So Eric Holder ran away from yesterday’s Iran Terror publicity stunt press conference because he was asked about Fast and Furious – Fast and Furious is the Obama program to give guns and ammo to Mexican drug cartels – Then we are told that the Iran government tried to hire Mexican drug cartel personnel to kill the Saudi ambassador in Washington. Does anyone smell a whiff of Reagan era Iran-Contra?????
What the Hell is going on?????
Larry Johnson is right to scratch is head in disbelief. The Crawdads have scratched heads too. Maybe it is all a coincidence and we have gone off the deep end, but we do think Hillary is onto something even if she is not exactly saying what we think she is saying:
“The idea that they would attempt to go to a Mexican drug cartel to solicit murder-for-hire to kill the Saudi ambassador, nobody could make that up, right?” [Hillary]Clinton told The Associated Press.”
We don’t know what to think about the alleged terror plot or what smells an awful lot like Iran-Contra but we certainly want a lot more information. If we find Obama sent a Koran to Ahmadinejad our heads will not explode.
Iran-Contra involved “senior Reagan administration officials and President Reagan secretly facilitated the sale of arms to Iran… The scandal began as an operation to free American hostages being held by terrorist groups with Iranian ties. It was planned that Israel would ship weapons to Iran, and then the U.S. would resupply Israel and receive the Israeli payment. The Iranian recipients promised to do everything in their power to achieve the release of six U.S. hostages, who were being held by the Lebanese Shia Islamist group Hezbollah, who in turn were connected to the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution. The plan deteriorated into an arms-for-hostages scheme, in which members of the executive branch sold weapons to Iran in exchange for the release of the American hostages.”
Money went to anti-Sandinista rebels in Nicaragua back then and we still do not have a full account of what happened. But Israel giving weapons to Iran and money from that transaction used to fund Latin American counter insurgency – “Nobody could make that up, right?”
We don’t know what the Hell is going on but we sure as blazes want to know. The one thing we do know is that Obama is a boob and his boobery is a danger. Recall “no preconditions”.
Obama in 2007 lied extensively and repeatedly after he declared his “no preconditions” stupidity. We won’t review that history today (here and here for those that need a reminder). But we warned at the time that such stupidity would be viewed as weakness by America’s enemies. We warned Obama is a danger.
The Iranian government certainly has viewed Obama as someone to treat with the utmost contempt. Can anyone make the case that Obama deserves anything but contempt? (Larry Johnson also flags the report that Obama wanted to apologize to the Japanese for the nuclear bombings of the Japanese Empire in World War II. Whether the Japanese waved him off or not the Obama weakness and potential apology is always hovering in the air.)
From the standpoint of Obama weakness it makes sense that Iran would make terror moves in the United States with impunity. But little makes sense about Fast and Furious, starting with the fact that a supposed gun tracing operation had little to no tracing of guns.
Attorney General Eric Holder running away from Fast and Furious questions at the Iran Terror assassination press conference does make sense if we are not supposed to see a connection between the two issues.
We need answers about Fast and Furious in a most fast and most furious way. There is a huge coverup going on and we need answers real fast.
Sharyl Attkisson of CBS (CBS? What a pleasant surprise) has been intimidated by Obama thugs to get her to stop digging and stop reporting. But Sharyl Attkisson is on the job:
“In Fast and Furious, the ATF allegedly allowed thousands of assault rifles and other weapons into the hands of suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels. The idea was to see where the weapons ended up, and take down a cartel. But the guns have been found at many crime scenes in Mexico and the U.S., including the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry last December.
A source familiar with the Oversight Committee’s plans tells CBS News the subpoena request was prompted by the Justice Department dragging its feet in voluntarily turning over information to investigators, and new documents obtained by CBS News last week which seem to contradict Holder’s account of when he learned of the operation.
More questions were raised by the documents reported on last week, which indicate senior officials at the Justice Department knew at least something of Fast and Furious, and memos were sent directly to the Attorney General as long as ten months before he told Congress he first heard of the case.”
Today Congressman Issa issued subpoenas for Holder demanding full documentation on Fast and Furious. Issa might have to expand his investigation into areas even he did not suspect if there is any connection to Iran and the guns of Mexican cartels provided courtesy of Barack Obama. We’ll wait and see if and when “national security” is invoked.
Today’s statement by Joe Biden that we’ll unite the world to isolate Iran by doing pretty much what we’ve been doing all along is not reassuring. Of course neither Joe Biden nor Hillary Clinton are in charge.
No, the boob in charge is the one that was angry and disagreed with Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden – the boob in charge is the one that wanted to have “no preconditions” when it came to Iran. Such weakness invites attack.
The boob is in charge and we are in danger. Iran and the Mexican crime cartels are safe.
