CNN: Did Operation Fast and Furious Even Happen?

Eric Holder, President Barack Obama, and Congress all have admitted Operation Fast and Furious happened. There are internal emails that talk about it. The scandal right now is that Eric Holder won’t release internal document related to Operation Fast and Furious. Now you have Soledad O’Brien questioning if it even happened at all. No wonder their ratings are so low. The Liberal Left Media are getting so desperate it isn’t funny anymore. I just have to shake my head everyday at the straws they are grabbing at. If only there were straws for them.

According to Breitbart News, the source for the Soledad story, Fortune, flat out lies about the information. According to Chairman Issa Fortune‘s story is complete fantasy as the emails and video surveillance all contradict and rebut this “new found” information.

Chairman Darrell Issa’s press secretary Becca Glover emailed this statement:

Fortune’s story is a fantasy made up almost entirely from the accounts of individuals involved in the reckless tactics that took place in Operation Fast and Furious. It contains factual errors – including the false statement that Chairman Issa has called for Attorney General Holder’s resignation – and multiple distortions. It also hides critical information from readers – including a report in the Wall Street Journal – indicating that its primary sources may be facing criminal charges. Congressional staff gave Fortune Magazine numerous examples of false statements made by the story’s primary source and the magazine did not dispute this information. It did not, however, explain this material to its readers. The one point of agreement the Committee has with this story is its emphasis on the role Justice Department prosecutors, not just ATF agents, played in guns being transferred to drug cartels in Mexico. The allegations made in the story have been examined and rejected by congressional Republicans, Democrats, and the Justice Department.

      Repeat a lie often enough and some will believe it! Ask an old German! Read a paper from the early 40s!

    • Bexarpaw says:

      Good analogy, but there are many people all over the world, in the US and Germany that say it did not happen and that is a sontrived story by FDR and the Jews!  I guess that kind of makes BHO and Eric somewhat like Hitler and Himmler!

      • Bilsmema1 says:

        Ask Vets that fought over there and saw some of the camps. What do you think they will say?

    • paperpushermj says:

      If you live in Poland today you would have to find a Jewish person first, for due to German efforts so many years ago they are now rarer then hens teeth.

  2. The real question should be, ” Did CNN really happen”, after all they are individually and collectively as stupid as stumps..And that’s the truth of it….

  3. Emipres says:

    The truly sad thing is that the President and Holder will walk away from this scott free.  There is no public outcry, only those of us already opposed to BO are looking.  We know that this was an attempt to put pressure on law abiding gun ownership in the US, a poorly thought out attempt to control guns domestically that went terribly wrong resulting in huge amounts of guns ending up in the wrong hands in Mex (like they needed anything else to help and aid in the killings down there) and ended up costing the life of a border agent.  The border agent and the American people are the real losers… Bo and Holder, well they are smiling at a perfect 3 for the week…

    • Bexarpaw says:

      The BO stratedgy is that ……If you throw enough BS against the wall sooner or later some of it will stick!  Mean while as you say the people of the USA are the real losers!  We have become a nation of sheeple and Obama is the hyena to take advangate of that fact!

      • Bilsmema1 says:

        I agree 100%.There are people out there willing to believe anything he tells them,they question nothing and it is sad.

  4. GeorgeB says:

    Leave it to the Communist News Network to come up with a story like that!

  5. Steve Killgo says:

    Thugs, liars, and thieves!

    • Rfh53 says:

      We can also add MURDERERS  to the list. Starting with agent Terry and followed by untold number of Mexicans. Where is the outrage from the Mexicans on this???

      • 13th Floor Looking Out says:

        Don’t you remember…obama’s giving them amnesty for their silence. The moral of this story is don’t leave any stone unturned. 

      • navigato says:

        They have expressed their outrage.  Unfortunately they also want Obama to open the borders, which he has essentially done; so they are discreet in expressing their outrage, lest they rock the boat.

        More Blacks are killing Blacks with stolen guns. Most legal gun owner
        are responsible God fearing owners who respect their Constitutional Right to own a gun. This
        administration panders to the radical racist law breaking individuals, such as,
        The Black Panthers, Acorn, Black Caucus, NAACP, Black commentators, such as
        Sharpton, Jackson, Waters, and De. nut ????, just to name a few. If it wasn’t
        for the 2010 election that gave us a Republican Congress, we would have never
        known about F&F. This admistration was very cockey in believien that by
        implementing F&F would help them to push their agenda on Gun Control. I
        believe a whistle blower came forth because of the Republican Congress, which
        would have never happen if the Dems were in control.The sad death of
        Brian brought all to a forefront. God works in strange ways. Lies, Double talk
        and Propaganda coming out of this administration is a disgrace to the country
        that I love and our Military children’s have given up their lives and limbs, so
        that we can walk free. Now we find out another LIE,from this administration
        regarding Healthcare, “This is not a TAX”! Obama and all of his Socialist
        Democrats must be defeated in 2012. Its time to clean house, starting with the
        White House!.

