Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal - Katie Pavlich - Townhall Conservative Columnists
(The whole article worth reading, I don't care what ACLG and his butt kissing pals on this board say.)
| Operation Fast and Furious is the deadliest and most sinister scandal in American history. A scandal so big, itís worse than Iran-Contra and makes Watergate look like a high school prank gone wrong. |
In the early days of the Obama Administration, President Obama claimed his goal was to stop the trafficking of guns from the United States into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels. He claimed gun dealers in the United States were responsible for sending guns to Mexico. Both of his claims were lies.
Kudos to a recent ABC radio news broadcast, they quoted an AP (Arab Press aka Amalgamated (Orwelian) Propaganda) which stated the supposed fact that 70% of the guns used in crimes in Mexico had originated in the USA. (Of course as with any propaganda piece, the AP fails to mention that most of the guns recovered are known to have originated elsewhere, the Mexicans only submitted those guns that might have come from America, the real figure is less that 17% of the total.)
At any rate ABC did have the decency to note that the AP had failed to mention fast and furious (and several other similar federal operations of the like) and perhaps how many of thse weapons had come through the f&f program.
One can only sweep so much under the rug before everyone notices the rug is bulging upward.
