‘Fast & Furious’ rifle capable of taking down helicopter found in 'El Chapo' cache

A .50-caliber rifle found at Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman’s hideout in Mexico was funneled through the gun-smuggling investigation known as Fast and Furious, sources confirmed Tuesday to Fox News.

A .50-caliber is a massive rifle that can stop a car or, as it was intended, take down a helicopter.

After the raid on Jan. 8 in the city of Los Mochis that killed five of his men and wounded one Mexican marine, officials found a number of weapons inside the house where Guzman was staying, including the rifle, officials said.

When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.

Federal officials told Fox News they are not sure how many of the weapons seized from Guzman’s house actually originated in the U.S. and where they were purchased, but are investigating.

Out of the roughly 2,000 weapons sold through Fast and Furious, 34 were .50-caliber rifles that can take down a helicopter, according to officials.

The operation allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with the intention of tracking them once they made their way into Mexico.

The operation became a major distraction for the Obama administration as Republicans in Congress conducted a series of inquiries into how the Justice Department allowed such an operation to happen.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt after he refused to divulge documents for a congressional investigation into the matter.

This is the third time a weapon from the Fast and Furious program has been found at a high-profile Mexican crime scene.

Obama has a history with drugs. This is just another chapter.

They sold 2000 weapons going to the drug cartel in Mexico...without the Mexican government knowing about it.

When they were exposed, Holder was held in contempt and Obama abused executive privilege.

When they were asked what in the heck they doing, their answer was it was a sting operation and they were going to track the weapons.

Problem is, that was a lie because they NEVER had a way to track the weapons. What were they going to do...tie a string on the guns?

They only recover the weapons after a crime or a criminal is caught in the act.

The Obama administration is a total criminal operation.

And Obama wants to take your guns to make it safe. What a dirt bag.
It's OK for the ATF to brake the law! I don't think so. How come none of them are under arrest or inedited?

Sounds to me as though Fast-n-Furious was a huge success! They sold the guns and tracked them down to the drug lords south of the border and now they know that guns from the U.S. wind up in the wrong hands. There may have been certain 'flaws' in the plan but what guberment plan works out perfect???

Well, isn't that we pretty much did with Iran??? Reports are already circulating that they've become very tight with the Koreans, more than normal lately. Must be their love of kimchee...
