Fast and Furious Mayhem Spreads; Bureaucrats Involved Are Promoted

The havoc spawned by the Obama Regime’s Mexican gunrunning operation continues to spread:

Firearms from the ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious weapons trafficking investigation turned up at the scenes of at least 11 violent crimes in the U.S., as well as at a Border Patrol agent’s slaying in southern Arizona last year, the Justice Department has acknowledged to Congress.

The department did not provide details about the crimes. But The Times has learned that they occurred in several Arizona cities, including Phoenix, where Fast and Furious was managed, as well as in El Paso, where a total of 42 weapons from the operation were seized at two crime scenes.

So far 57 of the 1,418 weapons deliberately provided to Mexican criminals by our rogue government have turned up at American crime scenes. The taxpayer-financed bloodshed across the border is presumably even worse.

At least the mayhem hasn’t harmed the careers of the bureaucrats involved:

The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives promoted three key supervisors of Operation Fast and Furious who came under fire for pushing the program even after it clearly spiraled out of control.

The three supervisors — William Newell and David Voth, both field supervisors who managed the program out of the agency’s Phoenix office, and William McMahon, who was the ATF’s deputy director of operations in the West — are being transferred to Washington for new management positions at the agency’s headquarters, the newspaper reported.

However, the person ultimately responsible for the gunrunning operation will not be promoted, because he is already president of the USA.

No more promotions for the Gunrunner in Chief.

    This happened because of Al Gore’s invention just like it’s the reason for unemployment: http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2011/08/17/obama-blames-internet-high-unemployment

    You didn’t really expect NWO change-agents to be punished, did you? Have you learned nothing from Waco? From Chinagate? New Black Pansy Poll “watchers?” Nationalization of the healthcare industry? Willful violation of bankruptcy law to nationalize half of the automotive industry?

    We need the National Guard on the border immediately. The cartels are too well armed and trained.

    …registered Republican Ben Bernanke printing the dollar into oblivion.

    …Republican president George Bush telling us we must abandon capitalism to save it.

    The battle is no longer Democrats vs. Republicans.

    The battle is Big Government vs. We the People.

    Recycled career politicians and special interest whores all must be voted out regardless of the letter after their name.

    I don’t expect them to be punished because they’re merely one side of the same coin. Only if we the people take back control of the government can we expect these wrongdoers to be held accountable.

    The single party of Big Government won’t do it.

    Bipartisan change agents.

  5. GoY says:

    But even though George W. Bush was personally responsible for every bad thing that happened while he was president, Barack Obama is in no way responsible whatsoever for this program undertaken by his political appointees in direct pursuit of his policy goals.

    So say the libs

    Forgot the deliberate facilitation of alien invasion. That’s pure NWO-ism doctrine.

    What other kind of skulldugery can we ever expect from Obama and his fellow villians but this

    The masks are off, but too many people either (a) are still asleep or (b) just don’t want to look.

    These thugs STILL feel like “It’s OK, we’ll just cover it up or change the subject or yell “RACIST” or something. No problem. They’ll never be able to touch us.”

    I bet that’s how King Louie felt, too.

  9. Wyatt's Torch says:

    I should add for those progressives who’ve never read, you know, like ACTUAL history:

    It did not end well for King Louie.

  10. The Watcher says:

    ‘are being transferred to Washington for new management positions at the agency’s headquarters, the newspaper reported.’ To, perhaps, shelter and shield them from questioning?

  11. Joe says:

    Smells like hush money to me.
    “You just keep this to yourself and this big corner office with a view and a raise will be yours”.
    Prison for the whole crooked bunch, including odumbass.

    If a grade school child makes a ‘gun shape’ with his fingers he is expelled from school and he and his parents must attend years of liberal counciling and register as terrorists.

    Yet the N.I.C. makes one any time it wants. What a WONDERFUL example the NIC is for the (black) children, huh? Just freaking WONDERFUL.

    What a GD loser the stupid liberals elected. May they all rot in hell.

  13. Wyatt's Torch says:

    From Maxine Waters today, speaking to a Detroit townhall meeting today:

    “If we go after the president too hard, you’re going after us,” Waters said. “When you tell us it’s all right and you unleash us, we’re ready.”

    They eat their own.

    Obama is through.

    My first sentence above was approved by the newly created Department of Redundancy Department (part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.)

  15. Bob Roberts says:

    As some seem to understand, it’s not just the left we need to go after – there are plenty who claim to be “conservative” who need to get the boot as well. But we need to be careful we don’t boot them out to be replaced by someone worse, whether Democrat or supposed Republican.

    It’s not the party with whom they claim to be affiliated that matters – it is not what they tell us during campaigns that is the key. What matters, what is the key, is WHAT THEY DO IN OFFICE.

    We need to stop this insane spending – no more debt limit increases – in fact it needs to be forced downward each year from now on until it is zero and it needs to be clamped there.

    No more calling last year’s budget plus some percentage the “baseline” and calling any reduction from this starting point a “cut” – time to actually start real reductions.

    Time to reform entitlement programs, which were scams from the start anyway.

    Time to repeal Obamacare. Past time, actually.

    Was that today? Just askin’

    Last week , for as it happens gun-walking updates watch the Codrea and Sipsey Street blogs . The Woodward and Bernstein of Gunwalker .

  18. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Our next leader (assuming the Marxist maniac is thrown out) is going to have a packed house of moles in all these bureaucratic positions of influence, ready to inflict maximum chaos.
    Tell you what. If I was in charge of sorting it all out, I would simply bar the front doors open , then head all the way around to the back of Washington DC, toting the worlds most powerful CATTLE PROD.
    Yee haw, time to clean some house.

    Hush money and a watchful eye.
