Obama administration employee Kevin OReilly -- who congressional investigators called the link connecting the White House to the [Fast and Furious] scandal -- is back in the United States now after abruptly leaving his White House job to work in Iraq in 2011 after emails concerning him and Fast and Furious had surfaced.
O'Reilly left the United States in August 2011, shortly after his knowledge of the gun-walking program was publicized during a congressional hearing on July 26.
OReilly has so far refused to cooperate with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which recently threatened to subpoena him. He also refused to cooperate with the Justice Departments Office of Inspector General, which investigated the program and recently released its findings.
Both the House committee and the Inspector General's office sought to interview O'Reilly about Fast and Furious but the White House refused to grant him permission to be interviewed.
Fast and Furious, launched in September 2009, allowed about 2,000 U.S. guns to flow to Mexican drug cartels, with the apparent intent of tracing the guns. The ATF operation was halted in December 2010 after two of the guns were found at the murder scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.
OReilly recently returned to Washington, D.C., to work in the State Departments Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, a State Department official confirmed to CNSNews.com.

Obama’s war on Hispanics
His only chance is to turn on his buddies NOW, not later!
He better get out from in front of the Obama bus, and pronto...
Liberal appointees always do that.
So what ever happened to justice John Roberts. Is he still in Crete or Malta or wherever?
Notice that the terminology has changed from NORTH AMERICA to WESTERN HEMISPHERE. You will be hearing that phrase 'western hemisphere' quite a bit over the next several months.
