It's been confirmed. Earlier today, I had read a report by Mike Vanderbough and David Codera that the DEA had "accidentally" uncovered some 5 dozen AK-47 style firearms in what was supposed to be a drug bust.
This has now been confirmed by another source:
DEA accidentally finds guns from ATF "gunwalker"
by Sharyl Attkisson, CBS News Investigative Reporter.
At least two suspects were arrested in the April 13 DEA gun bust. Since then, sources say ATF and DEA have been in a tug of war over who should hold the weapons. The DEA is said to want to keep the weapons (and its own case) separate from ATF controversy. Today, the Dept. of Justice, which oversees DEA and ATF, provided no immediate comment or information.
Do I need to say what happens if the ATF gets their hands on those rifles?
