Clearing the Browser Tabs – Why Fast and Furious is Important Thursday Edition

| September 29, 2011 | Reply

I could not agree any more with Bob Owens about Operation Fast and Furious. Save for Sharyl Attkisson at CBS News, the MSM has ignored something that would have sunk a Republican administration by now. Let’s be clear about what the operation really did:

I don’t wish to understate it: elements of the U.S. Departments of Justice, State, Homeland Security, and Treasury are responsible for supplying an arsenal to narco-terrorists waging a civil war against an American ally. Our federal government may bear responsibility for at least 200 murders committed with “walked” firearms, in what Mexican Attorney General Marisela Morales describes as a “betrayal” of her country by the Obama administration.

None of this is in dispute. Every fact is backed up with several pieces of either physical evidence or corroborating witnesses. The only question is how high responsibility for Operation Fast and Furious actually went. We know that White House staffers knew about the program. We know the administration has shuffled around every supervisor involved in the operation, including the head of the BATFE. This all suggests that the real authority for the whole scheme originated at a much higher level than we know at this moment.

We need to find out what happened so we can punish the guilty and make sure it never happens again. People are dead right now and our elected officials put the guns into the hands of the murderers. How anyone can put politics above getting to the truth is beyond me.

And now, links!
