Isn't it amazing how if you simply take a look back in history you can find the answers you have been searching for? The Department of Justice, Obama Administration, and congress refuse to answer to the American people. They refuse to admit WHO was behind Operation Fast and Furious, and refuse to hold anyone accountable for the illegal unethical actions of this administration. It is time to call a spade a spade. President Obama was the one that ordered Operation Fast and Furious which was admitted openly on March 24, 2009 in a White House press conference.
Yes, we all know the politicians think we have a five minute memory. In their eyes we are to "ignorant" to find the truth. There is no doubt in my mind politicians hate the internet with a passion for many reasons. Independent investigative bloggers, journalists, educators, and mostly the public's ability to find their corrupt history in video format. Where these politicians are proven to be liars, schemers, and simply shown to be behind the very "corruption" they deny having anything to do with years later. Is it no wonder that this administration is doing everything within it's power to shut down the "bloggers, independent journalists, and internet radio shows" that speak the truth?
Amazingly on March 24,2009 in a speech from the White House covered by C-SPAN2 this administration was all too proud to announce to the American public they were continuing "Operation Gun Runner" an operation started under President Bush. Many like to say that Fast and Furious was simply "Operation Gun Runner" continued. But is that truly the case? Let's take a look. Once you read the difference it is up to you to decide if you think they were the same "Operation".
According to The US Embassy Operation Gun Runner was a much different type of operation. They not only tracked the guns, they arrested individuals and charged them with crimes. Their goal was to keep the guns out of the hands of the drug cartels. While Operation Fast and Furious placed the guns into the hands of the Senola Drug Cartel, the guns were not traced, and they were allowed to freely run drugs and guns here in America with no threat of being arrested for their many crimes including murder. But I will let you decide.
ATF is deploying its resources strategically on the Southwest Border to deny firearms (emphasis mine), the “tools of the trade,” to criminal organizations in Mexico and along the border, and to combat firearms-related violence affecting communities on both sides of the border. In partnership with other U.S. agencies and with the Government of Mexico, ATF refined its Southwest Border strategy. ATF developed Project Gunrunner to stem the flow of firearms into Mexico and thereby deprive the narcotics cartels of weapons (emphasis mine). The initiative seeks to focus ATF’s investigative, intelligence and training resources to suppress the firearms trafficking to Mexico and stem the firearms-related violence on both sides of the border.
Firearms tracing (emphasis mine), in particular the expansion of the eTrace firearms tracing system, is a critical component of Project Gunrunner in Mexico. ATF recently deployed eTrace technology in U.S. consulates in Monterrey, Hermosillo and Guadalajara, with six additional deployments to the remaining U.S. consulates in Mexico scheduled by March 2008. ATF has conducted discussions with the government of Mexico regarding the decentralization of the firearms tracing process to deploy Spanish-language eTrace to other Mexico agencies.
In the past two years, ATF has seized thousands of firearms headed to Mexico. Trends indicate the firearms illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border are becoming more powerful. ATF has analyzed firearms seizures in Mexico from FY 2005-07 and identified the following weapons most commonly used by drug traffickers:
· 9mm pistols;
· .38 Super pistols;
· 5.7mm pistols;
· .45-caliber pistols;
· AR-15 type rifles; and
· AK-47 type rifles.

Most of the firearms violence in Mexico is perpetrated by drug trafficking organizations (DTOs) who are vying for control of drug trafficking routes to the United States and engaging in turf battles for disputed distribution territories. Hundreds of Mexican citizens and law enforcement personnel have become casualties of the firearms-related violence. DTOs operating in Mexico rely on firearms suppliers to enforce and maintain their illicit narcotics operations. Intelligence indicates these criminal organizations have tasked their money laundering, distribution and transportation infrastructures reaching into the United States to acquire firearms and ammunition. These Mexican DTO infrastructures have become the leading gun trafficking organizations operating in the southwest U.S.
