Investigators: Operation Fast And Furious Was Product Of "Deliberate" Obama Administration Strategy

According to The Daily Caller, congressional investigators have concluded that Operation "Fast and Furious" was "a product of DOJ ‘deliberate strategy’ laid out by" Attorney General "Eric Holder" and "other senior Obama officials." In their latest report, they "found that the gunwalking-program-turned-scandal was the result of a 'deliberate strategy created at the highest levels of the Justice Department.'" In Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama administration sent guns to Mexican drug cartels, providing weapons "tied to even more murders than previously thought — including a massacre of teens and young adults" that resulted in “blood flowing in the streets."

Although Operation Fast and Furious occurred entirely under the Obama administration, President Obama has falsely claimed that it began “under the previous administration.” In reality, as ABC’s Jack Tapper and others have noted, “Fast & Furious started in the fall of 2009, 9 months after President Obama was sworn in.” Fast and Furious is not the only scandal in the Obama Justice Department, which has also been plagued by rampant politicizationpartisan hiring at the expense of merit, ideologically motivated attacks on free speech, and discriminatory refusals to protect voting rights.
