Skip to comments.The furor over ‘Fast and Furious’

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder may show up on Jeopardy! one of these days. No, not as a contestant. As an answer. The clue: Hes the first attorney general in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress. The answer: Who is Eric Holder?
Thats surely not the distinction Holder was going for when he took the job. But thanks to the scandal known as Fast and Furious, thats what hes best known for: overseeing an operation that put more than 2,000 guns into the hands of a Mexican drug cartel and led to the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens and a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
Presumably, this appalling mortality rate wasnt the intention when Fast and Furious was launched in 2009. But we all know what the road to Hell is paved with.
How did it get to this point? Lets review the basic facts.
The idea was that agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives would let U.S.-based straw purchasers associated with the Sinaloa drug cartel buy guns from federally licensed gun dealers and allow them to walk across the border into Mexico (whose government wasnt informed). The agency would track the weapons and trace them to high-level cartel operatives.
It doesnt take a degree in law enforcement to see that the track and trace portion of the foregoing description is probably its most key detail. But according to whistleblowers, this simply wasnt done. Once the guns walked across the border, their whereabouts became a total mystery to the ATF. Then the weapons began showing up at crime scenes.

Gunwalker / Murdergate ping.
Then the plan was to use those statistics against the gun distributors and businesses selling guns, then to use those statistics against the citizens in the UN as the Community Organizer's plan was to work behind the scenes, remember?
Yes, it's Obama, not Holder. Just like Watergate, the pawns have to be sacrificed to protect the Kings and Queens.
It's Obama that is guilty along with his supporting staff of criminals and traitors.
My brother is a border patrol agent so this issue hits home for me. Thankfully he cut his teeth in Afghanistan and is no stranger to combat, but this is the boarder for God sake! I can see the logic in helping the enemy kill each other but surly there had to be a better way.
The author of this article was interviewed by Joe Pags this morning. As Joe said - this explosive revelation, if true could be 10 times worse for Obama than what Watergate was for Nixon!
High-Ranking Mexican Drug Cartel Member Makes Explosive Allegation: Fast and Furious Is Not What You Think It Is

A high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative currently in U.S. custody is making startling allegations that the failed federal gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious isnt what you think it is.
It wasnt about tracking guns, it was about supplying them all part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. government and Mexicos powerful Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.
The explosive allegations are being made by Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, known as the Sinaloa Cartels logistics coordinator. He was extradited to the Chicago last year to face federal drug charges.

Zambada-Niebla claims that under a divide and conquer strategy, the U.S. helped finance and arm the Sinaloa Cartel through Operation Fast and Furious in exchange for information that allowed the DEA, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies to take down rival drug
Could it be that Fox was telling the truth and the Administration was lying?
Could it be???
Eric Holder probably sees his contempt charge as a badge of honor. He hates Congress. He hates white people. He hates guns. He hates the Constitution. All with a smile, just like his Marxist Muslim gay illegal alien comrade 0bama.
“But we all know what the road to Hell is paved with.”
Don’t we though?
