Katie Pavlich on Obama’s Lies and Cover-up of Fast and Furious

By Roger Aronoff

Katie Pavlich, who literally wrote the book on Operation Fast and Furious, delivered a very timely talk to the Accuracy in Media “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth” conference on September 21st. It was the day after the Justice Department’s Inspector General issued a report on the scandalous gun walking operation that resulted in the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, plus hundreds of Mexicans. She points out that it was mainly blogs that broke this story, but that Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, who AIM honored this year with a Reed Irvine Award, had done an “amazing” job covering the story.

Pavlich, who is the news editor for Townhall.com, said that the President lied about the origins of Fast and Furious. “You had President Obama go on Univision,” she told the crowd, “which was interesting, because Jorge Ramos, who has asked about President Obama’s involvement in Fast and Furious in the past, did the job that the regular mainstream media in America won’t do and asked him some tough questions about Fast and Furious. In particular, ‘Don’t you think that Eric Holder should be fired, whether he knew about this or not, whether it’s incompetence or he lied about his involvement?’ And then President Obama lied. He straight up lied on Univision and said that Operation Fast and Furious was a Bush administration program. Well, considering Fast and Furious started in September and October 2009, long after President Bush left the office, it’s not a Bush administration program.”

Fast and Furious is back in the news this week, as Univision, a Spanish language network, partnered with ABC News, filed a devastating report showing some of the tragic consequences of this operation which sent some 2,000 guns into the hands of Mexico’s notorious drug cartels. The report, which appeared on the ABC News website, but did not air on their evening news shows, said, “As part of Operation Fast and Furious, ATF allowed 1,961 guns to ‘walk’ out of the U.S. in an effort to identify the high profile cartel leaders who received them. The agency eventually lost track of the weapons, and they often ended up in the hands of Mexican hit men, including those who ordered and carried out the attack on Salvarcar and El Aliviane, a rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez where 18 young men were killed on September 2, 2009.”

This AIM conference where Pavlich spoke was the same conference wherePatrick Caddell said that the media have become “the “enemy of the American people.”

    Again, we see the sitting Prez of the USA caught up in lies and distortion of the facts. He is a marxist / socialist / communist and needs to be on the next freight train back to Chi-cago; along with all his thug-buddies. That should lighten Washington of some of the excess liars and frauds that are on the American taxpayer dole.

      Community organizers use hate, envy, greed and the denial of sloth and lust to motivate followers. No follower is ever going to ask the CO to prove any of his statements, and you can see the result when a CO becomes president. He assumes he is still preaching to the “faithful”.

    I still think we should arm Obama’s secret service protection agents with the same bean bag guns he insists our Border Patrol agents use against illegal drug smuggling immigrants. But that would be like asking Liberal Congressmen and Supreme Court Justices to have the same Medical coverage they gave US under Obamacare.

    I can’t even watch the debate tonight because I go crazy every time Obama lies and then is not questioned about the accuracy of his comment. You can tell he is lieing because his lips are moving. He would destroy his campaign if he told the truth.

      Stopspending: Just like ole Biteme when he came out with the truth that the Ozero regime had ‘buried the middle class for the last four years’. Just leave it up to ole Joe to spit out the truth and then go into frenzy mode to ‘clarify’ his comments.

      billwv, it’s like I’ve said before – Obama’s best life insurance policy is Biden. :)

    I recall the many senate hearings lead by Chuck Schumer(D-NY), against Attorney General Albert Gonzales. Those hearings were nothing more than a politically motivated witch hunt, a sham by any standard. The Inspector General ultimately found no intentional or criminal wrongdoing by Gonzales in the firing of department attorneys. However, Gonzales did eventually resign because he had become a distraction to the Bush Administration. I think AG Eric Holder needs to do the same.

    Congress needs to subpoena the Politburo Czars who helped to create this F&F disaster, with all their notes, before they can be destroyed. Executive Privilege be damned! It’s just another form of cover-up by this ‘transparent’ Administration.
