While the investigation continues into the U.S. operation that helped send thousands of guns south of the border, Mexican lawmakers say they’ll press for extradition and prosecution in Mexico of American officials who authorized and ran the operation.
“I obviously feel violated. I feel my country’s sovereignty was violated,” Mexico Sen. Rene Arce Islas told Fox News. “They should be tried in the United States and the Mexican government should also demand that they also be tried in Mexico since the incidents took place here. There should be trials in both places.”
Murdoc doesn’t necessarily agree, but he’s going to insist that those involved get the full treatment here. He’s also prepared to be quite disappointed.
Mexico doesn’t completely understand Operation Fast and Furious, the American plan to help send assault rifles and revolvers to Mexico as a means of exposing the gun trafficking rings that operate along the border.
It ain’t just Mexico that ‘doesn’t completely understand.’

They told me if I voted for John McCain we’d see demands for the extradition of Administration war criminals. And they were right! They just didn’t tell me it was the war on guns. . . .
