    [The juxtaposition of so many anti gun folks all crowded together and given time to cobble up a few nefarious plots in order to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people is looking more and more a likely scenario every passing day. You had plenty of motive, and they had the opportunity. Amazing that you had so many anti gun folks all crowded together working on what was to be their crowning achievement and they let it go so wrong, so fast. The next logical question is 'How stupid can you get'? The only answer short of a jail term Holder can give is 'Pretty damn stupid.]

    "•Various individuals were planning to illegally resell firearms in Mexico;
    •That these individuals had already purchased large numbers of firearms, many of which were later found in Mexico;
    •The various methods by which these individuals planned to illegally resell, and in fact illegally sold, these firearms;
    •That surveillance on the individuals in question had already failed on several occasions;
    •That guns purchased by these individuals had already been found at Mexican crime scenes;
    •And that the individuals in question did not have the personal resources to make the purchases in question.

    …and we know this because, to quote Darrell Issa, these individual “signed these applications on behalf of Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer.” All of this is in flagrant disagreement with the administration’s position, which is essentially that nobody sufficiently important to be embarrassing to the administration knew the details of Operation Fast & Furious prior to Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s (whose name Democrats keep forgetting) murder (with Fast & Furious firearms found on the scene) in December of 2010.

    The very next day, nine of these firearms were recovered during a police stop of a third person in Douglas, Arizona, on the U.S.-Mexico border. Five days later, Straw Purchaser Z bought another 43 firearms from an FFL. On December 24, 2009, Straw Purchaser Z bought even more firearms, purchasing 40 AK–47 type rifles from an FFL. All of these rifles were recovered on January 13, 2010, in El Paso, Texas, near the U.S./Mexico border. Although the individual found in possession of all these guns provided the first name of the purchaser, agents did not arrest the individual or the purchaser. Though the wiretap application states that agents were conducting surveillance of known straw purchasers, none of these weapons were interdicted. No arrests were made.


    The wiretap affidavit also details the very sort ‘‘time-to-crime’’ for many of the firearms purchased during Fast nd Furious. For example, on November 6, 2009, November 12, 2009, and November 14, 2009, Straw Purchaser Y purchased a total of 25 AK–47 type firearms from an FFL in Arizona. On November 20, 2009—just eight days later—Mexican officials recovered 17 of these firearms in Naco, Sonora, Mexico. Another straw purchaser, Straw Purchaser Q, purchased a total of 17 AK–47 type firearms from an FFL on November 3, 2009, November 10, 2009, and November 12, 2009. Then, on December 9, 2009, Mexican officials recovered 11 of these firearms in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, along with approximately 421 kilograms of cocaine, 60 kilograms of methamphetamine, 48 additional firearms, 392 ammunition cartridges, $2 million in U.S. currency, and $800,000 in Mexican currency.

    The affidavit provides details of the straw purchasers’ financial records. As of March 15, 2010, just four straw purchasers had spent $373,206 in cash on firearms. Yet, these same straw purchasers had only minimal earnings in Fiscal Year (FY) 2009. Straw Purchaser Q earned $214 per week, while Straw Purchaser Y earned only $188 per week. Straw Purchaser Z earned $9,456.92 during FY 2009, and Straw Purchaser X did not report any income whatsoever.

    Name Money spent on firearms by 3/15/10 FY 2009 income*
    Straw Purchaser Y …………………… $128,580 $9,776
    Straw Purchaser Q …………………… 64,929 11,128
    Straw Purchaser X …………………… 39,663 None reported
    Straw Purchaser Z …………………… 140,034 9,456
    Total ………………………………. $373,206

    *Incomes based on weekly incomes detailed in wiretap application"


    [Then there is this. One of the biggest gun grabbers in the Democratic Party oversaw the whole thing from the start and for Holder to say these guys were't up to NFG, they were just a bunch of teenagers amusing themselves in a treehouse while all of this was going on is absurd. Its just not follow the money, its follow the people, and the most nefarious and the biggest liar of them all is Barack Hussein Obama. Obama had the Second Amendment in his sights almost as soon as he finished the oath of office.]

    "(CNSNews.com) — Dennis K. Burke, who as a lawyer for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee in the 1990s was a key player behind the enactment of the 1994 assault-weapons ban, and who then went on to become Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano’s chief of staff, and contributor to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential primary campaign, and a member of Obama’s transition team focusing on immigration issues, ended up in the Obama administration as the U.S. attorney in Arizona responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious.

    When Obama nominated Burke to be U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona, Burke told the Arizona Capitol Times he believed he understood what the president and his attorney general wanted him to do.

    “There’s clearly been direction provided already by President Obama and Attorney General Holder as to what they want to be doing, and this is an office that is at the center of the issues of border enforcement,” said Burke. . . . After Obama was elected in November 2008, Burke joined his presidential transition team, serving on the Immigration Policy Working Group.

    Eight days before Obama’s inauguration, on Jan. 12, 2009 — while Burke was working on the transition team — Obama met with Mexican President Felipe Calderon at the Mexican Cultural Institute in Washington, D.C. At that meeting, Obama “pledged” to take action to stop the flow of guns from the United States to Mexico."
