Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal
Townhall.com ^ | April 16, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 04/16/2012 5:25:16 AM PDT by Kaslin

Operation Fast and Furious is the deadliest and most sinister scandal in American history. A scandal so big, it’s worse than Iran-Contra and makes Watergate look like a high school prank gone wrong.

In the early days of the Obama Administration, President Obama claimed his goal was to stop the trafficking of guns from the United States into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels. He claimed gun dealers in the United States were responsible for sending guns to Mexico. Both of his claims were lies.

In order to push his lies and policies built around them, with a goal of implementing harsher gun control laws and reinstating the assault weapons ban, President Obama packed his administration full of anti-Second Amendment zealots. After all, personnel is policy.

In my new book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup, I document the conspiracy of senior Obama officials to subvert the Second Amendment, which led directly to the murders of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, I.C.E. Agent Jaime Zapata and countless, faceless lives in Mexico. It debunks the Obama administration’s lies, denials and excuses. This administration was willing to use humans as collateral damage to push a political agenda, and had no shame in doing so. Now, the administration has no shame in covering up their reckless actions.

Since just moments after Brian Terry was killed in the Arizona desert on December 15, 2010 by Mexican cartel thugs, carrying AK-47s provided to them by the Obama Justice Department through Operation Fast and Furious, the FBI, Homeland Security, ATF, Justice Department and the White House have been engaged in a full scale cover-up.  These are simply names of government agencies, but who are the people behind the cover-up?

I unravel a tangled web connecting President Obama, Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano and a number of advisors and political appointees behind Fast and Furious. These officials have deep loyalties to each other and their anti-Second Amendment ideology dating as far back as the Clinton Administration. In fact, many key Fast and Furious players  have deep ties to Chicago and helped craft the 1994 Clinton assault weapons ban legislation. 

If the majority of American people knew Fast and Furious like they know Solyndra or the GSA scandal, they would be outraged. Despite very few exceptions, the media has been complicit in the cover-up of Obama’s bloodiest scandal by ignoring and refusing to report about it. Why? To protect the President. This scandal, one that has left hundreds of bodies in its wake, would be deadly to the administration. This is the scandal that will bring President Obama down in November, so long as the American people know its details.

Over the weekend, GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney officially made Fast and Furious a general election issue. His advisors are now directly pointing to the scandal as an example of how the Obama Administration used in its first term to “provide cover for potential efforts to restrict Second Amendment rights." In the book, I provide the documents and interviews to prove it.

The Obama administration is acting guilty, not innocent, in its actions to continually stonewall and deny the truth. Any American who believes the President, the Attorney General of the United States, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and a long list of other government officials responsible for this reckless program are not above the law, need this book.

Operation Fast and Furious wasn't a "botched" program. It was a calculated and lethal decision to purposely place thousand of guns into the hands of ruthless criminals. The operation was a coordinated and planned effort not to track guns, but to arm thugs south of the border for political gain. Eric Holder should be removed from office for incompetence, dishonesty and charged with perjury. My sources, documented in the book, say Janet Napolitano may also face charges of perjury and potentially obstruction of justice. It is time for President Obama to take responsibility, denounce the operation and fire those involved.

If it is so big and terrible, how come Obama is still President? Why is he not bleeding in the gutter?

I don’t understand obama’s defence. Botched operation? Whats the details? Is he saying, that thousand of guns were handed to criminals without any plan in place to get it back? So why were they given to them in the first place?

In other words, The Administration embarked on a PLAN TO OVERTHROW the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution and thereby the Constitution itself, and countless innocent people lost their lives. We used to call this something??

This is why I said yesterday that eligibility issue wouldn't be much of a scandal even if it were to come out that Obama was actually born outside of the country.

Hell, just his associations with Bill Ayers, a known and convicted domestic terrorist should have been more then enough to keep him out of politics, much less the White House.

The Media has become so dishonest and corrupt that they will whitewash every bit of this guys dirty laundry and the American people have simply become to lazy to think for themselves to care about the truth.

Obama could engage in ritual human sacrifice on live TV and his hardcore supporters would be unfazed while everyone else was too busy with American Idle to care.

This guy is simply untouchable and above the law and the vast majority of the American people don't care.

IMHO...it is about drug-running...and the ATF’s attempts to “convert” it into something less.

The ATF should have been defunded and shut down after Waco and Randy Weaver. The fact that Congress has continued to fund them is concerning about the “hold” thay may have on some of the ranking members...and is yet another arguement for term limits

“The House would impeach Obama today if the Senate was not controlled by the communists.”

Curious if the House, regardless of the Republican majority could overcome the approximately 80 CPC members, and their influence amongst the Democrats to effectively impeach Obama.

