Are CONservatives ignoring that Fast and Furious is part of Project Gunrunner?

that started under Bush, and just trying to use an unfortunate death (that who are we kidding, the smugglers would have still had guns) to push forward a BS agenda as usual?


"The ATF began Project Gunrunner as a pilot project in Laredo, Texas, in 2005 and expanded it as a national initiative in 2006."

FROM MY LINK...Who was president then?? Do you need to see it in CRAYON??

    Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer became the first high-ranking official Tuesday to admit that he knew U.S. agents were letting thousands of guns sold in the U.S. fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

    But Breuer says the controversial “gun walking” tactics he learned about in April 2010 weren't part of “Operation Fast and Furious,” but rather a previous investigation during the Bush administration called “Wide Receiver.”

    Wide Receiver was an operation during the Bush administration similar to Fast and Furious under the Obama administration where illegally purchased weapons entered Mexico instead of being stop by ATF. Under Wide Receiver, which ran from 2006 to the end of 2007, the ATF recruited a gun dealer to sell some 450 assault rifles to known straw buyers and then watched as many of those guns crossed the Mexican border.

    Perhaps the CONs are so plagued by guilt for all the damages they did to this nation at every single level from 2001 through to 2007 as well as the GOP's wimping out and allowing the corporate-funded and FISCALLY ILLITERATE freshmen teabagging evangelical extremists to bully their way into having this nation DOWNGRADED for the first time in history that they are now grasping at straws to project blame away from their nation-destroying selves and onto anyone in their line of fire.

    The hearings on the "Fast and Furious" sting operation have been shown on C-SPAN the last day or two, and no Republicans have mentioned (as far as I know) that the program began under the Bush/Cheney regime. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has testified at length on anything that is not classified (there may still be some portion of the undercover operation that is working, but this could not be stated publicly). Republicans are trying to DISTRACT so that the public will not notice their dereliction of duty in passing the very much needed American JOBS Act and getting our nation's teachers, firefighters, police officers, and our veterans back to work.

    you relatively comprehend no longer something approximately how the different regulation enforcement departments function. The ATF has been with no everlasting director because of the fact 2006, while Congress required the situation to be shown by using the Senate. With the efficient gun foyer waiting to block a director because of the fact one senator can postpone a nomination, Obama in November nominated Andrew Traver, who's particular agent in fee of ATF’s Chicago container branch. however the national Rifle association strongly opposes Traver because of the fact the employer believes he's related to gun-administration advocates and anti-gun activities, the employer has mentioned. His nomination has stalled interior the Senate. Melson, a former federal prosecutor in Alexandria and longtime Justice branch respected, grew to grow to be the ATF’s appearing director in April 2009. So Obama has been no longer able to group the organization with an enduring director because of the fact the republicans and the gun foyer have stalled affirmation. one extra occasion of ways Republicans attempt to block Obama from achieving something. besides the undeniable fact that, in easy of this scandal, they are falling throughout themselves to study Andrew Traver's nomination. Too undesirable it takes this manner of crap to get them to give up this infantile game of blockading each and every thing.

    Only the Obama administration allowed drug cartel members to actually take possession of the weapons and leave the premises with them.
