The Obama Administration has given Americans lies and more lies. I suppose they think they can hide the truth if they lie about it enough times. They apparently believe as Adolph Hitler: if you tell a big enough lie, people will be convinced.
Years after the U.S. Government lost hundreds of guns in the Fast and Furious scandal, information continues to come out. The first clue that the guns were being used by drug cartels was when one of the guns was found near the body of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who was murdered on the U.S.-Mexico border. Attorney General Eric Holder failed to reveal information about the operation to Congress and was held in contempt of Congress – the first Attorney General to receive this dubious honor.
Apparently, another gun lost under Fast and Furious was involved in yet another crime. House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) recently charged that the Justice Department is covering up this crime.
Issa and Grassley sent a letter to Deputy Attorney General Eric Cole that Judicial Watch obtained public records showing “that law enforcement officials recovered a Fast and Furious gun last summer in connection with a shooting that left two individuals wounded.” Their letter explained that Sean Steward bought 40 guns under the watchful eye of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. They reported that only eight of the guns were recovered by the ATF. There seems to be evidence that one of the lost guns was used in the shooting.
The two Congressmen wrote that they could confirm the assault rifle recovered on July 30, 2013, was purchased by Sean Christopher Steward because they have the serial number from the police report. They added that the Justice Department did not reveal anything and failed to notify Congress. Without the documents from Judicial Watch, none of the information would have come to light.
“Unless the information becomes available some other way, the public would never know…. This lack of transparency about the consequences of Fast and Furious undermines public confidence in law enforcement and gives the impression that the Department is still seeking to suppress information and limit its exposure to public scrutiny.”
The Congressmen asked the Justice Department for more information about Fast and Furious even though the DOJ has not presented the information asked for in 2012 and 2013. They want to know if the rifle has been used in any other crimes as well as how many other weapons from Fast and Furious were used in other violent incidents. Congress continues to ask questions without getting any answers from the DOJ. No matter, the truth will eventually come out as long as we have leaders and other Americans who are willing to fight the fight.
Truth continues to come out about several scandals involving officials from the Obama Administration and the Clinton Administration: Benghazi, Whitewater, the IRS targeting conservatives, etc. If we have enough time, we may get to the bottom of all the scandals!
