According to my confidential sources the manner in which the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) deals with confiscated weapons associated with the commission of a drug crime has changed. Formerly, when the DEA would execute a drug bust and seize weapons, they would simply destroy the guns, unless the guns were to be used as evidence in an upcoming trial. In such cases, guns would be destroyed when they had outlived their evidentiary usefulness. Then came along Mr. Fast and Furious, Eric Holder who has ordered that all guns seized by any Federal agency, including the DEA, must be turned over to the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Some of you who know your history already know where this is going.

Those Who Do Not Remember Their History Are Doomed to Repeat It

The ATF and Eric Holder were implicated “nine times Sunday” for their role in shipping guns from the United States into Mexico which ended up in the hands of the drug cartels. Holder refused to cooperate with a Congressional investigation and was held in Contempt of Congress. Unfortunately, Congress did not have the courage to impeach, convict and remove Eric Holder from his Attorney General position. Congress failed to launch a subsequent investigation which would and should have looked for presidential complicity in Fast and Furious as well.

There were some ATF officials who were turned into sacrificial lambs and were subsequently fired for their role in Fast and Furious. The body count should have continued to mount until the evidence trail from “All the President’s Men” should have landed squarely on the desk of the Oval Office as it did with Richard Nixon and Watergate. However, since true investigative journalism is all but dead in this country, the evidence trail grew cold as Congress cowered in the corner. Where was Trey Gowdy? Were was Darryl Issa? Where was anybody who was elected to protect and to serve the people, when justice was not ultimately served?

Holder Should Be In Prison but….
