You know what else backfired? Iraq and Afganistan. Yet conservatives want to
keep bringing up this small operation as if Obama had a direct hand in it's
operation. You know how that got started? Rush Limbot had nothing
else to talk about that day. He couldn't find any real dirt on Obama so he
makes it up. I'm from Arizona. I guarantee they didn't
care what Obama thought as they continued the operation. This is the reddest of
red states and you want to blame it's operations on Obama?
The Dept. of Justice has investigated itself and found that -- surprise! -- the
Attorney General was oblivious.This conclusion is implausible. As
Jim Geraghty wrote last week: "Time and again, information and warnings
about the operation's enormous risks flow from Arizona to Washington
… and suddenly, mysteriously, stop just short of Holder."Further..."Repeatedly, everyone under Holder seems to do
everything possible to make sure he isn't informed about an operation that,
in the words of the IG report, failed 'to adequately consider the risk to
public safety in the United States and Mexico'. In fact, information about
the program went all the way to Holder's office – but somehow, the
memos, emails and other communications never reached the man himself. It's
as if he wasn't there."Documents exist which may shed light
on the matter, but Obama has invoked executive privilege over them. It's
time for an independent investigation.
Obama lied about fast and furious and then issued an executive order to cover it
up! He blamed in on GWB (surprise, surprise) but it has been proven since that
it was indeed started and accomplished entirely on his watch! Corruption, lies
and cover-ups in the highest office of the land!
Right. Being Attourney General makes you in charge of everything in the entire
US. He goes to every meeting and is obviously the planner of every operation. I
know all this because Limbot told me so. Now if Limbot is so
connected and so smart, why didn't he blow the whistle on this before it
happened? Why didn't the conservatives in Arizona stop it? We've been
controlled by conservatives for 30 years here. You have nothing. The entire
thing is rediculous.
@ Screwdriver. Why didn’t the conservatives (Jan Brewer) in Arizona stop
fast and furious? Because it was and is a federal mess, a federal cover-up and
federal corruption! Besides, as you know, Obama issued another executive order
to cover it up. I am certain if this had happened under a Republican
administration, you would be leading the opposition to get to the bottom of this
scandal! The difference is conservative crooks have to leave office in disgrace;
liberal crooks get protected, admired and even promoted!
Guns don't kill people, people kill people the motto of the conservative
NRA member. But if we're trying to pin something on a democrat, then
it's the guns that do the killing.Why isn't Holder a
hero Like Ollie North?
@Happy Valley HereticHolder is in charge of an organization that
deliberately walked guns to known criminals, who used them to kill a border
agent and a couple of hundred Mexican citizens. He's either clueless or
complicit. Which is it?
