Secret Documents on Obama's Arming of Mexican Drug Cartels to be Released
Six years after former Attorney General Eric Holder was ruled to be in contempt of Congress and a suit was filed to enforce a subpoena against Holder in an investigation into Operation Fast and Furious, the U.S. Justice Dept. has finally agreed to release the documents.
The Obama administration had continued a Bush era program of deliberately allowing known gun runners to buy guns in the U.S. that were destined for the drug cartels. They called it Operation Fast and Furious and when one of the guns was used to kill U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, the program was exposed and then vigorously covered up by Obama who fraudulently claimed executive privilege over documents related to the program.
The official excuse given for the program was that the guns would be tracked to the cartel's hideouts. But the feds had provided no way to track the guns. They could have put RFID chips in the guns and hidden sensors along known cartel corridors to aid in tracking them, but they didn't because there was no actual intent to ever track the guns.
Thousands of guns flowed across the border under Fast and Furious and were used to kill thousands or perhaps tens of thousands of people. Most of the guns are still in use and still killing, as intended.
Knowing that there was no legal, moral or logical justification for such a blatant violation of U.S. law, the Obama administration did all it could to sweep the whole thing under the rug of secrecy and not even Congress could get access to records on the operation, until maybe now.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who actually served on the Senate Judiciary Committee while it investigated Operation Fast and Furious, continued to block the release of the same files after he was appointed Attorney General, until now and only with numerous conditions intended to protect the rogue Justice Dept.

Some Americans may wonder how the agency can even continue to call itself the Justice Dept. in light of such egregious and treasonous criminality.
