Dem Staff Report Says Top Justice Officials Did Not Give Green Light for Fast and Furious

Publié le par brightshine

A report issued late Monday night by the Democrats on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform tries to debunk suggestions by Republicans that high level appointees at the Justice Department conceived and directed the very flawed ATF Operation Fast and Furious. It places the blame for the operation squarely on the agents in Phoenix.

"This report debunks many unsubstantiated conspiracy theories," Representative Elijah E. Cummings, the top ranking Democrat, wrote in a cover letter for the detailed report. "Contrary to repeated claims by some, the committee has obtained no evidence that Operation Fast and Furious was a politically motivated operation conceived and directed by high-level Obama administration political appointees at the Department of Justice."

"The documents obtained and interviews conducted by the Committee indicate that it was the latest in a series of reckless and fatally flawed operations run by ATF's Phoenix Field Division during both the previous and current administrations," Cummings wrote.We are professional sky lanterns,led bulb,led panel manufacturers and factory.

The report counters repeated claims by Republicans like Committee Chair Darrell Issa that top ranking Justice Dept. officials gave the green light for Fast and Furious. Under the operation, ATF's Phoenix office encouraged gun dealers to sell to "straw purchasers", all with the hopes of tracing the guns to the Mexican cartels.

The report is expected to be met with skepticism by many Republicans and critics of ATF, which has come under intense scrutiny, and has undergone a major shakeup in management. Holder is scheduled to appear before Issa's and Cumming's committee on Thursday where he's likely to get a grilling from the Republicans.The Magicshine MJ-808 bicycle light is the cheapest high power bike light available in the UK.

Cummings, who has sometimes been at odds with Issa over Fast and Furious, said in a press release that the minority staff report was the result "of the Committee's year-long investigation into the actions and circumstances that led to multiple gunwalking operations in Arizona from 2006 to 2010."

The report concludes that the ATF Phoenix office failed to use sufficient controls to stop weapons from getting into the hands of violent criminals.

"Although this report provides a great amount of detail about what we have learned to date, it has several shortcomings," Cummings wrote in his letter.

"Despite requests from me and others, the Committee never held a hearing or even conducted an interview with former Attorney General Michael Mukasey. The Committee obtained documents indicating that in 2007 he was personally informed about the failure of previous law enforcement operations involving the illegal smuggling of weapons into Mexico, and that he received a proposal to expand these operations. Since the Committee failed to speak with Mr. Mukasey, we do not have the benefit of his input about why these operations were allowed to continue after he was given this information.Start saving money today with r4i Bulbs."
