Biden's Admin to Sell $5 Million in Guns to Mexican Forces 'Accused of Murder and Kidnapping'
Remember Operation: Fast and Furious?
It wasn’t too long ago under the Obama Administration when they lost millions of dollars in fully automatic rifles and they ended up in the hands of dangerous Mexican drug cartels.
Simply go search “Operation: Fast and Furious.”
Now, Biden is in charge, and we’re getting a weird throwback from the past in one of the worst possible ways.
From the Intercept:
THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION is pressing forward with the sale of millions of dollars in weapons to specialized elements of the Mexican military despite growing concern from lawmakers over the recipients’ abhorrent human rights records.
If completed, Sig Sauer, a New Hampshire-based company, would sell more than $5 million worth of assault rifles and suppressors to Mexico’s navy and marines. Long considered by U.S. officials to be Washington’s most trustworthy ally in the war on drugs, the Mexican navy, particularly its elite marine special operations teams, has been linked to a string of kidnappings and extrajudicial killings in recent years.
Announced in July, the State Department’s approval of the sale came just months after 30 Mexican marines were arrested for orchestrating a wave of disappearances and murders in a case that has drawn international attention and condemnation. The U.S. government takes human rights into consideration in all cases involving the approval of gun sales to foreign security forces, the State Department said in an email to The Intercept. The department refused to say how those standards were applied in Sig Sauer’s sale to the Mexican navy specifically. Sig Sauer did not respond to a request for comment.
Is this good, bad, or all types of ugly? Time will tell…
