Obama, Fast & Furious & Terrorism

Obama, Hillary and other disingenuous liberals are feigning anger that guns were used, yet once again, to further the murderous cause of the radical Islamic terrorists. There I said it. I just wish they would point the finger at the real culprit, the criminal, instead of the inanimate object, the gun. But if you want to talk about the gun, let’s go there.

This is an excerpt from a very detailed article, no. 83, July 25, 2012, by John Malcomb at Heritage Foundation, on the government releasing guns into the criminal communities in a program called, Fast & Furious . . .

“In late 2009 or early 2010, some of the agents involved with Operation Fast and Furious began to object to some of the investigative techniques being used, including gunwalking. Some of the cooperating gun store owners also told ATF agents that they were uncomfortable making repeated sales to individuals they suspected or knew were involved in criminal activity. The ATF agents and prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s office repeatedly assured these store owners that the weapons were being tracked and that their sales not only posed no danger to the public, but also would assist law enforcement in bringing dangerous criminals to justice.

On October 21, 2010, Sinaloa drug cartel members kidnapped Mario Gonzalez Rodriguez, the brother of former Chihuahua State Attorney General Patricia Gonzalez Rodriguez. On November 5, his tortured body was discovered in a shallow grave. Following a shootout in which Rodriquez’s suspected kidnappers were apprehended, Mexican police seized 16 weapons, two of which were traced to Operation Fast and Furious.

On December 15, 2010, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, a 40-year-old former Marine, was killed in a firefight while on patrol; two of the guns involved in the shooting were traced to Operation Fast and Furious.

On January 25, 2011, Arizona U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke announced the indictment of 20 individuals connected with Operation Fast and Furious and provided the first public details of the investigation. DOJ officials had discussed bringing Holder to Phoenix for the press conference; however, in the aftermath of Terry’s death, the task of attending the press conference with Burke fell to SAC Newell, who, when asked whether ATF had allowed guns to walk, surprised his colleagues by stating, ‘Hell, no.’”

So if Obama, Hillary, Harry Reid and the other duplicitous, lying politicians want to blame anyone, they will have to put the blame squarely on the shoulders of their own twisted system that provided guns to criminals in the hopes that crimes like this would be committed so they could bring out their anti-gun drums and beat them until the gullible electorate fell for it.

Sorry guys, not this time. You won’t even say that these murderers in San Bernadino were radical Islamic terrorists even though the wife pledged her allegiance to ISIS on line. How in the world does anyone think you care about defending and protecting our freedoms? And the more Hillary does her witch scream about the evils of guns suggesting that any American with one is a potential terrorist, the more the gun sales go off the charts.

And if anyone is waging a war on women, it is the elitists who have their secret service and armed body guards, like Hillary, Bloomberg and every other entitled politician and wealthy liberal. They can have guns around them, but not women in their own homes to protect themselves from hostile invaders. They are told they are the criminal if they even suggest the Second Amendment allows them to keep and bear arms. The left is so out of touch with the heart of America that they equate the head of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre with a terrorist who wants to cut your head off. No, Wayne wants you to have the right to defend yourself in light of the fact that your government has want only released hundreds of assault weapons into the criminal pipeline.

It would not be shocking if we discovered that this is where the charming Islamic couple got there guns. Oddly though, not much is said about the dozens of pipe bombs they had in their possession. Are they now going to post the photo of the president of Ferguson Plumbing on the cover of their tacky little rag suggesting he is as dangerous as a terrorist, or as Wayne?

So, New York Daily News . . . if you want to put the pictures of people who could be responsible for terrorist acts in America, just replace the photo of Wayne LaPierre with one of Obama or Eric Holder or pretty much anyone at the Justice Department who allowed these assault weapons to be released into the criminal communities, because we know they have been used to kill innocent people. But, as despicable as it is, that our government would hatch a lethal gun running scheme, it still took criminals, murderers and yes, even Islamic Terrorists to pull the trigger on these inanimate objects.

(I encourage you to get the entire article that John Malcomb wrote about the Fast & Furious gun running scheme, it was in the Heritage Foundation, Legal Memorandum no. 83, July 25, 2012.)
