Operation Fast and Furious has not gotten much airplay on the evening news lately, but the investigation is continuing to highlight the corruption within the Obama Administration under Attorney General Eric Holder. Fast and Furious was an operation begun by the ATF that took place from November 2009 to January 2011. It’s purpose was to set up gun purchases in the U.S. by go-between buyers (straw purchasers) for Mexican drug cartels so those weapons could be traced to higher ups in Mexico in the cartels.
But the ATF supposedly lost track of where the guns went and they ended up being used in crimes both in Mexico and here in the U.S., including in the murder of a U.S. border agent this past December. While the operation was in play several ATF agents expressed their concerns about the guns disappearing, but they were told to do their jobs and not worry about it by their superiors. Even law-abiding gun dealers told the ATF about their concerns, to no avail. The operation was abruptly shut down in January after the damage was already done, with 1600 firearms still unaccounted for.
Senator Grassley of Iowa and Representative Darrell Issa of California are investigating the operation and are being stonewalled by the Justice Department, according to Fox News. Three high ranking officials that were part of Operation Fast and Furious have since been relocated back to D.C.
So what were the real reasons behind this failed operation? Since the U.S. Department of Justice is obstructing the release of information on the issue, the true goals of Fast and Furious are open to speculation. Here’s what I think:
- Operation Fast and Furious was intended to push for restrictions on gun ownership in America. When the President of Mexico complained about U.S. firearms fueling the drug wars there, President Obama’s response was that shady U.S. gun dealers were selling firearms illegally across the border. Placing blame solely on gun dealers instead of on his own corrupt administration gave Obama the impetus to push for stricter gun regulations via executive order. The firearms in the operation were never intended to be traced.
- Operation Fast and Furious was also intended to make it appear that the war on drugs cannot be won so legalization of narcotics would eventually take place. Obama has claimed legalization of drugs is “worth a serious debate,” which is his covert way of saying that he and his advisers favor making narcotics legal. This is no surprise since I have firsthand knowledge that this is the position of several faculty members at the University of Chicago, where the Obamas taught.
- Operation Fast and Furious was intended to be used to push for the North American Union. With Mexico’s President facing increased pressure in his war against drug cartels, including police and military officers going rogue to join cartels, fueling the war with firearms to make things worse would highlight the dire need throughout North America that Mexico should not stand alone and that the U.S. and Canada should help in the war. And the Obama administration was more than ready, willing, and able to step in with more aid to Mexico so the foundations of the North American Union could continue to be laid.
Most networks have been strangely silent on this scandal, which could end up being as big as the Iran-Contra Affair. Why? They love Obama and are in agreement with the New World Order policies that Fast and Furious was supposed to bring about so what better way to make sure that Obama and his shady, corrupt policies move forward than to keep America in the dark? That’s my opinion.