A passing thought.

The House could still impeach regardless of what the Senate finally does with it.

The Senate, inspite of being (R) control still didn't convict Clinton in 1998, but could you imagine what it would be like if Harry Reid doesn't let something like this even come to trial any more than he lets a budget resolution come to the floor for a Senate vote?

And could you imagine Obama testifying under oath during his election campaign. He'd have perp written all over his face even like Clinton did.

The problem with Clinton's impeachment was the timing -- it gave him 2 years until Gore's run to clean up his reputation and to allow Gore to distance himself (taking a leak -- too much iced tea, remember?) in the meantime.

FReegards!

Any AK-47 sold in America would be semiauto unless you had a special permit. The Mexican cartels have more money than Exxon. Why would they buy semiauto weapons on a small scale from Texas when they easily have the means to get boatloads of full auto ones delivered over their more porous southern border? It sounds like F&F was not only a Keystone Cops operation it was also going after some really small fish. In fact the only thing that would make any sense at all would be to set up some local gun dealers, but even that doesn’t fly because the dealers were doing what the Feds asked them to do.

Whats the details?

The DoJ assigned a special investigator to investigate. Over a year ago. It's not done yet. If you're under twenty and live to be very old you may live to see it finished.

Perhaps not today, but the day is coming. Can't you feel it?

The pressure is building and cracks are forming all over the dams holding back the truth and what inevitably follows.

In spite of all the roadblocks and interference, people are learning more and more about what has been done and what is being done.

This is so big and the wheels turn so slowly that we feel like things are stuck and at a standstill.

Whatever karma they set in motion, they can't stop and now it's picking up speed coming back around...just a matter of time.

This is true. People may forget but the first indictment in Watergate didn't come until 13 months after the story broke in the press and that was with 13 months of intense media pressure.

Let's call it what it is. State-sponsored terrorism.

On this side of the border it's violations of the RICO Act. In Mexico and Honduras it's state-sponsored terrorism.

What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within a foreign country wherein that country is in a death struggle with those syndicates?

Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?

Not to mention the just-revealed news that the rip crew that killed BP Agent Brian Terry was there with DEA and FBI assistance and approval to attack and kill a rival cartel's smuggling crew.

Let's not leave out the FBI and DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.

It's organized, it is spread through every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned. It's the FedGov acting like mafiosa.

0bama, Holder and Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is state-sponsored terrorism. These Chicago machine Marxist thugs are dragging our country down to the level of Tehran and Pyongyang.

The purpose of F+F was to eliminate the competition, and ensure ‘control’ of the border.

With multiple cartels, the money gets spread out too much, and there is no uniformity or discipline amongst the groups, so they run ‘wild’.

So, the corrupt ruling elite of our nation have picked one cartel to support with weapons, and ‘advisors’, and arrest or kill the competition.

Then, control of the flow of money is established, and the politicians get their cut off the top.

It’s not (and never has been) about CLOSING the border, it’s about CONTROLLING WHERE and WHAT goes over the border.

It’s a PAY TO PLAY system, with our corrupt leaders as the FAT BANKERS.

Democrats can claim that the Obama administration is scandal-free because the media does such a good job covering up the scandals.

"Fast and Furious" is the worst, but there are plenty of other stories that would be considered major scandals if done by a Republican administration--violating the law to favor the unions in the auto maker bailout, Solyndra, lots of other examples of crony capitalism, dropping the charges of voter intimidation against the NBPP, ignoring the bounty on Zimmerman, buying votes to get Obamacare passed, creating "czars" to get around the requirements for Senate confirmation, appointing people to positions which require confirmation when the Senate was not in recess by pretending it was...the list goes on and on.

It's not hard to think that at least one purpose of it all is to topple the Mexican government.

"Grenade-walking" part of "Gunwalker" scandal

And this...

Worse Than Gunwalker? State Dept. Allegedly Sold Guns to Zetas

Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:

Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.

(snip)

“They’ve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era,” Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor.

More about State Department involvement...

— has sources claiming “Obama’s man in the State Department,” (former) Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg, was the State Department operative who helped Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General David Ogden formulate the strategy that led to the tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious.

Steinberg took office as Deputy Secretary of State on January 28, 2009

A little more than two years later, it was announced that Steinberg's time in the Obama State Department was over. From the New York Times, 30 March 2011:

Mrs. Clinton heaped praise on Mr. Steinberg, describing him as an “indispensable” partner. “On every foreign policy challenge, big and small, he has helped formulate our policy and oversee its execution,” she wrote. Mr. Steinberg, she said, played “Oscar to Jack Lew’s Felix,” referring to Jacob J. Lew, her other deputy, who left earlier this year to become Mr. Obama’s budget director.
