Fast And Furious: A Scandal Of Epic Proportion

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/29

The breadth and depth of the Obama Administration’s involvement in the wholly corrupt Operation Fast And Furious is of epic proportion. I would venture to say there has been no time in the history of the US that a scandal of this size has ever before been perpetrated, in terms of the number and level of the people involved, in terms of the cover-up involved, and in terms of lives lost.

ATF bought guns, then sold them to illegal buyers. An ATF agent in charge ordered this done, then ordered the illegal buyers not be surveilled, then when the field agent who had disobeyed that corrupt order and surveilled them anyway reported the guns were being moved and requested the ATF take down the illegal buyers and those moving the guns, his supervisor flat-out refused, allowing the guns to just disappear. Then the supervisor got promoted.

An FBI informant was involved in illegally transporting the guns across the border. The FBI also covered up the fact one of the Fast And Furious guns, tied to the FBI, was used in a murder.

The Department of Justice has obstructed the Congressional investigation, ordering its people to not cooperate, deceiving the Congressional investigation, and refusing to release documents related to Fast And Furious.

The White House received emails regarding Fast And Furious as it was in operation.

Over 200 murders are tied to Fast And Furious guns, including civilians, Law Enforcement officials, Government officials, and including people on both sides of the border.

While the New Media has been covering this epic scandal as the epic scandal it is, Mainstream Media has in essence not given much weight to the scandal at all. And some Democrats, at one point, were trying to use the wholly corrupt Operation Fast And Furious in an attempt to take away gun rights.

I have created a chronological list of New Media reports on Fast And Furious that I’ll place below the fold. The list is far from exhaustive, barely scratching the surface. Nor does the list start at the beginning, but it is a decent place to work on some research. Do some research, if you haven’t already, and let your anger at the full-blown corruption grow. Then inform those around you and vote the bums out.

As Foxfier said, Dean at Beers with Demo has been all over this scandal. He is a good resource.

    I’ve got to put in a plug for Beers with Demo, who got there before MM and has been doing an AMAZING job of watching this BS.


  2. I got too lazy to do all the transcribing but, yes, Dean at Beers with Demo has done yeoman’s work. (Also, if I remember my research, his titles were along the lines of “Fast and Furious Update” without heavy information in the titles.)


  3. Foxfier said

    Yep. Clicking on the “ATF” tag gets them, too, but might miss a few.

    I’ve been trying to plug it everywhere, because he’s been so good about updating EVERYTHING.
