Quotes of the day

posted at 8:01 pm on June 23, 2012 by Allahpundit

President Obama may have to clear a high bar in order to lock down Fast and Furious documents from the prying eyes of congressional investigators.

After the White House asserted executive privilege over potentially thousands of documents pertaining to the botched anti-gunrunning operation, critics of the move pointed out that the federal appeals court in the nation’s capital has taken a skeptical view toward privilege claims in the past…

“The privilege,” the court wrote, “disappears altogether when there is any reason to believe government misconduct occurred.”

***

The OCDETF designation enabled Fast and Furious investigators to use wiretaps. This is highly unusual in ATF-run cases — almost all federal wiretapping is done in investigations led by the FBI or the DEA. As noted above, wiretapping requires Main Justice approval. But that’s not all: As I’ve previously outlined, federal wiretap law mandates that the application to the court describe the investigative tactics that have been used in the investigation and explain why those tactics cannot achieve the investigation’s objectives without wiretapping. If the Fast and Furious wiretap applications complied with federal law, they must have described the gunwalking tactic. These applications cannot be submitted to a federal judge until they have been approved by Main Justice; they are submitted to the Department’s Office of Enforcement Operations, which screens them very carefully.

There is little doubt that the wiretap applications would show that senior DOJ officials were aware of the gunwalking tactic long before Agent Terry was gunned down on December 14, 2010. But that’s not the half of it. Bet your bottom dollar that gunwalking was discussed in the consideration of whether to make Fast and Furious an OCDETF case in the first place. OCDETF investigations, moreover, are carefully monitored by the Justice Department throughout, to ensure that the extraordinary flow of funding continues to be worthwhile. I’m wagering that senior DOJ officials — which is to say, Obama-administration political appointees — knew about the gunwalking for close to a year before Agent Terry’s death.

***

Republicans want to know whether top officials at Justice or the White House knew about the gun-walking program, which, although they haven’t turned up evidence of this, would be a reasonable line of inquiry. But casting doubt on their motives are the documents they are demanding: only those since February 2011 — two months after Terry was killed and the program was shut down.

Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) accused Issa of setting up a “kangaroo court” to convict Holder. “If this were a genuine attempt to make sure that the Terry family had closure, we’d have an open investigation,” he said, and call witnesses involved in the program over the past six years. But, Democrats complained, Issa never sought public testimony from people in the Phoenix ATF office who ran the operation, or from the former head of the ATF, who told committee investigators that he never informed Justice Department higher-ups of the operation because he didn’t know about it…

The indignation would sound more genuine if Republicans weren’t going after Holder over what has happened since Terry died.

***

Along with conservative commentators like Rush Limbaugh, Issa suggested as late as April that Fast and Furious may have been part of a policy by the White House to flood the Mexican market with guns to foment violence, which would then put political pressure back on the US to curb its wide-open border gun bazaar and weaken Second Amendment rights…

“Could it be that what they really were thinking of was in fact to use this walking of guns in order to promote an assault weapons ban?” Rep. Issa said. “Many think so. And [the administration] hasn’t come up with an explanation that would cause any of us not to agree.”…

[W]hile the political lines around Fast and Furious are thus clearly drawn, allusions to Watergate-sized conspiracy theories do, at the very least, also help bolster Issa’s central point: If only to quell such theories, Americans deserve to know whether it was really a hapless bureaucratic blunder or whether administration officials lied about the extent of their involvement in what became a deadly scandal.

***

Pity lead House Republican investigator Rep. Darrell Issa of California. It is his misfortune that he isn’t looking into matters about which the Obama administration can talk freely — namely, all its covert national-security programs.

If Justice Department documents that Issa’s committee seeks from Attorney General Eric Holder had been the subject of a top-secret meeting in the White House Situation Room, their contents already would have been splashed across the media. Issa could read the A1 New York Times story and be done with it.

Actually Sharyl Attkisson from CBS has been reporting on Fast and Furious regularly since March 2011. This was her first report.

A couple of weeks ago she received the Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting for the Fast and Furious story.

Flora Duh on June 23, 2012 at 11:38 PM

I see.

And the fact that It turns an ordinarily docile thread into a slugfest among those of us who believe in Conservative values to highlight Liberal absurdity by responding to it??

If that’s the case, then UE owes you for advancing his cause in posting here. Good grief, is this so hard to see?

ManWithNoParty on June 23, 2012 at 11:32 PM

Every ridiculous and serious argument that the slug made was refuted twice or thrice by the good people here, and not without making the reasoned and sound truth come through. Reread the thread and you’ll see that the thing tried to deflect, but in the end generated many more and much better refutations of her side’s talking points than would have otherwise occurred.

Plus, the extra traffic generates some spare change for the site, which is a good thing.

I like the monthly fee that I pay here; I’d hate to see it go up.

