What kind of political brain games is our Government playing with us again concerning the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation? Why didn’t the House of Representatives remove Eric Holder from office immediately? Why didn’t Darrell Issa and Chuck Grassley protect Americans by insisting that Holder be removed from office? What’s the hold up or is the question who is holding up this investigation?
Darrell Issa says he wants Eric Holder to admit that he knew about the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation and to that I say, “How many criminals do you know that raise their hand and admit to the truth?” Furthermore Mr. Issa, the House of Representatives and the Senate have everything at your fingertips to remove this person from office – look no further than the DOJ website for they have all the missing pieces well documented.
The DOJ website verifies the fact that Obama funded 10,000,000 to the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation. It also has Holder’s speech when he bragged to the Mexican authorities about enlarging the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation. Holder’s speech in Cuernavaca, Mexico to Mexican authorities is published verbatim on the DOJ website.
Holder’s Speech 4/2009: http://www.justice.gov/ag/speeches/2009/ag-speech-090402.html
In this speech Holder verified that ATF, DEA, FBI, and DHS were all participating in the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation. Holder refers to the operation as a major new effort – this is a crucial piece of information. Janet Napolitano accompanied Holder on his trip to Mexico and Holder had her fill in the intricate details to the Mexican authorities.
Like Holder, Napolitano is playing a cat and mouse game with Darrell Issa and Chuck Grassley. She said the first she’d heard about Fast and Furious was after the murder of Brian Terry. No way to sugar coat this – Napolitano lied under oath.
Although, it’s been proven that Holder has lied under oath, that doesn’t seem to expedite Issa’s investigation; in fact it just delays proceedings. We’re actually witnessing those who are involved with this illegal operation getting one after another “get out of jail” free card.
Adding insult to injury, Holder started playing musical chairs when the whistle blowers stepped forward and disclosed that high powered weapons were being walked across our border into Mexico. He immediately removed Kenneth Melson (Acting Director of the ATF) replacing him with Jones.
Those who were privy to information that would put Holder behind bars were moved to DC and given cushy jobs and very likely money was passed under the table to zip their lips. The whistle blowers got the raw end of the deal and were treated like junk yard dogs and hung out to dry.
The murders of our Border agents and hundreds of Mexican men, women and children occurred on his watch. Holder treats this gunrunner operation that went awry as a “goof” or snafu. This is a man who knowingly allowed high powered weapons to walk across our border and this is the man who didn’t have enough respect to contact Brian Terry’s family immediately after their son was murdered by one of the walking weapons.
Shame on us for allowing Eric Holder to remain in office this long – he is in charge and the gate keeper of the largest law office in the United States and is the steward monitoring the enforcement of federal laws. What more do we need to know?
He was head of the Fast and Furious gunrunner operation April of 2009. He choreographed the growth of the operation. He lied under oath repeatedly about Fast and Furious and has done all in his power to delay Issa’s investigation. Time for Holder to go – in fact it’s past time.
May God Bless America
