set-up was installed in WTC6, which contained the U.S. Customs Service. The U.S. Customs Service heirarchy had recently received an overhaul in central personnel by Bush43. The discovery that some group with the approval of the U.S. Customs Service had set a demolition system in WTC 6 that day plus incidents in 2007 proved there was a big mess on the carpet that needed someone else to clean up. They needed someone to be there to 'hold the bag' while the cabal made a getaway or renewed competent criminal leadership in the White House. Obummer was inadequate. Holder was left 'holding the bag.
Good journalism, Mr. Watson.
Operation 40. The Holder is left 'holding the bag'. Bush43 was too flaky. Watch his attempt of putting on a 'nonchalante' face at Booker elementary school after being informed of the second jet hitting the WTC. Poppy had to dump Operation 40 on Holder the handpicked AG and Obummer.
