Read some of the comments under the article I posted. Some of those people are making some very good points. If the scope of this thing is as big as it's starting to look, Obama & Holder are directly responsible not just for a cover up, but for mass murder. This shit is going to get very interesting.
The case is older than the conspiracy theorists. Townhall's editor wrote an excellent book that details the whole series of events.
The story initially came from an ATF watchsite where anonymous sources tipped off the posters there. Eventually a whistleblower came forth. It was very inconvenient at the time because Holder was getting a lot of traction in favor of gun control.
I can't help thinking about wtf goes on we DON'T know about. They can justify almost any kind of bullshit. I really try not to be a conspiracy nut, but if you don't think there's shenanigans going on, you're very naive. Hate to say it but it goes beyond party affiliations too.
MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other left-leaning news organizations have tried to minimize the scandal as much as possible, claiming it was “botched” instead of an operation designed to require Mexican fatalities. These and similar news media sought to provide Holder with political cover by noting how many times he’s appeared before the Oversight committee, while avoiding mentioning that he never provided the documentation Congress requested. Also neglected: the fact that Holder refused to fire a single soul involved.
