Wayne LaPierre on “Project Fast and Furious”

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre spoke to CBS News about reports that the BATFE “walked” illegal firearms into Mexico…

“They wanted to prove that there were guns flowing to Mexico, so they set up an illegal pipeline to send guns to Mexico,” speculates LaPierre. “When does it stop being law enforcement and start being a criminal enterprise? To prove there’s Islamic terrorists are they going to start manufacturing and selling explosives? It just makes no sense.”

You have to wonder what they were thinking at the ATF. Were this scandal limited to a few dozen guns, one might chalk it up to a badly run investigation. But somewhere along the way, as it goes from dozens to hundreds and then to thousands of guns, it stops looking like a simple screw up and starts looking like an attempt to manufacture a crisis.
