Law Enforcement Sources: Gun Used in Paris Terrorist Attacks Came from Phoenix



One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking” operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally, “off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm. Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.


It’s not clear if the agency, which is responsible for cracking down on the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, did this because the individual was involved in the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme. An ATF spokesman, Corey Ray, at the agency’s Washington D.C. headquarters told Judicial Watch that “no firearms used in the Paris attacks have been traced” by the agency.

It'll be a cold day in hell before the DOJ or ATF does *anything* that might tie weapons back to their gun running schemes.  Hopefully some enterprising reporter or pissed off Frenchman will do it for them.

Fast and Furious seems to have been buried.
This was the last I heard about it and it's not much.

Court reverses order keeping Fast and Furious docs secret

A federal appeals court has ordered that a case involving the release of some Fast and Furious documents should be returned to a lower court for "clarification."

The order gives investigators into the gun-walking scandal another opportunity to view documents that the Justice Department claims were under "non-disclosure rules."
The Obama administration refused to hand over the 32 pages of corresponding documents, claiming that they were under a “court-imposed non-disclosure” rules.

Judicial Watch sued. Another district court judge ruled in favor of the government in 2014.

In Friday’s ruling, however, the three-judge panel on the appeals court claimed that Jackson did not make an “explicit” request to “prohibit disclosure” of the documents when she ordered the mediation in 2013. Instead, she merely claimed that “I don’t want to know.”
