    (Apparently, as a captured Zeta cartel member described it some months ago, not only was ATF letting guns walk south of the border into the Narco terrorist's hands willy nilly, the Government, itself, was actually selling the weapons to the Narco terrorists in what is coming to look more and more like a deliberate Federal Government attempt to stifle public resistance to a Government attempt to deprive the American people of their Second Amendment privileges.
    That changes powerlineblog's John Hinderakers two possible observations of Mr Obama to now just one inevitable conclusion. No longer can we suspect that Mr Obama be regarded as possibly a well intentioned man, but stupid, he is now to be regarded as simply fundamentally evil.)

    "Not only did U.S. officials approve, allow and assist in the sale of more than 2,000 guns to the Sinaloa cartel -- the federal government used taxpayer money to buy semi-automatic weapons, sold them to criminals and then watched as the guns disappeared.

    This disclosure, revealed in documents obtained by Fox News, could undermine the Department of Justice's previous defense that Operation Fast and Furious was a "botched" operation where agents simply "lost track" of weapons as they were transferred from one illegal buyer to another. Instead, it heightens the culpability of the federal government as Mexico, according to sources, has opened two criminal investigations into the operation that flooded their country with illegal weapons

    Operation Fast and Furious began in October 2009. In it, federal agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives encouraged gun stores to sell weapons to an arms smuggling gang, then watched as the guns crossed the border and were used in crimes. Each month, the agency allowed hundreds of guns to go South, despite opposition from some agents.

    All told, the gang spent more than $1.25 million for the illegal guns.

    In June 2010, however, the ATF dramatically upped the ante, making the U.S. government the actual "seller" of guns.

    According to documents obtained by Fox News, Agent John Dodson was ordered to buy six semi-automatic Draco pistols -- two of those were purchased at the Lone Wolf gun store in Peoria, Ariz. An unusual sale, Dodson was sent to the store with a letter of approval from David Voth, an ATF group supervisor.

    Dodson then sold the weapons to known illegal buyers, while fellow agents watched from their cars nearby."

    This is well into the impeachable offense category, a very, very high crime and misdeameanor.

    Make no mistake about it. This was dreamed up to undermine the second. There should be hundreds doing federal prison time.

    September 29, 2011 Washington — They were being stored for shipment to Mexico, documents show. It's the first case of vanished weapons from the surveillance program showing up on this side of the border outside the Phoenix area.

    Memo: Holder told of ‘Fast and Furious’ as early as July 2010
    Tuesday, October 4, 2011 - Newly obtained Justice Department memos show that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. was told about the controversial “Fast and Furious” weapons investigation as early as July 2010, apparently contradicting testimony he gave before a House committee in May saying he learned of the operation just weeks earlier.

    White House Clarifies That Obama Disclosed Knowing About Operation Fast and Furious on CNN Espanol in March
    October 5, 2011 – President Barack Obama said he heard about the botched federal gunrunning operation Fast and Furious “on the news” and related that point in a March 22 interview on CNN Espanol. At the White House today, Press Secretary Jay Carney, when asked about when Obama learned of the operation, first said it was during a press conference in El Salvador but later clarified to CNSNews.com that it was on the CNN program, which had aired that same day.

    (Oops!! CBS bad! Very bad! A certain CBS reporter drifted into the domain of one Laura Ingraham, evil Conservative talk show host, and revealed that the WhiteHouse was screaming at her for her revealing that Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States, had gone to Congress and lied to them. Now CBS, the organization the reporter works for, has dutifully circled the wagons regarding this reporter, probably after the WhiteHouse approached someone more senior at CBS than the reporter, and informed them in no uncertain terms that CBS News responsibility was protecting this president first, reporting the news second, especially in the case of this Democratic administration.)

    "Everyone else was being “reasonable,” but Attkisson was violating the reporters’ code by not covering up for a Democratic president. Now it appears that Attkisson’s bosses at CBS may be forcing her to be “reasonable” like those other “news” outlets:


    Today, I called CBS News in an attempt to interview Attkisson. I was told by CBS News senior vice president of communications Sonya McNair that Attkisson would be unavailable for interviews all week. When I asked why Attkisson would be unavailable, McNair would not say.

    I’ve also heard from a producer at another media outlet that has previously booked Attkisson that they tried to book her since she made news with the Laura Ingraham interview yesterday. They were also told that she would be unavailable.

