BATFE Continues Debunked "90%" Myth
(See earlier post "Myth of 90% Exposed)
ATF sends 100 agents to Houston to help stop flow of guns to Mexican cartels
HOUSTON — Federal officials say 100 agents, analysts and other personnel have arrived in Houston in an effort to stop the flow of firearms from the United States to drug cartels in Mexico.
Kenneth Melson, the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said Tuesday the agents and other support staff will spend the next four months in the bureau's Houston field division. They'll be developing cases against people and groups trafficking firearms to Mexico.
Melson says 90 percent of the guns that Mexican authorities have seized from cartels and other criminals and given to U.S. officials to trace have come from the United States.
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why a top ATF Supervisor went on the record to promote this already exposed blatant lie. It's clear who his political masters are and who he seeks to appease by repeating this falsehood (a lie previously even debunked by other federal agencies, prior Obama's Mexican trip!). Publicity stunts and cooperation by willing media running dogs promoting mind-control on the US public seldom gets more obvious than this...
