How bad is Gunwalker?
Bad enough that the Iran-Contra comparison I made on Pajamas Media (which I’d shamelessly stolen from a commenter to a previous article) is simultaneously a meme that has become a symbol of Just How Serious the scandal is, and possibly a dramatic understatement of the depths the Obama Administration was willing to go in order to create a call for more gun control laws.
If–and right now, it is only an if–Attorney General Eric Holder lied as Congressman Issa says he did, and Janet Napolitano was part of the Operation as she almost certainly had to be, then it is highly unlikely that this operation went down without the knowledge of the President.
Perhaps more damning, there is a pattern of behavior, documented by his public policy positions, statements, and his prior actions, that strongly suggests that not only was Gunwalker an operation that had the blessing of the President, but it very well could have been a plot hatched in the White House.
My latest post at Pajamas Media is an attempt to walk through the political minefield of gun-related rhetoric from Barack Obama’s swearing in as the 44th President of the United States until the plot was exposed after the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
I confess that I have no direct evidence. That allowed, there seems to be enough circumstantial evidence to warrant the appointment of a special prosecutor to discover if the the Obama Administration is actually guilty of the most damning plot I’ve ever seen to undermine the rights of Americans.
For once, I hope I’m wrong about this administration.
But I wouldn’t bet on it.
