Well, isn't this just wonderful? Apparent Gunwalking in Texas

Newly released documents indicate federal agents may have lost track of weapons sold to Mexican drug operatives in Texas.

Documents obtained by the Houston Chronicle noted that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had evidence implicating the alleged purchaser of a high-powered pistol but did not act in time to prevent its use in the shootings of two U.S. Customs agents in Mexico.

But fear not,
"This case has nothing to do with Fast and Furious," said AT spokesman Thomas Crowley. "There hasn't been any gun-walking in the Dallas division of ATF."
Oh, of COURSE not...

Do I catch a whiff of barracks lawyering here? Fast and Furious only applies to guns given to narcotraffikers through Arizona and not to Texas?
I have other examples of finer distinctions made in the English language by lawyers and others than are made by the general public who usually thinks like human beings rather than lawyers.
