#4 Bout goes to jail for selling guns to FARC but Eric Holder sells guns to Mexican drug cartels and he's still the AG. Sounds like we're making a much bigger deal out of this than Bout is worth. I mean, it's not like he's the only arms dealer who ever walked the planet.

Who are these "Forty Families"?
