Obama and Company knew it since day one. It was their idea to crack down on gun ownership.

Remember Richard Nixon? He found out after the break-ins happened, because he did not immediately report it, he was guilty of conspiracy after the fact. Breaking and entering is a felony. The constitution is very specific about felonies and elected officials.
Fast and Furious is about a murder.
The question is, did B. Hussien Obama know before, during, or after the fact that US weapons were being given to agents of a drug cartel.
Liberals, I know he was just a border patrolman, and not important enough to raise your ire.
If he provides the guns that he reasonably knew would be used by drug thugs to commit a crime, and the crime was committed (murder of a border patrol officer), that makes him a conspirator.

He knew, he knows. He has always been a terrorist sympathizer, he has proven time and time again that he had made deals with illegals to help him overthrow our Government and WE THE PEOPLE paid for it, financially, and with our Liberties, Freedoms, and our persuit of happiness.
His father's Dream was to bring down America through our economic system. If you EVER get the chance to read his original book do so.

Nice try, little neocon.
The effort(s) to trace gun-runners' sales through use of an informant, a.k.a., "Fast & Furious" sting operation, was set up by three different agencies and is actually ongoing. Some of the sting weapons were lost to the tracking system, but not all of them. Two persons have already lost their jobs and a full review is underway because of the snafu. President Obama is removed from the day-to-day details of these types of actions because, like Presidents before him, he delegates authority to those people nominated to head the various agencies. One he was apprised of the situation, he took swift action and asked the Justice Department to investigate. That investigation continues as we speak.

If IF he did its impeachment, Nixon was impeached over a burglary this is far worse wrongful death of a border agent and multiple weapons felonies PLUS using the gun running he himself was doing to try to steal 2nd amendment rights.
Paperclip is right Jake is a douchenozzle.

On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill and met with President Obama. According to Sarah Brady, Obama brought up the issue of gun control, "to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda," she said.
"I just want you to know that we are working on it," Brady recalled the president telling them. "We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar."
Fast and Furious was certainly "under the table"

If he did not know about an incident, a crime this heinous in his own administration then he should not be president, and if he did know, then he should be impeached..
Sorry Jake but you are wrong... It was a crime, especially when the firearms knowingly sold to felon drug lords, adversaries in Americas so called war on drugs were used in the commission of a felonious murder of a U.S Border Patrol Agent... Uh Jake, get a clue, or keep your cock sucker closed because you do not know what you are talking about.

He gave his "Gun and Murder Czar" permission for it,and knew about it from the beginning.

It was probably his idea.
Many people have been killed, and who knows what will happen now that these guns are in the hands of cartels.

Good luck with this. You people are clowns. If George Bush wasn't impeached nobody ever will be.
