Lisbon, American gun dealers were 'under orders' by the ATF and the Justice Department to sell guns to straw purchasers who would then hand the guns over to drug cartels in Mexico. The main stream media still refer to this as a 'botched' operation despite the evidence that the program worked exactly as it was designed to. As part of a plan to 'brainwash' Americans into thinking about guns in a whole new way, guns were delivered to the cartels and turned up at Mexican crime scenes, making headlines and bolstering the bogus claim that American gun laws were to blame for the violence in Mexico.

They've worked quietly behind the scenes to build support among fellow Republicans, since it could ultimately face a full House vote.
CBS News has confirmed that House Speaker John Boehner, an Ohio Republican, was provided a 48-page long draft by Issa, who heads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
"While there are very legitimate arguments to be made in favor of such an action, no decision has been made to move forward with one by the Speaker or by House Republican leaders," a Republican leadership aide told CBS News.
