So it Issa. Open the can of worms.....
The FBI certainly seems to have a profusion of folks “in charge”. So, I’d say: Charge ‘em.
Not all of them will be willing to fall on the sword for the glory of Director Holder....
Something’s been running across my mind ever since this happened. I can’t help but wonder what these two agents knew. Were they targeted for some reason? Had they objected too loudly? Was somebody afriad they would talk, or had talked to people?
Yes I know people are dying all over the place on and across the border and BPA’s are certanly vulnerable.
But in Brian Terry’s situation they are freaking armed with bean bag guns. And there were Mexican Military Officials at the scene when he was murdered on the US side of the border.
And Jaime Zapata was attached to the US embassy in Mexico (what did he know?) and was travelling thru San Luis Potosi a place where my son still goes on church missions to build orphanages. They shot Zapata four times in the chest, and Avila just in the leg. Like they were targeting Zapata.
It’s just fishier than hell.
Congressional spanking letter today from Grassley and Issa to Attorney Generla Holder - this is one for the display case in the Failed Obama Admin Memorial Library:
basically acuses Holder and DOJ of running a coverup and lying about it.
Nachum, Rowdy has an interesting thought.
Yes. Something smells. Usually when people come forward like this, they are going public to save their own skins. They are harder to kill that way.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Sipsey street should be listed as front page news as they broke this story where as the other NEWS didn’t.
Brian terry was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. One of them cases if it wasn’t him, it woudl have been someone else.
Zapata ... now that brings up some interesting .. VERY interesting questions.
I know. I have been following Sipsey Street for a long, long time. long before this. When the story broke there and the Examiner, it wasn’t until AFTER Fox and ome Conservative outlets had already picked it up, This has been going since Dec, 2010 CBS finally picked it up in Feb 2011. But CBS did NOT “break” the story except on the left stream.
This just in: The Washington Post is still dead, and Obama dithers, while Hillary gathers her skirts to protect HER butt even if nobody elses.
Shocker: ATF agent says the Dealer in the Gunwalker Scandal WAS A PAID CONFIDENTIAL INFORMANT! “Gunrunner TWO?”
Grab bag of Gunwalker & ICE stuff.
BREAKING STORY: CBS to take up Gunwalker Scandal tonight! Get the word out! Boost their ratings!
Vindication. CBS runs the definitive Gunwalker story so far: Gunrunning scandal uncovered at the ATF. “You can’t stop the signal, Mal.”
New Project Gunwalker allegations could expand Grassley investigation
BREAKING: CBS to report tonight on ‘Project Gunwalker’
CBS News video report: “Project Gunrunner” drug cartel scandal
Anyone who wants to be aware of the timeline for all of this, the links to David Codrea’s Journalist’s Guide in four parts are posted on my profile page.
Thanks for the link.
The footnotes reveal that Melson’s 4th of July transcript is at least 188 pages in length, and Issa only quotes a fraction of his testimony.
Be interesting to know how the complete transcript reads, right Eric?
ATF Project Gunrunner Is THE Smoking Gun...Obama signed 09 Stimulus Package Funding The Project!!!
I’ll bet that NONE of the FBI will fall on the sword for Holder. It takes some guts to do that.
Thanks. I had not seen the HR 1 document.
Posr #14 should read:
When the story broke there and the Examiner, it wasnt until AFTER Fox and some Conservative outlets had already picked it up that CBS finally did it.
