It seems Eric Holder lied to congress… perjury if you will and that is a felony (18 U.S.C. § 1001 : US Code – Section 1001: Statements or entries generally)
See Eric “Liar” Holder told congress that he knew nothing about Operation “Fast and Furious” AKA Operation Gunwalker AKA Project Gunrunner. Frankly, I think that have all these different names to give themselves cover and excuses… they say they are all different operations but they all go back to the drug war and the ATF and Eric Holder of which Holder claims he just found out about it…
Really Eric? Really? You’re going to lie to congress…
From BigGovernment.com – Anyway, the problem with Holder’s feigned ignorance is that he gave a speech in Cuernavaca, Mexico, on April 2, 2009, in which he boasted about Operation “Gunrunner” and told Mexican authorities of everything he was doing to insure its success.
Holder told the audience:
Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. (Italics mine)
Whoa! 2009!! Well isn’t that over two years before he testified to congress and claimed it was only a couple of weeks? I think so – and that my friend is a lie and a felony. Two American law enforcement agents killed because of these gunrunning project… but they say it’s not to control gun sales… no, no, no! It’s to track weapons… BUT they never put a single tracking device in any weapon… not a beeper, not a GPS, not a homing device… NOTHING! Tracking weapons my ass it was for stricter gun control and to hell with who gets killed! What ever it takes to move their agenda forward… and a armed citizenry is the natural enemy of a socialist government.
But I know what you’re asking or should be… who paid for all these guns to send to Mexico? Why you paid for it – thanks to the Obama porkulus plan – bolded by me…
For an additional amount for ‘‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.
Holder lied and if it was budgeted in the Stimulus Plan then IMHO by default Obama knew about it too and and also in my lowly opinion they need to go to jail, at least Holder does as he is on record lying to congress.
Eric Holder gave false info. to a Congressional Committee last May about ATF operations tied to the deaths of two U.S. Agents; we have the proof.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Special Agent Jaime Zapata from ICE both died from weapons that were sent to Mexico from the United States. There is no knowledge as to how many lives the U.S. weapons smuggling programs claimed in Mexico.
(SALEM, Ore.) – New information indicates that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions are squarely behind the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) operation known as “Fast and Furious”, which orchestrated the delivery of almost 2,000 weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
Holder openly proclaimed his connection to the operation in April 2009 during a publicized speech in Mexico, then told a Congressional Committee in May 2011, “I probably heard of Fast and Furious the first time in the last few weeks.”
The ATF weapons smuggling ring involved the arrest of several government officials with the city of Columbus, New Mexico including the mayor and police chief, but that is all.
They were apparently known from the beginning and the weapons deals with ‘straw buyers’ were videotaped. Smuggled U.S. weapons from this operation, described as mostly semi automatic versions of military weapons like the AK-47, were found to be used in the shooting deaths of two U.S. federal agents.
The new information, which is not really new at all, proves that Holder had to be aware of the U.S. government weapons smuggling operation planned and implemented by federal agents from ATF which he denied to Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) less than two months ago, as detailed below.
Holder needs to go and he needs to stand trail for lying to congress and the American people and furthermore – at the very least he needs to explain in person the the families of Terry and Zapata why they died? And if I was a liberal I’d say Holder needs to be tried to murder, but he can’t and I’m not – so I’m not going to make those wild ass statements.
In my opinion I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that the primary reason of Operation Fast and Furious was to have tangible evidence that American guns were causing multiple deaths in the Mexican drug war and because of that we need to crack down on guns all across the land. Liberals hate guns (weird since all the movies and games they make are full of them) – Obama hates guns and he hates middle American clinging to their guns and religion and he’d like nothing better than to take them away and and flip middle America the bird.
I don’t think it’s any surprise to anyone that the Obama administration of corrupt and full of liars, cheaters and thief’s – but this band of miscreants needs to go, I’m sick of all of them.
