It is thought by many that the Obama administration ran “Operation Fast and Furious” as a means to end…the end being an excuse to justify stricter gun control laws (for instance, read American Thinker’s The Real ‘Under the Radar’ Target of Operation Fast and Furious).
For the second time in as many days, the actions of the Obama administration have me flashing back to a previous administration. This time it’s the Clinton administration and the standoff and assault on the so-called “Branch Davidian compound” in Waco, Texas.
The initial raid on the “compound” was merely a dog and pony show for public and media consumption…a public relations stunt to garner public support for stricter gun control laws. Congressman Charles Schumer, it was said, had the gun control legislation in hand and was going to introduce it in conjunction with the raid. Needless to say, the Clinton administration’s plan went horribly awry.
Now another Democrat’s scheme to circumvent the Constitution has gone awry. “Operation Fast and Furious” has cost lives. At least one American citizen and countless Mexican citizens have been murdered by weapons supplied by the Obama administration through “Operation Fast and Furious.”
The media, for the most part, is ignoring this story (if it doesn’t matter to Media Matters, it doesn’t matter to the mainstream media). An American citizen being murdered by a Mexican drug lord with a weapon supplied by the Obama administration is not news to left wing outfits like Media Matters…it is collateral damage. You see, the lefties…the progressives, the liberals, the Socialists, etc…are at war with the United States of America. And in war, there are bound to be causalities. The left doesn’t mind a little shooting…so long as the right people get shot.
This story will probably die and be buried in the grave next to the victims of Obama’s “Fast and Furious” operation. God help us all. – Lew –
