"If one were to visit, oh, say a dentist, you would see a dozen Federales armed with CEMTE type rifles, an APC and a machine gun nest."I received this in from a little bird down along the river just a bit ago and glad to hear tourism is thriving.
And speaking of the River of Iron, an AP report in The Monitor, in McAllen, Texas today:
IG: Border gun smuggling program lacks sharp focusReally speaks volumes about those damn gun-shows and store fronts down there that Barrack Hussein Obama, F-Troop, Holder, Hitlery, Mexico, and all the other lying bastards about that 85-90% coming from the Republic- however, they will say FoxNews is lying, but even the propaganda Commies at FactCheck.org know it is a lie.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal campaign to stop the smuggling of high-powered guns to Mexico is too narrowly focused on small-time gun runners and not the larger organizations suspected of arming Mexico's increasingly violent drug cartels, the Justice Department's inspector general said Tuesday.
For the last six years, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives working on Operation Gunrunner have focused most of their efforts on one- and two-person cases at the behest of supervisors who urge them to close cases quickly and move on, the report said.
"Agents we interviewed told us that after investigating the lower- ranking members of a firearms trafficking ring, cases often close and are referred for prosecution," the report said. "These agents stated that they believe this practice limited their ability to pursue higher level cases and resulted in cases being opened and closed quickly, with less regard to the significance or outcome of the cases."
More than 80 percent of the 1,015 cases sent to federal prosecutors between 2004 and 2009 had one or two defendants, the report said.
