Skip to comments.43 Weapons in Phoenix Traffic Stop Linked to ATF's 'Fast and Furious' (video)
Posted on 07/07/2011 8:57:39 AM PDT by montag813
The scope of Eric Holder's disastrous 'Fast and Furious" ATF operation just keeps expanding. Now a single traffic stop in Phoenix has revealed 43 weapons with serial numbers traceable to the the ATF scandal - taken from 4 illegal aliens arrested in the stop. How many guns has this Administration put in the hands of gangs throughout the U.S. How many children will die in drive-bys using weapons Holder GAVE to criminals? And with the ATF Director now saying the DoJ obstructing the investigation, the House GOP must not stop until all responsible are rotting in jail. And what did Obama know and when did he know it?

I was also thinking in a broader context of the callousness of this administrations policies. From partial birth abortion, Obamacare rationing, eroding savings of seniors, Middle East meddling, debt and spending, bankrupting the country.... there seems no concern about people or the consequences of the agenda. (IMO)
Drudge only headlined one F&FGate story weeks ago and then it went off his page with other news or he took it down. It is odd that Drudge is not headlining any of this.
What would 4 illegal aliens (invaders) in the USA need with these guns? I thought they all came here for work and to contribute to our economy? I also thought all the violence stopped at the border and didn’t occur on the US side.
I know....this seems a wee bit more important than Murdoch to me.
Liberals: We need to get guns OFF the streets
Holder: We need to get guns ON the streets.
in the private sector, Holder would have been told by HR to clean out his desk and then escorted to the exit by security.
How is it he gets to report to work everyday when we know he is obstructing the investigation?
Every day he is there is another day he gets to clean up his tracks.
I have no idea. I sent him info on the TAMPA stuff as well as the this story.
I also faxed it to grassley and Issa.
It's not being talked about on TV or radio either, as far as I can tell. FOX ran a story about F&F on their website yesterday, but I didn't hear anything on FOX last night. All they wanted to talk about was the Casey Anthony story. Rush talked about the debt ceiling for his first hour. It's almost like the eligibility blackout. Has anyone heard any conservative commentators talking about this yet?
And that is why it does not matter who is elected President next. He or she will continue the slide to the new world order or they will be assasinated.
Scary stuff that is being ignored by the media. Imagine if this were done by a republican? Nobody died in Watergate break-in, and look how that fiasco went.
They do? Where are you finding that power in writing?
The BATFE is a crime organization. It needs to be abolished.
Every Republican with access to Facebook, Twitter, a microphone, or a reporter, needs to be pouncing on this with a vengeance.
The soft underbelly of the beast is exposed. Now’s the time to strike.
As with everything from this lame congress, nothing will happen without Obama's sanction.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
So that we dont get caught up in a CF over terminology as happened during the Whitewater hearings, Id like to get something straight. It is my understanding that;
1) Project Gunrunner was the Bush era operation which was designed to catch straw purchasers in the US and resulted in about 1200 arrests.
2) Operation Fast and Furious was the Obama era plan to allow straw purchasers to transport weapons across the border into Mexico to see where they ended up. (supposedly)
3) Operation Castaway was the same as F&F only Honduras was the (first) destination of the weapons
4) Gunwalker was a term coined by some media hack and has no true basis as the name of a govt. operation.
Ya cant know the players if ya dont have a scorecard.
Please correct me if Im wrong on any of this.
From related thread
....competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses for the ATF Project Gunrunner._Thanks Domandred
IIRC, you’ve got it right. The Holder/Obama thugs took the Gunrunner program and refunded it, to make it feed guns through often illicit buyers that were allowed to be taken into Mexico via the illicit buyers, thus tacitly seeking deaths via these weapons. One can only guess why democrats would seek the deaths of people, because of weapons purchased by known criminals to the ATF. Perhaps Melson will open that can of democrat slaughterhouse worms.
Meanwhile, holder has ordered the investigation of the CIA in reference to the incustody deaths of two terrorists.
