Skip to comments.Clinton: DOJ didn't give State a ‘heads up’ about Fast and Furious
Posted on 10/27/2011 8:11:58 PM PDT by Texas Fossil
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told lawmakers Thursday that she had not been notified by the Justice Department about a botched, international gun-tracking program has been linked to the death of a Border Patrol agent.
Appearing before the House Foreign Affairs committee, Clinton was questioned by Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) about the State Departments involvement in the controversial Fast and Furious operation that has triggered hearings on Capitol Hill.

Der Hilderbeats does not like to be questioned. Some things do not change.
Remember the Rose Law Firm testimony? and her answer? "I cannot recall."
She’s lying. This time it may land her in prison.
Yeah, the DOJ forgot to inform her of actions that had “international incident” written all over them. Sorry, Hilly, I was born at night, but not last night.
I don’t think she is lying.
I believe the ATF & Justice jumped the shark with this whole mess.They did Obama’s bidding as ordered.
She is up to her saggy gobble gobble neck in F&F.
Messy stuff, this. Like trying to eat waffles without getting syrup on your fork and fingers.
She should be having flashbacks about now about Ft. Marcy Park and her retaliation lover..
Of course she isn’t ever to be believed.
Eventually all these denials will trip them up
cause somewhere it’s in evidence.
It only takes one to make the stammering begin.
I seriously doubt that the planners to this whole thing ever talked to the State Department at all. You would think...anything crossing US borders would have to be explained out...but I doubt they ever spoke. Same thing for the CIA keeping the state department informed. Same thing for the FBI keeping the state department informed.
The comical side of this is that when she did discover the whole picture...it was via TV news...not her staff or state department intelligence ‘squad’. Luckily, she watches CNN and at least got this info four days after Fox News started to cover it. If she watched MSNBC....she’d still be in the dark, and wondering what all this talk was about.
Of course she is lying, her lips are moving.
And all Commies lie, it is in the DNA.
I agree with you that she is most likely not lying. And that only makes things worse for the Obama (mal)administration, not better.
Then how did the Secretary of State know exactly when to start making the complaint about "90% of the guns used by the cartels are coming from gun dealers and gun shows in the American Southwest."
Yep, they and she both did Obozo's bidding. The authorization for F&F and Castaway both originated from the White Hut at 1600 Penn. Ave.
Why do they keep calling this a gun tracking program?
Because to admit otherwise indicates the true aim and source of this operation, crippling the 2nd Amendment and the White Hut at 1600 Penn Ave.
If their GD lips are moving, they're lying.
She says she don't know when the State Dept knew of Fast and Furious? Said the State Dept has no record of an international operation involving weapons transfer to murderers and terrorist gangs?
She tells him she has no knowledge or documentation, then says, "well give me some time, and I'll check into it and look further?"
The freaking Secretary of State don't know if the GD State Department has knowledge of an international operation of shipping firearms across international borders to murderers and terrorist?
BTW, you's have a better chance of juggling flaming chain saws while roller skating, than this government prosecuting and sentencing Hillary to prison.
I agree with you.
Hatred of the Hildebeast is no reason to be blind to the fact that by failing to notify the State Department of the intention to deliver arms to Mexican cartels, the Obama Justice Department has committed a crime. Hillary’s testimoney went a long way down the road to make that case.
U.S. shares blame for Mexico drug violence, Clinton says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, on a two-day visit to Mexico, accepts that the U.S. market for narcotics and a cross-border trade in U.S. guns contribute to Mexico's drug violence.
Never forget what I said on the day of Obozo’s corronation (inauguration):
“Welcome to New Kenya (Africa U.S.A.)”
“Where the law of the jungle has replaced the Law of the Land.”
It is TIME to do something about it.
She laid the egg that started Fast and Furious!
Snow jobs won't work this time. hee hee hee
She is so obviously lying.
She is lying AND people at the DOJ and ATF committed felonies.
Oh, but there’s about zero chance she’s ever going to prison for anything.
The GOP, now having the power to subpoena, does not want to look like they are playing politics with an issue that just might impact election outcomes, that is, an October 2012 Surprise.
So, once again, are there those who are indeed above the law?
And yes Congressman, there is this Vast Right wing Conspiracy ,if there is some Reporter out there who would investigate it,would win a Nobel Prize
This is exactly what she is doing, just like the rest of them.
“Then how did the Secretary of State know exactly when to start making the complaint about “90% of the guns used by the cartels are coming from gun dealers and gun shows in the American Southwest.”
Because the ATF’s 90% claim appeared in USA Today about a week before her statement.
Ping to #34
She said she first heard of it in the press. But notice how differently she answered the second question....about the waiver.
IMO, the questioners should immediately CEASE using the term "Fast & Furious". I truly believe that she and others did NOT know about F&F......BY THAT NAME!!!!!
Anyone remember the dance that was done around the word "Whitewater" during the Banking Committee hearings in 95?
Keep an eye on Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Obama has really pissed him off with the relentless attacks on him, and Joe is no stranger to D.C. politics. He played that game and won many years ago.
I just watched that video. What she issued was a non-denial denial.
BTW, anyone know why the CIA is getting a pass on this issue? Just curious.
I saw a couple threads early in the week about Apaijo having some information on Obama or the administration that may be damaging. I understand he’s had his own investigation going on.
Arpaio, with the help of 3 other top notch investigators, are combing through Obama’s entire history with a fine toothed comb!
I hope they come up with some good stuff.
Exactly! When dealing with the Clintons and their toadies, one must choose one’s words carefully.
Remember Slick Willie’s what is the meaning of “is” statements.
Legal weasel words.
Yep, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a sly old fox. Quiet, but effective. No bull.
