    Late Friday afternoon, Free Beacon reporter CJ Ciaramella requested a comment from the Justice Department about my new book Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup. This was the response he received.

    response at site couldn't bring it over here.

    That's right folks. Media Matters, the far Left website funded by George Soros, is now serving as a mouth piece for the United States Department of Justice. Not only did DOJ refer Ciaramella to Media Matters for information about Operation Fast and Furious, but didn't even refer him to material that had anything to do with his original question about the FBI covering up the existence of a third weapon found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Ciaramella writes:


    The Department of Justice is using the liberal “watchdog” group Media Matters for America to deflect questions about the Fast and Furious scandal, including those regarding a gun that might have been used in the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

    A new book raises questions as to whether the FBI hid the existence of a weapon recovered at the scene of murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. Conservative commentator and author Katie Pavlich lays out evidence she says points to a FBI cover-up to protect a confidential informant in her recently released book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up,

    In response to an inquiry from the Free Beacon, a Justice Department spokeswoman said in an email that she “was told to direct your questions to the FBI, and also to provide you with a link to this story: http://mediamatters.org/research/201204190011”

    The link was to a story at the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America supposedly refuting many of Pavlich’s claims. Media Matters is a partisan organization whose founder, David Brock, is also running a pro-Obama super PAC.

    For more than a year now, Americans have been stonewalled, ignored and disrespected in our quests for information about the Obama administration's lethal Operation Fast and Furious. The fact that the Obama Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, is now sending reporters to the far Left, George Soros funded, Media Matters for factual information about one of the bloodiest scandals in U.S. history, is no surprise and totally predictable. This is just an extension of the Obama administration's shameless coverup and refusal to tell the truth about Fast and Furious. The claims made by Media Matters match up nearly exactly with claims made by Justice Department officials in their defense against involvement in Fast and Furious.

    You seem to have left out the part where the DOJ person said "I was told to direct your questions to the FBI, and also to provide you with a link to this story..."

    It's odd that they'd point out a story on Media Matters, but they were not referring questions to Media Matters. They were referring them to the FBI, and added the Media Matters story after the fact.

    Much ado about nothing.

    don't be a douche. You need not post the whole article, but you 'could' have posted the 2 line DOJ reply you were whining about... you know, the one that essentially makes the premise of your thread a lie?

    pretty much, Steph.

    They said...
    They referred questions to the FBI, then provided a link after that referral.

    Had they said this...
    then you'd have a point.

    You don't. Sorry.

    I call them like I see them, right or left. I've called out just as many right haters as left haters, as my posting history will show.

    I dislike Obama and what he has done and continues to try to do to this country as much as the next conservative... but I'm not going to lie, or accept lies, in order to bolster my position. Sorry.
