Stand With Arizona
The disastrous Obama Administration operation "Fast and Furious", which deliberately put guns in the hands of the Mexican cartel, exploded this week with new revelations of a cover-up, and emails which tie the scandal directly to the White House for the first time.
"Fast and Furious" was an attempt to intercept gun-trafficking that sent 2,000 guns to cartel operatives via straw buyers. Critics believe that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder saw the program as an opportunity to embarrass U.S.-based gun dealers, and help galvanize support for increased gun-control measures, while controlling where and how the guns would be "walked" across the border. But the operation went horribly wrong as the guns went unaccounted for, leading to the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry last December in Arizona, and the deaths of untold others inside Mexico - all using guns provided by the ATF. Holder denied knowledge of the operation at a U.S. House hearing on May 3rd, but subsequent revelations clearly show both Holder and the White House had been informed about this program as it ran off the rails.
Rep. Alan West has called for Holder to resign or be fired as a result.
Now it has been revealed that after the death of Agent Terry, Assistant U.S. Attorney Emory Hurley and then-U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke colluded to cover-up the fact that Terry was killed using one of the guns from 'Fast and Furious'. Evidence shows that Hurley - who knew "almost immediately" that the guns could be traced to the program, contacted Burke, and they agreed to cover it up:
In an internal email the day after the murder, Hurley, and then-U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke, decided not to disclose the connection, saying " ... this way we do not divulge our current case (Fast and Furious) or the Border Patrol shooting case."
As Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said The level of involvement of the United States Attorneys Office in the genesis and implementation of this case is striking. Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) are investigating the scandal, and AG Holder's knowledge and role in its implementation.
Grassley's office on Thursday also revealed that 21 more Fast and Furious guns have been found at violent crime scenes in Mexico. That is up from 11 the agency admitted just last month, and Grassley said he can only imagine the carnage that will be shown to have been made possible by the thousands of guns put into the hands of criminals by the Obama Administration.
Grassley and Issa also Thursday asked Justice for "interviews, emails, memos and even hand-written notes from members of the U.S. attorney's office" involved with 'Fast and Furious'. Thus far, Holder's arrogant department has stonewalled, deceived and provided censored testimony, when it even responds.
And now, for the first time, evidence that the White House - which had denied knowledge of the operation - did in fact know about the scandal. At least three national security officials in the White House were briefed to some extent on the operation:
EXCERPT...READ THE REST HERE
For F&F to “explode”, there would have to be an honest news media.
F&F = Watergate X Irancontra.
But it’s a ‘Rat administration, so the Pravda Press averts its gaze.
I call for Obama to be impeached if and when they find complicity at the executive level.
Eric Holder and Barack Obama should be in jail, but what did we get instead of justice once gun walker came to light?
We got “Special” laws that only affect Ca,Az, Nm and Tx’s 2nd amendment rights.
This administration is unjust and ham handed.
So ... who from the current administration to go to prison?
It’s a good thing Obama’s a democrat or our ‘free and robust’ press would’ve had a field day creating Super Watergate! Think of all the missed opportunities for a Pulitzer Prize . Damn you Obama for not being a Republican! LOL
We need an Outlaw graphic with the won’s logo.
(sorry, I’m incompetent too;)
Hopefully the lid will blow off right after the Dem Convention.
If it blows too soon, they could jettison BO.
Perhaps we soon see what just she was “taking care of” in the aftermath of the Terry Murder.
There was really weird behavior after Terry's murder including a reluctance to charge any of the Drug Cartel members arrested and trial balloons floated that they were going to release the suspects.
This behavior makes a lot more sense now that we know about Fast and Furious and that Terry was killed with a Fast and Furious weapon, and that the murderers were carrying multiple Fast and furious weapons. Also, we now know that the Obama Administration had cut a deal with the Sinaloa Drug Cartel to attack other cartels in return for freedom to operate their smuggling into the US.
Were the murderers of Terry affiliated with the Sinaloa cartel perhaps?
Trust me, the Marxists on Sixth Avenue in NYC are circling the wagons with their Washingon bureaus to mute this as much as possible.
If this were ANY Republican, this would be a big as...Casey Anthony????
Start impeaching these traitors. If the rats in the senate don’t go along, fine, they can hang alongside holder and obuma. Ditto the media traitors.
It’s either do it this way or clear field for CW II.
One way or another, we need to clean out the fascists and communists from America. An impeachment will expose the criminal Marxist syndicate for what it is.
I’m seriously thinking we’re not going to get a clean election in 2012. If that happens, we’ll have an illegal president sitting in the whitehouse who didn’t get enough legal votes to win, while on the outside we’ll have a legal president who won enough legal votes to be elected president.
That is a recipe for a second civil war.
Were this done by a Republican administration, the media would be leading the charge to call for resignations from the top all the way down to the assistant to the aide of the last Republican dog catcher.
Seems to me that congressional democrats need to start feeling some heat over this.
