And to think thatAttorney General Eric Holder is getting testy about congressional calls for his resignation. After all, the Justice Department has nothing to hide, right?:
The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico.
This means information will now be kept from the public as well as the media. Could this be a cover-up on the part of the most transparent administration in history? After all, the rifle used to kill the federal agent (Brian Terry) last December in Arizonas Peck Canyon was part of the now infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the disastrous scheme allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels.
The murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent is related to a Justice Department willingly turning over thousands of guns to Mexican criminal gangs, and Obama administration is hiding information about his death from the public. Amazing.
If Holder were a Republican he would be in jail now. He should be taken out in cuffs!!
Wow! They must REALLY have a LOT to HIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just pay Axelrod a crap load of money! He knows how to get sealed cases unsealed!!
There is NO TRUTH what so ever in the mac daddy administration.
Half this administration belongs in jail.
Republians need to immediately call for an independent counsel probe.
Congress could require that these records be opened and made public. So could the courts. I wonder if anyone in Washington has the courage to let the truth be known.
This is just plain nuts..not to mention criminal.. Can’t these be subpoened? What exactly does ‘sealed’ mean? After all, if Axelrod’s people can access court records to damage an opponent, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get them...But then again, this is 0bama and Holder we’re talking about.
Never have I been more disgusted or distrusting of those in charge. This cannot stand.
Felon-crats can do whatever they want.
Have you ever seen those sealed records on Dead Ted’s misadventure?
Ever seen Obama’s non-existing birth records, his college records, etc, etc?
I am confused by the headline. How was the murdered border patrol agent implicated in Fast & Furious?
Thread BUMP! BUMP-TO-THE-TRUTH!
Issa already has. Of course the administration would actually end up appointing the counsel. Or Justice Dept itself.
Expect the sound of crickets.
It would seem the State has a say in all that. It was a murder within their borders.
Tells you everything you need to know.
And be called a racist???
This can’t be allowed to stand. Time to find out again what the Republicrats in Washington are made of.
The GOP is getting ripped over each candidate's history, while Obama has essentially NO history. We know SO little about him. Birth records sealed, kindergarten records sealed, high school records sealed, college records sealed, transcripts sealed, passport records sealed, why he lost his law license sealed, Even his thesis papers. MOST people are proud of those. Those would tell us a lot about the man's core beliefs...
what Obama's classmate at Occidental said he was like at that time:
Marlzberg: OK, So there's Barry Obama, and... tell me why you believe that he was a Marxist back then? Drew: OK, well my most vivid memory is how INSISTENT he was in arguing a Marxist / Leninist point of view. I was arguing a more moderate Marxist view that just said that even though a lot of Marxist ideas were correct, it was implausible that we would ever see a revolution led by the working class to overthrow the elite. And Obama did NOT buy that AT ALL. He made a very principled, dedicated, impassioned argument that in fact, a REAL revolution was coming. And in a sense, we should all get on board and prepare ourselves physically and emotionally for that revolution. ... Marlzberg: yea, and so, OK, he wasn't ambitious at the time. But the revolution, that he saw coming, this fit in with some other remarks you made, about the United States, where you say that you believe that Obama perceived America as the ENEMY. In what sense? Drew: He DEFINITELY saw America as the enemy. He believed that the ruling elite had rigged our economic system so that it CAUSED people to be poor. And it was immoral, and it was wrong, and the only way you could tip things back so we all could enjoy a more prosperous lifestyle, was to redistribute the wealth.
Poorly worded headline. The agent was killed by one of the guns allowed to "walk" into Mexico.
