Posted on 10/01/2011 5:50:46 PM PDT by Kaslin
Barack Obama March 2011:
"First of all, I did not authorize it [Operation Fast and Furious]. Eric Holder, the attorney General did not authorize it."
"This is a pretty big government, the United States Government, I've got a lot of moving parts."
Barack Obama June 2011:
"As you know my Attorney General has made clear he certainly would not have ordered gun running to be able to pass through into Mexico."
"The investigation is still pending and I'm not going to comment on a pending investigation"
"It wouldn't be appropriate for me to comment on the investigation if it is not completed."
New documents from the White House show extensive communications between for Special Agent in Charge William Newell, who has since been promoted to a cushy position within the Obama Justice Department in Washington D.C., and White House national security team staff about Operation Fast and Furious. In the video above, Obama claims it is his administration's policy to "catch gunrunners and put them into jail," when in fact ATF and DOJ policy under Obama has been exactly the opposite. ATF agents were told by senior officials to allow gunrunners to put high powered weapons into the hands of ruthless cartels, not to arrest them and to allow them to go back into Mexico.
From CBS News:
The documents show extensive communications between then-ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix office Bill Newell - who led Fast and Furious - and then-White House National Security Staffer Kevin O'Reilly. Emails indicate the two also spoke on the phone. Such detailed, direct communications between a local ATF manager in Phoenix and a White House national security staffer has raised interest among Congressional investigators looking into Fast and Furious. Newell has said he and O'Reilly are long time friends.
William Newell admitted during testimony on Capitol Hill in July that the White House had in fact been in contact with him about Operation Fast and Furious. Newell even referred to Kevin O'Reilly as, "a good friend." Previous to Newell's admission, the White House denied any knowledge or authorization of Operation Fast and Furious. Once Newell said he was in contact with O'Reilly, the White House then claimed O'Reilly and two other White House national security staffers knew about the program but didn't know "details."
Now, we know that White House National Security Staffer Kevin O'Reilly was heavily briefed about the details of the operation through emails and phone calls.
With the State Dept. funding the Zetas while ATF funded the Sinaloas, was the objective to foment such weapons-fueled violence that mass numbers of fearful Mexicans would move north, then vote Dem..?
Beginning to seem possible, yes.
And NOW the scandal might also include grenades:
Someone is going to jail over this. Let’s just wait and see who drops the dime on who to stay out of jail. Lives will be ruined eventually......but who’s.
Obama will never speak truth.
rule of the snitches, first one to talk gets the best deal...
The mods have made these prominent on the forum page.
Obama————I did not say to Mrs. Brady.” We are working under the radar”.
This bucket of pus is in it up to his neck.
Did anyone read the replies to the article in Townhall.com? It looks like some left wingers are trying to change the subject, but the conservative don’t want to have anything to do with it?
“This bucket of pus is in it up to his neck.”
VERY unfair comparison. He is not in a bucket.
The whole administration is bobbing around in the cesspool.
If the national security council knew, that means pretty much everyone.
If this was a Republican Administration this would be a big effing deal. /s
Zero and his administration are such liars.
I don’t think a convoluted plan to get somebody “voting Dem” has anything to do with it.
The essential thing is that Obama doesn’t think Mexicans are human beings. He thinks they’re icky little brown people who speak some language he can’t understand and are mostly Catholic, and therefore they’re disposable garbage to prove his point (which is that guns themselves are evil and the US is the source of all evil in the world).
The thing about Obama is that he is so stupid and so full of hate that this hare-brained scheme actually seemed logical to him.
Drip, drip, drip. Like sand through an hourglass. Time is running out for someone.
Even today, more than 9 out of 10 people do not know anything about this scam.
I try to get my friends to comprehend what went on with this excellent video:
And as of late, this excellent article:
llort alert! Whoo-whoo
That’s also Soros like.
Input needed. Have now started a new ping list called BORDER WARS since so many of these stories are starting to intersect and overlap. I would like to keep the Gunwalker threads separate. Let me know if you want on the Border Wars list. It will NOT be the same as Gunwalker, though they might overlap occasionally. Please ping me to any articles you think fit in this catagory. Thank you.
“This is a pretty big government, the United States Government, I’ve got a lot of moving parts.”
EXACTLY why it needs to be cut WAY down.
