Project Gunwalker

David Codrea at the National Gun Rights Examiner and Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street Irregulars have been on this story since the beginning. It concerns allegations that BATFE insiders not only looked the other way when semi-auto rifles were smuggled south of the border but were complicit in it. If that wasn't bad enough, slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry may have been killed with one of these weapons.

David's lead-in for the story:
We’ve recently discussed what I call “Project Gunwalker.” That title is a parody of the “Project Gunrunner” name the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has assigned to its southwest border initiative on U.S. guns going to the Mexican drug criminals, and refers to sourced information that the bureau has intentionally—and importantly, criminally, and with management cognizance—allowed guns to be transported across the border while keeping Mexican authorities in the dark.

We also touched on allegations regarding the gun used in the recent killing of a Border Patrol agent, and established some key questions for investigators to follow up on.

I must, of necessity, be cryptic in order to protect some insider sources who are putting their careers and potential freedom and lives on the line—that I can say this without hyperbole is something I believe will be borne out in the near future. The bottom line is, insiders are prepared to come forward. Not just with testimony, but with documentary evidence, and it looks like the trail leads to high places in the executive branch.

If this story pans out, I don't think the mainstream media can stifle it for too long. One of those reporters will have a Pulitzer Prize dancing in his or her eyes and will run with it.
