Federal agents take aim at Fortune's Fast and Furious report(Gunwalker)
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 3 August, 2012 | David Codrea

Posted on 08/03/2012 7:26:30 PM PDT by marktwain

The Agent, “The Official Publication of the National Association of Federal Agents,” has added its voice to those of Congressional investigators in deconstructing a Fortune Magazine report critical of Oversight Committee efforts to determine the truth about Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking.” Earlier this week, Gun Rights Examiner was forwarded a copy of NAFA’s “Summer 2012” issue, challenging allegations made by Fortune in a rebuttal article titled “Who’s on First? What’s on Second? The Ongoing Story of Fast & Furious.”

Regular readers of this column will recall an appendix to a joint congressional staff report released Tuesday characterized the Fortune report as “a hit piece full of errors and omissions,” and stated the writer of the story, Katherine Eban, “was inquiring about the circumstances of [ATF whistleblower John] Dodson’s divorce, apparently based on information in Agent Dodson’s ATF personnel file.”

“Eban may also have been provided information from John Dodson's personal ATF jacket -- a felony,” citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh noted Wednesday on the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog, linking to a Main Justice analysis that included a response from a Fortune spokesman, not surprisingly expressing full support for their reporter.

NAFA ‘s editorial staff does not share in that support. Addressing key claims in the Eban piece, they provide point-by-point rebuttals based on their law enforcement experience and professional knowledge of procedures.

“This assertion is patently untrue,” NAFA notes, responding to Eban’s declaration that “no federal statute outlaws firearms trafficking.”

“Title 18, Chapter 44, Section 922(a)(1)(A) makes it a felony ‘to engage in the business of dealing in firearms without a license,’ which is exactly what was going on here,” NAFA replies. “The statute has been on the books for almost 45 years with numerous cases having been made pursuant to it.”

The MSM will not be completely destroyed by their obvious duplicity and agenda based writing. They cannot be because of the First Amendment. But, their market share should drop to the percent of the populaiton that are hard left. Probably less than 20 percent of the population.

BULL Squeeze... with a rogue Justice Department NOTHING will be done.. nothing..
Zero has made legal illegal, and illegal legal..
Which by the way was/is his plan..

He performs Alinsky tactics like a drone.. in the collective..
The commies promised this “to US” since the thirtys.. of last century..

The communist manifesto has been performed like clockwork..
AND.... republicans ignored it like an autistic child looking at the light..
Basically “they” ALLOWED IT.. they allowed this to happen ON PURPOSE..

Its time for the republican party to go the way of the Whigs..
Their metaphorical whigs have grown INTO their scalps..

Uh-oh! Looks like somebody went "a bridge too far".
