WASHINGTON -- In 2006, when George W. Bush was president, federal law enforcement officials came up with a spectacularly dumb idea: Allow powerful firearms purchased in the United States to "walk" across the Mexico border, where authorities would trace the weapons and eventually nab the big-time criminals who supply guns to the ultra-violent Mexican drug cartels.

Well, now what was once a bipartisan effort to get to the bottom of this mystery, the democrats are once again dividing legal investigation based on partisan politics. I think the left's racial thinking is something along these lines.

Barack Obama is Black
Eric Holder is Black
Mexicans are Hispanic
Bush started the Program, Our coverup of it is not OUR fault!!!! You racist pigs!!!!!!

I mean seriously?! WTF this is the only excuse the left has!

Yes, the GOP wants to target all of these groups again based on their race!!!!
We don't want to find out exactly what happened to Brian Terry.
We don't want to know why Obama used executive order, if he claims he never knew about the incident.
This caused a death of a US Citizen under Obama's watch!!!!
We want Eric Holder gone, and we want Obama impeached due to this despicable incident that is now becoming worse than watergate.


Watch Hannity's interview with Brian Terry's parents and decide for yourself!

Sorry for the !!!!!! I am very upset by this incident.

Holder's not under attack because he's black, no matter how badly some would love to believe.

He's under attack because he's not taking responsibility for the fallout. So what if it wasn't his original operation- he's "the man" now. Therefore the responsibility is his, that's how things work in the fedleo agencies, military, etc. If he didn't want any part of it he should have done his part to shut it down, but he didn't. Now he's backpedaling and covering up.

THAT's why he's under attack.


Obama could have shut it down too, but he didn't. So the responsiblity is now his as well. Nothing to do with skin color.


Mexican drug dealers and murderers are well... Mexican. That's just a fact. If it was opposite day and it was Canadians that were running drugs and the Fast n' Furious let guns go north, would it be "war on whites"? That one's simple geography.


Hurrrrrrrrr

The Fast & Furious scheme was dreamed up and started under Bush Jr., then continued by the Obama admin until Eric Holder decided to stop it. There's enough crow for everyone to eat. Although the Republicans are currently having multiple orgasms because Obama invoked Executive Privilege (and will undoubtedly pardon Eric Holder if he is put on trial for contempt of Congress) only months before the election, they knew well in advance how this would play out and figured it was a very effective way to humiliate Obama.

Ostensibly F&F was a plan to discover all the tentacles and connections and participants in the Mexican drug smuggling system by introducing identifiable weapons to the system and seeing where the weapons went and who handled them. Kinda like giving the Indians blankets from the typhoid infirmary.

Unfortunately, it didn't work. It is possible that success was still a hope until the story hit the newspapers.

The Executive Privilege and the contempt citation come from this: The Republicans demanded, among other things, that the administration (in the person of A-G Holder) turn over many thousands of documents -- the proverbial U-Haul trailer full of documents (and maybe too bulky for just one U-Haul trailer). These documents undoubtedly contain - and the Republicans undoubtedly knew they contain - mentions of ongoing investigations with references to undercover agents, honest and dishonest police and politicians on both sides of the border, sources of information, details that are known or guessed as well as details still unknown or mistaken, methods of investigation (including whose phone is tapped and whose apartment is being spied on), and so forth. Revealing this, or any part of it, could jeopardize ongoing investigations, pending prosecutions, and even peoples' lives. The task of "sanitizing" so many documents before handing them over to the Congressional committee would be enormous and probably require many months of hard work. Probably this is not precisely what Executive Privilege is supposed to cover, but it definitely falls into the exceptions to the Freedom of Information Act. The Republicans knew this and still put Holder through the grinder in order to play to the home audiences in the months before the Election.

The operation that was Watergate resulted in ZERO deaths, and the resignation of a President.

The Fast and Furious operation resulted in thousands of Mexican deaths, but more importantly resulted in the death of an American federal agent.

This is bigger than Watergate, and bigger than Iran-Contra, yet the government controlled media tried to dispel it's seriousness, and only recently decided to report on it.

