More Fast, But Not Furious Enough

The Fast and Furious investigation is over, right? All a big paranoid delusion by the Right Wing, right? Hahaha! Those crazy Right Wingers and their theories.

Wrong:

A new report by our partners at Univision has found additional links between violent crimes in Mexico and guns involved in the Obama administration’s flawed “Fast and Furious” operation.

Fifty-seven previously unidentified weapons tied to the operation — allowed to “walk” across the U.S. border into Mexico so ATF agents could trace them – were later found at the sites of murders, kidnappings and at “two gruesome massacres,” Univision’s Gerardo Reyes and Santiago Wills report.

The reporters made the discovery by cross-referencing a list of guns registered with “Fast and Furious” and a Mexican government list of the roughly 60,000 guns recovered at crime scenes in 2009 and 2010.

In July, a congressional investigation into the program reported 122 weapons had been traced to Mexican crime scenes. The Univision report adds 57 weapons to that list.

By the way, there are still 1200 guns unaccounted for. Even if we accept the DOJ’s excuse that this program started under Bush (it didn’t really, but let’s play their game), does the Justice Department bear no responsibility for this? Does the Attorney General bear no responsibility? You know I hate playing the “if Bush did it” game, but … Univision’s report literally shows blood in the streets. Does anyone here think that, had this happened five years ago, we’d be hearing about it from fucking Univision?

This isn’t over. This is only going to get worse and worse.

    How Holder has managed to stay in his position this long is amazing considering the number and nature of his “mistakes”. Somewhere, someone has made some serious deals to keep bodies hidden for that to happen, as he should have been gone and in hiding over a year ago.

    He’s not just incompetent, he’s criminally incompetent – I imagine if his protection dries up he’ll sing like a birdy, which is not something Obama/Jarrett can have happen prior to the election.

    Anyone who authorized this abortion needs serious jail time or death row….

    Holder some how managed to keep the media on his side though a shit storm that would have drowned any other AG. Given how big this program was and the fact that Obama slapped down executive privilege to block any further release of information…. one has to wonder, why….

    I really hope Univison bangs away on this till the end of the election, maybe people of Hispanic heritage will see that the brother in the white house and his AG don’t like wetbacks…

    Another thing, if Romney does not bring up Fans and furious, at the debate, then he has no fucking balls.
    the republicans deserve to loose for playing a weak ass game.

    This is not an issue. Hardly anyone died from these weapons. It’s not like Bush did it, so why do we need to talk about it? There are more important things to be thinking about like how Romney hates the poor, even though he helps them out of his own pocket.

    The Stupid Party never should have signed off on Holder’s nomination to begin with, this story was brought up then as was his Black Power beliefs.

    As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed.”

    The Daily Caller has unearthed a story from Eric Holder’s college days (as well as a snazzy photo):

    As the story relates, Holder bragged about his involvement in the “rise of black consciousness” protests at Columbia.

    Patraeus is out at CIA. If I put on my conspiracy hat I come up with the following:

    Patraeus claims he’s resigning because of an affair. I suspect we will shortly hear “rumors” and “leaks” that it’s really because he is responsible for the Benghazi fiasco. See, it wasn’t Obama’s fault!!!

    In addition, this frees up a spot for the soon-to-be ex-AG. Holder can’t quit the administration knowing what he knows. He also can’t stay in the administration in a position that has accountability. If he can ease over to the CIA he will be all but untouchable. I know he has to be approved and all but in Washington, D.C. nothing is impossible with the right leverage.

    Finally, no matter what, Obama needs a man at CIA willing to finally turn it into the tool the Asshat-in-Chief needs to make sure he gets maximum “revenge” out of the “revenge vote”. Remember, he made sure to direct the FAA to incorporate drones into the national airspace system in a damn hurry. And who has a lot of neat drones…?

    I know, it all sounds really tin-foil-hat-ish but should anything really surprise us at this point? I hope I’m as crazy as I feel right now.

    “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Mr. Petraeus wrote. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the president graciously accepted my resignation.”

    Is it really unacceptable for the leader of the CIA? I would understand if he said that he needed to quit to focus on his personal life, but this?

    It was just pointed out to me that once Patraeus leaves CIA he will not have to appear before Congress next week. In fact, I would suspect he CAN’T appear or ever talk about anything involving CIA for reasons of “national Security”.

    If every player in Washington quit over affairs the place would be a fu**ing ghost town.

    I was waffling about whether or not to post on this. I’ll put up a thread on it if nobody else does by later this evening. Can you guys hang on before getting too in-depth?

    And if the CIA can’t keep something as simple as an affair secret he shouldn’t be head of the CIA anyway. If ANYONE should be able to keep an affair on the down low it would be the head of the CIA, and/or NSA. This is obviously BS.
