The very controversial fast and furious gun running investigation.
May have a cousin in Florida operation cast away.
Instead of putting guns in the hands of Mexican drug lords.
A second gun running investigation is underway looking into whether we gave weapons to violent hunger and street gangs Florida congressman is called for the answers for answers from.
Attorney general Eric Holder here's what he had to say earlier on FOX & Friends.
And it could have been gun walking in.
Is -- as far as I'm concerned negligent.
Flawed and that again we gotta stop it so that's -- -- to do so.
-- former Republican congressman from Colorado Tom Tancredo mr.
-- credit -- and thank you for joining us again.
While we're on this eight -- story fast and furious now how does it appear cast the way we gave guns to get.
Another violent group.
Yeah how it -- you know -- hit.
Wouldn't you give anything to have been the fly on the wall in that in the room and they were discussing this originally somebody said you know what I think we should do.
I think we should facilitate the sale of automatic weapons.
To Mexican drug cartels and to MS thirteen down in Guatemala and other places and somebody else says hey.
I think it is so idiotic as to be almost unbelievable and to make you think that maybe just maybe there is another reason for this.
There there is something else they're trying to accomplish you may recall.
That when but when we started talking originally about merit you guns for coming from the United States into Mexico.
The administration both ours and the Mexican administration claimed that -- Totally bogus complete lie.
Is it possible that somebody in our government decided to.
You know make sure that that figure was right.
Can get sure that make sure those guns got down there so that eventually you can start talking about the need to control firearms in the United States.
I don't know but let me tell you this is the most.
Idiotic bizarre thing that makes you begin to wonder what could they really have been wanting to do I don't know I'm trying to figure out myself sorry I mean you've you've -- in Honduran drug gangs before in fact I think -- At one point pointed out that some of them were actually supplying guns to street gangs in America is that right.
That's exactly right and you know when when we felt when the as I said earlier that the governments of Mexico in the United States started to claim that there were 90% of the weapons.
In Mexico in the drug wars being supplied by the United States we found out that indeed.
It was about a much smaller figure may be -- less than the fewer than twenty are less than 20% of the guns.
That were actually involved in the drug activity drug war activity came from the United States most -- believe this -- not from that the Mexican military from people who had deserted.
The Mexican military's had over almost 200000.
Desertions in the last like eight at six years I think.
And and and most of those people by the -- took their guns with them because they're very valuable and they ended up in the hands of the cartels.
Also guns from Guatemala guns from the from the military down there and got into the hands of -- thirteen.
MS thirteen eventually made their way into the United States and for us today for the American government for this administration.
Or any administration.
To think it's a good idea to provide automatic weapons because why what we wanted to see where they go where the hell do you think -- got -- I hope you didn't -- so I'll look at -- cartels.
They're going to go to cartels they're gonna end up causing Americans death which they have of course Brian Terry.
A Border Patrol agents dead today dead as a result of guns supplied by ATF who's gonna pay for that.
What government officials has got a role for that death.
Well we're we're looking -- or staying out and follow the money we want to know who -- doing who knew what and when they knew by the way because a lot of lot of people in the very high up.
In the Justice Department say they didn't now and the specifically are you -- right say you're right it Congressman Tancredo again think.
