Homeland Security Inspector Generalís report on Fast and Furious still unfiled
Gun Rights Examiner ^ | 12 November, 2012 | David Codrea

Posted on 11/13/2012 7:20:51 AM PST by marktwain

A review of press releases issued by the Department of Homeland Security, the latest being filed Sunday and dealing with DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s visit to Staten Island for a Hurricane Sandy follow-up, reveals the department is crediting itself with all kinds of activities and accomplishments except for its commitment to produce an Inspector General report on Fast and Furious gunwalking independent of the Department of Justice report released in September. A review of the DHS OIG press releases on its website, with the latest filing also being yesterday, also does not mention such a report.

The second IG investigation was revealed in May by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, who reported at the time “The DHS IG has told Congressional staffers it expects to have a final report ready to deliver to Congress in early October.” It was also referenced in the DOJ OIG report, which acknowledged “The Office of the Inspector General for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS-OIG), the parent agency for ICE, is conducting a review of ICE’s involvement in and knowledge of Operation Fast and Furious.”

Such a review is critical, because while the completed DOJ report details an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who cooperated with their investigation had “direct involvement with Operation Fast and Furious” up until a “January, 2010 meeting … ICE’s Phoenix office assigned another agent to serve as point of contact for ATF, and eventually detailed this agent to ATF’s Group VII to work on the investigation full-time.”

A footnote in the report following that revelation then explains “The ICE agent who was assigned to ATF’s Group VII declined our request for a voluntary interview.”

Why? And why is no one asking that?

The Regime does what it wants and when it wants. Just a little more transformation and it will be a crime to question Regime actions. Look to Venezuela for a model where you can be imprisoned for the crime of anti state actions.

Most of us here on Free Republic knew all along nothing would come of this. Just as nothing will come of the Benghazi affair.

Are we cynical. Damned right.

Do we have every right to be cynical-—Damned right we do.

Obama and his minions are slicker than snot, when they hide something it stays hidden.

Forget F&F. It is a lost cause and murder is permissible with the communists empire to further their cause. Nothing will come of this investigation as long as King Obama is on the throne.

Even during the height of the Soviet Union, people chronicled the crimes of the regime. It is our duty to continue to educate as many as possible.

Yes, we are well on the way to a Chavista type regime. The MSM has morphed into a regime support structure. Many people vote for Obama as a cult of personality. The Constitution is flouted and press approves. The Congress has been neutered and the press approves. Laws are routinely broken by high officials, and it is approved, ignored, or dismissed.

I will not give up. It was worse during the height of the Roosevelt and Wilson regimes.

Where and when did we lose our soul?

When our Supreme Court decided that it was okay for a woman to murder her unborn child we lost the ability to know right from wrong, ie our soul. It has been straight downhill since then. How can we condemn any form of deviant behavior if we do not condemn the murder of the totally innocent unborn? Our laws do not make sense. We are not allowed to kill someone who does a heinous act but we can kill someone who has not had the opportunity to have a bad thought. What sense does that make? For thousands of years marriage has been between a man and a woman and sodomy was condemned. Today homosexual sex is taught in our schools and it is considered bigoted to prefer that marriage remain a heterosexual institution. I could go on and on but I do believe that the soul of the nation went missing on the day Roe v Wade was decided and that the day it is overturned we will be returned to God’s favor. It is encouraging that pro-life folks now outnumber the murderers.
