Default Holder Knew about Gunrunner in '09

Holder Bragged About Project Gunrunner in 2009

By Barbara Hollingsworth, 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:

…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."

What!? Obama's Attorney General LIED?! Surely not! Of course he knew about it, and if he didn't he would simply prove he was incompetent. I feel sure that Obama knew about it too (while he was agreeing with the Mexican Presidente that America's "lax gun laws" were the reason that so many US made firearms were making it below the border.

Of course he did - unless he's completely incompetent - and I don't accept that !

Now it remains to be seen if, like a good little Obama soldier, he dives under the bus.....

Sadly, our first black president emerged from a swamp of corruption, and spread its greasy tentacles into our federal govenment at the highest levels. And, properly, he stands to be brought down by his own arrogance and contempt for the laws he swore to uphold by the "little people" of government taking their duty and oaths of office seriously. >MW

I wish someone could come out and provide solid proof that obama knew about gunrunner and supported it. That would make my day.

I posted this, not because I didn't believe Holder knew about Gunrunner, but because this proves it. Of course Maobama know's it, he and Holder are as thick as thieves. We just need proof. Maobama can outslick Slick Willie.

That would be dangerous to have that proof. Your obituary would be blacked out in the news paper.

When the left and I mean far left leaning Authorized Urnalists report that Issa knew about it as did other republicans, they are referring to Fast and Furious and not project gunrunner.

Fast and Furious was put into motion during the Bush administration.
Fast and Furious did not let guns walk or run across the boarder.
Fast and furious caught gunrunners before they crossed the boarders.

During the osamaobama administration the Project Fast and Furious turned into Project Gunrunner where weapons were allowed to make it into the hands of the drug cartels. Knowing that the DEA and BATFE had no authority to interdict in a foreign country the only other explanation was to pad figures to ask and get more gun control at the expense of innocent lives lost on the drug wars.

Project gunrunner has another name "Operation Castaway"

Source claims ATF's Tampa SAC walked guns to Honduras - National gun rights | Examiner.com

Total weapons run across the boarders are really unknown, but some reports indicate around 2500 +/- That the ATF let run to Mexico alone.

If holder did not know anything about Project Gunrunner then he is totally incompetent and needs to be replaced. If he knew about it which I believe he did because he controls the ATF and they don’t do **** unless there is approval from higher up then he needs to share a cell with Bubba for about life without parole.

No doubt Holder knew about Project Gunrunner. He was most likely briefed by the outgoing Bush AG. Project Gunrunner got underway in 2006. The problem is Operation Fast and Furious that began on the watch of Obama and Holder.

Good reporting in the Weekly Standard this morning. This thing is a mess and someone in the executive should be accountable.
