Anyone following recent blockbuster revelations concerning Operation Fast and Furiousthe Obama Administrations under the radar scheme to undermine the 2nd Amendment rights of the American peopleis aware by now that Attorney General Eric Holder lied during his May 3rd testimony before Congressman Darrell Issas House Oversight Committee.
When asked point blank by the congressman when he (Holder) had first learned of the Operation, the Attorney General responded, over the last few weeks.
But Department of Justice memos released on October 3rd by CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson clearly demonstrate that Holder had received WEEKLY briefings on Fast and Furious as early as July of 2010.
Over the past week, this little bit of perjury has elicited an exchanged of letters between Holder and Issa followed by the congressmans request that the Attorney General provide testimony at an upcoming House committee meeting.
But on October 13th, more time line history further disproving the claims made by Holder in his May testimony was made public by, of all sources, CNN News!
In March of this year, Barack Obama participated in a taped interview with CNN Espanol. Asked about Fast and Furiousa subject which had enraged the political class of Mexico, given that the Mexican government had not been informed of the massive Obama Regime initiated scheme of gun walking into their nationObama claimed very meager knowledge of the Operation.
Said Obama to the interviewer, I heard on the news about this story thatFast and Furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico and ATF knew about it, but didnt apprehend those who had sent it. (1)
Eric Holder hasthe attorney general had been very clear thet he knew nothing abut this. We [have] assigned an I.G., inspector general, to investigate it.
This information, complete with video, was presented by CNN reporter John King during his interview with Democrat Congressman and Obama/Holder apologist, Elijah Cummings.
And Kings question to Cummings following the video presentations of Holders May 3rd testimony and Obamas March interview was pointed: How did the President know about this in March and how did the President know the attorney general knew NOTHING (my caps) about this in March, when the attorney general says in May he just learned about it a couple of weeks ago? (1)
An interesting question, isnt it! And equally mystifying, how could the Fast and Furious ignorant Holder and Obama appoint Department of Justice Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar in March to investigate the case if Obama had only heard about it in the news and Holder hadnt heard of it at all?
The claims of these administration leaders dont exactly pass the smell test. And worst of all for the Regime, even CNN has begun to report news damaging to its beloved President! Seems Barack cant depend on ANYBODY these days, can he?
If I were Issa, I would ask the DOJ for the douments relating to WHO appointed the Inspector General and on WHAT DAY she was appointed. It is obvious from Barry's March interview on CNN that he was aware of Fast and Furious because he 'saw it on the news'. It is equally obvious that Obama said Holder appointed an IG to look into it. The documents showing when Holder appointe the IG should show he lied to Congress and should be charged with perjury.
WHERE IS THE GOP WITH SOME INDICTMENTS?????
Boehner has NO BALLS
How can we replace him?
‘And worst of all for the Regime, even CNN has begun to report news damaging to its beloved President! Seems Barack cant depend on ANYBODY these days, can he?’
Not true at all. The dem party can certainly depend on the republicans. It makes no difference whether Barry is weak going into the pres campaign as long as the dems can figure a way to get Romney on the GOP ticket.
Legs of a centipede bump
Issa is moving along at a steady pace, building a solid, unassailable case. I prefer completeness to speed, personally.
I ask, "Where are Woodward and Bernstein on this breathtaking scandalous story?"
Where are the Journalists?
Protecting the 0bama administration... duh!
He was “under the radar.”
“Issa is moving along at a steady pace, building a solid, unassailable case. I prefer completeness to speed, personally.”
Gunwalker...a many splintered thing.
Lie, blame, cheat, approve of mobs and riots.......
specifically?....@ the feet of OBama, licking his sandals / boots....
w/ the the excepts of Sharyl "the Brave" Attkisson (cBS Reporter).
Which means you got to watch out for pricks.
Just imagine what the media would be doing if this were a Republican president, and that tells how serious this matter truly is.
GOP = Gutless Old Party.
In this one, Americans are dead!
I ask again, "Where are the Journalists?"
I gues not only does Holder not read his own memos he doesnt watch TV or read THE WAHINGTON POST Febuary 1, 2011
....The AK-47s have become part of a multi-agency federal investigation code-named Fast and Furious.....
....Last week,(january 2011) U.S. Attorney Dennis K. Burke announced that 34 people had been indicted in five cases, breaking up a network linked to the Sinoloa drug-trafficking cartel in Mexico. The massive size of this operation sadly exemplifies the magnitude of the problem, Burke said...
Burke is a former top aide to Janet Napolitano, the former Arizona governor who is now the Homeland Security secretary. Burke is also CHAIRMAN of the ATTORNEY GENERALs ADVISORY COMMITTEE, border and immigration law enforcement subcommittee.
