It’s getting harder and harder to figure out what’s really behind the mess we know as Fast and Furious..
It’s become apparent that if Eric Holder didn’t know the details it’s because he positioned himself in a way he could honestly claim innocence from a legal standpoint. He all but admitted as much when he tried to debate the definition of lying with Wisconsin Republican Rep. Jim Sensenbrenne during Thursday(12-08-11) morning’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Fast and Furious fiasco. If he was being close to honest he wouldn’t be worried about what makes a lie a lie..
We know that so called whistle blowers are being punished by the AFT which comes under Holders Jurisdiction. We know some of the people who ran the operation have been promoted or transferred instead of being forced resign in disgrace.. That could be construed as buying their silence. Remember the operation was a flagrant violation of US, Mexican and International Law.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed with a Fast and Furious Weapon supplied to a Drug Cartel, that is indisputable. Last week we found out that both the FBI and ATF knew there was planned cartel ambush of another cartel in Peck Canyon that night. The ambushers planned on stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment they knew in advance, was going to be moving through the Canyon that evening. The advance knowledge was probably leaked from the FBI to a Confidential Informant. If either the FBI or ATF had bothered leaking the same information to the Border Patrol, which come under Homeland Security,
Brian Terry’s death could have been easily prevented. A phone call would have done the trick. We know Homeland Security Boss Janet Napolitano never asked Eric Holder WTF was going on, or why her people weren’t notified about the impending firefight.. We know this because she told said so–to Congress.
Yeah Right. She’d just had an agent killed.. She’s a Cabinet Secretary, Eric Holder is a Cabinet Secretary. They work for the same boss, but she never picked up the phone and asked Holder WTF was going on?
We know the Department of Justice had the court records of Brian Terry’s murder sealed. Why would they do that? Possibly the answer came Thursday when Holder declined to answer some questions.. because it would get him into trouble with the Federal Judge who sealed the records. Convenient Huh? Before I forget Eric Holder has been telling Congress he was waiting for a Investigator General’s report before taking any Legal or Personnel action in the case. Thursday he told the committee he’d never made a formal request to the IG saying he thinks, he just made a phone call
Now it wold be easy if it ended there There’s plenty of evidence of illegal operations, felonies, cover-ups, perjury (depending on your definition of lying) reckless endangerment (upwards of 300 dead). You know: It’s illegal but the fastest way to get to the bottom–make that top of this would be a little water boarding. No wonder the administration is opposed to it. Either way it doesn’t end with Fast and Furious..
There has been a lot of speculation that the entire program was an attempt by the White House to blame Americans and American made weapons for murders in Mexico.. Some of Holder’s testimony on Thursday adds credence to that. Democrats on the committee played along.. asking Holder is stronger gun laws would have prevented the Necessity Of Fast and Furious. There’s some compelling evidence that that the idea was seriously considered as Bob Parks reports here ‘Fast And Furious’ Was Really About Gun Control.. I could have accepted that as the underlying reason.. As Bob Parks points out: part of the liberal mindset is the accomplishment of there agenda always justifies the cost. They might have gotten away with it, if all the deaths had been Mexicans.
Obama is always pointing out how most of the killing in Mexico is done with American made weapons and how Americans are at fault. Fast and Furious, government supplied guns have upped the numbers of those weapons, getting them a little closer to the 90% statistic Obama is always throwing around, but not as fast as this: The Obama regime greatly increased legal gun sales to Mexico knowing 26% would fall into the hands of the drug cartels « America’s Watchtower Obama sold the Mexicans 19,000 weapons in 2009, since then the State Department has stopped releasing numbers.. But all indications are they at least as high and probably higher.. He did this knowing full well at least a quater of them would wind up in criminal hands and they could easily be used against American Law enforcement personnel.
Iran is conducting anti-U.S. operations from Latin America, including military training camps in Venezuela, and expanding its reach across the border from the U.S. in Mexico, according to footage unveiled late Thursday by the largest Spanish-language network in the United States, Univision.
The documentary showed a former Iran senior official accepting a plan to launch from Mexico a cyber war on the United States, one that would cripple U.S. computer systems, including the White House, the FBI, the CIA and several nuclear plants. The official, former Iranian Ambassador to Mexico Mohammad Hassan Ghadiri, was shown accepting the offer from undercover Mexican university students. A trailer to the documentary can be seen here.
The documentary also showed the undercover Mexican students presenting plans for the cyber attack to Venezuelan officials in Mexico. The Venezuelan official was very receptive to the plot,
Undercover journalists also confirmed Iranian-backed money-laundry and drug-trafficking cartels that are used to back Islamist networks and training camps in Venezuela and elsewhere, which exist to attack U.S. interests and undermine the U.S. in Latin America
So the cartels have Holder and the Iranians laundering money and supplying them with weapons From what the Foundry said I got the impression that Castro’s people were involved and at least some Mexican officials are on in on the deal.
Is Obama trying to curry more favor from the Cartels than they give the Iranian’s? What’s the extent of Obama or Holder’s involvement? Do either one of them owe the Cartels any favors.. We know they’ve both known some interesting people in the past.
I don’t know, can somebody help me out?