  6. Boblitfin says:

    Soledad is another Pelosi…..dead to the world

  7. willythegeek says:

    We do know that Obama, Clinton,  and U.N. want our guns. Can anyone say MOTIVE?

  8. Ihatelibs says:

    Love to see these commies killed by those guns

  9. Red55bird says:

    Have we anyone who reads Vision to America tell me if a network like CNN can out right lie to the American people, can we the people file a class action law suite again CNN for deliberately lying to the American people and have so network taken off the air.

    • navigato says:

      Unfortunately they are protected by the First Amendment.  Difficult as it is to believe, lying is protected speech.  And “journalists”, for reasons beyond all understanding, are almost perfectly protected from libel.  Our only recourse is to tune them out, which in the case of CNN, almost everyone is doing, according to their ratings.

  10. Bexarpaw says:

    That is hilarious……some cutsey talking airhead is now thinking about the stuff she purges out to the public each and every day??????

    I find that hard to believe…..whats more she got the story from some other news agency……doesn’t that make it all heresay….I guess if you repeat the BS long enough not only will the public buy it, but you start to believe it yourself!

    • The__Bobster says:

      Soledad O’Brien is Irish, Hispanic, and black. Her father was an Irishman from Australia, and  her mother is described as Afro-Cuban, with enough African ancestry that in the 1950s, when interracial marriage was illegal, they couldn’t legally be married in the State of Maryland.  [Wikipedia, November 5, 2011] However, that may imply only a sixteenth or a thirty-second of actual African ancestry. And Joe Guzzardi noted that many actual black people had trouble with her claim to be black.
      It’s amazing how little African ancestry many successful African-Americans have. Then again, some people would say it’s not amazing at all.

      • BruceD says:

         We also have a a politician who is claiming native american heratige to gain advantages in collage and in politics. No factual basis for this other than her mother.

  11. The__Bobster says:

    It was like a year of Dallas. It was all a bad dream. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

  12. Harry says:

    typical of the clinton news network,when it involves a democrat find one reporter who disagrees with the evidence and report it as gospel

  13. 2War Abn Vet says:

    Think – media coverage of Watergate – then spin 180 degrees.

  14. The__Bobster says:

    On Thursday, O’Brien interviewed Joel Pollak, editor-in-chief of the late Andrew Breitbart’s online empire.

    Breitbart’s BigGovernment. com released a 1991 video of Barack Obama (then a 30-year-old law student) at a Harvard rally embracing radical racialist Derrick Bell and his push for more aggressive race-based hiring at Harvard. Bell is a proponent of critical race theory (CRT), which posits that America remains a hopelessly racist country dominated by Jews and white supremacists.

    O’Brien lost her cool when Pollak shed light on Bell’s fringe legal theories. Acting more like an Obama campaign surrogate than a disinterested host, she angrily jumped on Pollak’s mention of CRT. “That is a complete misreading of critical race theory,” she shrieked. “That’s an actual theory. You could Google it and some would give you a good definition. So that’s not correct

    When viewers took to Twitter to pepper O’Brien with follow-up questions about critical race theory, the CNN star had a twit fit. She invited a liberal professor, Emory University’s Dorothy Brown, on her television show to back her up and then lashed out: “See? That was our critical race theory 101. Stop tweeting me. We have moved on, people.”

    Not so fast, sister.

    Turns out that O’Brien, a Harvard grad, has a rather emotional connection to Bell. As documented at my new Twitter curation/aggregation site Twitchy. com, O’Brien tweeted that it was a “rough day” for her when Bell passed away last fall. She wrote that she had “just started re-reading” one of his books and mourned again: “RIP Prof. Bell.” O’Brien also shared tributes to Bell from fellow Harvard prof and friend of Obama Charles Ogletree. That’s the same Professor Ogletree who bragged that he “hid” the Obama/Bell video during the 2008 campaign.

    O’Brien failed to disclose her pro-Bell bias to viewers before her segments.

    O’Brien also failed to disclose that the liberal prof who denied on her show that critical race theory had aaaaaanything to do with bashing America as a white supremacy-ruled government actually wrote the exact opposite. In one of her own books, Brown asserted that the purpose of CRT was to “highlight the ways in which the law is not neutral and objective, but designed to support White supremacy and the subordination of people of color.” Oops.

    O’Brien is entitled to her opinions, of course. The problem is that she masks her political activism under the banner of corporate media “diversity.” Of multicultural heritage, O’Brien has won countless accolades for her “Black in America” and “Latino in America” documentaries for CNN. The medical school at historically black Morehouse College created the “Soledad O’Brien Freedom’s Voice Award” to honor “outstanding catalysts of social change.” The first recipient of the activist award? Soledad O’Brien, of course.
