ATF is counting stolen guns, guns sold to foreign governments by Federal Firearms Licensees under the approval of the State Department and guns ATF and DOJ purposely sent into Mexico through Operation Fast and Furious as “guns being traced back to the U.S.”
Of all the myriad scandals of the Obama administration, there is one, largely ignored by the mainstream media, that could actually be its worst.
In my new book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup, I document the conspiracy of senior Obama officials to subvert the Second Amendment, which led directly to the murders of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, I.C.E. Agent Jaime Zapata and countless, faceless lives in Mexico. It debunks the Obama administration’s lies, denials and excuses. This administration was willing to use humans as collateral damage to push a political agenda, and had no shame in doing so. Now, the administration has no shame in covering up their reckless actions.
The attorneys of embattled former ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division Bill Newell and Phoenix Group VII Supervisor, the group that carried out Operation Fast and Furious, David Voth, are accusing Senator Charles Grassley and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa of making “many inaccurate and harmful statements” and “factual distortions against” their clients.
After thirteen months of investigation in the Obama Justice Department’s lethal Operation Fast and Furious and Attorney General Eric Holder’s sixth time answering questions from Congress on the topic, we are stuck with stonewalling, non-answers and more calls for gun control.
