Obama Running Guns to Terrorist Organization in Mexico, Worse Than Gunwalker
Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:
Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.
Robert “Tosh” Plumlee, a former CIA contract pilot, told the Times he supported Jordan’s allegations, adding that the Zetas have reportedly bought property in the Columbus, N.M., border region to stash weapons and other contraband.
The U.S. Direct Commercial Sales program is run from the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls. It regulates and licenses private U.S. companies’ overseas sales of weapons and other defense materials, defense services, and military training. This does not include the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, which authorized sales to foreign governments.
“They’ve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era,” Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor.
“The information about the arms trafficking was provided to our U.S. authorities long before the ‘Columbus 11′ investigation began,” said Plumlee, referring to recent indictments accusing several Columbus city officials of arms trafficking in conjunction with alleged accomplices in El Paso and Chaparral, N.M.
Jesús Rejón Aguilar, the number three man in the Zeta’s hierarchy, disclosed last week that the Zetas bought weapons in the United States and transported them across the Rio Grande. Mexican federal authorities captured Rejón on July 3 in the state of Mexico, and presented him to the news media the next day. His recorded video statement was uploaded on YouTube.

Remember the video of the captured Zeta narco terrorist I posted a couple of weeks ago in which he claimed to get weaponry directly from the U.S. government? Yep. He wasn’t kidding.
- anti-aircraft weapons
- hand grenades
- grenade launchers
- assault rifles
- night-vision goggles
- body armor
Sold to the Zetas by the Obama State Department with the cooperation of the CIA, and once sold to Hizbullah, coming to a suburban Christian church near you.
I’m telling you, our government has already been overthrown. The whole mess is beyond repair. You can’t fire two or three guys and think that is going to make any difference whatsoever. Hillary Clinton should only ever see her grandchildren five minutes at a time through a bulletproof plexiglass partition in Florence, CO.
