Jake Tapper is the latest to focus on what he called “a big scandal”. He did so on last night’s “Nightline”.
Het what could go wrong when the federal government, using tax dollars to buy and give weapons to the bad guys? Don’t they realize that people can get killed?
Fast & Furious is literally a killer of a scandal, drenched in the blood of victims of a federal government operation. Despite the best efforts of the Obama team to obfuscate, the truth is emerging, so that the media and even some Democrats are focusing on a full unearthing of the facts.
Tuesday, October 18 proved to be an important day in the slow march towards justice for the families of murdered federal agents Brian Terry and Jaimie Zapata, and the hundreds of Mexicans dead from Fast & Furious firearms.
First, the U.S Senate unanimously voted in favor of an amendment prohibiting funds from going to any future gun-walking type operations. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced the amendment in direct response to the 2009 Fast and Furious debacle. The bipartisan consensus prompted Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) to join Cornyn in his demand for answers from Attorney General Eric Holder.
‘Well I heard about it from the news reports. This is not something we were aware of in the White House and the Attorney General it turns out wasn’t aware of either.’
So this investigation will be complete, people who have screwed up will be held accountable but our overarching goal consistently has been to say we’ve got a responsibility not only to stop drugs from flowing north, we’ve also got a responsibility to make sure we are not helping to either arm or finance these drug cartels in Mexico.
Wow. President Obama wants the American people to believe he and his top officials were unaware that low level agents were implementing a program to curb the flow of guns from the United States to Mexico. The same officials, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who visited Mexico in March and April of 2009 “to make sure” weapons bought in the United States were not crossing the border.
And the original Obama intent of Obama and the regime, make a scandal so big that Americans everywhere would be crying out for more gun control, destroying the second amendment … couldn’t say. But that would qualify as my “under the radar plan”.
