NEW EVIDENCE: New “Fast and Furious” Docs Confirm Exactly What Eric Holder Wanted to Hide
Scum of the earth Eric Holder may be under fire AGAIN for his involvement in Fast and Furious. New documents just released confirm that the Fast and Furious scandal led to the highest reaches of Holder’s Justice Department and that the operation was used as part of an assault on the Second Amendment by extremist liberals.
It comes from an internal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) Public Affairs Talking Points memorandum, in which the ATF acknowledges they were using “Fast and Furious” to further public policy aims on gun control.
“These cases demonstrate the ongoing trafficking of firearms by Mexican DTO’s and other associated groups operating in Arizona and the need for reporting of multiple sales for certain types of rifles in order to ferret out those intent on providing firearms to these criminal groups,” the memorandum reads. Of course, the ATF wasn’t planning on mentioning just where these firearms were coming from, because why spoil a good story with the (very illegal) facts?
Okay, you may say. Perhaps ATF higher-ups weren’t briefed on the extent of “Fast and Furious?” Yeah, no, this document release destroys that fiction, too. It proves that ATF headquarters in Washington knew full well these weapons were making it into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
“The firearms are then being trafficked into Mexico using non-factory compartments in various vehicles through various Ports of Entry (POE’s) in Arizona and Texas,” reads a funding request for “Fast and Furious” in October, 2010. Since the ATF case was initiated, agents have identified approximately twenty-seven straw purchasers who have purchased a large amount of AK-47 style rifles and pistols from various FFLs in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and Prescott, Arizona, since September 2009.”
Note the “are then being trafficked” in the first paragraph. The present tense indicates that the operation was ongoing and the higher-ups in Washington were aware of it.
I remain unsurprised in finding out Eric Holder knows more about the Fast and Furious scandal than he’s admitted to. The problem is… the people who should care, really don’t and I am doubtful this new evidence will affect Mr. Holder.
