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
ATF Death Watch 35: The Reluctant Attache
you have got to see this interview with Bill Newell.
Gunwalker Honduras, fyi.
Thanks for the heads up little jeremiah
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
is dat you?
I guess it is one use for the gun buy-back programs!
Just what is Demand Letter 3. Not sure yet..but here is another reference
here we go...how the ATF uses demand letters.
probably demand letter 3
Recently, ATF announced through the Federal Register our intent to initiate a new Demand Letter requiring the reporting of multiple sales of certain long guns by Federal Firearms Licensees, known as FFLs, in the four Southwest Border States. We took this step as a way to help gain actionable law enforcement intelligence which we believe will help reduce criminal firearms trafficking along the Southwest border.
Before we can actually issue the Demand Letter we must receive approval from the Office of Management and Budget for purposes of the paperwork reduction act. We expect to receive that approval in early January, 2011.
Does any of this spark your interest?
A man from Honduras named Albin Zelaya is in prison in Houston for horrible crimes. He is a member of MS-13.
“MS-13 gang members targeted by international task force”
Operation Castaway placed 1,000 weapons in the hands of MS-13.
Is Albin Zelaya connected to Mel Zelaya?
Were the 1,000 weapons intended for supporters of Mel Zelaya (before he was removed as president of Honduras)?
Was MS-13 behind Mel Zelaya?
I have been told by Hondurans that Mel Zelaya had drug flights out of his home town on a weekly basis toward the end of his presidency.
Did Obozo send weapons to Honduras for MS-13 to start a revolution there?
IF there is a connection (lots of coincidences exist) this one could be the Big One.
That’s a nice quote about the Constitution but as I recall Hugo Llorens parroted 0bama and Hillary and backed Zelaya.
I would guess fast and furious.
I wouldn’t put anything past this administration. What really gets my goat is that the MSM would deliberately cover it up.
It is like sticking a knife in Israels heart (Honduras advocates recognition of Palestine at UN)
