Questions arise about smuggled grenades as part of ‘Fast & Furious’

A U.S.-sanctioned “grenade-walking” scheme, similar to the Operation Fast and Furious “gun walking” scandal, resulted in the deaths of three Mexican police officers and four drug cartel members in a shootout near Guadalajara.

CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who broke the Fast and Furious story and has been doggedly pursuing that and the Benghazi scandal, said that at least one of the grenades used in the firefight was traced to Jean Baptiste Kingery, an alleged American arms trafficker. He had been smuggling into Mexico massive amounts of ammunition and grenade parts for years while under surveillance by U.S. authorities.

The same U.S. Justice Department attorney and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms official who oversaw the Kingery grenade-walking case also oversaw the Fast and Furious operation.
