Nadir Soofi is known as the man that was shot to death by local police in Garland, Texas as he was trying to shoot up a Mohammed cartoon terrorist attack. What is now coming to light is that the firearms used in the attack can now be traced to the failed government’s program of Fast and Furious.
5 years before the attack we would find Soofi in Phoenix, Arizona at a shop called teh Lone Wolf Trading Co. which was known by smugglers for selling illegal firearms. How did Soofi with his history of assault and drug charges procure a weapon? He lied on the form.
After a 24 hour hold (which was supposed to be a 7 day hold), the weapon was released to Soofi even after the Feds red flagged it. Little did Soofi know that he had just purchased a weapon in a secret government attempt to catch gun smugglers and drug cartel in a little known operation called Fast and Furious.
At the time, the Feds were only interested in smugglers and cartel. Not any more. Soofi, the son of a Pakistani-American engineer, is now known for his terrorist acts.
The following exert from the Chicago Tribune puts it best in order of events:
In May, Soofi and his roommate, Elton Simpson, burst upon the site of a Garland cartoon convention that was offering a prize for the best depiction of the prophet Muhammad, something offensive to many Muslims. Dressed in body armor and armed with three pistols, three rifles and 1,500 rounds of ammunition, the pair wounded a security officer before they were killed by local police.
A day after the attack, the Department of Justice sent an “urgent firearms disposition request” to Lone Wolf, seeking more information about Soofi and the pistol he bought in 2010, according to a June 1 letter from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, to U.S. Atty. Gen. Loretta Lynch.
Though the request did not specify whether the gun was used in the Garland attack, Justice Department officials said the information was needed “to assist in a criminal investigation,” according to Johnson’s letter, also reviewed by The Times.
Serial numbers of weapons used or any details or clarifications in the attack have been refused by the FBI. That just raises the suspicion that the weapons used were indeed from the bungled Fast and Furious operation.
It would appear that the Justice Department had a huge opportunity to stop further bloodshed in this growing failure. A few would say that this is a mere coincidence, but the body count of the failed Fast and Furious will only continue to rise…
