Two outstanding posts From Lisa Gilmer of Saucy American in NZ
Holder gave 2009 speech on Gunwalker he now claims he never knew about
While it is still there before the evidence is scrubbed or removed, check out a speech AG Eric Holder gave in April 2009 announcing the start of project Gunwalker, yes, this is also known as "fast and furious" the program Holder lied to congress about when he said in May 2011 (from Issa's letter):
"Your May 3, 2011 Statement
"On May 3, 2011, I asked you directly when you first knew about the operation known as Fast and Furious. You responded directly, and to the point, that you weren’t “sure of the exact date, but [you] probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” This statement, made before Congress, has proven to be patently untrue. Documents released by the Department just last week showed that you received at least seven memos about Fast and Furious starting as early as July 2010. "
From the United States Department of Justice OWN WEB SITE(displayed above), in April 2009 Holder said in his speech "Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail."
HIS OWN WORDS - HOLDER IS A LIAR
dear Holder, we've got the evidence. love, Issa
THIS ISN'T FUNNY to the hundreds of families who have lost loved ones to murder by guns HOLDER'S PEEPS SUPPLIED now is it... ??
Michelle Malkin posted the EXCELLENT letter from Rep. Darryl Issa to USA AG Eric Holder where Mr. Issa basically tells Mr. Holder: we have got the evidence to prove you lied to congress.
NICE! A tidbit:
"These firearms were not interdicted. They were not stopped. Your agents allowed these firearms purchases to continue, sometimes even monitoring them in person, and within days some of these weapons were being recovered in Mexico. Despite widespread knowledge within its senior ranks that this practice was occurring, when asked on numerous occasions about the veracity of this letter, the Department has shockingly continued to stand by its false statement of February 4, 2011.
Mr. Attorney General, you have made numerous statements about Fast and Furious that have eventually been proven to be untrue. Your lack of trustworthiness while speaking about Fast and Furious has called into question your overall credibility as Attorney General. The time for deflecting blame and obstructing our investigation is over. The time has come for you to come clean to the American public about what you knew about Fast and Furious, when you knew it, and who is going to be held accountable for failing to shut down a program that has already had deadly consequences, and will likely cause more casualties for years to come.
Operation Fast and Furious was the Department’s most significant gun trafficking case. It related to two of your major initiatives – destroying the Mexican cartels and reducing gun violence on both sides of the border. On your watch, it went spectacularly wrong. Whether you realize yet or not, you own Fast and Furious. It is your responsibility.
