Alibis Falling Apart
IBD Editorials ^ | October 14, 2011 | Editor

Crime: An old news tape shows that President Obama directly contradicted Attorney General Eric Holder's testimony to Congress about when he knew of Operation Fast and Furious. How many times will the story change?

An administration that keeps shifting its story is obviously trying to hide something. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the latest revelations about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' Fast and Furious scandal, which helped arm Mexico's violent cartels as a means to whip up support for gun control.

As the gamy details seeped out and Congress started asking questions, Holder testified to Congress on May 3 that he knew nothing about the operation gone bad.

"When did you first know about the program officially I believe called Fast and Furious? To the best of your knowledge, what date?" asked House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa.

"I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks," said Holder.

That contrasts sharply with what President Obama told a CNN En Espanol interviewer last March:

As the alibis fall apart, the street chaos is going to amp up. They want blood in the streets. I believe they’re going to find a way to get it.

Happened in ‘68. Can happen again, you betcha.

‘68 was just a run-up to this one. They have learned a lot in the intervening years, and infiltrated “the Establishment”.

If We The People had a Congress which kept its oaths of office, they could bring this criminal enterprise to a sudden halt by drafting impeachment papers. We of course know why they will not ... complicity is a criminal offense, IIRC, when crime is discovered.

"Fast and Furious" is what he might not have heard before.

Holder is playing Clintonian word games, IMO.

What really pisses me off to no end is that uhbama has NO INTEREST in getting to the top dog or dogs responsible for the MURDER of an AMERICAN BORDER AGENT slain by our OWN WEAPONRY because of a sick plan gone bad; yet this same cowardly, arrogant POS is determined to get to the bottom of an ALMOST murder of a Saudi Ambassador.

UHbama is the very WORST kind of man, he puts EVERYTHING above his countrymen.

Kissses every foreign lot he can get his big mouth around.

It’s called “Deflection”, or “Redirection”. “transference”.

I suspect his lack of interest in getting the top dog is because HE IS THE TOP DOG.

Do you remember Holder standing at a lecturn and telling the American people, “Americans are such cowards.” Now, this pathetic, shitty, little man stands exposed for all the world to see as he cowers, hiding behind his lies, and now exposed, refuses to tell the truth. He is the most pathetic of human refuse....a liar of the first order and now, defines himself as the coward his is. His boss has revealed his lies, in Obamas own attempt to propagate lies. They are both liars, and now,...liars found out.

Agree 100% with your post.

I remember Holder before I knew the name barack obama, or berry soetero or whatever his most recent social security number reads.

He has clinton's problem. Presidents of low character (or no character) are unable to surround themselves with men of good character. They can't HANDLE THE TRUTH!

And our country suffers as a result.

From http://www.saf.org/viewpr-new.asp?id=291 dated 4/8/2009

In Mexico, according to the Wall Street Journal, Holder was asked if the administration might encounter constitutional issues as it tries to crack down on alleged gun trafficking. His response: “I don’t think our Second Amendment will stand in the way of efforts we have begun and will expand upon.”

Pelosi’s earnest gun control determination is mentioned in the article. Makes a person wonder how she missed out on the cavalcade of leftist star’s involvement with F&F.

ATF and Holder’s henchdufuses were trying to arm both of the big two competing cartels. And they were playing favorites with allowing the Zetas special cocaine shipment privileges while actually shipping to them military grade weaponry.

There is much pointing to that ‘assassination’ plot being a fabrication, not originating in Iran.

Obama and his cronies have reason it seems for their near-fanatical devotion to hiding their pasts and making archived information about them and their actions ‘disappear’.

I can confidently predict that the National Archives are going to have a dearth of information about this administration once they are finally removed.

How strange that this is all happening in October.

Just wondering.

It doesn’t contrast “sharply.” Six weeks, while on the outer edge, still falls within the vague term “a few weeks.” If he had said “last week,” it would contrast “sharply,” but he didn’t.

Isn't it about time for somebody to quietly approach Holder and explain that he can either bear full responsibility for this, or he can offer proof that this program was NOT his idea, but was the brainchild of "somebody higher up"?

I know that "I was just following orders" isn't much of a defense, but he's got to be grasping at straws at this point.
