THE FAST AND FURIOUS SMOKING GUN
Fast and Furious, the ATF, "sting," operation that was claimed to be a way of following the flow of illegal weapons from The United States into Mexico but in reality only provide thousands of weapons to the Mexican drug cartels killing hundreds while directly being responsible for the death of a US border patrol agent who was kiled by a weapon supplied though the ill advised, illegal and frankly stupid operation.
Barack Obama has denied any knowledge of the plan until March of 2011 although the operation began in early 2009. Eric Holder denied any knowledge of it until April, 2011 just weeks before his first testimony before Congress during hearings on this ATF debacle that falls under the jurisdiction of Holder through the Justice Department.
Holder denied Obama having knowledge of this during his testimony yet Obama specifically said he knew as early as March in an interview with CNN after Holder's testimony. Yet, according to the video above both Obama and Holder are lying about their knowledge of the operation and the timing of their learning of it. The video above is a presser held by a Justice Department Deputy AG in MARCH 2009, when the operation started and in the video it is stated that the operation was begun by PRESIDENTIAL ORDER with the full knowledge and backing of HOLDER AND JUSTICE!
According to the video announcement, not only did both Obama and Holder know about this debacle from the beginning but the operation was approved by an Obama order and implimented by Holder's department with Holder''s backing. Which means not only are both lying but both allowed the flow of thousand of illegal weapons including RPGs into Mexico arming the drug cartels with enough to arm a small army directly causing the deaths of hundreds of both Mexicans and Americans and the border patrol agent in DECEMBER 2010 just before the ATF whistle blower blew the lid off the operation.
So the question begs to be asked, "was this an operation to push a political agenda designed to force a Second Amendment challenge resulting in increased gun control legislation due to the gun violence on the Mexican border?" And are Obama and Holder both guilty of violating the law and indirectly responsible for murder since this nightmare was allowed to continue with their personal knowledge also knowing that bundreds were being killed by thousands of illegal weapons flowing to the Cartels provided by the ATF by Presidential and Justice Department orders.
If any of the above is fact and I hope the investigation started by Congressman Issa will blow this debacle sky high, then operation Fast and Furious will make Watergate seem like a Sunday School outing in comparison for the Constitutional violations, illegal activities, knowledge of the President and AG, lying to Congress and the public by both and especially the deaths they would be responsible for by allowing this to continue as it did.
