Read Katherine Eban's in-depth and meticulously documented article,
"The Truth about the Fast and Furious Scandal" published June 27 in
Fortune Magazine before going any farther on this.The reality of
the Fast and Furious ATF "scandal" is not remotely what the
conservatives are trying to make you believe.Most telling is the
conservative blogosphere's reaction to Eban's well-researched article.
They hate it, but they can't refute it.
Gee, what ever happened to the "Guns don't kill people. People kill
people." view of guns and their nominal "control"?
Blue,The right would rather be infuriated by falsehoods than content
with the truth.
@ Blue and JoeBlowWhat does "the right" have to do with this
scandal? Nice try at diversion, but it doesn't work. It appears the left
has had the problem with the truth--and more importantly, acknowledging it. It
wasn't "the right" that put the guns into the hands of the cartel.
@mapletonDonactually this whole program started under Bush, but nice try.
Obama's administration supplied those weapons to gangs. It was not Bush
who did it. It was not Santa Claus who did it. It was Obama and his cohorts.
As usual, they point a finger at Bush, whose program was entirely different than
Obama's "fast and furious" program.Those who believe
the lies that Obama is telling and has told will continue to support him in his
lies.People are dead because of the "fast and furious"
program. Terry is dead and many other Americans have been wounded because of
"fast and furious". Those things don't matter to Obama's
supporters. To them, Obama can do no wrong, even when Americans die because of
his actions.Spin it if you wish, but then your lies are part of
Obama's lies and your actions support the actions of Obama. There is nothing in "fast and furious" that is noble. It is just
another program gone wrong - just like every other program that originated with
Obama and the friends of Obama.When things go wrong, they blame
others. They may not hold themselves accountable, but those of us who hate lies
hold them accountable.
Oh please, Mike. If your guy takes office you'll be pumping the next war
within weeks. First, bombing, then invading, then torturing the survivors and
finally wondering why the "terrorists" still left don't seem very
much like mainstream Republicans. "Collateral damage"? Lots of that,
too. And it will all be a "success" because the oil will keep flowing.
That's your idea of full employment.
But Iran Contra made Ollie North and Reagan a Hero to the right. Guess if
your not selling drugs to American too it's just not as heroric.
