DOJ and ATF Botch Mexican Firearm Plot

Original post made by Shock and Shame on Sep 5, 2011

It's hard to believe Dept of Justice and Bureau of Alcohol,Tobacco, and Firearms could be so inept and plot that never should have been tried. Obviously, American lives were wasted.
Read all about it. Go to www.sfchronicle.com for the ongoing story.
At the Chron SFgate site, type in "Fast and Furious", and up pop the ongoing saga as it is investigated. DOJ boss, Atty General Eric Holder is being questioned in a Senate Hearing, to explain suicidal plot where American lives were lost. In the "Fast and Furious" section must read Aug 7 article, Aug 29 & 31 articles, and Sept 1 article. These articles are wilder than any bloody movie. Read.
Senate hearings will resume after Labor Day.

Catch up reading on the hearings to date, the whistleblower, and the explainations for reassignments, retirements, etc. up the chain in DOJ and ATF,

The program was named 'Fast and Furious' after the VinDiesel movie, except real life plots don't have a happy ending.
Google shows 112 LATimes articles, and that the White House has received emails on the plat and knew of the smuggler and gun-trafficing plot.

Hmmmmm. Barack Obama and Eric Holder are both black, aren't they? Somehow this must be central to Shock and Shame's need to trot out this story that has been written about extensively in the mainstream press. Just another way of channelling one's hatred, I guess.

Your comments say more about your mentality with such a petty racist comment. I was thinking of all the bloodshed at our border, and the needless death of Americans on such a giant, poorly executed plot....plus the officials denying with heads hung low, and for punishing the whistleblower. So take your hatred and misplaced attacks elsewhere.
You are living in denial of facts.

There are 6 articles on liberal Chronicle site, 122 articles on liberal LA Times site, and Google is full of references. Hearings have been on neutral C-Span. So Carly, nobody needs to bother 'believing' me.... what is your point??..that stupid and blind live in ignorance by not reading or watching any news sources? . . . . any other comments ?

SS - Why are you bothering to post this story if it has been plastered all over the news already? Some ulterior motive? Thought so, you blue-eyed patriot you.

Blue eyes or brown... What kind of sick hate would make such an irrelevant comment?? I post because as an American, I do not like a plan that provides guns to drug cartels in Mexico, and the slaughter on OUR border ! ! I find that of more importance than some of the drivvle I've seen here.I'm sure most Americans who know of this are also concerned, but if it doesn't concern you, don't invest you time commenting.

A cartoon by Nate Beller was reprinted in the Valley Times titled
"Operation Fast and Furious II" the sequel, showing a pile of
firearms 'ATF GUNWALKER SCANDAL' and Eric Holder building a brick
wall to separate himself from the gun....shouting "HURRY UP WITH SOME MORE *@#* BRICKS !!! Actually, it is tragic!
I believe Holder and Geithner are the only two left in all the cabinet and inner circle appointments of Obama....a very long list has left.

I too like all cartoons that ridicule our black leaders. It makes me feel racially superior to all those uppiddy black folkes who think they are equal to the people who really belong here.

Early Bird / Piggy, you're not suppose to switch names on the same thread. Pure politics for you. You can't do 'deep' intellectual reasoning, so your union just gives you simple talking points...i.e. Don't attempt ISSUE discussion, you'll lose. SO just hammer over and over, it must all be about race !
Well, just follow the news..it's pretty GRIM news that only gets worse, and try as you do, THAT has NOTHING to do with RACE !!
We all know both Obama and Atty Gen Eric Holder are black, but you can't make taking guns across the border to drug cartels about race,....give it a rest!!

"We all know both Obama and Atty Gen Eric Holder are black"

Yes, and thanks so much for reminding us about those uppiddy black people trying to run my country into the ground. You mention GRIM. Wasn't the Grim Reeper black too? Its just getting worse and worse. Somehow I think the union is behind it. Don't the Teamsters make guns for Mexico? There it is! Now we have the deep intellectual connexion.
