Exclamation "Fast & Furious" Hearings Raise More Questions Than Answers

NRA-ILA GRASSROOTS ALERT
Vol. 18, No. 31 07/29/11


"Fast & Furious" Hearings Raise More Questions Than Answers

The more information that comes out about the reckless "Fast and Furious" gun running operation conducted by the Phoenix BATFE office, the more clear it seems that knowledge of the operation, and approval for it, went a lot higher than the Phoenix field office, or even the BATFE.

There is now clear evidence, uncovered by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee headed by Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that senior Obama Administration officials were aware of this disastrous operation.

Last Tuesday, Rep. Issa conducted another round of hearings. Among those who testified were William Newell and William McMahon, BATFE Special Agents who oversaw the program in Phoenix. Those hearings revealed that senior Dept. of Justice officials, including former Deputy Attorney General David Ogden and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, knew about the program.

Are we as Americans going to let this get swept under the carpet?

Dave Workman with the Seattle Examiner is knee deep in the F&F and Gunrunner reporting and has been since it broke (before the big news even knew about it).

His entire F&F portfolio is HERE

I certainly hope that this F&F fiasco doesn't get swept away. However, if you and I let our congressmen off the hook, it will. Write, call, fax, donate time/money to organizations that will fight the good fight. I don't like what is happening in our country; I don't like the Chicago crooks that have become the mainstay of the Obama administration. I'm going to do the very best I can to see he is not re-elected. As a retired teacher I don't have a lot of money, but I've already donated a couple of hundred $$ to NAGR and NRA.

But you do have a vote. Use it wisely.

A Border Patrol agent was killed with one of the purchased rifles.
Don't let the ignorant people that allowed it to happen get away.

Exclamation Holder Has to Go!

Holder Has to Go!
Dear JAMES,

I'm sending you this e-mail after just returning from Capitol Hill and the hearings investigating the crimes committed during BATFE's Operation "Fast and Furious."

Attorney General Eric Holder is stonewalling all efforts to get to the truth.

His minions have directed Federal employees with knowledge about this illegal gun pipeline to the Mexican cartels to refuse to cooperate with Congressional investigators.

I've said all along that Holder is either lying or he's incompetent, and that either way, he can't be trusted with the powers of his office or the sanctity of our freedoms. That's why I wrote you and asked you to sign NRA's Petition to Fire Eric Holder.

LOOK>>>https://www.nra.org/fireholder/petit...82&ek=Y1GV249N

In Congress, the anti-gunners are cynically pointing to the Fast and Furious scandal and saying that if gun control laws were stronger, then the Obama Administration and BATFE would never have needed to break the law!!!

Using this twisted logic, they're calling for reviving the Clinton gun bans, outlawing gun shows, restricting "ammunition clips," rationing the number of guns you can buy, and requiring the registration of long gun sales.

So now, NRA has two battles on our hands... A battle to tell the American people the truth about Operation Fast and Furious, and a battle to fight off these new legislative assaults on our freedoms.

The Administration's refusal to fully cooperate with Congressional oversight is a true Constitutional crisis. If NRA members don't fight this battle and restore respect for accountability and the rule of law, no one else will.

Thank you for signing NRA's Petition to Fire Eric Holder. Thank you for your generous contribution. Thank you for standing with NRA during America's -- and Freedom's -- time of need.

Yours in Liberty,
Wayne LaPierre
Executive Vice President
