Four ATF Agents Working on Controversial Operation ‘Fast and Furious’ Tell their Story

Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) today released a report, “The Department of Justice’s Operation Fast and Furious: Accounts of ATF Agents.”  The report includes testimony from four Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) agents offering firsthand accounts about the controversial Operation Fast and Furious that allowed suspects to walk away with illegally purchased guns.  Two of the approximately 2,000 guns that ATF let criminals walk away with were found at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010.

“ATF agents have shared chilling accounts of being ordered to stand down as criminals in Arizona walked away with guns headed for Mexican drug cartels,” said Rep. Issa.  “With the clinical precision of a lab experiment, the Justice Department kept records of weapons they let walk and the crime scenes where they next appeared.  To agents’ shock, preventing loss of life was not the primary concern.”

“These agents have risked their lives working for the ATF and they’ve risked their careers by coming forward to speak the truth about a dangerous strategy that was doomed from the start,” Sen. Grassley said.  “The report shows the street agents’ perspective on this risky policy to let guns walk.  It should help people who are wondering what really happened during Operation Fast and Furious understand why we are continuing to investigate.”

    All in the name of furthering the NWO by using the resulting planned/inevitable deaths as reason to control, restrict and eventually disarm us! Hopefully catching them red handed like this will set them back another 100 years at least! The engineers and planners of this should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. And it is obvious that the list includes Holder and Obama. Lock ’em both up for 25 to life, along with anyone else found guilty of involvement. Make a BOLD statement that these types of tactics, designed to take away our 2nd Amendment rights, will be dealt with in the most solid and harsh manner allowed by law.

    I contacted my representives and senator in reference to the BATFE’s fast and loose approach to “law enforcement”.  I received a letter back stating that they had heard nothing about this but when they did, they would make it of highest priority.  OK, now either some’s lying in Washington or they have no true intentions of seriously looking into this rampant abuse of authority.  I hope I’m wrong but fear I’m not!
