Deaths and Coverups in the Obama Administration:

FAST and FURIOUS:

New information is revealed by CBS News indicating that Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath with regards to his knowledge of the BATFE operation called "Fast and Furious." From The Weekly Standard:

CBS News Reporter Says White House Screamed, Swore at Her Over 'Fast and Furious'

12:55 PM, Oct 4, 2011 • By MARK HEMINGWAY

The Fast and Furious scandal, in which the Justice Department knowingly gave Mexican criminal gangs thousands of guns, just keeps escalating. The latest development centers around whether or not Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about having knowledge of the controversial gun trafficking operation. Recently released documents say Holder was briefed about the operation long before he told the Judiciary Committee he was first aware of what was going on. (Holder now claims he misunderstood the question was being asked.)

What's more, CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson -- who's been covering the scandal from the beginning -- says in an interview on the Laura Ingraham Show today that the White House and Justice Department have taken to screaming at her for reporting on the story. You can listen to the full interview below, but here are the key excerpts from Attkisson:

In between the yelling that I received from Justice Department yesterday, the spokeswoman--who would not put anything in writing, I was asking for her explanation so there would be clarity and no confusion later over what had been said, she wouldn't put anything in writing--so we talked on the phone and she said things such as the question Holder answered was different than the one he asked. But he phrased it, he said very explicitly, 'I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.'

Ingraham: So they were literally screaming at you?
Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me. [Laura: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?] Eric Schultz. Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And the person who screamed at me was Eric Schultz at the White House."

Finally, Attkisson notes that the White House is claiming that a thorough investigation of the scandal is unwarranted:

[The White House and Justice Department] will tell you that I'm the only reporter--as they told me--that is not reasonable. They say the Washington Post is reasonable, the LA Times is reasonable, the New York Times is reasonable, I'm the only one who thinks this is a story, and they think I'm unfair and biased by pursuing it.

So CBS News journalist Sharyl Attkisson begins to ask questions and investigates possible links between AG Eric Holder and operation Fast & Furious, posing the obvious query: what did Holder know, and when did he know it?

Read the July 5th, 2010 memo involving AG Holder here.

Read the "tricky case" e-mail involving AG Holder here.

Read the memo to AG Holder from Assistant AG Lanny Breuer here.

Here's what Attorney General Eric Holder said last May, under oath:



The scandal as originally exposed and covered by CBS's Sharyl Attkisson is here.

However, more pointedly:

ATF Fast and Furious: New documents show Attorney General Eric Holder was briefed in July 2010

By Sharyl Attkisson

WASHINGTON - New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.

On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing, "I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks."

Yet internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing Fast and Furious.

I submit:
  • Eric Holder is a liar;
  • Barack Hussein Obama is a liar
  • The bulk of his administration is predicated upon shadows, lies and death
And the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry?


Our administration tries to shunt his death -- by guns purposely untracked by BATFE -- completely aside.

My friend, Texas Fred, has kept track of this thread through the year. Check his website for past archives.

Mr Obama operates in the clear, transparently, with ethics in mind? Absolutely not. He is nothing more than a Socialist Outlaw:

This anger toward the CBS reporter isn't legal proof of the administration's involvement in Fast and Furious, but it IS apparent guilt.

Meanwhile, THIS is what the so-called news media are reporting?

The Obama debacle is imploding, from the top down...

This coming year will be interesting, and VERY dangerous... Obama and his cohorts are evil, but they are not fools, not completely anyway, and they know that the JIG is up... Pun intended...

But, in all seriousness, that jig being up makes Obama and company even more dangerous; think cornered animal...

Fast and Furious, Solyndra, The New Black Panther Party, Bill Ayers, ObamaCare, the 111th Congress, and it goes on and on...this is the worst "president" ever.

New Camelot is crumbling, and I believe only the blinded faithful will continue to look the other way. Even now the liberal State-run media is beginning to question their Messiah.

I have popcorn and beer if anyone is interested in watching it all happen.

AOW: it isn't about the anger per se, but it's interesting how the CBS reporter finds the proof then herself becomes persona non gratis by the Obaka Admin for DARING to make a news story out of the issue.

TF, imploding indeed. It couldn't happen fast enough and to a nicer set of people.

ecc102: first, thanks for visiting and thanks for taking the time to comment; please come back! New Camelot is crumbling INDEED!

What kinda beer?

BZ,

My friend, you name the beer you want and I'll buy a case.

I agree with Texas Fred, in that since New Camelot is having the curtain pulled back, he Obama Regime and its accolytes are more dangerous now than ever.

My prediction: In 2012, Obama will be out, someone else will take his place for two terms, and then all hell will break loose. We all know how tolerant and understanding liberals are. Come 2020, they will be foaming at the mouth.

If this story was any more delicious, I would spread it on a bagel and chow it down at breakfast.

This "Fast and Furious" debacle is screaming for the President's blood, and the blood of the DOJ.

Again, how utterly delicious.

The deaths of innocents will soon be avenged, and no amount of spin can stop it.
