A simple thought struck me this morning about Operation Fast and Furious and the obvious perjury of Attorney General Eric Holder.
I can confirm that career DOJ employees know for a fact that Operation Fast and Furious was not a “botched” law enforcement operation, any more than felony battery is a botched fist control operation. They know felonies were committed by Eric Holder and other political appointees of Barack Obama within the Department of Justice, and that elements of Homeland Security, State, and Treasury were also involved in the conspiracy.
This is hardly a secret, though the heresy of LEOs becoming criminals simply isn’t talked about openly due to a “no snitching” culture that has infected the DOJ every bit as insidious as what we see in crime-riddled urban areas.
It is a mark of shame that more than 18 months after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down by Fast and Furious weapons, federal LEOS and lawyers of the Department of Justice have no rebelled openly against the criminality of Operation Fast and Furious, the 302+ dead that were the result of the crime spree, and the cover-up and retaliation that has followed.
There are patriots within federal law enforcement. There are men and women that have taken solemn oaths, and who will risk their lives to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. If they are willing to risk their lives, would they not consider risking their careers by protesting against their criminal leadership? Or is it too much to ask them to make such a potential sacrifice to force justice in the names of hundreds of murder victims?
A public protest against Eric Holder and DOJ political officials would shock the American public out of their stasis, and force the media to acknowledge that Fast and Furious isn’t a political witch hunt, but a deadly criminal scandal that shocks the soul of even experienced apolitical law enforcement agents that love this Republic more than any particular Administration.
Justice is worth fighting for. But is Justice willing to demand it?
