Holder Claims Emails Using Words ‘Fast and Furious Don’t Refer to Operation Fast and Furious
CNS News ^ | 6/7/12 | Matt Cover

Posted on 06/07/2012 12:40:53 PM PDT by Nachum

Attorney General Eric Holder claimed during congressional testimony today that internal Justice Department emails that use the phrase “Fast and Furious” do not refer to the controversial gun-walking operation Fast and Furious.Under questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who read excerpts of the emails at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department oversight, Holder claimed that the phrase “Fast and Furious” did not refer to Fast and Furious but instead referred to another gun-walking operation known as “Wide Receiver.” However, the emails refer to both programs -- "Fast and Furious" and the "Tucson case," from where Wide Receiver

Holder: I thought the emails were about the Vin Diesel movie.

When will Obama be forced to testify? Does anyone believe Holder acted on his own in such a, what the word, outlandish enterprise? IMO, the Usurper-in-Chief know all about it.

“Oceania was at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia. In no public or private utterance was it ever admitted that the three powers had at any time been grouped along different lines. Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge, which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible” -1984

(I’m not sure how much grief we get for ‘guns walking.’ It may be more like ‘Finally, they’re going after people who sent guns down there.’)

First confirmation that Fast and Furious’s goal is gun grabbing. So basically Obama sacrificed some Mexican people (and one American) in order to eviscerate the 2nd Amendment. Since the media refuses to cover this outrageous scandal, I hope Romney is not shy to clobber Obama over the head with it.

There was some talk here substantiated with articles and links quite a while back that the name of the mission was played with setting up denial's just like this.

The point of it all was that they could say "oh, I thought you were referencing different program, not this one" because of the slight variation of names....gun walking vs gun running etc.....

At the end of the hearing Sheila Jackson Lee (nice eye makeup, BTW) turned over an email, asking that it be added to the record - presumably intended to cover Attorney General Holder’s lie. I’m not sure exaactly what it was ...

I don't doubt that. For instance; Jaime Zapata and Victor Avila were shot with guns "walked" out of a Texas gun shop. Today Holder tried to say, again, that Fast and Furious all started locally in Phoenix. So if you bring up the ATF walking guns from Texas and call it F&F the response will be "that couldn't have been part of F&F because F&F was a Tucson op blah blah blah."

But let's just deal with the confusion of F&F vs. Wide Receiver.

The Department of Justice ’ s Operation Fast and Furious: Accounts of ATF Agents

Four ATF field agents testify under oath that they "never even heard of intentionally letting guns "walk" before F&F."

‘Wide Receiver’ CI: ‘It had nothing to do with Bush or even DOJ’

New Documents Highlight Differences in Bush-Era, Obama-Era Gunrunner Investigations

Operation Wide Receiver vs. Operation Fast and Furious

He was saying that we had to work “fast and furious” to make sure that all elections in this country are fair to all parties.

Holder was involved chin deep in the Waco slaughter. For some reason I've yet to figger, not a glance was directed toward him over his involvment. Reno took the bit and pulled the cart.

Now Holder will be getting what he deserves. It's taking a long time, but he's gonna be remembered as the most disgusting POS that ever had a seat inside the DOJ. At least Potts and Horriuchi were stone cold killers and stood by that fact.

I know most of us here were not exactly thrilled that Romney got the nod....But, remember....it to Ronald Reagan a while to get to be THE Ronald Reagan. It’s just a gut feeling, but I think old Mitt will rise to the occasion and go after things like F&F, etc. One can pray.
