Obama Continues Lying About Scheme to Murder Mexicans/Bill of Rights


Forget his ears, Barry should have a nose so long that he would have trouble getting through open doors.

“I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” the president said. “When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned a inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable.”

There’s probably some part of this that’s true. Not any of the actual words, but maybe one of the commas might not be completely false.

1. Fast and Furious did not begin under Bush

2. Holder did not discontinue it when he found out about it because he was the one who implemented it

3. Holder did not discontinue it until he had reached the point where he could no longer keep lying about its existence

4. The people responsible, except for two scapegoats, were not held responsible. And being held responsible for causing thousands of deaths, including some American deaths, should involve more than a resignation.

5. The inspector said that he couldn’t do his job because of a White House cover up

The recently released DOJ Inspector General’s report added to Obama’s fairy tale explanation by admitting the White House made it impossible to follow up on leads regarding White House security staffer Kevin O’Reilly, allegedly a key player in Fast and Furious.

So where’s the media’s Fast and Furious Fact Check?

    What doesn't Obama lie about? He's also releasing 55 Gitmo terrorists, 34 of whom are deemed "high risk." And that terrorist Omar Khadr is now back in Canada. Given our lunatic Leftist courts and judges, he'll be out on the streets within weeks ( and his lawyers will be suing so as to make yet another Islamist a multi-millionaire).

    `I learned after going through a couple of murder trials to keep notes on info presented as facts and if it's internet info cut and paste to notepad any facts.I started collecting F&F info when the questions started.

    In the Bush operation known as Wide Receiver which began in early 2006, several hundred guns were allowed to “walk” across the border. But using “controlled delivery,” as well as miniature GPS devices within the guns, agents tracked the weapons. The Mexican government was kept informed of the program, and Mexican police there took over the surveillance once the guns crossed the border.officials aborted the operation in late 2007 When agents “lost” guns through malfunctioning GPS devices and tampering .

    Jan. 2009,Eight days before Obama’s inauguration,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.

    Feb. 25, 2009, Napolitano;“I’ve met with the attorney general of Mexico and the ambassador already,” “One of the things that I particularly am focused on is southbound traffic in guns, particularly assault weapons, and cash that are being used to funnel and fund these very, very violent cartels.”
    Burke moves from the Obama transition team to become Napolitano’s senior adviser.

    March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced to reporters on a trip to Mexico: “Since we know that the vast majority, 90% of that weaponry (used by Mexican drug cartels), comes from our country, we are going to try to stop it from getting there in the first place.”
    “The guns sold in the United States, which are illegal in Mexico, get smuggled and shipped across our border and arm these terrible drug-dealing criminals so that they can outgun these poor police officers along the border and elsewhere in Mexico”

    April 16, 2009 — four months before Fast and Furious began President Barack Obama While visiting Mexico said, “This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States … more than 90% of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border.”

    Congress gave the ATF $21 million in 2009, including $10 million in stimulus funds, and a year later the ATF was given $37 million more to expand Project Gunrunner.

    November 2009 , The ATF Phoenix Field Division applied to Justice Department headquarters to become an “Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force” (OCDETF) case. In preparing their application the ATF in Phoenix wrote a memo explaining the investigative technique of Fast and Furious.
    The application for Fast and Furious was approved in January 2010.

    July 2010,Burke joined Holder’s advisory committee with a responsibility to report to Deputy Attorney General David Ogden on border and immigration enforcement, Ogden’s office made a significant change in the federal government’s strategy for dealing with gun-trafficking on the Mexican border.
    “This new strategy directed federal law enforcement to shift its focus away from seizing firearms from criminals as soon as possible, and to focus instead on identifying members of trafficking networks,” Burke told the Arizona Capitol Times that he had “been working on homeland security and border enforcement issues” during the transition, and that there had “clearly been direction provided already by President Obama and Attorney General Holder as to what they want to be doing.”

    The “Project Gunrunner” case is now pointing towards possible ATF sales of weapons bound for Honduras, including a reported 1,000 guns to members of the ruthless MS-13 gang. The program may be a spinoff or in some way related to “Operation Castaway,“ and in reports it sounds remarkably similar to ”Operation Fast and Furious.”

    ICE formally launched Operation Armas Cruzadas to combat transnational criminal networks smuggling weapons into Mexico from the United States. A DHS memorandum reveals that ICE ran Operation Armas Cruzadas with the full knowledge of Arturo Chávez Chávez,Mexican Attorney General in an effort to prosecute cartels in Mexico using U.S. intelligence and agents.
