*****************This Is Important Information on Fast & Furious**************
Eric Holder, Janet Napolitano, Sec. of State’s office & White House (Robert Gibbs) were all aware of “Project Gunrunner” on “March 24th,2009”!!
Two years earlier: On March 24, 2009, a 30-minute news conference was held at the White House by Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that included Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, newly appointed Deputy Attorney General David Ogden, and Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg.
About 13 minutes into the press conference, Ogden, was introduced to:
discuss “joint DOJ and ATF operations”.
Ogden, who had been on the job for a mere 12 days,
“referred to Project Gunrunner and other ancillary ATF programs by name”, and stated that:
“he was working ‘directly’ with the Attorney General” on the “implementation of these programs that included Project Gunrunner”.
Mike Vanderboegh at Sipsey Street Irregulars October 7, 2011:
It is now the morning of “26 March 2009”. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Mexico City. In an interview recorded the day before with Lara Logan, Clinton says,
We have to recognize and accept that the demand for drugs from the United States drives them north, and the guns that are used by the drug cartels against the police and the military, “90 percent” of them come from America....[NOT TRUE!!/my Comment}
The next month, President Barack Obama is in Mexico City and at a joint press conference with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, repeats the same meme:
This war is being waged with guns purchased not here, but in the United States. More than “90 percent” of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that line our shared border.
He also says I have not backed off on “a new assault weapons ban”...
Isikoff, Clinton and Obama were simply parroting a meme begun by notoriously anti-firearm Senators Dick Durbin and Dianne Feinstein during a 17 March congressional hearing.
Durbin said: According to ATF [the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives], more than “90 percent” of the guns seized after raids or shootings in Mexico have been traced right here to the United States of America.
Feinstein added: It is unacceptable to have 90 percent of the guns that are picked up in Mexico used to shoot judges, police officers, mayors, kidnap innocent people and do terrible things come from the United States, and I think we must put a stop to that.
The 90 percent allegation was dutifully reported as fact by a whole host of news organizations including the Christian Science Monitor, Washington Post, the New York Times, NBC and the Chicago Tribune.
Sipsey Street Irregulars, in the article linked and quoted above, reports that Fox News refuted the 90% stat and put it closer to 17%.”
