Armed American Radio to report during Sunday 6-17-2012 broadcast on possible high-ranking whistleblowers within the Department of Justice and revelations that a murdered ICE agent was investigating Fast and Furious.
Atlanta GA --(Ammoland.com)- Award-winning citizen journalist and blogger Mike Vanderboegh along with regular AAR contributor and award-winning journalist David Codrea, join host Mark Walters to blow the lid off of Eric Holders and Janet Napolitanos cover-up of Operation Fast and Furious on nationally syndicated Armed American Radio this weekend. (AAR is distributed nationally on the Salem Radio Network)
Vanderboegh and Codrea, the two men who originally broke the story now known as Operation Fast and Furious, will discuss claims from multiple previously highly credible sources that at least one, and possibly two high-ranking sources from within the Justice Department have come in from the cold seeking whistleblower status and hold the keys to the kingdom with knowledge of Eric Holder’s actions before and after ” the 4 February 2011 DOJ letter denying that the DOJ and its subordinate agencies knew about gunwalking.
In a second bombshell revelation, Vanderboegh reports that murdered ICE agent Jaime Zapata was investigating Fast and Furious weaponsdespite Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitanos sworn testimony that there was no connection.
Armed American Radio is one of the fastest growing talk radio shows in America, and the fastest growing pro-gun show in the nation.
AAR airs live nationwide every Sunday from 8-11pm ET, 5-8pm PT. Each week Mark Walters discusses...

I’m afraid we will probably never get to the bottom of this crap. I think knowledge of the entire operation goes to the top of this administration not just Holder but they won’t even get holder.
Not even that d***less weasel Boehner can ignore this. That contempt citation has to go forward now.
It looks to me like this whole thing is beginning to unravel.
Check this out...
And all of a sudden Holder is ready to have a sitdown with Issa? I think the wheels are coming off and Holder wants to cut a deal.
If I didn't know better I would think Bonehead got something to hide.
Agreed. This thing is about to blow.
I keep telling myself: Be careful what you wish for.
If it does unravel, what then? Does it embolden already eager Hillary supporters? Hope the GOP’s ready for the bait & switch.
So Nappy lied too. I’m praying these ‘whistleblowers’ give Issa what he needs. Wondering if the Talk Shows tomorrow morning will discuss this.............
Not even Hillary can infringe this bell. If this thing blows open before November, and I think Issa is playing his cards pretty well, then the Democrat party is doomed for a decade at least.
People will put up with a lot, but not with an Administration being an accessory to the murders of multiple Federal agents.
At least that’s my fervent hope anyway.
Never retreat from an opportunity to defeat evil.
To hell with Hillary supporters, to hell with the the GOP.
Probably just a stalling tactic to get them through November.
No way they'll touch it. They'll be too busy castigating that fellow Munro from the Daily Caller for "heckling" their precious Obama.
Well, well. It is my understanding that Hillary was IN at the very TOP levels of discussions on this F & F scam. She wants gun control and this was supposed to do the trick. Have so many guns cause havoc, that the knuckleheads in this country would rise up against the 2nd amendment.
She is just as nervous as Holder, I think. I read it somewhere on FReeper a while back. Anyone else see that and can bring that back to the board here? I think the bubbas and the moochers are backed into dueling corners, each having “stuff” on the others. Holder is the referee, trying to hold the house of cards together. But the wind is starting to blow. BUT..... let's not forget who we're dealing with. Clinton is an expert at getting himself out of a jam. Notice that Hillary has been either on the road or very quiet? Wouldn't you love to hear HER phone calls about all this or The Moocher and Bubba on the phone together?
Shoulda jeckled him as well.
Oh gosh, how did I forget that.../S lol
At any rate, it will be Father’s Day and probably nobody important on - I didn’t check.
Happy Father’s Day to you and all Freeper dads here!
Well, folks, if this is true, all bets are off. We knew Jaime Zapata was set up, but we didn’t know why. Here is the why. What we need now are indictments.
