Documents that were released this week by the House of Representatives proves without a doubt that the Republicans were right all along that there was an ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) cover-up on the gun running program that had generated a lot of controversy just before the 2012 presidential election. This was the undoing where an ATF gun was used in killing Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December of 2010. The biggest suspicion of course was when Obama used executive privilege to seal many of these documents.
The following was published by Personal Liberty News: “More than previously understood, the documents show the lengths to which senior Department officials went to keep information from Congress,” said Oversight chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz. “Further, the documents reveal how senior Justice Department officials—including Attorney General Eric Holder—intensely followed and managed an effort to carefully limit and obstruct the information produced to Congress.”
“In one 2011 email, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein advises that the ATF “can and should strongly refute” any claims that DOJ officials allowed guns to flow illegally into Mexico.”
“In other words, just over a year after an ATF gun was used to murder Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December 2010 the DOJ consensus was that lying outright was better for its credibility than admitting its illegal mistake.”
I have been saying that all these scandals are still under investigation and with patience the stories will come out because of the electronic age, material once thought of as being buried forever by the evil-doers and than one day it surfaces, there is no getting away as long as the legal system does it’s job and puts the pieces together because you know as well as I do the Obama Justice Department as you can see above is not going to do anything about it until they are backed up against the wall to produce what they had been hiding such as in the case of Fast and Furious. I know there will be many who will say and have the right to ask, well what are they going to do about it? All we can do is wait and see. We have come this far when people were saying there was no hope.