Not exactly. Under Bush, there was a program called 'Wide Receiver'

Wide Receiver Info


It’s important to note that the Bush administration oversaw something similar to Fast and Furious. Called Operation Wide Receiver, it used the common tactic of “controlled delivery,” whereby agents would allow an illegal transaction to take place, closely follow the movements of the arms, and then descend on the culprits. But Fast and Furious is different because it was “uncontrolled delivery,” whereby the criminals were essentially allowed to drop off the map. Perhaps more importantly, Wide Receiver was conducted with the cooperation of the Mexican government. Fast and Furious was not.



The Executive Privilege and the contempt citation come from this: ...

... the administration covering up an inept and corrupt Holder/Obama team .

Holder has retracted his statement that the Bush administration started all this with a program called Wide Receiver.

You are the only one injecting race into the issue. The idea that you wish to cover up this atrocity by calling people racist is childish and moronic. When in doubt, 'blame bush'.

Wait, did you just say what I think you said? One American federal agent's life is worth more than thousands of Mexican's lives?

Bush ran a program where illegal guns entered Mexico bound for drug cartels. The operation had agents all through the trail even into Mexico. The Obama Administration stopped the program. They wrote new rules that would stop guns from going into Mexico. The new program was still being carried out by the same Agencies in Arizona. The agencies in Arizona decided to use the old tactics of letting the guns go into Mexico even though it had been said stop the guns. The Arizona intelligence community decided to claim secrecy by having Arizona judges seal the documents avoiding having the paper work go up stairs to the White House. The Obama Adminstration then used there Anonymous Luzsec FBI program to hack all the computers in Arizona to find the information being hid from them. Jan Brewer then pointed her finger at Obama over hacking Arizona DPS CIA Sheriff Departments and Terrorism task force. She was let in on the secret stay out of it. Shes shut up ever since. Even McCain has stayed away and does not want the spot light on this topic. Because they know whats going to happen.

Arizona DPS system hacked: LulzSec group claims responsibility
www.azcentral.com...



The hacking group LulzSec, which has taken responsibility for breaching the websites of the CIA and the U.S. Senate, said in a bulletin that it targeted the DPS because LulzSec opposes Senate Bill 1070, a law the Arizona Legislature passed that widened law-enforcement officers' ability to apprehend illegal immigrants. The law is largely on hold pending a review by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The DPS files, posted on LulzSec's website, include personal information about officers and numerous documents ranging from routine alerts from out-of-state police agencies to videos and photos about the hazards of police work and operations of drug gangs. The names of the files are as innocuous as "resume" and "evaluation form" and as provocative as "cartel leader threatens deadly force on U.S. police."

In its Web posting, the group said the files were primarily related to U.S. Border Patrol and counterterrorism operations.

The hackers vowed to release more classified documents each week as a way to embarrass authorities and sabotage their work.


Lulzsec was ran by a FBI informant. Targeted Arizona border patrol, Counter Terrorism and CIA.



Gov. Jan Brewer was briefed on the situation, but her spokesman referred all questions to the DPS.

The amount of ignorance displayed in this post is ASTOUNDING.

It's amazing just how brainwashed people are.

The issue at hand here is NOT race, but rather the failure of Fast & Furious.

Take the blinders off.

Also to let you in on the government secret. The tactics used in the Bush gun running program are what Anonymous was based on. Use fake hackers to do government hacking for the government blame it on unknown hackers for more internet government spying. While the government hackers release usesless data from there hacks to the public while collecting all the data on crimes and keeping it secret for political gain. And while they also do this they also track all the data they do release to follow the trail of that data to create the tree or spider web that leaked material follows when leaked. Learning the players who pass hacked info. And learning the criminal under ground of leaks. The government works like a octopus working several angles at the same time. If you see one slight of hand and think you know whats going on. You still missed the seven others doing something else.

It's ALWAYS race, with this administration.

You don't DARE question any of this president's policies, be it our involvement in Libya, Fast and Furious, health care, green jobs programs...you don't question ANY of it! Because to do so means you are racist!

They are too stupid to realize the race card doesn't stick anymore, but they keep throwing it out there, hoping it does.
