Obama's Fast and Furious Program Linked To 200 Murders In Mexico and 11 Crimes In USA Including 1 Murder Of US Border Agent

Obama's Fast and Furious Program is linked to 200 murders in Mexico. And the program is linked to at least 11 crimes here in the United States including the murder of US border agent Brian Terry.


In a conference call this morning with Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa, reporters were told the Attorney General in Mexico has confirmed at least 200 murders south of the border happened as a result of Operation Fast and Furious. Eleven crimes in the United States have been linked to Operation Fast and Furious up to this point. Issa said he expects as the investigation in the operation continues, more crimes connected to Fast and Furious will come to light and be exposed. This is not surprising, considering out of 2500 weapons the Obama Justice Department allowed to “walk,” and that only 600 have been recovered, the rest are lost until they show up at violent crime scenes. The damage from Operation Fast and Furious has only started to be seen. Remember, the Mexican Government and ATF agents working in Mexico were left completely in the dark about the operation.

Since this scandal came to light in March 2011, the Obama Justice Department has continually stonewalled the investigation from the House Oversight Committee, and not much has changed. Issa said there is an ongoing cover-up of a pattern of ongoing mistakes and that the Justice Department continues to use petty prosecutions to limit information given to the Oversight Committee.

“People are picking their words very carefully," Issa said.

When asked what the consequences would be for DOJ or ATF officials involved in the operation, Issa said prosecutions may come at the end of this scandal to those who knowingly trafficked weapons across the border and could be held accountable for the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

“This was dumb, it was useless and it was lethal,” Issa said.


Wild Thing's comment..........

Obama has the most corrupt administration we’ve ever had. This stuff makes Watergate look like child’s play. And all the what is it 82 deaths ( mysterious deaths ) during the Clinton regime....pale to Obama's Fast and Furious.

I wonder if Mexico will step up to the plate and testify?

20 years to life would be a start.

I hope to hell the Oversight Committee pursues this crime to the end. Holder and obama need to go down in flames. It would also be nice to cull some of the hierarchy of both ATF and the FBI.

Mark, ditto that.

Tom, I sure do too. Issa is good, but I always worry he will back away, from the pressure on him. I want him to stay strong big time.