ATF has dedicated approximately 100 special agents and 25 industry operations investigators to the SWB initiative over the past two years. ATF has recently assigned special agents to Las Cruces, N.M., and Yuma, Ariz. These assignments are part of a broad plan to increase the strategic coverage and disrupt the firearms trafficking corridors operating along the border.
Cases referred for prosecution under Project Gunrunner.
FY 2006 Cases w/Defendants – 122 Defendants referred for prosecution- 306
FY 2007 Cases w/Defendants – 187 Defendants referred for prosecution- 465 (emphasis mine)
Special agents have been deployed to Monterrey to support the work of the attachés in the ATF Mexico Office and assist Mexican authorities in their fight against firearms related violence. Three additional ATF intelligence research specialists and one investigative analyst are planned for the El Paso Intelligence Center (EPIC) to support Project Gunrunner, along with one intelligence research specialist in each of the four field divisions on the southwest border (Phoenix, Dallas, Houston and Los Angeles).
Firearm tracing intelligence is critical because it allows ATF and its partners to identify trafficking corridors, patterns and schemes as well as traffickers and their accomplices. Firearms tracing helps identify firearms straw purchasers, the traffickers, trafficking networks and patterns, thus allowing law enforcement to target and dismantle the infrastructure supplying firearms to the DTOs in Mexico.
ATF conducts firearms seminars with federal firearms licensees, commonly referred to as licensed gun dealers, to educate the firearms industry on straw purchasers and gun trafficking. More than 3,700 industry members attended outreach events in SWB divisions in FY 2007.
Forbes had this to report.
An investigation by a major Mexican newspaper, El Universal, has concluded that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency entered into agreements—dating back to 2000 and continuing through 2012—with Mexico’s largest drug trafficking gang, the Sinaloa Cartel.
According to Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, a highly placed member of the Sinaloa cartel and the son of top Sinaloa leader Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, the deal involved the cartel providing information about rival Mexican drug gangs to the DEA in exchange for the U.S. government agreeing not to interfere with Sinaloa shipments into the United States and the dismissal of criminal charges against cartel participants.
In a series of court fillings in a criminal case against Zambada-Niebla filed in the federal court in Chicago, it is alleged that the U.S. efforts were part of a strategy previously employed by the U.S. government in combatting Colombian drug cartels whereby the government would “divide and conquer” by making sweetheart deals with one cartel in order to gain information to be used in destroying the cooperating cartel’s rivals.
White House proudly announces that President Obama ordered the "continuation" of "Operation Gun Runner".
A special thank you to Youtuber "Golemsbar" for making sure this video is still available to the public.
While Congress plays the "dog and pony show" pretending they can't get answers, or they don't know "who" is behind Operation Fast and Furious. The fact is they are making the American people believe that they are actually trying to get to the bottom of Fast and Furious when surely they should already know. Giving the benefit of the doubt to Congressman Issa and others involved in this "investigation" that they truly may not know.
Might I make a suggestion to congressmen/women involved in these investigations? Try researching the internet, do your own investigations, and quit depending on the Department of Justice that is simply a lapdog for this corrupt administration. For that matter stop begging for answers and proof from any of the supposed "intelligence" organizations. These organizations have proven for years they are faithful only to their "king" and NOT to this country. A simple two hour internet search would give you more proof and information than you have obtained in years.
Chairman Darrell Issa questions Eric Holder "Who is responsible for Fast and Furious"?
Rep. Gohmert grills Eric Holder about "not knowing who ordered" Operation Fast and Furious.
Rep. Trey Gowdy grills Eric Holder on "gun walking".
There is no doubt in my mind that taxpayers would get their answers much sooner with a dedicated internet search. It certainly would cost much less for our congressmen/women to start digging on the internet themselves, instead of waiting for the proof to fall into their lap. I would suggest they start with C-SPAN2 as well as YouTube. The proof is out there. Question is do they want it bad enough? At least that's my opinion.
What do you think? Do you think congressional investigators should continue to wait on documents they know will not come from individuals that are involved in the cover up? Or do you think they should start doing some investigating of their own?
