They could have just shipped the darned things directly
The guns would have been traced back directly to the US government.

or laundered them through intermediaries.
That's what they were effectively trying to do here.

Why involve the potential security leaks, such as disgruntled agents and gun store proprietors?
You are going to have that problem no matter what method you chose.

Why risk having them turn up on home soil at crime scenes?
No matter what method they chose that was bound to happen.

At the very best, I assume incompetence and hubris. At worst, this was a very badly mishandled scheme to inflate false statistics.
True, we ARE talking about a government who thinks the solution to an economic crisis are the same things that led to the crisis in the first place.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.
