Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) has damning evidence that US ATF officials sanctioned or allowed the sale of assault weapons to straw purchasers. The agency was doing this on purpose. The government encouraged this. Two of the weapons ended up at the murder scene of a US border patrol agent in Arizona, Brian Terry. Obama says he and Holder knew nothing about Operation Gunrunner.
Senator Grassley spoke out on his investigation yesterday on the floor of the senate.
This is an amazing video.
Between 1,300 and 1,700 guns got away and that’s just what has turned up so far. Several of the guns have been connected to criminal acts. Obama’s failed stimulus plan helped fund the program.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Devastating e-mail exchanges between a senior official with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Phoenix, AZ and a cooperating gun shop operator have been revealed by Senator Charles Grassley in a letter sent late yesterday to Attorney General Eric Holder.
“In light of this new evidence,” Grassley tells Holder, “the Justice Department’s claim that the ATF never knowingly sanctioned or allowed the sale of assault weapons to straw purchasers is simply not credible.”
Grassley’s press release can be viewed here.
CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson is reporting that the information contained in the e-mails is “damning.”
The e-mail exchange is with David Voth, group supervisor for ATF’s Phoenix Group VII. Voth is the agent who infamously sent an e-mail to other ATF agents, goading them into participating in the Gunrunner project without question, or to find a different job.
ATF Agent/Whistleblower John Dodson exposes “Operation Gunrunner” on CBS News.
Obama denies any knowledge of ATF gun-running operation.
Before “Operation Gunrunner” is exposed, both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are all too quick to blame the US citizenry for Mexico’s drug-gang violence.
Obama calls for an international anti-gun treaty.
A Fox News investigation disproves Democrats’ claims that 90 percent of firearms used in Mexican drug crimes come from the U.S., citing evidence that the true number is closer to 17 percent.
