Obama slammed on Fast and Furious in Spanish-language TV interview: Shouldnt you fire Holder? [VIDEO]
Interviewers on the Spanish-language television network Univision grilled President Barack Obama about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal plaguing his administration in an interview Thursday.
You told me during an interview that you and Mr. Holder did not authorize the Fast and Furious operation that allowed 2,000 weapons from the United States into Mexico and they were in the drug trafficking [cartels'] hands, Univision co-host Jorge Ramos asked Obama, according to a translator, during the interview. I think that up to 100 Mexicans might have died and also American agent Brian Terry. Theres a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation but shouldnt the attorney general, Eric Holder, he should have known about that and if he didnt, should you fire him?
Obama responded with similar talking points his administration has used time and again.
Well, first of all, I think its important to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program, begun under the previous administration, Obama said. When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned an inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and that the people who did initiate this were held accountable. But, what I think is most important is recognizing that weve got a challenge in terms of weapons flowing south, and the strategy that was pursued out of Arizona, obviously, was completely wrongheaded. Those folks who were responsible have been held accountable. The question now is, how do we move forward with a strategy that will actually work?
We are going to have to work with Mexican law enforcement..,

Can’t fire my bro’ dude. /s =.=
Meh..! Choom Gangstah only killed...250 Mexican cops, and HOW many civvies...?
Amazed the topic was broached even this once...
First thing out of his mouth is a flat lie.
Uh, no Zero, that was GunRunner, which was CANCELED "in the previous administration." Fast & Furious is all yours baby.
Why I'd laugh my ass off.
Shouldn’t you fire Holder?

Obama’s lies are about to catch up with him, what a POS!
“But, what I think is most important is recognizing that weve got a challenge in terms of weapons flowing south,”
Nothing has changed. Nothing,
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
OBAMA AND HOLDER AND THE DEMOCRATS ARE RACISTS!!!!
Well, maybe we should get these people to hold the upcoming presidential debates. Oh, that’s right.. It’s all about what Hispanics want, Hispanics, Hispanics.. The upcoming Presidential debates won’t even come close to being tough for 0bama, since he’ll be given all questions in advance.
“Uh, no Zero, that was GunRunner, which was CANCELED “in the previous administration.” Fast & Furious is all yours baby.”
Did the IG investigation find out who restarted it and by who’s authority and who gave it the new name?
Will the Clarify Team work over time ?
Exactly....also GunRunner was a carefully monitored program - not like the Fast and Furious fiasco.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
... he knows too much...
Lying about it might be Barry's undoing with this group.... I hope.
Never mind the name, who authorized the MONEY? That many guns doesn't come cheap. The level of signature authority would say a lot about how far this thing went.
If Mitt Romney’s people were on the ball, they’d buy advertisement time on spanish language tv stations detailing how Obama was involved in a program that resulted in the murder of innocent mexican citizens in mexico. Romney’s poll numbers would rocket in the hispanic community.
6 AMERICANS are dead in Benghazi and he doesn’t care about THAT either.
