So there's this organization called FTA that is designed to stop drug cartels and illegal arms selling by actually selling guns that they keep track of, wait for them to reach higher ups, and then catch the leaders of drug cartels and other deadly organizations. However, of the 2000 guns in project fast and furious, only 700 have been recovered and no powerful leaders imprisoned.
However, where the real problem begins is that several guns that where used in this project have been found in Mexican American borders involved in violent crimes that involved the deaths of many Mexicans and at least one American federal agent. It was later found that congress and the white house knew about this but Obama insisted on saying that neither he nor attorney general Eric Holder knew about gun walking practices.
When republicans ask for the documents in these cases, Holder tells them no and is later held in "contempt of congress" eventually leading Obama to use his executive privilege to withhold the documents.
Do you feel this makes Obama look guilty or not?
- From the Philip Defanco show.
Yeah it is odd. But makes sense if Obama doesn't trust Congress. I know my replies make me look like some conspiracy nut but perhaps he doesn't trust some people in Congress. I'm not a genius on American Politics but things get out to the public and maybe that's what Obama is trying to prevent.
On a side note, Fast and Furious was a stupid idea from the start. It's like the Taliban all over again.. Arming the enemy and now it's gonna bite us in the A**
Without a doubt....stepping in at the very last minute, OBVIOUSLY something to hide.....all the while claiming his is the most OPEN AND TRANSPARENT administration ever......his rhetoric is wonderful, his Actions destructive to America.....all he knows to do is BLAME..can't run on his failed policies and take note..he says nothing on what he would change/do to fix his first 4 yrs mess if re-elected....
Yep, says it all the way at the bottom :) But why isn't at least being revealed to Congress? That's the really odd part, that it seems to me that only the Attorney General and the President are the ones that can get to this information as of now.
Did u get this from PhillyD? And no. I think he may be guilty but he may be withholding it for reasons beyond him being guilty. Maybe not but perhaps there is information in the forms and papers that shouldn't be revealed to the public.
Darn right and a little digging reveals this is the least of his crimes.
they're politicians. they're ALL guilty of something!!
