Posted on 07/03/2012 7:07:02 AM PDT by marktwain
Over two dozen college-age protesters gathered this morning outside the White House to protest the Obama administrations handling of the Fast and Furious gun walking investigation that has embroiled Attorney General Eric Holder.
The protest involved a variety of handmade signs featuring such messages as AG doesnt mean Above Government and Guns dont kill people, Holder does, many featuring the Twitter hashtag #FireHolder, which has taken off in popularity in recent weeks.
Timothy Dionisopoulos, 23, co-created a Facebook event last week promoting the rally, and the page has quickly turned into a gathering place for those wishing to share articles and opinions about the Justice Department controversy. The events description cites the Fast and Furious probe as one of the biggest government scandals in recent history, and goes on to state that the blood of border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, and many others, are on the hands of President Obama and AG Holder.
Asked to comment on steps taken by the Attorney General in response to document requests by the House Judiciary Committee, Dionisopoulos stressed that the decision to hand over internal DoJ emails should have been an easy one. Release the information and all this goes away, he said, referencing the circling protestors by the White Houses North Lawn.
With less than an hour remaining in the protest, a bag left near the White House fence prompted the closure of the White House lawn and areas of Lafayette Square by security personnel, as well as the relocation of the protest. Within minutes, numerous claims of conspiracy began circulating online, with a blog on CampusReform.org a site run by the conservative Leadership Institute and which employs both of the events co-organizers quick to point the finger at the White House for meddling with the protest, quoting an activist who alleged that Secret Service agents had seemed hostile and anxious for us to leave the area.
Reached for comment, a spokesman for the United States Secret Service confirmed that a package had been found in the area, and that the temporary closure of parts of Lafayette Square was standard procedure carried out to ensure the safety of officers and the public.
ICE Agent Jaime Zapata and his partner, Victor Avila, were ambushed at a fake roadblock in Mexico. Were they set up? If so by whom?
While the weapons found at the Zapata murder scene were not from among the Fast and Furious guns, this revelation is profoundly significant, because it directly contradicts sworn testimony by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
I have no information to that effect, no. I dont know one way or the other, she replied to a direct question on any Fast and Furious connection by Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas.
Word games. Here's the little trick Napolitano, Holder and ATF are playing. F&F was an ATF operation run out of the Tucson AZ office. But some guns were walked out of Texas gun shops which puts them in the jurisdiction of Texas ATF offices so those ops must have had other names. So far I have not seen any reporting on what those op names were.
Armored SUV could not protect U.S. agents in Mexico
U.S. investigators recovered one of the military-style semi-automatic weapons used in the attack that killed Zapata.
The gun came from Texas.
Ballistic testing of spent shell casings and the raising of an obliterated serial number revealed the weapon was a popular Romanian-made AK-47 knockoff purchased at J&Js Pawn Shop in Beaumont, smuggled south to the Zetas by a methamphetamine trafficker named Manuel Gomez Barba, a U.S. citizen.
Apparently these 300+ DEAD Mexican Citizens had some surviving family members, as Mr 0b0tt0 will not allow them to brandish metal eating utensils in his presence anymore!
Gives new meaning to the old phrase Fork you 0blah blah!
