Hillary Clinton:No Evidence DOJ Sought Required License to Send Guns to Mexico in Fast and Furious By Fred Lucas October 28, 2011
(CNSNews.com) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified in the House Foreign Relations Committee Thursday that there was "no record" that the Justice Department had given the State Department a "head up" about Operation Fast and Furious, in which guns were allowed to flow from the United States to drug traffickers in Mexico, and that the State Department had found "no evidence" that DOJ had applied for a license or waiver to send guns to a foreign country, which a member of the committee told her would have been required under U.S. law.
Clinton was responding to questions from Rep. Connie Mack (R.-Fla.), the chairman of the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere Affairs.
The federal Arms Export Control Act requires State Department involvement in any decision to send weapons across an international border. Under the act, it is illegal to "conspire to export, import, re-export or cause to be exported ... any defense article ... for which a license or written approval is required ... without first obtaining the required license or written approval from the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls."

Holder to be stuffed under that bus?
Better get a bus with a higher ground clearance. Getting sort of snug under there.
Mr. Holder, meet Mr. Bus. Could be worse. If Hill was in charge you’d be spending quality time reconnecting with nature in Ft. Marcy Park.
Holder should be under that bus.
Hillary was obviously in it up to her neck. She spent a lot of time giving speeches on the theme that 90% of the guns used by the Mexican drug cartels were bought from American gun shops.
That was the whole point of the exercise—to back up that assertion, also made by Obama and the President of Mexico, so Second Amendment rights could be ended.
Whether they can prove anything is another matter. They need a source in the State Department or elsewhere who can give them some documentary proof, like those agents working for BATF who outed Holder.
There are plenty of leftie leakers in the State Department. I don’t know about conservatives. Few and far between, I think, and probably not in the know.
But we can always hope that the guys running the show have some reason for subpoenaing Hildabeast at this time.
[Hitlery] testified in the House Foreign Relations Committee Thursday that there was "no record" that the Justice Department had given the State Department a "head up" about Operation Fast and Furious...IOW, "I won't be the fall girl for you, Zero."
They're making room...
oh no not more ‘I don’t recall’ Clinton ..haha
You got it - this turkey is toast!
The cast of characters include Holder, Hillary, Mr. Janet Napolitano, Rahmster, and Zero.... This whole deal was a media play to get rid of private gun ownership, IMHO.
Nope - No smoking gun in there.
the women is a liar. just remrmber that
"Hello State? Umm, this is DOJ. We're gonna buy a bunch of guns by using illegal straw purchasers and would like a license to smuggle the illegal weapons illegally into Mexico to the illegal drug cartels."
"Will there be any problem with that?"
She just dog-piled onto the tar baby.
Barack Obama using Hillary Clinton to throw Eric Holder under the bus.
NOW I’ve seen everything ....
Well, not really. When I see the debate between Herman Cain and Barack Unable-Obama, THEN I will have seen everything.
“Was there ever any record?”
“Who removed the record?”
“So, you’re saying you are deliberately leaving doubt about the record?”
“What proof have you? You say you’ve brought no proof? Who gave you this reassurance. I want names.”
No record? No $h!t Sherlock. This was a false flag op to produce dead people that Klinton, Herr Holder and Barry could drag through the public square on the road to more gun bans.
Hitlery is damn glad there is "no evidence" and why would there be? This was a seditious conspiracy. Even dumb traitors don't apply for permission.
She's actually hoping that Issa will connect the dots that lead to Obama for her. In the meantime, she's covering her ample behind.
A Vince Foster monment.
Let me get this straight;
They were going to apply for a permit to export guns to Mexico? When they( DOJ) were actually providing the money to buy the weapons and then allowed them to be smuggled across with no effort or electronic tracking devices to find/track them? Then these same weapons were used to kill US agents.
Yes, Hillary we believe this as much as we believe Bill never raped, you never stole records, and Vince Foster killed himself.
Yep, very believable/s
An impeached Hillary isn't too far-fetched.
What? That means the shredders are alive and well at the State Department!
I just do not believe the answer.
You can’t find a single shredded... uh, shred of evidence to support that.
I hope whoever has been set up as the fall guy at State took some evidence home to bargain with for immunity when TSHTF and I hope there are some handwritten notes in the margins. Or fingerprints, her own actual fingerprints on a paper memo would work too.
I’m with you, but the point I was trying to make was, Hitlery isn’t going to be hung out to dry on this — she’s redirecting everyone to Holder and Zero.
And Janet Napolitano will be the one taking the fall, obliquely.
Did you look in Sandy Burglar's socks?
Nope she’s covering her tail. She’s not innocent in this.
IOW, she only denied that DoJ had told State about such operations... denial as straw man. Gotta love that. :’)
