This is not new news since Michelle Malkin wrote about the stimulus bill angle with the ATF’s Fast & Furious/Gunrunner program on March 30, but it’s worth a re-post to highlight the fact it was important enough for someone to include it in the Feb. 2009 Stimulus bill.
Buried in Barack Obama’s failed trillion-dollar stimulus program was a $10 million bloody border racket that has now cost American lives. This goes far beyond the usual waste, fraud and abuse underwritten by progressive profligacy. It’s bloodstained government malfeasance overseen by anti-gun ideologues — and now anti-gun ideologue Attorney General Eric Holder will “investigate.”
Welcome to Project Gunrunner. Prepare for another Justice Department whitewash.
Hat tip to AP who highlighted this fact last night, and reminder … the stimulus boondoggle was approved by all but seven Democrats in Congress, and only three Republicans voted for it. My guess is not one of them even questioned what gunrunner was or what it did.
You have to wait for it to pass to see what’s in it don’t you know?
Below is a screen capture from the Stimulus Bill (H.R. 1 in 2009), but you have to ask the question… is this a bigger “scandal” than …
- Clinton’s blue dress incident and his lying in court?
- Halliburton during the Bush 43?
- Abu Ghraib?
- Valerie Plame “outing” by a GOP insider who never outed her?
- Filegate – the Clinton administration’s efforts to store FBI files “for later reference?”
- Newt Gingrich’s financial improprieties?
- The Keating Five?
