In my mind there is no difference between the two. They are truly vile. Neither party truly serves the people. Look at our debt. It’s out of control and the politicians are no where close to being in a place where they both recognize the urgency of the situation. Congress has abdicated almost all of it’s responsibilities to the president. The Attorney general now involved in a massive gun walking scandal brazenly hides key documents from the House committees. Even though the republicans hold a majority in that body they still are unable to get Mr. Holder to do anything that would reveal how this all came to be.
People are dead behind this, both civilians and people in the borer patrol. They were killed with the weapons supplied by the ATF. This has been covered up and it is still being covered up today. This is so much worse than Watergate. No one died there. It was a break in and that was covered up. People are so partisan now that they don’t care anymore what the president does. He can have a Kill list of Americans and it isn’t a problem? He can start new wars with out a declaration of war and have black budgets for things that are immoral and unjust.
If you make these points in public it seems partisan but I don’t see how this issue doesn’t eclipse politics. There is every indication that this was done as a way to make it look like all of the illegal guns in Mexico were coming from gun shops in our conunty. That is far from the truth and this was a misguided and deadly decision taken by the Obama administration and the department of Justice. That name is quickly becoming an oxymoron.
Attorney General Eric Holder claimed during congressional testimony today that internal Justice Department emails that use the phrase “Fast and Furious” do not refer to the controversial gun-walking operation Fast and Furious.
Under questioning from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), who read excerpts of the emails at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Justice Department oversight, Holder claimed that the phrase “Fast and Furious” did not refer to Fast and Furious but instead referred to another gun-walking operation known as “Wide Receiver.
The date-challenged, question-misunderstanding, e-mail non-reader Holder had the following exchange with Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT):
“You claim with passion that nobody at the senior levels at the Department of Justice prior to the death of [border patrol] agent Brian Terry knew that guns were walking, and I’ve got an email from Jason Weinstein using the term ‘guns walking,’” Chaffetz said.
Holder ducked the question, saying that the email referred to a different operation.
“That refers to Wide Receiver, not Fast and Furious,” balked Holder.
Chaffetz fired back “That is not what the February 4 letter that was sent to the United States Congress said. that’s not true.”
Holder stood his ground, compelling Chaffetz to read every email verbatim to the committee.
“The email says Fast and Furious, you say it doesn’t. I’ve got it in black and white,” Chaffetz said.
“I have superior knowledge,” answered Holder.
Once again, Holder seems to be avoiding honesty. Here’s what the e-mail in question actually says:
“It’s not clear how much we’re involved in the main F and F [Fast and Furious] case,” reads the email, “but we have Tucson [Wide Receiver] and now a new unrelated case with [redacted] targets. It’s not any big surprise that a bunch of US guns are being used in MX [Mexico], so I’m not sure how much grief we get for ‘guns walking.’ It may be more like ‘Finally, they’re going after people who sent guns down there.’”
Clearly, the e-mail refers to BOTH Fast And Furious and Wide Receiver, and it also references a “bunch of US guns” in Mexico, as was the case with Fast And Furious.
So now we have Holder’s latest excuse – Fast And Furious doesn’t mean Fast And Furious. No wonder Issa is ready to blow his top, and Congress is considering a contempt citation against Eric Holder.
