The more than 2,000 weapons that the Obama Justice Department allowed to be delivered to Mexican narco-terrorist cartels are thought to have been used in the shooting of an estimated 150 Mexican law enforcement officers and soldiers battling the cartels. Two American law enforcement officers have also presumably fallen prey to these weapons, along with an unknown number of civilians on both sides of the border.
President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice has purposefully armed narco-terrorist drug cartels that have been accused of bombings, ambushes, mass murders, public executions, and the assassination of police, politicians, and civic leaders.
Obama’s Justice Department armed the enemy of our neighbor and ally, providing enough arms to equip ten infantry companies, or two battalions, of violent drug dealers.
What did the president know, and when did he know it?
In a world in which we didn’t have a corrupt Attorney General, there would be people being charged under the False Statements Act. I don’t know whether or not the Congress can impeach a cabinet officer, but if not, they should demand Holder’s resignation and threaten to impeach the president if he refuses.

I should add that what makes this even worse was the apparent purpose of it — to falsely accuse American gun sellers of selling guns to the cartels to allow them to further restrict the right to bear arms of law-abiding Americans.
[Friday morning update]
This should end Holder’s tenure. But it probably won’t.
