Over 200 people
are confirmed dead, including at least one US agent, with Fast
and Furious weapons which were directed into the hands of
drug cartels in Mexico at the order of our Justice Department and
Attorney General Holder denied any knowledge of the operation or
active participation in it and continues to deny his involvement
to this day:
testimony was truthful and accurate and I have been consistent
on this point throughout. I have no recollection of knowing
about Fast and Furious or of hearing its name prior to the
public controversy about it.
lashed out at some of the more extreme charges being leveled by
Republican lawmakers, such as a statement this week by Rep. Paul
Gosar (R-Ariz.) that federal officials who approved the gun-walking
technique should be charged as accessories to murder.
line is that this is Eric Holders Justice Department, and
he is doing everything he can to distance himself from an operation
which he, as head of the department, oversaw.
While Mr. Holder
maintains his innocence regarding the perjury charges being thrown
at him by Republicans, there is perhaps a more serious charge that
he should face, as suggested by Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu and others:
[the ATF have been accomplices to murder]. Not just these individual
agents, but people up the chain of command who have made the decisions.
The US Attorney for Arizona just resigned. This is a big deal.
Now its one step away from Eric Holder. This is his Department
of Justice. There are people who have lost their lives.
At the very
least Mr. Holder should be immediately investigated for perjury
and should resign his position as Attorney General of the United
States because he was either complicit in the execution of the operation
or ignorant to what was going on within his own agency, which shows
clear incompetence on his part. Whats equally as alarming
is that Mr. Holders boss, President Obama, has taken no action
regarding this situation and has remained eerily quiet. Perhaps
he, like his law enforcer, was involved in some capacity. Again,
at the very least he should be forcing a resignation at this point.
under the watchful eye of the Eric Holder Justice Department, have
been sent to prison for life for much less serious crimes.
talking about here are the deaths of at least 200 people, and countless
unnamed others, and Eric Holder, our top lawman, has his hands all
over it. Where we come from this is usually called being an
accessory or accomplice, though in Washington
it seems to be business as usual.
This is just
the latest example of the modern American system of justice, where
the average Joe is arrested for crimes
like selling lemonade or imprisoned for life
for possession of marijuana, while the well-connected live within
a completely different world where lawlessness runs rampant, the
deaths of innocents are not investigated, trillions of dollars in
fraud are ignored, and the Constitution is treated like an outdated
policy rather than the fundamental law of the land.
Papa Slavo always used to say: If you want to stop crime in
America, start in the White House and work your way down.
