slowly made it across the country to Washington, where Obama DOJ appointees raised concerns with top ATF officials. Though they may be faulted for moving too slowly, eventually these DOJ appointees alerted their boss, Attorney General Holder, who was horrified and acted decisively to shut the operation down.
Bunk. In fact, Fast and Furious was an OCDETF case. That made it a Main Justice case, not the orphan Arizona debacle of media portrayal.
Fast and Furious began in the fall of 2009, when agents in ATF’s Phoenix office developed their strategy — including the fateful gunwalking tactic — with the U.S. attorney. But things really got going in January 2010. It was then that the case became an OCDETF investigation. This does not just happen in the blink of an eye. It is a deliberate process. ATF and the U.S. attorney had to apply to Main Justice for OCDETF status. A case gets approval for funding — which can run well into the millions of dollars — only if senior Justice Department officials, after studying the formally submitted proposal, determine that the investigation has great promise.
I'd strongly suggest reading it all. There's NO WAY Holder & Co. did not know what was going on. And if he continues to claim ignorance, then he's admitting to a criminal level of incompetence.
Which, of course, isn't keeping the major medial clowns like Maddow from claiming "It's nothing, I tell you! All dreamed up by Fox and the NRA!"
Oh my, the illegal immigrant lobby and the White House must be having conniptions. And Arizona is breaking out an early drink to celebrate.
Really, Dallas County SO? THIS is something you want to be known for? And how much do you think it's going to cost you in the end?
Keeping You Safe. Except not:
These fools are keeping us safe?!?
The TSA’s bungling reached a new low yesterday when a JFK Airport terminal had to be evacuated and hundreds of passengers marched back through security screening all because one dimwitted agent failed to realize his metal detector had been unplugged, sources told The Post.
The stunning error led to hours of delays, two planes called back from the runway and infinite frustration for furious passengers.
“The truth is, this is the failure of the most basic level of diligence,” a law-enforcement source said.
Ya think MAYBE?
REAL witch hunts. With specially-trained police squads.
