Operation Fast and Furious: Why is American Media not covering it?
Operation Fast and Furious … had that bastard of an operation been conducted under a Republican President, the Democrats would be screaming bloody murder and demanding the heads of ALL connected to it, and the media would be orgasmic.
As it stands right now, the only people that seem to be terribly concerned about Fast and Furious are the Mexican authorities, a few American bloggers, the occasional Texas border paper and Brian A. Terry’s family.
I don’t mean to sound hard-hearted, I do have sympathy for the Mexican people that have fallen victim to this Fast and Furious debacle, and I am truly sorry for their loss, but what matters more to me is the death (MURDER) of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry.
Why is this Fast and Furious news not being BLASTED (no pun intended) all over the Mainstream Media? Does Barack Hussein Obama and his lackey, Eric Holder, truly have that much control over American media?
Why are so few major newspapers and far too few dedicated Conservative bloggers the only ones covering Fast and Furious? Why is broadcast news ignoring it? What is being hidden from the American people and the rest of the world?
And for what its worth, WHY aren’t the American people in an uproar over this? Why isn’t every American Conservative and Republican raising pure HELL over Fast and Furious?
Why aren’t Americans burning up fax and phone lines to their Senators and Congressional representatives? Why aren’t they jamming servers with emails demanding action?
More importantly, WHY aren’t ALL Republican Senators and House members all over this and backing Darrell Issa for everything it’s worth? Why isn’t *Cry me a River* Boehner on this like a dog on a bone, encouraging Darrell Issa? Why do I have a bad feeling that our Congress basically doesn’t give a damn?
So, what’s the latest on Fast and Furious you ask? Well, here you go.
Report: Guns used in Mexico lawyer’s murder traced to Operation Fast and Furious
Firearms connected to Operation Fast and Furious were used in the 2010 slaying of the brother of the former Chihuahua state attorney general, according to a U.S. congressional report.
The report said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives traced two of the weapons suspected in the murder of lawyer Mario González Rodríguez, but did not report this fact to the Mexican government until eight months after the tracing.
The joint congressional staff report “The Department of Justice’s Operation Fast and Furious: Fueling Cartel Violence” was prepared for U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., two lawmakers who are spearheading an ongoing investigation into the ATF’s controversial operation.
“On October 21, 2010, drug cartel members kidnapped Mario González Rodríguez from his office,” according to the 2011 congressional report. “At the time of the kidnapping, his sister Patricia González Rodríguez was the attorney general of the state of Chihuahua.”
I’ve done quite a bit of writing about Fast and Furious, as have many other Conservative bloggers, but we have to do MORE!
These stories have got to be seen by ALL Americans, even those on the Democratic side of the aisle. Surely they can’t all be like Obama … can they?
Some may not have seen all of the following links, there is quite a bit of info in the links, and most of it was garnered from media sources, such as they are.
