Quote Of The Day

On Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder sent a long and petulant letter to a number of Congressional leaders on Operation Fast and Furious. Today, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, responded back. The closing paragraph is the quote of the day.

Operation Fast and Furious was the Department's most significant gun trafficking case. It related to two of your major initiatives – destroying the Mexican cartels and reducing gun violence on both sides of the border. On your watch, it went spectacularly wrong. Whether you realize yet or not, you own Fast and Furious. It is your responsibility.


  1. More like "arming the Mexican cartels and increasing the number of U.S. guns there to 90% to justify further infringing the right to keep and bear arms into oblivion".

  2. It appears to me that the CIA and the US Department of Justice have been engaged in destabilizing Mexico at the cost of tens of thousands of Mexican men, women and children. Obamah and his administration seem unconcerned about the deaths of so many Mexicans.

    Gun runner appears to be a tiny part of it. It has resulted in stricter BATFE gun regulations without the executive branch passing any laws. The BATFE is making laws through its regulations. Yet while they are not laws they are illegally created and enforced as laws.

    With gun runner, these agencies demonstrated that they freely engage in criminal activity. Then they demonstrated that our rights must be taken away because of their criminal activity. They do nothing to stop their own criminal activity.

    FEMA and HLS has shown that they are attempting to destabilize areas of the US. New Orleans during Katrina, Texas during the fires.

    What more will these criminal agencies do to destabilize the US? What they have been doing in Mexico? How many tens of thousands of US citizens will die in the destabilizing of the US?
