Obama’s Fast & Furious

                                                   Obama’s Fast and Furious
 
On Wednesday June 21, 2012, President Obama invoked Executive Privilege to withhold documents requested by a congressional oversight committee from Attorney General Eric Holder into an investigation of a government operation known as “Fast and Furious”, which the government secretly sold 2,000-3,000 weapons to Mexican drug cartels resulting in the murder of a hundred Mexican citizens and two U.S. Border agents.  At first, Obama denied knowledge of the operation, which causes suspicion of the reason to invoke an order to block the review of these documents as well as the real intentions of “Fast and Furious” operation.
 
Many have now speculated that Obama and Holder worked together to secretly provide the Mexican drug cartel the weapons in order to establish credibility of evidence in the international community where American weapons would be discovered at the crime scene in an effort to gain international support to eliminate and control our constitutional rights to bear arms.  Both Obama and Holder have publicly supported control and limitations of firearms and sited international law above constitutional authority on other issues.
 
The cover up unfolded after the U.S. agents were killed by the same weapons sold to the drug cartel.  Now, further questions have risen questioning why President Obama would invoke Executive Privilege on documents he claimed he knew nothing about.  The American people, the families of the murdered U.S. agents, and families of the Mexican citizens murdered deserve answers.  Are Obama and Holder misguiding the American people and being deceptive about the information being requested by congress?  What was the real reason behind “Fast and Furious”?  Why is there a cover up and refusal to hand over documents if there was nothing to hide?  Obama and Holder are obligated to hand over those documents to the congressional oversight committee.  So much for transparency.

  1. Great post Frank and totally agree with you that it was about gun control and planned by BHO and Holder. The parents and we the people deserve the TRUTH. Brian Terry was murdered and his parents lost a son. There will be no more tomorrows for agent Brian Terry. There is a web site for him it is honorbrian.com I went there and read about this patriot. If you have time go and read about Brian Terry.

  2. A sad day for this Country, when the Democrats walked out today without voting, What a disgrace. Its about this family not about Holder/Obama.

    Please America wake and do the right thing in November because its the right thing to do for Brian and the family. God Bless!

  3. I have been watching all of this fast and furious stuff unfold over the past year and I am so disgusted and nauseated with obama and holder and now all of the democrates walking out, what a disgrace to not only the American people but to the families that have lost their loved ones. I grew up in Arizona on the border with Mexico and my Dad was a Border Patrol Agent in charge of his sector. (I remember what it was like when my Dad went to work). I am so heart broken for these families. I am PRAYING for our country but esecially for those lost! GOD BLESS US AND GOD BLESS AMERICA Thanks, RAYDELL
