Read Katherine Eban's in-depth and meticulously documented article, "The Truth about the Fast and Furious Scandal" published June 27 in Fortune Magazine before going any farther on this.

The reality of the Fast and Furious ATF "scandal" is not remotely what the conservatives are trying to make you believe.

Most telling is the conservative blogosphere's reaction to Eban's well-researched article. They hate it, but they can't refute it.

Gee, what ever happened to the "Guns don't kill people. People kill people." view of guns and their nominal "control"?

Blue,

The right would rather be infuriated by falsehoods than content with the truth.

@ Blue and JoeBlow

What does "the right" have to do with this scandal? Nice try at diversion, but it doesn't work. It appears the left has had the problem with the truth--and more importantly, acknowledging it. It wasn't "the right" that put the guns into the hands of the cartel.

Obama's administration supplied those weapons to gangs. It was not Bush who did it. It was not Santa Claus who did it. It was Obama and his cohorts. As usual, they point a finger at Bush, whose program was entirely different than Obama's "fast and furious" program.

Those who believe the lies that Obama is telling and has told will continue to support him in his lies.

People are dead because of the "fast and furious" program. Terry is dead and many other Americans have been wounded because of "fast and furious". Those things don't matter to Obama's supporters. To them, Obama can do no wrong, even when Americans die because of his actions.

Spin it if you wish, but then your lies are part of Obama's lies and your actions support the actions of Obama.

There is nothing in "fast and furious" that is noble. It is just another program gone wrong - just like every other program that originated with Obama and the friends of Obama.

When things go wrong, they blame others. They may not hold themselves accountable, but those of us who hate lies hold them accountable.

Oh please, Mike. If your guy takes office you'll be pumping the next war within weeks. First, bombing, then invading, then torturing the survivors and finally wondering why the "terrorists" still left don't seem very much like mainstream Republicans. "Collateral damage"? Lots of that, too. And it will all be a "success" because the oil will keep flowing. That's your idea of full employment.

But Iran Contra made Ollie North and Reagan a Hero to the right.
