Operation Fast and Furious.
In the Marine Corps we are taught that the senior man is always the one responsible no matter what. "You can delegate authority," i.e., by direction signatures but NEVER the responsibility. The Gunny, as a Sergeant, was on one site when one of his Marines on another site screwed the pooch. Guess who got his ass reamed and rightly so. Said the Skipper: "You should have ensured he was better trained to handle his mission." Moreover, a real leader cops to the blame and then applies corrective measures, i.e., "sh*t rolls downhill!"
As a leader, you are "absolutely liable" for the stuff that happens on your watch, period. THAT comes with the job of being the HMFIC. Truman had a sign on his desk that said it all, "The Buck Stops Here." Evidently, Obama has one that says, "It’s all someone else’s fault."
Thus, Obama is culpable for Operation Castaway and Operation Fast and Furious because HE signed HR 1-16 into law. It matters not if he knew or he did not know, he is the C-in-C and the tip of the pyramid, he owns it.
OFFICE OF JUSTICE PROGRAMS
STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTANCE
"For an additional amount for "State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance", $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses" for the ATF Project Gunrunner."
TEN MILLION DOLLARS buys A LOT of guns and strawman buyers.

Now, two more members of this regime, Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton BOTH visited Mexico in March/April of 2009 with the mission to ensure that weapons purchased in the USA were not crossing the border. However, Hillary had a nice little piece in the NY Obama Times wherein she spewed that 90% of the guns in Mexico used by criminals WERE purchased in the USA.
SHE KNEW about this crap as well and was likely in it up to her eyeballs. Now Hillary and Obama are both on board with the UN Small Arms Treaty and Hillary was involved with talks at the UN that would help restrict small arms AND it should be noted that in October 2009, Hillary’s State Department stated that they were against Bush43’s stance on the UN Small Arms Treaty (Bush43 told them to stuff it).
"Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly." Hillary Clinton on the UN Small Arms Treaty
In other words, work the Treaty so Americans cannot buy or sell guns or ammo. Gee, go figure, liberal scumbags trying to force us under UN rule.
Now, as we all know, two plus two STILL equals four and there can be no doubt that Obama, Hillary, and Holder were all involved in this whether knowingly or unknowingly. Obama himself even stated in an interview that his regime wanted to stop the trafficking of firearms from the USA to Mexico!
The real question is WHY can the Gunny come to these conclusions but Congress is still trying to find their balls over it?
Even if they knew nothing about Operations Castaway and Fast and Furious, they are guilty of criminal negligence. If the Gunny leaves a firearm where a kid can get to it, it is loaded, and that kid has an accident that wounds, maims, or kills someone, then the Gunny is guilty of criminal negligence as he should have known better. Obama, Holder, Clinton, and Incompetano are all guilty under this because they should have known that these firearms were going to fall into the wrong hands and shootings were going to occur. Agent Brian Terry was murdered with a firearm obtained under Operation Fast and Furious and thus, they should all be charged for that as well.
The crux of this issue is that there is no accountability or personal responsibility in our government any longer. Bill Clinton gets a little skull in the Oval Office, it is because he was raised by women, or some other bullshit. Hillary Clinton lies like a rug, i.e., "I dodged sniper fire in Bosnia," and Whitewater gets swept under the rug and no one in the media cares. Janet Incompetano issues a report that maligns returning Iraq War vets as possible right-wing terrorists and no one in government raises hell about it. Our society is so dysfunctional BECAUSE no one is held accountable for their actions. Some welfare pig had 15 kids from different men and "someone else" had to take responsibility for it. Meanwhile, the EBT card is filled on time, every month, with other people’s money, and the welfare pig can’t keep her legs closed. And the Left wonders why mainstream America is fed up with the Parasite Class.
A point must be made here on the culpability of the leaders of the Regime and Operation fast and Furious. One, authority allows a person to make decisions without having to seek permission, i.e., the Officer of the Day can call out the Guard Force without calling the Old Man for permission (but you better have a damn good reason). Two, responsibility is being held accountable for that decision(s). The Marine Corps or any organization CANNOT operate without such an arrangement and neither can the DOJ, ATF, or DHS. SOMEONE makes the decision(s) and others act upon it, and in the end, someone owns it. That person is the boss. The boss is the person who focuses the action of a person, persons, group, etc. That would be Obama, Holder, Incompetano, and Hillary as they are the bosses for their respective agencies.
One more point.
Attorney General Eric Holder at the Mexico/United States Arms Trafficking Conference
CUERNAVACA, MEXICO ~ Thursday, April 2, 2009
"Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail."
My My My. Holder knew about it and Incompetano gave the details on it.
They all knew.
In fact, here is Comrade Obowmao claiming that 90% of the guns in Mexico came from the USA! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-St3s6KfPg Three minutes and thirteen seconds of BUSTED!
