Responding to a reporter’s question on weapons’ regulations, Holder said, “Well, as President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons. I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.” February 26, 2009 2:28 PM CBS News
Holder just let the cat out of the bag to the horror of Obama and many Democrats. Here’s what we know happened next. Obama used 10,000,000 dollars of our stimulus money to supplement an operation called “Fast and Furious” (a gunrunner operation.)
Here’s the bill that Obama funded for this program H.R. 1 – 16. Here is the exact wording in the bill: 10,000,000 shall be transferred to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, salaries and expenses for the ATF Project Gunrunner.
Holder received the stimulus money and bragged about the Fast and Furious gunrunner program in a speech on April 2, 2009 in Cuernavaca, Mexico to Mexican authorities. Here’s a portion of his speech:
“Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail.”
Does that really look like the Holder and Napolitano are innocent victims?
For further information on the Fast and Furious Gunrunner operation – go to the DOJ website. OIG did a comprehensive study of the “Fast and Furious” gunrunner program and completed a very detailed report warning Holder, DOJ, ATF, DHS, FBI and Congress about the operation.
How sweet it is that Democrats did their own investigating on the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation. Democrats investigating the failed gun-running probe known as “Operation Fast and Furious” are laying the blame at the feet of officials in Arizona, saying in a new report that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have “obtained no evidence” implicating high-level political appointees in Washington. By Mike Levine Published January 31, 2012 | FoxNews.com I just gave them evidence, today!
Isn’t it ironic that this report came out just two days before Eric Holder’s interrogation again by Darrell Issa and Chuck Grassley about the gunrunner operation? For over a year we’ve listened to the lies of Holder and Napolitano under oath and now the Democrats magically cleared the upper echelon of wrong doing.
So the Democrats really think they’re smarter than Americans; their falsified report and information that just came out today is nothing more than an attempt to keep Holder and Napolitano in office. What more do we need to know?
Obama funded 10,000,000 specifically for the operation. Holder and Napolitano worked out the details on the Fast and Furious Operation and ATF made the program operational., as Allen West would probably say, The Democrats can mail their report to _ _ _ _.
We the people have had our fill of your corruption; we’re talking about an operation that is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Mexicans and two of our Border Agents.
May God Bless America
