Hannity spelled it all out last night.

GunrunnerGate/Fast & Furious is for real.

It turns out there was a strategy to " smear " the gun dealers.
Make them look bad and make the NRA look bad.

It all went wrong. Now the gun dealers look like heros. They blew the whistle on the guns just
walking across the border. Federal agents are backing them up.

Now Eric Holder and Obama have blood all over their hands and they are running for cover.

White House official Eric Schultz cursed at CBS reporter Sharyl Atkisson.
He said he cursed at her because the other liberal reporters are not asking
questions about the DOJ .

Congress needs to bring in Eric Schultz and put him under oath.

I a last-ditch effort to divert attention away from himself, Holder tried to portray Congress' investigation as an attack on the field officers instead of the WH and DoJ leadership:

“I simply cannot sit idly by as … of the House Committee … suggests, as happened this week, that law enforcement and government employees who devote their lives to protecting our citizens be considered ‘accessories to murder,’” Holder wrote.

What Gosar was referring to is that Obama administration political appointees, not law enforcement officers, responsible for Fast and Furious would be accessories to murder.


He triewd to make it seem that the briefings were just cursory references, without details.

Turns out that's wrong, too.

In the letter, Holder also suggests … that the weekly briefing reports … did not contain details of how Fast and Furious allowed guns to walk into Mexico.

That’s despite a detailed description at least five of those memos contain.

“This investigation, initiated in September 2009 … involved a Phoenix-based firearms trafficking ring headed by Manuel Celis-Acosta,” each of the briefings addressed to Holder state. “Celis-Acosta and straw purchasers are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to Mexican drug trafficking cartels.

That last sentence appears to describe how weapons were allowed to walk into Mexico.


I think the noose is slowly tightening, and he feels it.

Watch for new memos to leak that show DoJ sending summaries and details to the White House.
Holder's last, best, try will be to move the focus up, rather than down, the chain of command; let the White House idiots take the heat for a change.

Now that Holder and the White House staff have tried their best to divert attention away from their roles and cover-up efforts, CNN's John King digs up an interview Barack Obama gave in March to CNN En Espanol where he discusses Fast and Furios, gun-running and Holder's investigation of the matter!

This was, of course, more than a month before Holder told Congress in May that he'd just learned about F&F "a few weeks ago."

How could he have had an on-going investigation in March, according to his boss, but just learned of the operation a few weeks before his testimony?

"John King USA"

Listen to this interview the president of the United States, not the attorney general, the president of the United States, had with CNN Espanol back in March.

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: There have been problems, you know. I heard on the news about this story that -- Fast and Furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico, and ATF knew about it, but didn't apprehend those who had sent it.

Eric Holder has -- the attorney general has been very clear that he knew nothing about this. We had assigned an I.G., inspector general, to investigate it. (END VIDEO CLIP)

KING: It begs the question, how did the president know about this in March, and how did the president know the attorney general knew nothing about this in march, when the attorney general says in May he just learned about it a couple weeks ago?

Obama Spoke About "Fast & Furious" Before Holder Claimed He Knew

Apparently, there is much more to the story about who knew what when than we've been told thus far.
