Done here with a great deal of flair and style.
If I hadn't heard of Fast and Furious and learned the details before reading THIS, then I'd have to think that it was ok.
ETA: It occurred to me that IF the limitations and obstacles hobbling the agents are actually that big of a deal, then the fact that they continued shows, at best, incompetence (and, at worst, malfeasance).
I mean, if you can't do something because of those pesky laws, or because the rest of the justice system won't cooperate, then why continue, knowing the results will be bad? Knowing that you will be facilitating the movement of illegal firearms beyond the borders? Not to mention the fact that thy failed to inform, much less cooperate with, the relevant Mexican authorities.