    After our initial conversation earlier today, I called McNair back and left a message with her office. I also sent McNair an email asking whether Attkisson’s unavailability has anything to do with reporting that the White House and Justice Department were angry at her. I further asked McNair if the White House or Justice Department contacted CBS News about Attkisson since yesterday. McNair has not responded to my inquiries



    We live in a strange era, in which our dominant news organizations consider it their most important function to prevent certain news from reaching the eyes and ears of the public.

    By the way, if you wondered about Eric Schultz, the White House spokesman who screamed and swore at Attkisson, his bio is here. He is a one-man rogues’ gallery:


    Eric Schultz is headed to the White House communications shop after serving as Communications Director at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) for the 2010 cycle. At the White House, Schultz will directly handle press matters related to the U.S. Department of Justice and investigations held by the House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA).

    Previously, Schultz handled press for Al Franken’s 2008 Senate campaign and was National Press Secretary for the 2008 presidential bid of Sen. John Edwards (D-NC)."

    CBS News, not as egregious today as they were in former years, along with their star reporter, Walter Cronkite, supplying their good offices and helicopter transport to ferry anti VietNam war speaker Edmund Muskie from one speaking engagement to another at a time when their nation was at war, a veritable act of treason, at a time when CBS News controlled all the microphones and loudspeakers, so who was to know besides the FBI?

    (The "Be careful what you wish for" in the accompanying article is good advice with this administration, well know for its deviousness and duplicity. Letting Eric Holder name the man responsible for investigating him and this president could end up just putting a cork in this, allowing it to dry up and blow away. The following is a true story reminder of just what evil governments are capable of: A long time ago in a country far away, a newly appointed head of state, on his way to becoming absolute dictator, took a dislike to a certain General, Head of the General Staff. His followers went out and scoured the countryside for witnesses that would allege they had seen this General amusing himself, busily bent over young men and boys in various darkened, empty courtyards and back alleyways. After hearing their testimony against him the General submitted his resignation.The General had scarcely left the building when the witnesses were escorted out into the adjacent courtyard and shot.")

    Fast and Furious: Let It Bleed
    James G. Wiles

    Be careful what you wish for, House Republicans, over the metastasizing Operation "Fast and Furious" scandal at the U.S. Department of Justice. You just might get it.

    A Special Prosecutor, I mean. That's exactly what, as we move into the 2012 election year, the GOP shouldn't want.

    From a GOP political perspective, Operation "Fast and Furious" is the kind of thing you pray to Jesus for. A year before a national election, the story breaks that some numb nuts at Main DOJ -- the agency formerly known as ATF, to be specific -- conceived a novel idea for catching Mexican cartels (and their U.S. firearms suppliers) in illegal gun smuggling. Here's how: let's have the U.S. Government give the gun dealers guns so they can be smuggled.

    Lots of guns -- at least count, at least 2,000 of them.

    It worked too. Oh, my, how it worked.

    The US government-supplied weapons were duly purchased by the bad guys. They were then duly "walked" into Mexico. You'll never guess what happened next.

    The Mexican gun cartels used the U.S.-provided guns to kill Mexicans. Lots of Mexicans. The complete death toll is still being tallied.

    The Mexican government is beside itself. And ATF has a new acting head.

    That's only the beginning. The paper trail for this too-stupid-to-live idea, it's emerging, leads directly into the top level of DOJ - to Attorney General Eric Holder and the head of the Criminal Division, to be precise.

    Wait, I'm not done. It gets better.

    The trail of e-mails also leads into the White House. and it appears that testimony by Attorney General Holder before the House Judiciary Committee about when he first knew about Operation "Fast and Furious" can reasonably be viewed as being false. In response to a question, Holder said he first heard of it only recently, when the scandal broke. Documents produced this week in response to Congressional subpoenas suggest otherwise.

    Oops.

    The Obama White House knows it has a real problem on its hands (another one, I mean, besides all the others). The whole thing's going viral as we speak.

    In Washington-speak: this baby's got legs"

    "Felony Stupid" has been one description used to describe this Administration's part in and handling of Gunwalker: Fast and Furious.Today comes the news out of Senator Charles Grassley's office that Eric Holder received five (5) e-mails regrding Fast and Furious long before his forked tongued appearance before Darrell Issa's Committee last May.
