Watch USAG Eric Holder’s F & F testimony

Quayle calls for special prosecutor

Arizona Congressman Ben Quayle (R-CD3) introduced legislation — HR 532 — last evening formally calling for Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate “Operation Fast and Furious.” The legislation was introduced just hours before Attorney General Eric Holder’s congressional testimony, which can be viewed live streamed here.

Holder is currently testifying before U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the controversial sting operation, which occurred with the knowledge and approval of the Justice Department, and which Holder finally acknowledged was “fundamentally flawed.”  The gun smuggling scandal resulted in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry by Mexican drug cartel members.

Quayle’s formal House Resolution states in part, “It has been more than a year since the tragic death of Brian Terry—a United States Border Patrol agent who was gunned down in the line of duty using a weapon that was part of Operation ‘Fast and Furious.’ Since that time, Attorney General Holder and other Justice Department officials have used the tactics of delay, denial and obfuscation to avoid accountability for this tragically failed operation. Even now, as new evidence comes to light that officials at the most senior levels of the Justice Department were aware of this Operation, Attorney General Holder continues to deny knowledge.”

    Count on this as fact: Just like his boss Barack Obama, if Eric Holder’s lips are moving, you can be certain self-serving, partisan, ass-covering, lies are flying “fast and furiously” out of his mouth.

  2. Kathy says:

    Dems are trying to protect Holder, blaming Phoenix ATF Office. Seems they are trying to assist in the coverup. It seems phone #’s and Fax #’s for F & F investigation have been disconnected, interesting!

    • Teller Of Truth says:

      This LA Times article reports that former U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke falsely told Brian Terry’s family that guns found at the scene weren’t part of the botched Operation Fast and Furious.,0,6431783.story
      The Terry family made their allegations in a “notice of claim” stating that they intend to sue the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Justice Department for $25 million. They rightly called the gun-tracking operation “abominable, reckless, nonsensical.”

      While I agree with your assertion that the Democrats are trying to protect Holder, the Phoenix ATF Office shares in the blame as does the AZ U.S. Attorney’s Office, with Obama and Napolitano appointees at the helm.

      • Kathy says:

        All involved must be held accountable, including Obama, Holder, Napolitano, etc, etc. This is far from over and the coverup is ongoing to this day. It’s not an assertion – I have facts.

  3. Vince says:

    This is a good resource. Read this information from the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
    It lays out the Obama/Holder/Napolitano entire scheme in the most understandable manner. Also, don’t forget that Janet Napolitano was the Bill Clinton appointed US Attorney for the District of Arizona,
    before she was our state’s worst governor.

  4. TeaPartyPatriot says:

    For his criminal actions in the Fast and Furious fiasco, OBOZO’s imbecile AG (and Black Panther Party supporter and defender) holder invokes the Sergeant Schultz defense: “I know nothing – NOTHING!”

    For willfully failing to protect and secure America’s borders and for authorizing the most stupid and ill-conceived operation in American history, Fast and Furious, “the system worked” wrong-way napolitano, “You Lie!” hussein and imbecile AG holder should all be charged as accomplices to murder in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

  5. Jane says:

    Darryl Issa is the man.

  6. Doc says:

    Well, strong work on “Knock th’ HELL outta’ th’ place” Quayle for steppin’ up with HR532.

    Anyone here please correct me if I’m wrong buuut…shouldn’t holder, & ANY of his crew involved, as well as dammit janet, be indicted as accessories to MURDER, in the death of Agent Brian Terry, who’s Family mr. “arrogance personified” holder refused to apologise to.

    …and PULLEEEEZZZEEE let’s not forget who escorted both holder AND dammit janet down th’ aisle…BOTH of our currently sittin’ senators…C’mooon…you know who they are…give ’em a nice round of applause everybody…
