Fast and Furious Prologue

Whats Fast and Furious?: Read this prologue and official DOJ documents of the investigation to get caught up

Fast and Furious Prologue: “The previous joint staff report entitled The Department of Justice’s Operation Fast and Furious: Accounts of ATF Agents chronicled Operation Fast and Furious, a reckless program conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and the courageous ATF agents who came forward to expose it. Operation Fast and Furious made unprecedented use of a dangerous investigative technique known as “gunwalking.” Rather than intervene and seize the illegally purchased firearms, ATF’s Phoenix Field Division allowed known straw purchasers to walk away with the guns, over and over again. As a result, the weapons were transferred to criminals and Mexican Drug Cartels.” As stated by the joint staff reports prepared for the House oversight investigation led by Rep. Issa. [Official oversight documents]Soon after reaching the hand of the drug cartels, the guns were found at a crime scene where a 23 year old border patrol agent named Brian Terry was found murdered. [Brian Terry] Terry’s murder caused the operation to officially shut down; and spawned an investigation into “Fast and Furious” eventually leading to whistle blowers who provided reports that many in the Department of Justice knew about it.

  1. And Obama can’t blame Bush for this one! Well, except for the fact the whole “gun-walking” scheme started in 2006. But that’s not the point…
    Obama is Hitler!
