A federal judge has ruled on an aspect of Operation Fast and Furious, a gun running scheme that allowed and supported thousands of weapons being sent across the border into Mexico. It appears to be a program developed and administered by the Obama administration, an ironic twist given the president’s strong anti-gun posture, especially in recent weeks. The program was denounced in part because some of the weapons were used against U.S. border patrol agents in which some deaths resulted. Weapons are difficult to access in Mexico, so the program seemed especially cynical and improper.
The program was seen as so corrupt and even illegal that the House of Representatives demanded that the records be turned over detailing the program. Attorney General Eric Holder refused that request and was held in contempt by Congress for that failure. As with so many aspects of wrongdoing in the Obama administration, no penalty was enacted for that demonstration of obstruction of justice. Now a new aspect of the case is being played out, this time by President Obama, and it is truly mind boggling.
