    Officials Cover Up Culpability For Gun Smuggling And Murder.

    A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters. Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site. We now know the horrifying truth: Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels. He was a victim of his own government. This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials. It is President Obama’s Watergate.

    Operation Fast and Furious was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and overseen by the Justice Department. It started under the leadership of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Fast and Furious enabled straw gun purchases from licensed dealers in Arizona, in which more than 2,000 weapons were smuggled to Mexican drug kingpins. ATF claims it was seeking to track the weapons as part of a larger crackdown on the growing violence in the Southwest. Instead, ATF effectively has armed murderous gangs. About 300 Mexicans have been killed by Fast and Furious weapons. More than 1,400 guns remain lost. Agent Terry likely will not be the last U.S. casualty.

    Mr. Holder insists he was unaware of what took place until after media reports of the scandal appeared in early 2011. This is false. Such a vast operation only could have occurred with the full knowledge and consent of senior administration officials. Massive gun-running and smuggling is not carried out by low-level ATF bureaucrats unless there is authorization from the top. There is a systematic cover-up.

    Congressional Republicans, however, are beginning to shed light on the scandal. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Rep. Darrell Issa of California, a congressional probe is exposing the Justice Department’s rampant criminality and deliberate stonewalling. Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, who heads the department’s criminal division, helped craft a February letter to Congress that denied ATF had ever walked guns into Mexico. Yet, under pressure from congressional investigators, the department later admitted that Mr. Breuer knew about ATF gun-smuggling as far back as April 2010. In other words. Mr. Breuer has been misleading Congress. He should resign or be fired.

    Unfortunately, this administration is even more corrupt than Nixon's... couple that with a Democrat controlled Congress, nothing will come of this.

    Fast & Furious is much worse than Watergate. Many innocent people have been murdered with Holder's weapons,including Brian Terry. It's a real nightmare. I hope Terry's family does get justice.

    They control the Senate and WH. That trumps the House.

    Why hasn't Obama fired his ass????? Holder was in charge, so he really has NO excuse. It's bull that he didn't know anything. Whether he did or not doesn't matter, it's his job....and nobody can convince me that he wasn't fully involved. But of course, Obama thinks we're all stupid and will just forget. WRONG!

    Give it some time. I truly believe Holder and his cronies will be held accountable. As for Obama,probably not. I think he knew but he'll likely skate.

    I think the Agent was killed by the person who fired the weapon. Not the weapon itself. If we are going to start convicting people who sell or appropraite weapons for the Mexican Drug Cartels then a whole lot of gun show people in Texas need to be charged as well.

    Why do the pseudo-cons try and equate horrible political episodes from the past to the current occupant of the WhiteHouse? (Cause they can't stand having a _______ in the White House? )

    Watergate? Really?

    I think the solution to the southern border violence is Ron Pauls' suggestion. End the drug war and put the fuckers out of business.
