This just in from a DC "old hand" regarding the Dan Restrepo piece.

Mike -- one of your most insightful pieces to date, showing how "connected" this policy was, and how high up the food chain it was "managed/coordinated."

You're getting that PhD in Washington civics, the one not taught in any college or school.

Considering this fellow has tons more experience than me at this business, I take it as a high compliment. I'm off to the doctor now, and probably the hospital after that. I'll have my cell phone with me. And my lap top. Even if I'm hospitalized, I'll still be working.

Too bad, Gunwalker men.

I ain't dead yet.

Hey, Mike:

"PGR Is Negotiating Trial of U.S. Agents Implicated in 'Fast and Furious' Operation"

"MEXICO CITY. Mexican officials revealed today that the Attorney General of the Republic [PGR, in Spanish] is negotiating with American authorities to bring to trial agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for their participation in the illegal trafficking of at least two thousand high-powered arms into Mexican territory, as part of the "Fast and Furious" operation."


"Since the middle of March, the Assistant Attorney General's Office for Justice and International Matters initiated a petition for information with the government of the United States to identify those who participated in the operation...reveal the names of the agents and officials of the ATF who were involved in the transit of more than two thousand arms to Mexico."
