In April 2009 Barack Obama traveled to Mexico and blamed US gun sellers for This war being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States. Just to be sure, a few months later the Obama Administration started running their own guns to Mexico, at least 2,000.
Barack Obama, April 16, 2009:
This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States more than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well.
Mexican Attorney General told reporters that Obama is more involved with Operation Fast and Furious than he is admitting.
The Cypress Times reported:
President Barack Obama appears to be getting it from all sides regarding a government snafu dubbed Operation Fast and Furious. Besides both houses of the U.S. Congress and a number of public-interest groups investigating what is being characterized as a rogue federal law enforcement operation, Mexicos attorney general is infuriated over the allegations that the U.S. was behind the smuggling of weapons into Mexico that ended up killing her countrymen.
In a statement released by Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales, she called Operation Fast and Furious an attack on Mexicans security.
Morales told Mexican reporters that she is demanding a full and honest explanation from the United States government especially since evidence is being gathered that reveals the Obama administration was more involved in Operation Fast and Furious than top officials admitted in their sworn statements.
If what is being reported is true, U.S. Attorney General and other government officials may have committed perjury and/or obstruction of justice if its proven they lied when testifying before House and Senate committees.
Operation Fast and Furious was a botched Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives covert operation initiated in order to track more than 2,000 smuggled guns to Mexican drug cartels by allowing gang members to purchase them illegally from U.S. gun stores then take them back to their leaders.
However, according to Congressional reports by both Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA) and Senator Charles Grassley (R-NE), the federal agency lost track of many of the guns. Some later were traced to murders of police and civilians in Mexico and the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry.
If you don't have a crisis to exploit, create one.
Hussein is ignorant, so it's natural for him to assume that the electorate is, too.
He exploits ignorance. Sure, 90% of the weapons seized in Mexico that can be traced have an American origin. What he fails to reveal is that that 95% of the guns in Mexico can't be traced! Lie number one. 90% of 5% is a minuscule number in the ongoing drug driven massacre in Mexico.
Lie number two : I am absolutely onvinced that in their tiny Machiavellian minds it was a great plan to create an excuse to impose additional restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of American Citizens. It blew up in their faces.
Of course they want to declare Executive Privilege!
Sneaky lying bastards!
More evidence. Pre-meditated, agenda-driven murder. It did not matter who died or how many died, when there is an agenda to drive.
Need more agenda evidence? Here...
TREASON. Heads SHOULD ROLL.
R.I.P. Brian Terry
Can't find the link any more, but I read an analysis of that claim, and the majority of the traceable arms were "liberated" from the Mexican army by soldiers who went over to the other side, and took weapons with them. Those weapons were bought from US arms manufacturers, either by the Mexican government, or by the US government and given to Mexico. Those weapons are counted as "having an American origin".
Thanks E. Pluribus Unum.
Hillary Clinton also big in this 2009 campaign, one of her first acts as SoS was hauling her fat important axx down to Mexico to apologizeo for US guns causing Mexico violence
What are the chances obama’s “executive privilge” order is to protect Hillary (the ace-in-the-hole VP to replace Biden) as well as obama?
Has Bubba uttered any comments on this?
“Hillary Clinton also big in this 2009 campaign, one of her first acts as SoS was hauling her fat important axx down to Mexico to apologizeo for US guns causing Mexico violence”
Yes she was part of this thing. I hope someone has the video of her part in this.
Now THIS is the correct information to give latino’s when any republican goes to talk in their community. This is what 0 thinks of your precious illegals and potential future immigrants and illegals, he sends guns into Mexico and doesn’t think twice about getting them killed.
the plot thickens
Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales is a RACIST !!!
The crux of this plan was to go after gun stores via paperwork trials and shut them down. Since there were not any doing this on their own they coerced some to get involved with them knowingly selling to criminals saying it’d be okay because the government was tracking them.
Before it blewup on them, they were going to hang these gun stores that helped them out to dry. And use them as a fake crisis to clamp down on gun rights across the board by putting back in a stronger assault weapons ban.
F&F worked exactly as planned -- no "botch" involved!!
That scene cannot come too soon...
Amen. I'd even settle for a resignation right now.