Here’s the lineup...
” David Plouffe, White House senior adviser” is popping up everywhere tomorrow. That guy is as dull as dirt.
Patterico is interested in a Laredo connection...
Yeah, nappy. He thought it up all on his own.
Well... I think they all have something to hide. They all 'knew'. Our elected officials don't live in political vacuums. They all work together.
They knew, the WH knew, the Mexican Government knew, their Presidente knew.
The DEA and ATF were on opposite undercover cartel operations, and they participated in Shootout at the OK Corral, but the unlucky Border Patrol Agents got caught in the crossfire. The undercover guys couldn't 'blow' their cover, so they had to shoot. They were using weapons that they were forcing US Dealers to sell to 'mules' to supply them to the cartels.
The plan is not to 'close' the border, but to make it impassable but to the cartels, and those that can provide enough bribe money. The US 'officials' get a cut of the take. Nothing will cross the border without a bribe and the permission of both the cartels and our 'rulers'. The Administration has decided to use Arizona (rather than Texas, because Texans shoot people) as their 'control corridor', and you know the rest of the story.
Or 20 Dead SEAL team members. Or Obama's gay choir friend, or maybe Breitbart and the coroner's photographer, or Obama's grandma, or endless others who 'got in the way'.
I am surprised more people are not being murdered over this. It is a real mess. Maybe, the people who would do the killing don’t even want to be involved.
Besides being criminal, calling it dumb is an understatement.
Hillary’s and the State Department’s involvement in Operation Castaway and the transfer of arms to Honduras needs to be brought out as well, just so she isn’t squeaky clean enough to pull off a Democrat Party coup.
It’s all about Hillary taking the nomination
They need to save themselves, NWO darling and Soros bankroller Hilldabeast will step grab the nomination and call for swift prosecutions of her own party members right up to zero but not including him. The second messiah arrives! Zero will move to lead the UN IN 2013 and work with hilldabeast and the next phase begins. There I fixed it. Todays conspiracies are tomorrows truths. I can have nightmares can’t I ????
Well above all else, even the law, ya can’t give the Dems any reason to call the GOP racists now can we???
Least that’s how boehner is calling it.
Was thinking “stalling tactic” too...But to get them past the Rat convention, so they are stuck with 0.
The question is, will anyone know about it?
I wish I wasn’t able to report that most of the people I know, know nothing of this whole story. Much less the ways Obama and his folks are involved.
The MSM can, and obviously will, cover up for him as much as possible.
At least we can be thankful the border is as safe as it’s ever been.
You know those annoying ads popping up on YouTube before the videos? Yesterday I was listening to one of my playlists, and TWICE in a relatively short span of time I heard a very strong anti-Fast and Furious ad. I was quite shocked about that. (As opposed to one Obama ad and one generic Democrat ad.)
Thank you for the link. The data are against the libs, thank God.
Oh, I’m sure Hannity will mention it in a few months. And maybe Greta after that, moaning about “justice” for the killed agents while continuing to hound anyone who bad-mouths Obama.
As for whether Boehner may be involved, I simply find it hard to believe that - given the Globalist immigration agenda that flies in the face of the will of We The People, and given the additional incentives of flagrant cartel money and threats to politicians - anyone much in any position of power is clean.
Thanks for the ping.
The doting court eunuchs of the MSM fail to notice...
The doting court eunuchs of the MSM fail to notice... HELLO New York Times... are you there?
I have no information to that effect, no. I dont know one way or the other, she replied to a direct question on any Fast and Furious connection by Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas.
Word games. Here's the little trick Napolitano, Holder and ATF are playing. F&F was an ATF operation run out of the Tucson AZ office. But some guns were walked out of Texas gun shops which puts them in the jurisdiction of Texas ATF offices so those ops must have had other names. So far I have not seen any reporting on what those op names were.
