Although some of this information is repetitious - it looks like Holder is getting away with murder.
It looks like Eric Holder does in fact knows how to step above the law and get off scot free from his personal involvement with the Fast and Furious operation. Eric’s first move to hold Darrell Issa and Chuck Grassley at bay was to start a DOJ investigation into the gun operation. Obama & Napolitano would describe this as a brilliant move since the heat in the kitchen was getting too hot for them.
Here’s what Eric did he gave Justice Department Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar her marching orders and told her to begin an investigation of possible wrongdoing in Operation Fast and Furious. Eric had one thing in mind – by ordering this investigation he could pick and choose what questions he would or wouldn’t answer when under oath. He avoided the legal necessity of providing documentation, because as he says the DOJ has an ongoing investigation at the same time.
We’ve suffered through the Holder “cat and mouse” game for over a year now and from all appearances he’s about to walk free as a bird. He’s protected himself with a legal gimmick that seems to be working – the fact that DOJ is doing their independent investigation has allowed him to black out the body of emails requested by Issa and Grassley. Each time he’s testifies under oath about the Fast and Furious operation has been nothing but an elaborate bunch of legal theatrics reminiscent of the movie Chicago.
Although, it’s been proven that Holder has lied under oath, that doesn’t seem to expedite Issa’s investigation; in fact it just delays proceedings. We’re actually witnessing those who are involved with this illegal operation getting one after another “get out of jail” free card.
Holder will testify one more time on February 2, 2012 and at this time there’s no reason to belief that he will be anything but a hostile witness. There are certain facts that are true and can be verified on the Department of Justice and CBS websites.
a. Obama specifically funded 10,000,000 to the Fast and Furious operation in 2009.
b. Holder and Napolitano met with Mexican authorities and elaborated on the operation in April 2009.
c. Holder was the one orchestration the operation and discussed publicly how he would enlarge the operation.
d. Napolitano & Holder ironed out the details of the operation as a team
e. When Issa & Grassley started the investigation into the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation, Holder and ATF removed the key people involved at ATF shuffling them off to Washington D.C. where they could be observed. Each one was assigned a new title and some received some perks.
f. CBS posted memos showing that Eric Holder was aware and involved of the operation. Here is the CBS site: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-31727_162-20115038-10391695.html?tag=contentMain;contentBody
g. Holder and Napolitano lied under oath
h. AIG warned Holder, the ATF, DHS of the many problems with the operation in 2010

There’s more to this story, but this is enough to demonstrate the uncanny way Holder remains the Attorney General of our USA even though he was a key player along with Obama in an attempt to take our gun rights away. One person funded the Operation (Obama,) Two people orchestrated the gunrunner operation (Holder and Napolitano) and ATF and DHS followed the directives from Holder putting the operation in full swing. Hundreds killed no one is responsible.
The Office of the Inspector General has a completed full report on their findings of the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation. The question is this – did the OIG share their findings with Holder, the DOJ, ATF and DHS in advance allowing them to get all of their “ducks in a row?” Will the OIG report come out before Holder testifies on February 2, 2012?
Did Eric Holder manage to sweep everything under the rug? What have we become – a Nation of corruption and murder or will the laws of our land prevail? Only time will tell, but we’re all accountable for the deaths of two of our Border Agents and hundreds of Mexican men, women and children and we must insist that those who are responsible be placed behind bars. Holder needs to be the first one in line to be removed from his position.
May God Bless Our Nation
