Posted on 11/02/2011 9:02:00 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax
During her October 25th testimony before the House Government Oversight Committee, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano claimed she has never spoken about Fast and Furious with Attorney General Eric Holder, had never heard of the deadly scheme prior to the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry (as it was an ATF operation) and although head of Homeland Security, considered it unnecessary to learn more about the deliberate SMUGGLING of thousands of weapons into the hands of Mexican drug dealers because there was an investigation being performed by the Inspector General at the Department of Justice.
The degree of outright dishonesty exhibited by Napolitano that afternoon is rivaled only by that of Eric Holder in his House Committee testimony several weeks earlier.
Responding to a question from Committee chair Darrell Issa about her activities following Terrys death, Napolitano said, my number one concern [was] that those responsible for the shooting death of Agent Terry were brought to justice.
Were that actually the case, why would former prosecutor Napolitano make no protest when three of the Mexican illegals taken into custody at the scene of Terrys murder were subsequently deported to Mexico several weeks after the killing?
No charges were filed by Phoenix US Attorney, Dennis Burke, no objection made by the FBI into whose custody the three had been taken and NONE lodged by the concerned Janet Napolitano. Even if none of the three had actually pulled the trigger, arent accessories to murder considered equally culpable under the law?
Or is it possible the DOJ wanted these men out of the country and unable to testify as to what they knew of the Fast and Furious-purchased rifles found at the scene?

Yes but she’s a Demoncrat. It’s legal for her to lie.
Democrat okay to lie —
You mean she’s another Moslem!!??
Only under the justice system that that is in place under their control. It may not be legal, but as of yet, there has been no enforced penalties for doing so.
“There is no controlling legal authority”
!!??** remember that one.
Napolitano just another member of the above the law club.
“... its not believable that ICE, an organization deemed expert in confronting and interdicting drug and GUN TRAFFICKERS (my caps) should be oblivious to thousands of weapons illegally flowing across the Mexican border! “
He still believes anybody had an interest in tracking them!
That’s the whole point of this criminal enterprise!
It was simply to have weapons of U.S. origin show up in Mexico!
