UPDATEx2: Family Of Murdered Border Agent Speak

And lashes out at those responsible – AG Eric Holder, Lanny Breuer, Dennis Burke, and the rest of the ATF officials who approved, executed and supervised Operation Fast and Furious.

Video at HotAirPundit.

UPDATE: And more.

“If they never let the guns walk, maybe Brian would not have been out that day,” Josephine said. “I just can’t believe our own government came up with a program like this that (let) innocent people get killed.”

Dumb And Dumber Gun Laws

Here it is, folks.

Democratic lawmakers have begun to say the DOJ’s lethal and irresponsible Fast and Furious program underscores the need for stricter gun control laws.

Hot Air hilights the idiots. They are Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), and Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y).

Here’s the article from The Hill that spills the beans.

As for AG Eric Holder claiming he didn’t know about guns walking, I call BS.
And here is a very good question. Video at the link.

Disclosing Nondisclosure

The truth is, there will be a new rule giving the DOJ the right to lie.

The proposed rule directs federal law enforcement agencies, after personnel have determined that documents are too delicate to be released, to respond to Freedom of Information Act requests “as if the excluded records did not exist.” …

So, our elected officials now want even lower approval ratings than they have right now.
(Isn’t Congress in single digits? How about WH & DOJ, especially on Fast & Furious and other likely scandals?)

There’s more in the Hot Air article.

Number 6

From Infowars.com:

New Streetlights to Have Homeland Security Applications

And if you didn’t get the meaning of this post title, might I suggest you either rent, or look up on IMDB.com, a British television series called “The Prisoner.”

Because this is what may happen here if no one does anything to stop it.

UPDATEx26: Fast And Furious Grows More Legs

Ed Morrissey at the Hot Air site not only explains it well, but poses questions that DOJ must answer.

Trouble is, they haven’t and won’t – looks like.

The thing is, it isn’t just the BATFE. It’s the FBI also.

Ask yourself this, if the online instant check system prevented the strawman purchases (which that would have – since the men involved have prior records) would the Operation Fast & Furious have happened at all?

So this points to the higher ups in DOJ even moreso than previously discussed.

Does the term – egg on your face – mean anything to you, Eric Holder? How about you, Mr. President?

UPDATE: And lost track of over 1,000 guns. Mack and Mire obviously working on it.

UPDATEx2: The Associated Press now weighs in (via POWERLINE).

The Obama administration’s cover-up continues to this day, as Eric Holder’s Department of Justice stonewalls Congress, seemingly in order to prevent the investigation from reaching into the highest levels of the administration. If the media’s need to protect the fast-sinking Obama administration were not so acute, this would be quite a scandal. It will be interesting to see how many newspapers outside the Southwest border region print the AP’s latest story.

UPDATEx3: The investigation expands.

UPDATEx4: So three WH officials received emails, huh?

UPDATEx5: Oh wow, this just gets better and better, or worse and worse, depending on your point of view. From Michelle Malkin, there is also information of not just guns being tossed, er – walked, to Mexican drug cartel(s). Sheesh. And then there’s what’s going on in Indiana, too.

UPDATEx6 and Bumped again: Oh, and two more tidbits: there was a third gun found at Border Agent Brian Terry’s murder, the FBI covered it up, and our tax dollars funded these “walked” guns purchases. If this don’t beat all.

UPDATEx7 and Bumped yet again: Apparently the DOJ is trying to derail the Congressional investigation by Issa. Methinks they protesteth too much.

UPDATEx8: And another piece of the puzzle at Hot Air. Cover-up was to protect an informant? And are there 200 murders as a consequence of this F&F program?

UPDATEx9: More audio, more treachery.

UPDATEx10: We didn’t talk to Mexico about this “program”? How un-neighborly.

UPDATEx11: This blows the “botched sting” theory.

UPDATEx12: What we’ve got here is failure to communicate. (line from Cool Hand Luke)

UPDATEx13: So now the NY Post gets it.

UPDATEx14: More details, much more. F&F at least started back in September 2009.

UPDATEx15: Accomplices named. Oh, and this flashback is pulled from the memory hole.

UPDATEx16: Documents released Friday evening (9/30/11), but not everything. There are, however, some interesting links wthin – such as letters, emails and a chart. A little more is said at Hot Air.

What’s this? DOJ considering getting rid of ATF??? Gee, what do they have to bury, er, hide??? And GatewayPundit chimes in.

UPDATEx17: PajamasMedia adds to the discussion with this little nugget – other operations that did the same. As confirmed by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News – Operation Wide Receiver.

UPDATEx18: So. The AG Eric Holder admits he doesn’t read every memo sent to him? Is that his excuse now? Why, exactly, is he the Attorney General???????

UPDATEx19 … Bumping again: Quite a list here:
House Republicans Request Special Counsel to Probe Holder on ‘Fast and Furious’
GOP Says Eric Holder is ‘Either Incompetent’ or ‘Misleading Congress’
CBS News Reporter Says White House Screamed, Swore at Her Over Fast and Furious
New documents show AG Eric Holder was briefed in July 2010

UPDATEx20:
Is CBS News Silencing Fast and Furious Reporter?
CNN’s Anderson interviews Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on F&F (via Hot Air)

And if you are interested at all about AG Eric Holder’s storied background, head on over to Michelle Malkin’s site about him.

UPDATEx21:
ATF officials reassigned in latest Fast and Furious fallout
Justice in full panic

Hhhmm, all of a sudden, it kinda looks like more media outlets are paying attention. Hhhmmm.

AHA! At last, Jake Tapper asks the Prez a tough question. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall at that presser. Oh, and Senator Cornyn is exactly right, it looks more like a cover-up.
And more memos.

UPDATEx22: Found in Mexico cartel’s house.

Updatex23: Holder to be subpoenaed? Oh, and Holder makes public about a terror plot bust. As Malkin says, question the timing.

UPDATEx24: This is too much. Love the question: How did the President know about F&F before the AG … back in March … before the AG claimed he even heard about it. HAH! GOTCHA both!

UPDATEx25: Friday, December 2, F&F document dump raises more questions.

UPDATEx26: Friday’s document dump (Jan 27, 2012) includes documentation proving Holder was informed immediately after the agent’s murder.

DOJ Redfines Stonewall

Darrell Issa on whether there should be a Special Prosecutor on the Fast and Furious DOJ Program.

With audio from the Sean Hannity radio program. Today.

via HotAirPundit.

My own question: What do you do when the top cop is corrupt?

Beyond DOJ’s Jurisdiction

It had better be.

In yet another stunning attack on freedom of religion, President Barack Obama’s Justice Department asked the Supreme Court last week to give the federal government the power to tell a church who its ministers will be.

Just how far is too far?

That is. Let’s see, how many parts of the U.S. Constitution has this Administration ignored and/or broken? So now they are attempting to rule INSIDE the affairs of a Church?

Where’s the lightning going to strike? And how many times? I want to know so I have my camera ready to record this calamity for posterity.

Next, they will tell us who we can and cannot worship. Yeah, tht’s next. Count on it.

Wake up, people. Remember in November 2012.
