Exposing Falsehoods and Revealing Truths
Here is an article focusing on the fact that emails show Fast and Furious gunwalking program was implemented for the purpose of enacting stronger gun control in USA.
The following article documents as best as we can at this point the emails that show that the ATF intended to USE the F&F program to further gun control legislation. This reminds me of the phrase "create a helpful wave of indignation" that was planned on the part of the Northwoods Documents planners in regard to the plan making it appear that several Americans had been killed and how that could be USED to further the planners' geopolitical goals.
The US House and Senate recently voted to hold Eric Holder in contempt of congress for not cooperating with their Fast & Furious congressional investigation but the Justice Dept put out a statement that they would not prosecute Eric Holder. So that means that whole contempt vote by congress was political theater meant to make each of them look tough here around election time. They knew all along nothing would come of their contempt charge and knew all along the Justice Dept. would formally say they would not prosecute. Now all is silent on Fast & Furious and it is up to we the people to keep this story of Fast & Furious alive. Over two thousand people were killed in Mexico with these guns and three Americans on US soil were killed. This makes Obama, Holder and ATF treasonous mass murderers.
Issa: Gun-Control Agenda Behind Fast and Furious
June 27, 2012
Excerpts from article:
"Issa commented during that speech. “Could it be that what they really were thinking of was in fact to use this walking of guns in order to promote an assault weapons ban? Many think so, and they haven’t come up with an explanation that would cause any of us not to agree.”
Tapper asked, “Do you really think that it was a possibility that they were sending guns across the border — not because they were trying to get people in the Mexican drug cartels, not ’cause they were trying to figure out gun trafficking, but because they were trying to push gun control?”
Issa responded. “First of all, this was so flawed that you can’t believe they expected to actually get criminal prosecutions as a result of it, so the level of flaw — if that’s a word — here is huge. But here’s the real answer as to gun control: We have emails from people involved in this that are talking about using what they’re finding here to support, basically assault weapons ban or greater reporting.”
We do know that during this Fast and Furious Operation there were e-mails in which they’re saying, “We can use this as part of additional reporting or things like assault weapons ban.” So, the people involved saw the benefit of what they were gathering. Whether or not that was the original purpose, we probably will never know.
According to CBS, “ATF [still the initials for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives] officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called ‘Demand Letter 3.’ That would require some US gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or ‘long guns.’ ”
An email from ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait to ATF Phoenix Special Agent Bill Newell, who was in charge of Fast and Furious, showed Chait asking Newell for “anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales” based on sales included in Fast and Furious.
On Jan. 4, 2011, as ATF officials prepared a press conference to announce arrests in Fast and Furious, Newell saw it as “another time to address Multiple Sale on Long Guns issue.”
Following that conference, Chait emailed Newell applauding him for taking advantage of that opportunity:”Bill–well done yesterday… In light of our request for Demand letter 3, this case could be a strong supporting factor if we can determine how many multiple sales of long guns occurred during the course of this case.”
Larry Keane, spokesman for National Shooting Sports Foundation. He maintained that it was “deeply troubling” if sales made by gun dealers “voluntarily cooperating with ATF’s flawed ‘Operation Fast & Furious’ were going to be used by some individuals within ATF to justify imposing a multiple sales reporting requirement for rifles.”
“It’s the only thing that makes any sense,” LaPierre observed of the gunrunning “sting” operation that resulted in thousands of U.S.-purchased firearms ending up in the hands of violent Mexican drug traffickers. LaPierre noted that “over a period of two or three years they were running thousands and thousands of guns to the most evil people on earth,” while government officials were claiming that 90 percent of the guns used by the Mexican cartels were coming from the United States. However, said LaPierre:
That [90 percent] was a phony figure from the very start. Even the Wikileaks cables from our own State Department prove they are coming from Central America; they are not coming from the U.S. Every police officer will tell you that they’re coming from Russia, they’re coming from China, most of them are coming from Central America and a lot of them are coming from defections from the Mexican Army.
We have to read about this stupid report in the London Daily Mail. Wonder if they'll post my comment.
Sort of reads like the 9-11 Commission report. You know, it was all just a "failure of imagination."
missteps, poor judgements and inherently reckless strategy
'the devastating failure of supervision and leadership'
failing to ensure that the agency’s headquarters personnel adequately supervised the Phoenix field division
practicing 'repeatedly risky' management and 'consistently pushed the envelope of permissible investigative techniques'
risky gun-walking tactics
'rubber stamped critical documents that came across his desk without reading them,
not his job to ask any questions
'played a surprisingly passive role during the operation
did not do enough to end Fast and Furious
derelict in his duty to ensure that public safety was not jeopardised
