There is a massive scandal in the Obama regime. It is not only a huge scandal, but there is a cover up to go along with it. What is the scandal? Why isn’t it being covered by the media and perhaps most importantly, why haven’t there been indictments?
The scandal is Operation Fast and Furious. The idea was to allow high-powered weapons to be “walked” across the border from the United States into Mexico. These weapons were then going to be tracked. While most of these weapons were AK-47’s, some of them were Barrett .50 caliber rifles. The Barrett is a rifle that has a range of over 1 mile and is used to penetrate armored targets.
That makes about as much sense as spreading gasoline in a house and lighting a match just to see how the fire spreads. The results have been very predictable.
In Mexico, at least 200 murders have been traced to weapons provided through Operation Fast and Furious. The tally is certainly much higher than just 200, but the only way to prove one of those weapons was involved is to find the weapon at the scene of the crime.
More disturbing is the fact that those guns have been involved in eleven crimes in the United States, including the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
When Operation Fast and Furious first came to light, both Mexico and the Obama regime were pushing the same talking point. Uncontrolled gun sales were allowing high-powered firearms to flood Mexico. In other words, it was America’s fault. Turns out high-powered firearms were being sent to Mexico from America. And that was Obama’s fault.
When the GOP took control of Congress earlier this year, Congressman Darryl Issa began an investigation into Operation Fast and Furious. Immediately, the Attorney General and the Department of Justice began stonewalling.
This is the biggest scandal and cover up since Watergate. Where is the media?
The drive by media has not been pushing this story for a couple of reasons. First, the President is a liberal democrat and the drive by media is in the tank for Obama. Had this happened during George Bush’s term, Operation Fast and Furious would be on everyone’s lips. All of the major drive by media would have investigative reports out and there would already be calls for impeachment and indictment.
There is another reason why the media is not pushing this scandal. That is the open border between Mexico and America. If the media gives Operation Fast and Furious the hard investigation it deserves, the American public is going to find out exactly how bad things are on the border. Those guns were supposed to go south of the border but guess what? They came back up!
What else comes through that border? Illegal aliens, drugs and at this point it would defy logic to think Islamic terrorists from the Middle East have not come up through Mexico.
As long as Obama and the Party of Treason control the Attorney General’s office, there will never be an investigation of this disaster. One promise we need from whichever Republican we get elected in 2012 is that one of his first actions as President will be to order the criminal division of the Department of Justice to open an investigation into Operation Fast and Furious. We need to know who ordered it and who covered it up. We need to know what did they know and when did they know it. That question needs to go all the way to Obama.
A new Department of Justice needs to empanel a grand jury to investigate Operation Fast and Furious and let the indictments come!
Cute metaphor, but actually he is 50% white, 40% Arab, and only 10% African.
He couldn't even qualify for a Pigford Farmer illegal payment. Not black enough!
You are most correct.
