“Operation Fast and Furious” Needs To Be A Bigger Story

Flopping Aces: What did the President know and when did he know it?

“The Fast and the Furious” was a gun-running program that allowed thousands of AK-47′s to enter Mexico from the United States ostensibly to allow tracking of their movements. At the same time it allows the AK-47′s to go into Mexico, it is the policy of this administration to arm border patrol agents with bean bags as their first line of defense against AK-47′s.

Such policy got border patrol Brian Terry agent killed in December. Terry was killed with one of the assault rifles that this administration sent into Mexico.

As I noted previously, at first this administration denied that it was policy to arm border patrol agents with bean bags to fight AK’s.

That turned out to be false.

Now Barack Obama claims that neither he nor Eric Holder authorized the operation and was quick to make sure he was free of responsibility.

Keep reading.

We already knew that the Obama administration was committed to protecting illegal immigrants and punishing those who want to take a tough stand on illegal immigration…..that’s bad enough – but literally putting guns into the hands of Mexican crime gangs to kill border agents is more than we as citizens should be willing to take. Who can defend this? How badly do these people hate this country?

Doug Ross reported on July 8, 2010: DOJ encourages illegal immigration by Mexican crime gangs

A study released earlier today calculates that illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers $113 billion annually… And rather than defending America’s citizens, which is his primary duty under the Constitution, President Obama instead has unleashed a professional defender of terrorists to expand his practice — protecting the Mexican crime gangs who now terrorize the southwest.

Two years into this God-forsaken administration, how many scandals have we already seen?  And how many have been all but ignored by the MSM?

DealergateDOJ Black Panther whitewash, the Obamafication of NEA art, the Sestak affair, the politically expedient IG Gerald Walpin firing, misspent Porkulous funds,  the DOJ’s secret astroturf propaganda unit, the Shorebank scandal, oilgate, Blagojevich Rezko Obama corruption, his  unaccountable Communist czars, and that’s just at the top of my head.

Michelle Malkin had written a 400+page book about the culture of corruption in the Obama administration only six months into his administration. Since then, it’s only gotten worse.

Here’s a website that tabulates all of the Obama administration scandals. They include everything from lies and general incompetency to the major scandals, so naturally the number is in the gazillions.

Darrell Issa has pledged to investigate Operation Fast and Furious, but last summer he also promised to investigate most of the criminal activity on the above list, and we got,  what?

According to an outline of the committee’s hearing topics obtained by POLITICO, the House Oversight and Government Reform is also planning to investigate how regulation impacts job creation, the role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the foreclosure crisis; recalls at the Food and Drug Administration and the failure of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission to agree on the causes of the market meltdown. …


Do we the people have any recourse? Do we get to just sit here and watch this stupefying corruption until 2012, knowing there’s no guarantee Obama won’t find a way to steal that election?

  3. Great post. I am not at all surprised at any of this. What i can’ understand is why the congress doesn’t clean house and get rid of all the communist/socialist/Marxist. Why don’t they impeach the president. They all lied when they took the oath of office! Everything he has done has made our economy worse!
