Obama Knew About Gun Walking Program in 2009 – Used “Fast & Furious” To Make Case For Gun Regulations (Video)

Barack Obama knew about the gun walking program in March 2009.
The Right Scoop reported:
In April 2009 Barack Obama traveled to Mexico and blamed US gun sellers for violence south of the border. Obama told his Mexican audience, “This war being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States.” Just to be sure, a few months later the Obama Administration started running their own guns to Mexico, at least 2,000 guns.
Barack Obama, April 16, 2009:
“This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States… more than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well.”
There is also proof that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives discussed using “Fast and Furious” to push for new regulations on gun sales.
Yesterday the Obama White House refused to turn over documents on the Fast and Furious gun walking program.
Obama told issa to kiss his ass
who would have then expected the faux outrage from the reich wing as a result [/s]
This other thing is silly nonsense. Yes, someone was killed, maybe by a gun that was part of the sting, but his death was in no way related to the ATF actions.... and the rest of this is political theatre of the highest order. It is a head fake from scrutiny that the ReCons have zero idea how to fix the economy.
If you think this is vastly more serious that Watergate, me thinks your moral compass needs realignment.

There were two weapons found at the murder scene of Agent Terry. According to the FBI report they could not determine absolutely "which" firearm fired the bullet that killed him because the bullet had fragmented on impact; they could only determine a partial match.
The report did not refer to "what" firearm killed him, but rather "which" firearm. The two firearms found at the murder scene were the firearms that were forensically tested to determine if either was used to shoot Agent Terry.
Therefore the FBI report distinctly refers to the firearm that killed Agent Terry as being at the murder scene. They just couldn't determine absolutely "which one."
Additionally, the article also reports how the ATF misrepresents the FBI report. More creative denial, just like some here at DP perpetuate.FBI report at odds with ATF claim on weapons
A copy of the FBI document shows ballistics tests did not rule out the Fast and Furious guns in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry.

Reporting from Washington — The claim by senior ATF officials that none of the weapons lost in the botched Fast and Furious sting operation were used in the shooting of a Border Patrol agent is not supported by FBI ballistics tests, according to a copy of the FBI report on the shooting.

Last week, spokesmen Scot Thomasson and Drew Wade of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told The Times that the FBI had assured them that neither of the two Fast and Furious weapons found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry's death were the ones that killed the agent.
"We're not aware of any forensic evidence that would link these guns to the homicide," they said.
A copy of the FBI report obtained by The Times' Washington bureau shows ballistics tests did not rule out the Fast and Furious guns.
Experts went to work on tests on Dec. 17, three days after Terry was killed, FBI records show. On Dec. 23, the FBI's "Report of Examination" said the fatal bullet came from a semiautomatic rifle, but that "due to a lack of sufficient agreement in the individual microscopic marks of value" on the weapons, "it could not be determined" which gun fired it.
Several high level officials went to jail over Watergate, Nixon lost his job. Hopefully, the pattern will continue.
As for your assertion that a petty breakin in an office building compares to a botched program where 200 people were killed. I would have to disagree.
Watergate was one side trying to get intel on the other side, which is happening right now by both Obama's and Romney's campaign at this very moment. Nixon was paranoid, and stepped way over a line and got busted for it, but it wasn't out of the ordinary before or since. Hypocrisy at its finest.
