Why is the ATF selling guns to the drug cartels of Mexico?

Update:

*google it if you don't trust foxnews, don't blame you, the story is everywhere*

Update 2:

Do you think Eric Holder planned and ordered the operation to go forward?

Update 3:

- AnyBody - that's not true, if you read any source it states they just let the guns go, and if it was for ANY profit, even ONE penny, then they are guilty of a felony, and furthermore if ANY crimes are committed with those weapons the ATF released into Mexico, including the murder of one of it's own agent, those complicit should be charged with murder.

    So Holder could use that situation for more gun regulation here in the US.

    The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today.

    "As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder told reporters.

    Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.

    They were trying to find where the guns were going. They put tracers in the handles of the guns to track them down to their destination in mexico. (Sting; trap; bait, etc.) In other words, an attempt to stop them, not purely to make money.
