Mendacem memorem esse oportet
Here is the time line for Fast and Furious, the Obama administration attempt to create a data base of straw purchased guns with no attempt to follow them into Mexico. It started on 10/29/2009 and ended with the press conference announcement of 20 indictments of the straw purchasers on January 19, 2011 (about a month after the murder of border agent Brian Terry). The feds pulled the plug because an American was murdered with one of the 2,000 or so guns they facilitated moving freely into Mexico.
Under oath on May 3, 2011, AG Holder testified that he first heard of Fast and Furious a few weeks before his testimony. Because he is such a liar, he later had to change that to a short time before the President mentioned Fast and Furious by name during an interview on CNN Espanol (March 22, 2011--Transcript here), and perhaps as early as February 2011.
Now Jay Carney, spokesman for the President, is crediting AG Holder with putting an end to Fast and Furious.
Well, hold on there, kitty cat.
If Fast an Furious ended in mid January, 2011 and Holder didn't even learn of it until February, March or April 2011 (take your pick), he necessarily had nothing to do with ending it.
Oh, and the Latin title translates: A liar must be good at remembering. Carney, or any of them involved in this deadly scandal for that matter, ain't so good.
UPDATE: Bill Whittle has a seven minute lecture on the subject that is brutally honest. The logical conclusion he reaches is difficult to evade. Shame on any reporter that doesn't follow the ideology here.
