Suddenly remembering that why, yes, he did know about No Mexican Drug Cartel Left Unarmed™ a lot sooner than he’d sworn earlier
Attorney General Eric Holder flip-flopped his Operation Fast and Furious testimony during a Tuesday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. During a May 3 House Judiciary Committee hearing, Holder told Congressional investigators at least twice that he had only learned of the controversial Operation Fast and Furious gun-walking program a “few weeks” beforehand. But testifying Tuesday, Holder’s timeline changed.
His new testimony amounts to an admission that he misled Congress during that May 3 hearing. House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa and Rep. Jason Chaffetz both asked him during that hearing when he had first learned of “Fast and Furious,” and he answered the same way twice.
“I did say a ‘few weeks,’” Holder clarified Tuesday, responding to questions from Vermont Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. “I probably could’ve said ‘a couple of months.’ I didn’t think the term I said, ‘few weeks,’ was inaccurate based on what happened.”
“A few weeks”, “a few months”, what’s the difference? Tell that to Scooter Libby who was convicted for not being able to accurately recall, to the last minute detail, a conversation he’d had years prior.
Not important. What is important is that Holder mass-shipping illegal guns to known criminals in Mexico, leading to hundreds of murders, is positive proof that we need more gun control, according to Holder:
“On March 10, I testified about this matter before the Senate Appropriations Committee. So, clearly, by the time I testified in may, before the House Committee I’d known about Fast and Furious for several weeks, as I indicated, a couple of months. The focus on which day, which month in some ways is a bit of a distraction.
Entirely avoidable if you hadn’t been lying through your teeth the whole time, of course.
It does nothing to address what I think concerns us most and that is the flow of weapons from the United States across the Southwest border,” Attorney General Eric Holder said to the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning.
It absolutely does concern us a lot. Particularly seeing as how at least a few thousand guns wouldn’t have “flowed across the Southwest border” if you and your goons hadn’t practically carried them across the border yourselves.
It seems to us that the real solution to this problem isn’t to deny law-abiding U.S. citizens their 2nd Amendment rights but rather to lock you and the entire ATF up in a Supermax and throw away the keys.
In case anybody is still unaware of the true magnitude of this issue, consider this: He and the ATF knowingly supplied illegal, automatic weapons to known murderers in Mexico. If Mexico were to take this as an act of war, they’d be well within their rights. Holder’s actions are no different from, say, Iran supplying weapons to Hezbollah.
There’s a bunch of talk about people calling for Holder’s resignation. His Majesty couldn’t disagree more.
It’s way past the time for a tribunal and a firing squad.
But enough of that. Cain still hasn’t answered whether he upgraded Sharon Bialek’s hotel room or not and it’s driving Ace nuts!
