In Billy Hoover's office today: U.S. Ambassador to Honduras Hugo Llorens.
My favorite Hugo Llorens quote:
"One can't violate the Constitution in order to create another Constitution, because if one doesn't respect the Constitution, then we all live under the law of the jungle." Hugo Llorens, June 2009, in reference to President Manuel Zelaya's planned referendum on a proposed constitutional assembly.
I guess we'll see if what Llorens thinks is good for the goose is equally good for the gander. Maybe he's there to give Billy Hoover a lesson on our Constitution. He could sure as hell use it.
The latest from Proceso Digital: ATF did not inform Honduran government of “walked” firearms.
Guns Trafficking: Defense and Security Unknown Operation in Honduras
What are the odds that the guns went to President Manuel Zelaya’s supporters?
That’s what I was thinking.
Llorens is the son of a Cuban refugee. An economist by training, he is not a rock the boat type. If Washington tells him to sneeze,he will ask how many times. He is not, however, a liar. If brought before Congress you can expect him to tell the truth.
I wouldn’t bet against it.
Rep. Darrell Issa: Its Hard To Believe AG Eric Holder Didnt Know About Operation Fast And Furious
If he was so engaged that he would fly to Mexico, do this speech, talking around Fast and Furious, its hard for us to believe that all throughout that year-plus process and even as this program fell apart and became a problem for [the Department of] Justice, that nobody should have told him something.
Fact: In a Jan. 25, 2011, Phoenix press conference, Special Agent in Charge William Newell was asked whether ATF agents were ever ordered to allow guns to walk into Mexico. He answered, Hell no!
can’t find a video of Newell at that press conference