Even if they didn’t know then, they know now and they aren’t calling for answers from their precious president.
Well it’s not like they outed a dumb blonde!
It should be no surprise that a gangster administration is in league with drug dealers, prostitution rings, slavery and all other forms of organized crime. The MSM is complicit in this criminal conspiracy.
The MSM’s studied lack of interest in uncovering any wrongdoing by this, the most corrupt administration in our nation’s history proves that large, conglomerate media are not interested in pursuing news or justice. Their goals are purely financial and are driven by a commitment to maintain whatever status quo will keep the dollars flowing.
The news media has been completely taken over by small, independent organizations capable of digging into a story because it needs investigating. Nearly all investigative journalism now occurs outside the MSM. The MSM’s failure to report important information is of no significance because they are of no significance.
You should visit some of the left wing sites.
I swear they are blaming Republicans and Bush for this.
Thanks very much for posting. BUMP-TO-THE-TRUTH!
Impeach all the traitors, and defeat all those who pander to the Mexican invaders, including faux conservative Rick Perry, friend of La Raza and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). No conservative should fall for those who pander to our nations enemies, whether they be Mexico, the Peoples’ Republic of China, or any other hostile power.
If you look closely at this it is pretty clear the CIA was involved with it. It is unclear whether Holder approved this and CIA took it over or whether they forced Holder to go along with it.
“” If I were a criminal profiler, it wouldn’t take much to identify a CIA pattern here [with Fast and Furious]: A wacko, barroom commando, illegal operation that makes no sense whatsoever, run outside the control of law enforcement.” “
You’re absolutely right. No doubt. I truly wonder how the MSM look themselves in the mirror each morning. Are they so disconnected from reality that they don’t see their bias, or do they believe Republicans are so evil that the end (defeating them) justifies the means (Lying)?
How do we impeach one who is NOT legitimately the president?
And you’re right! If we even make it to the 2012 election, we will experience a down right filthy election!!
Holder needs to go.
CBS is reporting on it sorta kinda
F & F Goal: Supply cartels with US guns to then prove that tighter gun control in America is needed.
Result: People dead and ATF hiding their botch implementation.
Solution: For starters, Holder must resign.
Yep, DEFINITELY!! ;)
Is that silence I hear from the media about this?
“How do we impeach one who is NOT legitimately the president?”
Well, the best we can do, besides calling in the 2ndMarDiv, is to write articles of impeachment in the House, and pass it along to the senate.
That’s really good - however I was imagining the actual word ‘outlaw’ with his Marxist icon ‘O’ as the first letter.
And you have evidence of this???....
...or is it just speculation on your part?
This operation was NOT botched. It went exactly AS PLANNED. Guns walked and there was a body count, just what was “needed” by the scum at the top to get more citizen disarmament laws passed. Only when the field-level BATFags belatedly developed consciences after prior service Marine and Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered did it unravel.
There is no way the CIA didn’t know about this operation.
In his twisted mind he planned this force would report to him. For public consumption it would be for national security. The manpower would come from unemployed inner city youths.
Saddam Hussein had his Republican Guards.
The Soviets had their Secret Police.
Hitler had his SS.
Obama yearns for his “civilian defense corps”.
“Obama yearns for his civilian defense corps. ‘
God, I hope so. I’m looking forward to killing a thousand obuma pigs.
That pig wants a war, I’ll give him a war.
Holder needs to be gone...yesterday!
How do we know that?
1. Waco - almost 100 burned to death, including kids. Allegations were these church-go’ers were dealing machine-guns.
2. Ruby ridge - Mommy holding baby shot through skull by sniper. Son shot in back. Weaver was accused of hack-sawing ONE shotgun 1/2 inch too short.
3. F&F/Castaway - 200 Mexican cops dead, 2 US cops dead, 1 helicopter shot down, 1 casino burned. HOW MANY WILL GO 2 JAIL....?
Agree with you 100% —this was not botched AT ALL —they wanted this.
It was calculated and black-hearted.
I’ve almost never heard of something THIS evil.
..but you insist it's the CIA....and I'm really really tired of 'it's gotta be the CIA'.....
I don't appreciate your tone or direction......if you're making assumptions....verify!
“Ive almost never heard of something THIS evil.”
Research the Gleiwitz incident and the Reichstag Fire to see how Nazis operated this same type of evil scheme.
Look, you don’t have to believe anything. If you want to believe the CIA couldn’t have possibly known..go ahead.
I have dug enough..and know enough..that I believe they did know.
Oh, and the btw, I never said Holder didn’t know.
To me, it is ridiculous to believe that the CIA didn’t know about this..but then I have done a lot of research on the CIA and it’s various actions throughout the course of the years.
and for those that just can’t believe the CIA would know ANYTHING about this fiasco..perhaps you should read up on
General Ramon Guillen Davila...and you think they aren’t going to have their hands into the Mexican Drug wars??????
Perhaps there is some truth to the tales of Jesus Vicente Zambada Niebla
