'Fast & Furious': We the People Must End the Cover-up

I have been posting several stories and videos about 'Fast & Furious' because I am furious about what our government has done. The Obama administration allowed over 2,000 guns to walk across our southern border and because of that hundreds of people have been murdered with those guns.

Most of you know that US Border Agent Brian Terry was murdered but so was ICE Agent Jaime Zapata and we rarely hear anything about his murder. Three days ago, his family filed a wrongful death claim against the US government. You can read that story here.

Congressman Darrell Issa is being demonized because he is trying to expose the role our government had in this operation and the murders that took place. This is not a witch hunt. Members of the Obama administration enabled crimes to be committed and lives to be ended and no one has been held accountable. President Obama has claimed executive privilege to make sure the evidence Congressman Issa seeks will never see the light of day. Issa seeks justice and the Obama administration seeks to keep the evidence hidden.

Where is the media? To my knowledge there has been one reporter who has been tenacious at seeking the truth and that is Sharyl Attkisson. Where are the investigative reporters of the past that would not rest until they had all of the details of a cover up? Well, those reporters were investigating a Republican President, not a Democrat.

Fast & Furious should not be a partisan issue but the Democrats are trying to make you believe it is. Every American around the world should be angry about what our government has done. Where is the outrage? Where is the public outcry for justice for US Border Agent Brian Terry? ICE Agent Jaime Zapata? Are the deaths of these two Federal Agents meaningless? They should not be! Are the murders of several hundred Mexicans meaningless? They should not be!

Please, call Congressman Darrell Issa's office and encourage him to keep pressing Attorney General Eric Holder for answers and to keep digging in the cesspool that used to be the Department of Justice. Also, call your United States Senator and ask why the Senate is not investigating the US Government's complicity in the murders of hundreds of people.

We the People need to turn up the heat because it is quite obvious the press is not going to. Congressman Issa and CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson can no longer do this alone. They need our help.
