No Answer From White House on Involvement in Fast and Furious

The relatively trivial Watergate scandal brought down a presidency not because Richard Nixon had any involvement in it, but because he unwisely tried to cover it up. We may never know for sure that Barack Hussein Obama knew all along that his administration was helping Mexican drug lords smuggle American guns, but he sure hasn’t been coming clean:

On June 27, CNSNews.com asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, “Could you tell me what is the exact date that the president learned about the Justice Department ATF operation to allow guns to flow into Mexico?”

Carney apparently had trouble understanding the question, saying, “I mean, I think I’ve answered this question a bunch about — about what he learned?”

CNSNews.com said, “What is the exact date that he learned about it?”

Carney apparently still did not understand. “The exact thing that he learned?”

CNSNews.com again clarified, “Exact date — date.”

Carney finally responded, “I’ll have to get back to you. I don’t have an exact date for you.”

The White House has since not responded to questions about an exact date or approximate date when Obama learned about the operation.

The next day, June 28, CNSNews.com sent a follow-up e-mail to Carney. Then on July 6, CNSNews.com e-mailed Carney and the White House press office, and called the White House press office to ask for the exact date the president became aware of “Operation Fast and Furious.” In lieu of a precise date, CNSNews.com said an approximate date of a month and year would be helpful.

Neither Carney nor another White House spokesperson replied.

Obviously they are taking care not to get caught in a lie, as the Department of Injustice’s Eric Holder has already done.

The Justice Department in Washington, D.C., the U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Arizona, the FBI, and the Drug Enforcement Administration were also involved, according to findings by congressional investigators.

Given the scale of the operation, and that its apparent purpose was to generate dead bodies killed with American guns to use as ammunition against the Second Amendment, it would be surprising if the White House wasn’t involved too.

With a hostile press, Obama’s reelection would already be out of the question. The obsequious lapdogs of the establishment media have their work cut out for them, keeping him propped up.
