Posted on 01/21/2013 7:28:11 AM PST by george76
While Holder prepares to use all the powers of the Department of Justice and ATF to push through President Obama's new gun control agenda, he is more than happy to ignore Operation Fast and Furious. As a reminder, this was the DOJ program that allowed the deliberate trafficking of military style assault AK-47s to violent Mexican drug cartels south of the border. Let's not forget Holder has not only refused to cooperate with Congress when it comes to turning over documents about the lethal scandal (death toll is 400 people and counting), he's asked a court to indefinitely hold documents requested by Congress and through FOIA.
(2) Under Obama and Holder's leadership, prosecutions of gun related crimes are down by 40 percent.
(3) Holder argues, "we have repeatedly seen in the most tragic ways how easy it can be for dangerous people to acquire and to wreak havoc with deadly weapons." Yeah, like in Mexico as a result of his own DOJ program during which ATF and DOJ officials watched known criminals for an entire year purchase guns, guns they knew would then be transferred to violent Mexican cartels and used in murders.
(4) We can save lives by not deliberatly arming cold-blooded murderers, as Holder's DOJ did.

It was not bad enough, that the “Fast & Furious” scheme was shipping guns to Mexico.
A similar scam is operating under the radar transferring arms to jihadists in Syria, Egypt, Libya and Algeria. Maybe not being run by the Just-Us department, but with the same overall effect.
Weapons being put in the hands of terroristic bandits.
It should read ‘Eric Holder again displays hypocrisy, this time on Gun Control’.
Yea, just like I investigated the New Black Panther Brothers in Philly ....
If you add the Mexican and Mid-East chapters of F&F you’re talking about machine-guns, RPG’s, 22,000 anti-aircraft missiles, and lots more.
And the end-users were not average people walking down the street; they were Narco Kingpins and Al Qaeda —much worse than some autistic video-gamers on Prozac.
Worldwide F&F is 1,000 times bigger than Iran Contra and so far NO ONE has been gone to jail or has even been jailed, the media has imposed nearly a total blackout.
The left apparently has an unquenchable need to use the spookiest covert-ops, and all for the shakiest,pie-in-the-sky foreign policy objectives.
I can’t believe what a fiasco this insect of a Prez has turned out to be.
