BUSTED: Eric Holder Lying….. Gave Speech About Fast and Furious in 2009 and Video of DOJ Announcing Project “Gunrunner” aka “Fast and Furious”

Anthony Weiner spotted saying “tsk, tsk”….. Washington Examiner – On May 3, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder testified before House  Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa’s committee that  he only learned about the government’s sale of weapons to Mexican drug  cartels “in the last few weeks.”

But Big Government found a 2009 speech by Holder on the Department of Justice’s own  website that proves the attorney general was well aware of Operation  Gunrunner  back in 2009:

The problem with Holder’s feigned ignorance is that he gave a speech  in Cuernavaca, Mexico, on April 2, 2009, in which he boasted about  Operation ‘Gunrunner” and told Mexican authorities of everything he was  doing to insure its success.

When questioned by the media, Holder also denied knowing anything about Gunrunner:

Holder’s office at first vehemently denied ATF has ever knowingly  allowed weapons to get into the hands of suspected gunrunners for  Mexico’s drug cartels,” CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl  Attkisson reported.

But at the arms trafficking conference in Cuernavaca, Holder not only acknowledged the program, he bragged that he was in the process of expanding it:

“Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break  the backs of the cartels.  My department is committing 100 new ATF  personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our  ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the  border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a  new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion.  DHS is  making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail.”

So Holder’s May 3rd denial appears to be refuted by his own words.  (read more)

  1. I think that when these idiots take a federal job that they should be sworn under oath to not tell a lie. That way they can go to jail for perjury just like ather liars are. After all WTF is the problem or is it that everyone lies so much they can’t remember how to tell the truth anymore. Aren’t we suppose to trust our politicians?
