In May of this year, Eric Holder testified before a Congressional committee that he first heard about operation Fast and Furious just a few weeks previous to his testimony. At first he said he wasn’t sure when he heard about it then, upon being pressed told the committee it was just a few weeks ago.
Eric Holder lied.
Documents and emails now show that Holder was aware of the operation which allowed weapons from the U.S. to “walk” into the hands of Mexican drug cartels 10 months before his testimony.
Holder’s exact quote, when pressed was that he had “probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.”
In fact, a memo from the Director of the National Drug Intelligence Center, Michael Walther, informed Holder that straw buyers in Operation Fast and Furious “are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to the Mexican drug trafficking cartels.”
Wow. That seems pretty clear doesn’t it? That memo was dated in July 2010…That’s 10 months before Holder said that he, “probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.”
