The first thing observers of the Congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking” noticed about the Justice Department’s Tuesday document dump was the calculated way it was done concurrently with the elections, when it would be certain not to dominate the news. That’s hardly surprising for those who expect nothing less than a continuation of a pattern of evasion, stonewalling, deception and obstruction that’s defined the way Attorney General Eric Holder has continually thumbed his nose at the entire process since it began.
That in itself was interesting enough, but missed by most observers was an admission in the cover letter that the State Department had a hand in redacting information from the 64,000+ pages submitted to Congress. The question of Hillary Clinton’s involvement, particularly as it relates to either actions sanctioned by State, or violations of arms export control laws by other federal agencies, is a significant dimension of the story that’s been largely unexplored.
But the media did “get it,” in many cases, directly from Holder’s public affairs chief, Tracy Schmaler. In others, they “got it” from ATF personnel, up to their necks in “gunwalking,” who tried to smear key whistleblower John Dodson by releasing confidential personnel files.
That email was the subject of an NPR feature that, true to its “progressive” sympathies, did what it could to muddle the facts and absolve Holder.
“The program has been blamed for providing a weapon that was used to kill U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry,” it said about Fast and Furious.
No, it, or more precisely, the evil minds behind the program, were to blame. There’s no dispute about that.
FK – Expecting National Propaganda Radio to tell the truth is like expecting the pig to give up the mud hole. That’s another thing for the newly elected republicrats to do, de-fund the commie trash.
It’s time for the newly elected ‘conservatives’ to be proactive, start repealing gun laws and other infringements on our Liberty instead of standing around with their fingers in the dike and expecting to be rewarded for much less than their duty demands.
FK – A right applied for is a privilege. The point is that no jr. nazi can arrest someone just because they’re seen with a gun:
FK – This last post is on a commie site. My comments which will likely be removed. Oh sorry, they have to be ‘approved.’:
Every piece of trash involved with prosecuting this young man should be arrested, tried for treason and executed.
There’s so such thing as a good ‘gun law.’ All gun control is propaganda designed to condition the sheeple to accept more control with total civilian disarmament being the final objective thus all gun control is an act of war. All who forward it should be arrested, tried for treason against human Liberty and executed.
Time to get ready for what will be required.
