Evidence of Coverup in Botched ATF Operation

Just hours after the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, federal officials tried to cover up evidence that the gun that killed Terry was one the government intentionally helped sell to the Mexican cartels in a weapons trafficking program known as Operation Fast and Furious.

The revelation comes just days after a huge shake-up of government officials who oversaw the failed anti-gun trafficking program and Congress renewed its demand for more answers.

Also late Thursday, Sen. Charles Grassley’s office revealed that 21 more Fast and Furious guns have been found at violent crime scenes in Mexico. That is up from 11 the agency admitted just last month

    Oh, how the liberals howled over the Iran-Contra. Oh, how they howled.

    Now, we have to listen to their howling again. With their self-proclaimed consistency, they will soon start.

    You will not see me standing up to defend the cluster fuck this ATF operation has shaken out to be.

    Henry is being sarcastic. This being a liberal president, the liberals will be quiet. Oh for the days of Paul Wellstone, who at least was consistant

      Its no surprise Henry is taking advantage of every specious opportunity he can to attack the liberals, but this isn’t a rep/dem issue.

      This is standard operating procedure far lower down the chain, not national policy set by party as Iran Contra was. This is no different than their selling drugs to trace where they go which we do daily…. well, there is one difference. The drugs we sell go to junkies, and guns we sell go to people who MIGHT murder Americans. Its much harder to feel outrage when a junkie gets our government drugs, but its apples to apples.

      The reality of this is unless we put in extremely restictive gun regulations in this country, Mexico, and other people looking for cheap available weapons are going to buy them here and we have no other options to trace the weapons to the bad guys than to do this.

      THEN who will be howling?!?!?

        LOL, another Ad Hominem attack to discredit a valid point there, Henry? That point was very well made, and just accusing whoever that non registered person of being me doesn’t change the truth.

        A truth you neglected to answer. Under WHOSE watch WERE those guns sold, just because they surfaced during the Obama administration doesn’t make him responsable.

        PSSSSSSS…. I find it funny, The rare times I DO post under an assumed nic, you (as anon) accuse me of being grootch. Now someone who has common sense posts and you accuse them of being ME! Thanks for the compiment… they are rare these days!

        That Vert isn’t very bright, totally missed the real question in my post.

        The only other choice our government has to address illegal gun trade is to make severely limited gun regulations so the weapons are not available. Remember criminals have 2nd ammendment rights also.

        Pick the better of 2 evils, Which is it Henry, to feed them tracable weapons which will kill some Americans, or make gun ownership illegal to legal citizens so they can’t sell them.

        You may call that aimless drivel, but its directly to the point.

      • Intellectual laziness? From *our* conservatives?

        It’s more likely than you think.

    It was a wet dream and they fucked it up.

      Lets not be hasty, shutting the bar down isn’t necessary. I think simply making it a registration to post only site… like an exclusive country club, would keep the riff raff out. At a bare minimum, you can then ban the trolls.

      Grootch – as billy says – if you don’t like it, leave.

  5. red says:

    It is hilarious that the left wing fringe has determined not only with their rhetoric, but with their posts that it is far worse to raffle off a gun (if it for republicans) than to give guns to drug runners who shoot American authorities.

    Good to know that your priorities haven’t changed. Have a fake drink on me, losers.

    • No Brainer says:

      I don’t believe, Red, anybody said, or ment, what you just said. My deleted post definitely didn’t say anything to that point.

      It saddens me our society is obsessed by violence, and glorifies the use of tools of death as entertainment.

      In my post, I did not endorse selling weapons to the bad guys for law enforcement, I asked for solutions. Either make stricter gun control laws so the criminals cannot so easily get them, or trace the weapons which means planting them.

      Personally, and I know its not going to happen, but I believe having stricter consequences for violent gun crimes is part of the best solution. The death penalty with no chance of appeal. This includes those who provide the weapons to the criminals. If we permanently remove these people from society, not only will they not be able to repeat the crime, but the example set will discourage those who sell weapons to criminals from doing so.