Insofar as they know anything about Fast and Furious, it’s something to do with the government tracking the guns of fellows like those Alabama “Segregation Forever” nuts, rather than a means by which hundreds of innocent Rigoberta Menchús south of the border were gunned down with weapons sold to their killers by liberal policymakers of the Obama administration.

brutal.

ted c on June 23, 2012 at 11:46 PM

You guys remember spring 2009? When they all went to Mexico? Remember barky shook hands with someone that had swine flu? That trip is when F&F started. They were all speaking in unison. “90% of the guns come from the US”. Hillary, barky, napolitano, holder, asst. AG, all of them. I believe it was the end of April. Wanna know why Calderone isn’t raising hell? Because he was in on it.

You can look for the pressers. Some probably still exist. I posted some pretty damning ones at the time on another site. Wish I would have captured them better because they are gone now.

In specific, napoliantano and the asst. AG. They laid it all out clearly. F&F is exactly what we suspect it to be. And it started weeks after barky was immaculated…

O/T
Right now I’m watching a propaganda piece on Current TV (yah, that one) , called Vanguard, arming the mexicans or something like that.
The narrative is that guns and ammunitions are readily and easily available in border towns of USA,with no questions asked, no background checks done, and very easy to walk them across the border hidden in backbacks and grocery baskets , because of NRA . The piece shows a ” vietnam vet” who goes with a hidden camera to a gun show and buys a few guns from a private seller, then 2 mexicans speaking spanish in cars with mexican plates approach him to buy the guns with cash. Then the piece shows mexican calderon and Obama blaming USA for mexican violence .
Not one mention of how and why illegals and mexicans are able to walk/drive across in to USA, get guns and take them across the border !
No onder the Yeastinfection troll is so hyped up, the leftist propaganda is mind boggling.

This one used to always get me choked up. I played the grooves off that piece of vinyl.

Actually Sharyl Attkisson from CBS has been reporting on Fast and Furious regularly since March 2011. This was her first report.

A couple of weeks ago she received the Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting for the Fast and Furious story.

Flora Duh on June 23, 2012 at 11:38 PM

Uh, right. I was so excited to see some reporting on this from CBS that I didn’t even look at the date-line. Once I looked at the Gunrunner article, I realized it had to be old, and then I looked. My bad. Btw, that line from Bill Whittle, “Fast and Furious is Watergate with 300 bodies on the ground”, is just awesome. I’m going to sling that around some on FB and watch the lib mouth-frothing begin.

To answer your question E c …Upyerassideways is here to ‘sooock’ on us until he apologizes to Resist…until it does…it can keep it’s mouth full and swallow once in a while…while you guys respond.

KOOLAID2 on June 23, 2012 at 11:53 PM

1) UES did apologize to RWM. Personally, I thought it was a legit apology, but I understand that is for RWM, not me, to decide.

2) You expect others to handle trolls your way, which is rather obnoxious by itself, and it’s made worse by your lack of insight into how different types of trolls operate, imo.

I wonder if the retired horses ever get ridden just for pleasure or is it too big a business?

arnold ziffel on June 24, 2012 at 12:14 AM

It depends. Those that can’t stud (geldings) usually race until they’re up to 8 or 9 years old. Then they are often sent to farms where they are used as outrider horses or just for pleasure riding.

Lava Man became a stable partner of I’ll Have Another and accompanied him during the post parade.

Darn..

I sounded like I attacked you.

Further from the truth.

I get that way..

Electrongod on June 24, 2012 at 12:18 AM

After today’s spectacle…

… I’m done feeding it.

Anyone else with me…?

Seven Percent Solution on June 23, 2012 at 9:49 PM

…I keep telling it to shut up and keep sucking! If it posts 70 times…I’ll tell it to keep it’s mouth full every time…75% of the posts are responses in some form to that dumbazz derail-er…and I’m only on page 3! (:-0)

KOOLAID2 on June 24, 2012 at 12:19 AM

What is most disturbing about this whole sad episode is that almost 100% of the Democrat Media successfully managed to bury this Fake Scandal for 18 months.

Now that they are forced by Reality to “report” it, I think you’ll find more than a few Independent Voters turned off by the whole thing.

The USA is breeding stamina and soundness out of the Thoroughbred lineage. It’s sad.

predator on June 24, 2012 at 12:20 AM

It was a friendly heads-up so you could read earlier comments, my friend…

OmahaConservative on June 24, 2012 at 12:07 AM

Yeah, I saw the headline, that’s what made me suffer through the Maher video and comment on it.

I couldn’t tell if you were being snooty with me or not… no worries.

Del Dolemonte on June 24, 2012 at 12:19 AM

I don’t get people and I can’t stand most of these wishy washy independents.

How could they possibly be “turned off” by the whole thing? Doesn’t anyone want to know the truth and hold our officials accountable for terrible programs that got Brian Terry killed?

You would think that these indies would be able to think for themselves and do their own research to realize that Holder needs to be in jail and Obama rreally deserves to be impeached over this.

If you’re right it sadly seems like they’ll let the lamestream media tell them this is all about politics.

Independents – most informed voters my a$$ !!

LevinFan on June 24, 2012 at 12:26 AM

Pity lead House Republican investigator Rep. Darrell Issa of California. It is his misfortune that he isn’t looking into matters about which the Obama administration can talk freely — namely, all its covert national-security programs.

LOL- That Rich Lowry can be a funny guy.
