Obama acts hypocriticallyPresident Obama must not know the meaning of irony or hypocrisy. He said recently while in Mexico that the United States was partially responsible for the amount of gun crime down there [“Obama: Security relationship with Mexico to evolve,” seattletimes.com, May 2]. This may be true, but certainly to a lesser extent than is often touted by those on the left who don’t believe in FBI statistics that show otherwise.

But for him to say what he did — knowing full well that his own program known as Operation Fast and Furious illegally funneled a couple thousand assault weapons to the drug cartel killers across the border, one of which resulted in the death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent and countless Mexican nationals — must be the new norm in hypocrisy.
