I posted previously concerning a video that appeared to suggest that both Obama and Holder knew about “Fast and Furious” from the beginning. I recieved an email a little while ago which directed my attention to the site I had used as the original source for the video, The Right Scoop. I had forgotten where I found it when I posted it last night because I had deleted the email that contained the original link.
I had asked my friend to re-send the original link, and this was what I found when I clicked on it:
Proof Obama and Holder knew about gun walking in 2009? Unfortunately, NO.

My video is wrong and I apologize for that. What Ogden and Napolitano in my video were referring to was gun-running, not gun-walking. I mistakenly conflated the two of them. Gun-Walking to be clear is the weapons we allowed into Mexico that were never traced – the 2k weapons that turned up into the hands of the Cartel, one of which was used in Brian Terry’s death.
While I’m sure that the announcement in March 2009 was likely the beginning of Fast and Furious under the guise of Project GunRunner, this video below doesn’t prove that and thus I have deleted it.
I’ll try harder to not conflate these two in the future.
This is something I put together from a March 2009 press conference where gun walking/tracing was announced not only as an issue very important to the president, but directed by the president in conjunction with Attorney General Eric Holder:
Now we know why Obama issued executive privilege this morning to keep Holder from having to release documents about Fast and Furious.
I guess in my zeal to see the Chicago Jesus and his lackey Eric the withHolder hauled off in handcuffs, tried, and then crucified by a federal court, I was not as vigilant as I should have been.
I know in my mind that this idiotic operation was instigated by both Obama and Holder, but proving it is another matter.
Sadly, that video just was not the smoking gun I had first thought.
