... Or higher. An informed examination of the facts leaves no other answer.
Now that the debt ceiling debate is over and done, lets turn our attention back to Operation Fast and Furious and its alleged sister operations. The multi-agency operation (or operations) of the U.S. government allowed thousands of guns to be supplied to Mexican drug cartels, while American federal law enforcement effectively provided the straw purchasers and smugglers with the cover to operate with impunity.
Despite the tens of thousands of words of outrage written about the Obama administrations botched Operation Fast and Furious, most of the focus has been on the horrific impact of the program as measured by the number of firearms smuggled over the border and the number of lives lost. Some attention has been consequently paid to the potential political and criminal impact of the operation and cover-up within the Department of Justice.
Sadly, the media has focused very little attention on the probable origins of the plot, or why Gunwalker was created as an adjunct of the longer-running and more successful Gunrunner campaign.
Of course, that may not be entirely true. The crack investigative reporters of print, network, and cable news organizations may very well have done the research and followed the various clues about the origins of Gunwalker to their logical conclusion, and then simply decided that the most probable story was one they not dare tell.
The story is this: no competent federal law enforcement officer would ever have concocted an operation as obviously doomed to catastrophic failure as Operation Fast and Furious.
Let us count the reasons why:
There is no way a politically experienced operative like Phoenix Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Bill Newell would have offered up such a plan merely out of the self interest of furthering his own career. Federal law enforcement officers never would have conceived of and did not support the implementation of Operation Fast and Furious. Agents fought tooth and nail with supervisors over the plot, as has been documented extensively in congressional testimony.
Operation Fast and Furious would not have come from agents in the field.
Operation Fast and Furious could not have come from regional SACs.
The one and only way that this multi-agency operation could have been organized and forced into action against the wishes and better judgment of seasoned professionals is through a top-down push from high-level executives within the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security, State, and Treasury, which all played a role in the plot. Four executive branch departments, led by cabinet-level political appointees loyal to the Obama administration, worked on an operation together that was explicitly doomed to failure from the outset.
Was the goal of the project ever law enforcement?
The most logical explanation for Fast and Furious and related operations was that it was not a law enforcement operation, but a political operation designed to advance an anti-gun political agenda that Attorney General Eric Holder and President Barack Obama have been pursuing since the beginning of this presidency.
This explosive scandal at the heart of Gunwalker isnt a matter of what did he know and when did he know it? It now instead seems to be a matter of who will come forward, and how much evidence will they provide to implicate officials at the highest levels of a lawless government.
What can Issa and the House do to move this along rapidly..?
...Telepathic ping? Thanks...
So, what kind of group would do that? Could it be one of the drug cartels? Could it be a separate body of cartel related criminals actually "owned" by a cartel "organized crime commission"?
Even the Mafia didn't succeed at government penetration and they were more culturally aware of how that might be done in the United States.
More likely it's a political organization ~ maybe some leftover Nazi party guys (at a generation removed) down in Brazil, Paraguay or Argentina. Or, maybe the organization derives from the LEFT!?!?!?!? Like maybe these people are Commies.
Looking over the objective, public Obama Regime there are plenty of folks there with Communist party relationships ~ and right off hand I doubt anybody in that Regime has any Nazis in the stable.
So, let's say it's a Communist party organization element with its own command structure ~ maybe even a half dozen cells ~ one cell in each agency ~ with limited official communications among the cells.
I think they could pull it off until they got caught.
They just got caught!
Holder needs to resign. He’s a disgrace.
In order for funding to be tranferred between agencies, (which it was,) absolutely requires the signature of the pos-ident via executive order. The only agency that can receive funds from another agency BY LAW is the CIA.
I bet so many of our "leaders" are bought off at local, State and Federal levels by drug money that infiltration isn't even necessary. They just call the correct office and issue orders.
If a Republican were in office we would hear nothing but Gunwalker 24/7.
We keep saying that——but Got damnit it-—it is the truth,
We do not have a free press in this country. We have a DNC controlled press.
This thing is big enough to put Obama under the jail, but it is being ignored. Soon Issa will become tired of it and it will die. Obama knows it, Holder knows it, I know it, and the DNC media knows it, anyone thinking different is only fooling themselves.
The Media doesn’t report it because they want guns banned, just as Obama does.
When you kill God the Government becomes god, When you disarm the people the Government is no longer in the hands of the people, we are slaves.
Look around-—this is the agenda.
Holder really needs to go to Leavenworth prison and Barry needs to be his cellmate. They are both criminals.
Have you noticed that Fox is using the words “Fast and Furious” on almost every story they have been covering? Even the debt thing, they are calling the responses Fast and Furious.
I have noticed this for the last entire week. They stick it in wherever they can.
I think you’re looking for an outside source causing this trouble. As high up as the Communists placed their agents in our government in the 40s and 50s, that would pale in comparison to what you’re suggesting.
Project GunRunner, et al, resulted in the deaths (and will result in further deaths) of a lot of Mexicans and some Americans. I can’t figure how this furthers the Communists in their desire to take over the world.
It does, however, fit into the plans of Liberals to disarm Americans. Remember, this story started with administration officials reporting that guns used by the cartels were traced back to the U.S.. If GunRunner hadn’t been exposed, the story would still be “the guns came from our lax gun control.”
Barak Obama, in the White House, with an Executive Order.
All I have here is a few cold beers. I want some of what you're having! ;-)
Uh, no. That's the most palatable explanation for but only half the revolutionary communist modus operendi. To obtain a "dictatorship of the proletariat" one must disarm the bourgeois while arming the proles. See tag line.
I can’t find the article now, but I think I read one here this morning that said more than 10,000 people had been murdered by criminals using these “walked” guns.
Issa needs a Sam Dash. I don't think he has one.