Armored SUV could not protect U.S. agents in Mexico
U.S. investigators recovered one of the military-style semi-automatic weapons used in the attack that killed Zapata.
The gun came from Texas.
Ballistic testing of spent shell casings and the raising of an obliterated serial number revealed the weapon was a popular Romanian-made AK-47 knockoff purchased at J&Js Pawn Shop in Beaumont, smuggled south to the Zetas by a methamphetamine trafficker named Manuel Gomez Barba, a U.S. citizen.
Worse Than Gunwalker? State Dept. Allegedly Sold Guns to Zetas
Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administrations El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:
Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administrations El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.
Theyve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era, Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor.
More about State Department involvement...
has sources claiming Obamas man in the State Department, (former) Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg, was the State Department operative who helped Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General David Ogden formulate the strategy that led to the tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious.
A little more than two years later, it was announced that Steinberg's time in the Obama State Department was over. From the New York Times, 30 March 2011:
Mrs. Clinton heaped praise on Mr. Steinberg, describing him as an indispensable partner. On every foreign policy challenge, big and small, he has helped formulate our policy and oversee its execution, she wrote. Mr. Steinberg, she said, played Oscar to Jack Lews Felix, referring to Jacob J. Lew, her other deputy, who left earlier this year to become Mr. Obamas budget director.

Indictments? (*Spits*) I’m ready to march up there and physically remove a few from office.
You're talking about BP Agent Brian Terry. These new revelations about ICE Agent Jaime Zapata do beg the question; was BP Agent Brian Terry set up for some reason?
There is reason to believe that Agent Terry's BORTAC team knew nothing about the rip crew and the rip crew knew nothing in advance about Agent Terry's team.
FBI Criminal Informant Complicit in Brian Terrys Death (PJM Exclusive)
Previously, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terrys death in Peck Canyon, Arizona was described as a chance meeting that led to a firefight: an illegal alien rip crew working for the Sinaloa cartel was hoping to find other illegal aliens and to rob them at gunpoint. Instead, they stumbled across a Border Patrol unit and murdered Agent Terry.
Last week, the Washington Times offered a new version of the encounter: they reported that the rip crew was not hunting illegals, but Border Patrol teams with the intention of engaging them in combat.
Sources now tell PJ Media that neither version of events is accurate: the rip crew was not waiting for a chance encounter with other illegals, nor did the members intend to engage American law enforcement agents.
The rip crew was in Peck Canyon that evening with the intention of stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment of which they had prior knowledge.
The rip crew knew to be in Peck Canyon that December evening because a CI working for the FBI found out about a smuggling run from the FBI.
A source tells PJM that the FBI knew from wiretaps that the CI was using their information to set up an ambush. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its own CIs and communications intercepts was also aware of the planned assault. Neither the DEA nor FBI warned Border Patrol about the expected criminal activity.
Multiple sources tell PJM that this third weapon disappeared because it was the weapon carried by the FBI CI who ran the rip crew. When it was recovered near the scene of the murder and subsequently traced by the ATF, it traced back to the FBI CI via the gun shop in Texas where it was purchased.
Neither agency bothered to warn Border Patrol to keep their BORTAC teams out of Peck Canyon that evening. As a direct result of this FBI and DEA failure combined with Homeland Security forcing BORTAC units to carry less-lethal beanbag rounds in some of their primary weapons Brian Terrys under-armed four-man unit walked into an ambush against a heavily armed rip crew, at least five of whom were carrying rifles.
Brian Terrys murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.
See my post #20.
Patterico is very interested in a probable Laredo connection.
Thanks for pointing me back to that link. This powder keg is about to blow isn’t it?
Sure looks that way to me.
Holder has been stonewalling all these many months and now all of a sudden he’s ready to turn over info and have a sitdown with Issa?
Something’s got that boy spooked. He’s looking to cut a deal to save his own sorry skin, IMO.
Who does he have in mind as the sacrificial lamb? Nappy maybe?
Now that would be some beautiful Kabuki theater for a change.
