Obama media silent on administration gun smuggling scandal that killed border agent

May 10, 2012 15:00

Obama’s media sympathizers continue their silence on the administration’s refusal to cooperate with the House committee investigating the administration’s politically motivated gun smuggling operation known as Fast and Furious.

The administration through the ATF and with the knowledge of DHS coerced gun store owners into allowing known gun smugglers to make bulk buys of semiautomatic weapons which would end up in the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels. The plan was working even over the objections of some gun store owners as over 2,000 weapons were transferred to the drug cartels.

The administration hoped to then use the increased numbers of American guns found at drug cartel gun battles to claim that more extensive American gun control was so needed that Obama would be justified in using executive orders and bypassing congress to restrict gun sales.

Problems for the administration arose when guns from the operation turned up in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. The House committee chaired by Rep. Daryl Issa has been trying for a year to get documents from AG Holder. The committee has received only 10% of the documents available to the DOJ. The administration has also refused to allow testimony from a key witness with knowledge that connects the disastrous operation to thew Whit House.
