Guns Used to Kill Brother of Former Chihuahua State Attorney Linked to Operation Fast and Furious

By: Rachel Pulaski

On December 14, 2010, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot dead by a group of suspected drug cartel along the Mexican border in Peck Canyon, northwest of Nogales, Arizona. The guns used to kill Brian Terry were traced back to Operation Fast and Furious. In September 2011 the Attorney General of Mexico confirmed 200 murders happened in Mexico as a direct result of Operation Fast and Furious.

Now another murder connected to Operation Fast and Furious has surfaced. According to a congressional report released, Mario González Rodríguez, brother of the state attorney general of Chihuahua at the time, was also murdered by guns traced back to Operation Fast and Furious. The U.S. withheld this information from Mexican authorities for eight months.  

The video shows Mario González Rodríguez handcuffed and surrounded by masked men holding guns.

The El Paso Times reported:

“On October 21, 2010, drug cartel members kidnapped Mario González Rodríguez from his office,” according to the 2011 congressional report. “At the time of the kidnapping, his sister Patricia González Rodríguez was the attorney general of the state of Chihuahua.”

Mexican officials said Patricia González Rodríguez was already on her way out because the new governor had been installed and a new state prosecutor was going to be appointed.

“A few days after the kidnapping,” the congressional report said,” a video surfaced on the Internet in which Mario González Rodríguez sat handcuffed, surrounded by five heavily armed men wearing masks, dressed in camouflage and bullet-proof vest.”

“Apparently, under duress,” the report said, “(González Rodríguez) alleged that his sister had ordered killings at the behest of the Juárez cartel … the video quickly went viral.”

Chihuahua state Attorney General Patricia González Rodríguez denied the allegations of drug corruption and traveled to Mexico City to seek the federal government’s help in investigating her brother’s murder. She is no longer in Chihuahua, and reportedly left Mexico for safety reasons.

A video of Mario González Rodríguez’s “interrogation” by armed men was carried on YouTube. The body of the well-known Chihuahua City lawyer was found Nov. 5, 2010, in a shallow grave.

Then, Mexican federal authorities, following a shootout with drug cartel suspects, seized 16 weapons and arrested eight men in connection with Mario González Rodríguez’s murder.

Mexican officials submitted information about the weapons to the ATF’s e-trace system, and the ATF traced two AK-47s to Operation Fast and Furious.

The congressional report said that an ATF email indicated that ATF officials in Phoenix who knew the two assault rifles came from the controversial operation withheld the information from Mexican officials until June 2011.

These deaths are a direct result of the DOJ’s attempt to suppress second amendment rights by using Fast and Furious documents to push more gun regulations on the great citizens of this country.  We should certainly give Attorney General Eric Holder the credit he says he deserves for Operation Fast and Furious.

    wow.
    I knew .50 were involved but did not know that many were sent.
    even 1 is a game changer.

  • Obama and Holder need to be charged with violation of the Constitution, treason by cooporation with corrupt Mexican government officials who are trying to have removed our 2nd Amendment rights by collusion with the President and the DOJ head Eric Holder to undo our Constitution and overthrow the principals of which this nation exists. If that isn’t enough evidence that what Obama and Holder and others are up to, and we all know about Fast and Furious, Gun Runner BATF operations, for political purposes of using those planned operations to take our 2nd Amendment rights away through deception, and disarm American citizens which is what all Communist and Nazi, Socialist, Marxist takeovers of other countries must accomplish in order to fully take over a country and that is if the people aren’t armed.

    Issa needs to go ahead and act on the Contempt of Congress charges on Holder and make sure Obama is dragged in this situation, because I want to see Obama throw his buddy Holder under the bus like Obama has done the others who’ve helped him get to the office of the President. I want to see the look on Holder’s face when Obama claims he didn’t know anything about this, which he’s already done once before until it was found out that he was lieing. I guess he and Holder had a little heart to heart talk and reinstituted their life long relationship to stand by each others side no matter how bad it gets. Yeah, if that’s the case then I want Obama’s Presidency nullified and both he and Holder sent to prison! Or since Holder is actually a American citizen, put him in prison for the rest of his life, and deport Obama based on the fact that he is not a American citizen.

    Eric, AKA “the clueless one” HOlder should be doing hard time before this is over. Probably won’t , but he has certainly earned it. WORST ATTORNEY GENERAL, EVER. And that is going some to beat Janet Reno.

  • dba…vagabond trader

    So reminiscent of jihadi vids. I would not doubt if they were connected in narco terror ops.

    another story american tass will ignore.

    So long as the media refuses to investigate and publicize this scandal, this revelation means nothing. This individual’s death is just another number in a tally that much of the public is blissfully unaware of.

    So much for restoring respect for America in the world. I’m pretty sure arming drug cartels with automatic weapons that end up killing officials in a foreign government, so that you can embarrass the other U.S. political party on a Constitutional issue, probably isn’t going to earn you a whole lot of points with them.

    And Holder and Obama remain free.

  • The reason why Holder and Obama aren’t behind bars right now is proof that we the people have lost control over our government and it’s law making, law enforcement process. We the people have lost control over those elected and nonelected officials who are supposed to be in the government to either represent us, and obey the law. They are representing us, but they aren’t doing what we would want them to do, they don’t have to. And connected to that is the fact that Socialists have changed the way our laws are made so that only so-called “Democrats” can do anything or get anything done, and only when they are in control of the government. But that doesn’t mean that they have no power when they are out of control. “In control” means their party is the party who has the larger number of representatives in either the Congress and/or the Senate or both. What being in control means they have a free rein in making any kind of law they want. Democrats do that, and if Republican’s are in control they seem to make law according to our Constitution. But since Democrats are the ones who make more laws that cover everything imagiable that concerns human beings, they are constantly making law. And the problem with that is, every law Democrats make are all unConstitutional due to the fact that a law that says the government has the authority to take care of you. When there is nothing in the Constitution or the Declaration Of Independence where it says the government needs, has to take care of people with the authority the Constitution was given by our forefathers.

    What needs to be done is all the laws that Democrats have made since they took over our society back in the early 60’s, must be repealed or thrown out whole because they are not real laws but rather “decree’s”. A “decree” is a “rule” that looks like a law, looks like it adhere’s to the process in which laws are supposed to be made by, which in this case is the Constitution, and looks like it was done by the rules that our representatives are supposed to follow. Those rules are those that the body of the Congress and the Senate decide on so that they have something to go by that the Constitution doesn’t address in detail. So they have to have these rules that are called “Chamber Rules”. Both Houses have these, and if a representative goes against those rules he can be punished by the members and it can lead to his being expelled from the floor whenever the House is in session. That means conservatives who want good bills to be heard, they have to follow rules that have been made that don’t allow any bill that goes against Democrat ideals.

    That’s why we can’t get any conservative bills or amendments, and have better laws that are Constitutional to live by giving us more freedom, or amendments added to existing law that softens the impact of Socialist law taking our freedoms and liberties away. Democrats aren’t going to allow any of that to take place.

    That is the reason why we can’t get rid of these Occupier’s and that’s why we can’t procecute Holder, or force Obama to show us who he really is(like we don’t already know). But we can’t until we get a conservative President, continue to control the Congress and then take control of the Senate with a veto proof majority.

    Hmmm, if an election does

    Not remove the problem.

    The tree of liberty will be

    watered, for many of us will

    Have nothing left to live for.

    Take everything a man has

    He’ll gladly die for what he

    Used to have. So his children

    Might have more.

    Ever vigilant.
