White House denies reportsObama knew of ‘Fast andFurious’in 2010
Daily Caller ^ | 12/4/11 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 12/04/2011 10:07:22 PM PST by Nachum

A White House spokesman pointed Friday to an account published by the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in its denial of three online claims that President Barack Obama was briefed about the failed “Operation Fast and Furious” gun-walking program in 2010. According to recently released White House visitor logs, then-Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler was admitted to the White House four times in 2010 between May 7 and May 19. The Los Angeles Times has reported that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives program was at its peak during May 2010.

I wonder what the real reason for this operation was?

If it wasn’t exposed by the agents who couldn’t stand carrying out their orders, then I don’t think using F&F as a tool against gun ownership and sales was the main idea just maybe a useful spinoff.

Must be another reason to go through all the trouble and take a chance of it being uncovered like it is now or are bright ideas just that stupid?

Can’t help but think that military heads are involved unless leaving your borders unprotected is SOP. The silence is deafening from a military strategy standpoint.

O’bummer has to low an IQ to hatch such a plan but weak enough to carry out orders dictated by others.

Why the GOP doesn’t just try to impeach the whole administration and leave it up to the Democrats to agree or dismiss it is beyond me.

What stinks is Obama has the Judiciary stacked to defend him.

“Must be another reason to go through all the trouble and take a chance of it being uncovered like it is now or are bright ideas just that stupid?”

See UN Agenda 21 (remove all (resistance) firearms
If it wasn’t for agents involved ,after realizing that such lack or action was immoral or illegal, it never would have been uncovered or come to light.

” Can’t help but think that military heads are involved unless leaving your borders unprotected is SOP. The silence is deafening from a military strategy standpoint. “

See UN Agenda 21, having to do with national soverignty, lack of respect for international borders.

” O’bummer has to low an IQ to hatch such a plan but weak enough to carry out orders dictated by others.”

He isn’t dumb !
He got elected to office and voted “ Present” , and his history, youthful developement , education , and political committment remained an ‘enigma’. He then sealed those documents , thus eliminating exposure to the document trail .
Furthermore , he surrounded himself with competant ‘hatchet-men’ who do his dirty work.

You’ll have to call out the exact directive in Agenda 21 that you are referring to since it began back in the 70s. The part about conserving and preserving natural resources along with protecting the downtrodden citizens of the world is a complete failure by just looking at China.

If you can’t find any history on O’bummer’s college education and work history then he obviously had help in hiding his past, one person is not capable of such a rise without handlers unless you think he is a Hitler type always in the war room directing traffic except he bows down instead of salutes.

Of course the Denier in Chief would claim he didn’t know about our selling guns to the Mexican Drug Cartels...And
such claim seems substantial because it is highly unlikely he
is aware of anything that is not scripted on his teleprompter.
And even 9/10 of the stuff he is prompted he is unaware of.
Other than golf, or b-ball in the drive way,or his revolutionary community organizing (i.e. his focus on being the mouthpiece or transmission belt to soviet communist dictatorship) Except for his jihad I doubt he is aware of anything.

The last time a President lied under oath, he was impeached. Let’s put Zer0 under oath. The last time it was Clinton lying about his extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky during the Paula Jones lawsuit. This time it’s about using the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for illegal purposes. How can we hurry this thing along?

Media Matters is correct. 

Barack Obama wan't briefed about "Operation Fast and Furious" in 2010. 

He ordered the operation in March, 2009.

On March 24, 2009, just sixty days after the inauguration, Deputy Attorney General David Ogden announced from the White House that, "the president has directed us to take action.... and Attorney General Holder and I have taken several new and aggressive steps...to fortify its Project Gunrunner... specifically to facilitate gun tracing..."

The video evidence!

No Doofer. Umgud is correct. It was a successful program up and until SipseyStreet started covering it. It was never intended to catch criminals...the program was intended to inflate crime stats with straw purchased guns from the US to propagate the 90% lie.

No matter how we feel about Newt, he is a great debater and doesn’t hold back. If he is the GOP nominee, he will rip Zero a new one. Ø won’t know what hit him. It won’t be the same as “debating” McCain this time around.

By the way, we ARE having roast goat for dinner, right?).

I know Impeachment is a dead end, BUT the appointment of a Special Prosecutor of Independent Counsel is amply justified and long overdue. If Holder will not do it himself, as he should, then interested parties may apply to a federal court to appint one. It is a recognized process. It is just that no one has the guts to push it. We have to push THEM to do it. Issa? Demint? Grassley? Buehler?

You’re correct so how can it be cleaned up when it has gone unchecked for years?

Anyone notice that immigration reform is always a hot topic but no one does nothing about it.If ANYONE in DC were serious about anything they would get rid of the Dodd/Frank bill immediately.
