Will Obama Be The Next Nixon?


It is not looking good. At least when Nixon lied, nobody died!

Barry and his crew knew all about this. They changed the name of the scheme! It was originally Project Fast and Furious!

Under the Obama administration, a controversial government project that runs guns into Mexico has contributed to fraudulent statistics seemingly targeting U.S. gun owners. The misleading data raise questions about the intentions of Project Gunrunner,…

    Obama himself no doubt approved of this operation so he is highly liable for this, It’s bad enough we have the Red Communist Chinese supplying machine Guns to the street gangs and to have The President of the USA giving out guns to the terrorists cartels so they can use those guns against us is asinine. I have no doubts about de facto President Obama approving this operation.

    Controversy

    ATF Project Gunrunner has a stated official objective to stop the sale and export of guns from the United States into Mexico in order to deny Mexican drug cartels the firearms considered “tools of the trade”.[16] However, since September 2009 under Project Gunrunner, operation “Fast and Furious”, did the opposite by ATF permitting, encouraging and facilitating ‘straw purchase’ firearm sales to traffickers, and allowing the guns to ‘walk’ and be transported to Mexico. This has resulted in the death of US border agent Brian Terry and considerable controversy.[17][18][19]

    Senator Charles E. Grassley (R-IA) initiated an investigation with a letter to ATF on 27 January 2011,[20] and again on 31 January 2011. ATF responded through the Department of Justice by denying all allegations.[21] Senator Grassley responded with specific documentation supporting the allegations in letters to U.S. Attorney General Holder on 9 Feb 2011[22] and 16 Feb 2011.[23] ATF refused to answer specific questions in a formal briefing to Senator Grassley on 10 Feb 2011.

    Indictments filed in federal court, documentation obtained by Senator Grassley, and statements of ATF agents obtained by Senator Grassley and CBS News, show that the ATF Phoenix Field Division allowed and facilitated the sale of over 2,500 firearms (AK-47 rifles, FN 5.7mm pistols, AK-47 pistols, and .50 caliber rifles) in ‘straw man purchases’ destined for Mexico. [17][24][25][26][27][28]According to ATF agents, Mexican officials were not notified, and ATF agents operating in Mexico were instructed not to alert Mexican authorities about the operation.[29] Some ATF agents and supervisors strongly objected, and gun dealers (who were cooperating with ATF) protested the sales, but were asked by ATF to complete the transactions to expose the supply chain and gather intelligence.[17][30] However, there are accusations that the ATF was attempting to boost statistics to ‘prove’ that American guns are arming the Mexican drug cartels and to further budget and political objectives.[31]

    Many of these same guns are being recovered from crime scenes in Arizona[32] and throughout Mexico,[33] which is artificially inflating ATF’s eTrace statistics of U.S. origin guns seized in Mexico. One specific gun, recovered at the scene, is alleged to be the weapon used to murder Customs and Border Protection Agent Brian Terry on December 14, 2010.[34]

    Wayne, Nixon was covering for his buddies. But he lied. Project Fast and Furious started under Bush Jr. Barry re-named it Gun- Runner. If internet news sources and Fox keep it in the news, this will be his down fall. Bad thing is, Mrs. Clinton could step up and run. 😦
