Working "Under the Radar"

We've been told that our government is working "under the radar" to enact more gun control without real legislative action or authority. Is this what is going on with the ATF ... providing illegal weapons to drug lord gangs and criminals in the lower states and Mexico ... so that the weapons will show up in criminal cases in the US ... and the citizens of the US then be convinced that we need more stringent gun control legislation?

from Phoenix, AZ
PHOENIX - Weapons linked to a questionable government strategy are turning up in crimes in Valley neighborhoods.

For months the ABC15 Investigators have been searching through police reports and official government documents. We’ve discovered assault weapons linked to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ controversial "Fast and Furious" case strategy have turned up at crime scenes in Glendale and Phoenix communities.


Phoenix ATF agents recently testified during a Congressional hearing that they knowingly allowed weapons to slip into the hands of straw buyers who would then distribute the weapons to known criminals.

The strategy was designed to lead ATF officials to key drug players in Mexico, but some agents admitted they never fully tracked the weapons after suspicious buyers purchased them.

“It made no sense to us either, it was just what we were ordered to do, and every time we questioned that order there was punitive action,” Phoenix Special Agent John Dodson testified.

According to the testimony of three Phoenix ATF agents, including Dodson, hundreds of weapons are now on the streets in the United States and Mexico, possibly in the hands of criminals...

Sounds a little like "working under the radar" to me. Just connecting some dots.

Yea, I know, we'd never do something underhanded like this now would we?
