Pity lead House GOP investigator Rep. Darrell Issa of California. Its his misfortune that he isnt looking into matters about which the Obama administration can talk freely namely, all its covert national-security programs.
If Justice Department documents that Issa's committee seeks from Attorney General Eric Holder had been the subject of a top-secret meeting in the White House Situation Room, their contents already wouldve been splashed across the media. Issa could read the A-1 New York Times story and be done with it.
But the Holder documents are an entirely different matter. They relate to the bizarrely misconceived Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed guns purchased from US shops to fall into the hands of Mexican drug gangs on the theory that . . . well, it's not clear exactly what the theory was. Somehow, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives thought that letting 2,000 guns walk into the arsenals of bad actors with no means of tracking them would be a devastating blow against gun-trafficking.
The cone of silence has slammed shut on the latest batch of Fast and Furious documents subpoenaed by Issa. When its a secret, high-tech program to disrupt Iran's nuclear program, administration officials are chatty and expansive; when its documents that could further embarrass Holder, their rule is loose lips sink ships. President Obama is making a dubious...
From the start, Holder's Justice Department hasn't been able to keep its story straight on Fast and Furious, although its always insisted that top officials had no prior knowledge of it. In a February 2011 letter, it told Congress that the ATF made every effort to interdict the guns before they got into Mexico (wrong) and that it hadn't sanctioned or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons to suspicious people (false)...

“The real question is would Romney allow prosecutions under his administration. I’m not hopeful about that.”
If he did not, it would follow the pattern of new Potus shutting the door on the past.
If his main tasks are to improve our economy and keep us safe, it might be more wise to avoid the distraction.
Bush didn’t continue pursuit of Clinton and his cronnies.
I would see that as nothing more than a continuation of the corruption and a stamp of approval for it.
The elites play hugball among themselves and fob other people off with anything the elites think they'll believe.
When it was time to prosecute Slick, Dubya sent Rove out to hand us some bullshine about not wanting to let Slick upstage The President's agenda with a bunch of courtroom histrionics and sucking all the air out of the room, mediawise. (Oh, yeah --- can't let that precious "in" with Media go!)
Arizona is the new 'corridor' for all illegal trafficking which will be controlled by (and provide funds to) our government, Mexico's government, organized crime (cartels), and a string of politicians willing to take bribes.
They even have signs up in Arizona declaring it the 'new corridor' and Warn US citizens to STAY OUT.
What is the more significant fact is that so many in Media worship him for it and grovel before his perfumed-and-anointed herm, because they're gay themselves and have been stealthily but steadily running "normal" straight people out of Media for 25 or 30 years now.
The propaganda orgy over Philadelphia coming out at the same time as the Mathew Shepard story was almost 20 years ago now -- 1994.
...And Holder is 0bama’s Stedman..
Creating a synthetic crisis as an excuse to take rights away from an entire nation.
It's been done before.

Thanks for the ping!
That’s pretty much what I expect too.
Article I read said the locks on their SUV “apparently malfunctioned allowing easy access for the attackers”
Congressional investigators permitted to view Department of Homeland Security documents related to the Fast and Furious operation have located and seen an Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) Report of Investigation (ROI) from August 2010 describing 80 weapons seized in an arms smuggling interdiction between Phoenix, Arizona and San Antonio, Texas. Of these weapons, the majority (approximately 50) were noted to have come from Operation Fast & Furious in Arizona, purchased by Uriel Patino and Jacob Chambers. The ROI was written and signed by Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent Jaime Zapata, who was shot dead in an ambush at a fake roadblock in San Luis Potosí, Mexico on 15 February 2011. At the time of the report, Agent Zapata was assigned to the Laredo office.
Armored SUV could not protect U.S. agents in Mexico
Forced off the road in a well-coordinated ambush, surrounded by drug cartel gunmen brandishing AK-47s, Zapata and his partner, Victor Avila, rolled to a stop. Zapata put the vehicle in park.
The door locks popped open.
That terrifying sound a quiet click set into motion events that remain under investigation. When Zapata needed it most, the Suburbans elaborate armoring was rendered worthless by a consumer-friendly automatic setting useful for family vacations and hurried commuters but not for U.S. agents driving through a red zone in Mexico.
I bet there’s some modifications & retrofitting since then, at least I hope so.
I heard an audio tape from CBS reporter Sheryl Atkinson which was a Conversation between an ATF or FBI agent talking with a Gun Dealer where there was a Discussion about a Third Gun Used in that Killing,The statement was Made that if the third gun was found that would create a real Problem and the Agent said dont worry that Gun would Never be found,dont worry.
According to Rush, the Bush Administration projects to which F & F has tendentiously been compared differed in two very minor respects:
Other than that, not too much difference between the two . . .
- the Bush Administration coordinated its program with the Mexican government whereas the Obama Administration didn't, and
- the weapons in the Bush Administration bugged the weapons it used to actively try to track where the guns went, and interdict their use in lawless activities south of the border. Whereas the Obama Administration actively prevented anyone from tracking the F & F guns.
</sarcasm>The Bush Administration discontinued its program when the bad guys learned how to defeat the tracking devices the Feds had secreted in the guns. The Obama Adminstration didnt even try to track theirs.
IOW, the Bushies were trying something tricky, and it didnt work so they quit. The Obamites were trying something tricky, too - but the joke was on the American - and Mexican - people.Speaking of the Mexicans who were affected by F & F weapons, Mexicans, in Mexico, dont matter to liberals. Let one cross into Arizona, tho, and suddenly they are hispanics, and their rights are paramount. So instead of referring to the people killed in Mexico by F&F weapons as Mexicans" we should emphasize their humanity calling them hispanics."
I wouldn’t even want that in a family car.
Aren’t those FedMob LEAs wonderful? That’s like the steel clad front door from David Koresh’s Waco “compound.” Just disappeared from a locked evidence storage locker. How do you just lose an 80” X 36” X 1 3/4” door?
