Bombshell-Whitehouse Knew About Fast & Furious


It now finally dribbles out the the Whitehouse was in fact informed of the "Fast and Furious" operation of smuggling firearms illegally into Mexico. This looks to me to be about the same time frame in which the Whitehouse was whining about how American gun laws needed to be more restrictive in order to reduce Mexican drug gang related gun violence.

Smoking gun?
I don't think we have heard anywhere near the end of this and it may lead to criminal charges at the highest level.

Of course they knew. The "operation" was formed at the highest levels. It HAD TO BE, since so many agencies were in on the smuggling of guns.

I've lost all faith in the US government.

Yes, and the silence from the anti gun crowed is deafening.
Some innocent person uses a gun to save themselves from being clubbed or beaten to death and up goes a great and hewing cry about the cruelty of it. A slew of people are murdered with these guns illegally provided to drug dealers and.....**crickets**....

It's about time.

As this develops the lamestream media will be forced to deal with it or lose what little cred they may have left.
I would not look for too much hard biting reporting out of them though.

I don't see anything regarding Newell contacting the WH in the CNN one either. CBS has it, which was the source for the OP's link.

My comment was a general on about fast and furious coverage being lacking at certain "news outlets", not just on this story.



I wonder, if this had happened under say, oh I don't know, the Bush administration would it be leading the news instead of the "debt ceiling".

Karl Rove would have been frog marched out of the whitehouse, in front of a huge news scrum. Wait?? Didn't that really happen???

This story continues to get bigger and bigger and get legs under it. I think it is a matter of less than a week or two before the national news leads with it as the primary story with all of the new information coming out and congress hearings.
