Read Randy131’s comment at bottom: this was a plan by Obama to turn public opinion against guns by placing guns into criminals hands
The closed-door testimony of ATF’s acting director, saying that the Justice Department was obstructing a congressional investigation, has prompted an expansion of that ongoing probe into the controversial “Fast and Furious” weapons-smuggling operation.
“We’ll go wherever the investigation takes us,” said Sen. Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee and a key inquisitor in probing the operation, during which guns, including AK-47 assault rifles, were “walked” into Mexico.
He said the weekend testimony of Kenneth E. Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, had corroborated information that “more agencies within the Justice Department may have been involved in allowing guns to fall into the hands of known straw purchasers.”
Responses to Holder Accused of Cover-up, ATF Probe Expanding
This whole operation was designed by Obama, in order to get American guns in the hands of the drug cartels, that have been infiltrating our southern border (which Obama refuses to secure) and perpetrating violent crimes with guns in the USA, so that Obama could get public opinion behind him, in order to fulfill his promise he made to Mrs. Brady while she was visiting the White House, that he had something in the works to help her ban weapons sold to all Americans, and the operation was directed by Eric Holder under Obama’s orders. This is the reason that the documents that were subpoenaed by Congress from the Department of Justice (DOJ) that were related to information about the ‘Fast and Furious’ and ‘Gunrunner’ operations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) between the DOJ and BATFE, were so redacted that they were practically completely blackened out. What else would Eric Holder and the Department of Justice be hiding from a Congressional investigation to cause them to have to redact documents, by blackening them almost completely out, other than hiding Obama’s participation, orders, and Obama’s reasoning for giving those orders? The most transparent administration in our history, what a lie, and the liberals just eat it up. I just hope the Independent voters are taking notice to all of Obama’s lies and his audacity to put himself and his cohorts above the laws of the USA. Added to all this is that Obama is destroying the economy and bankrupting the country. At least all this makes Jimmy Carter happy, for he is now not considered the worst President in the history of the USA.
