Murdered border guards cry for justice from the grave
The head of Homeland Security made it a point at every opportunity to tell America and the southwest border states how safe the borders were. She boasted that the borders were safer than at any time in history – claiming it was because of her. She with Eric Holder and Obama boasted that the numbers of illegal aliens crossing the border were down to unprecedented levels. She, along with Holder and Obama, made it clear that anyone who argued otherwise was doing so for political expedience only.
This is the spin they were weaving even as Operation Fast and Furious was claiming the lives of Mexican citizens in staggering numbers. This was her claim as American border guards were being murdered by rogue high powered assault weapons supplied to drug cartels by the Obama administration, even as they were on a campaign to restrict the Constitutional right of American citizens to own and bear arms.

Here’s my point. Obama, Holder, and Napolitano lied. American citizens along the border aren’t safe. And together they have done everything to ensure the safety of property owners who suffer, the border towns that are overrun by illegals, and most egregiously – they are personally and singularly responsible for the deaths of Americans and 200-plus Mexicans who have been murdered by the illegal weapons they supplied to criminals.
Now Holder and Napolitano sit before Congressional hearings being pressed to tell what they know. The end result of those proceedings is Napolitano contorts her face in rage and contempt, at the very thought that she would be pressed to give truthful accounts of Fast and Furious. Holder, in league with Obama, has moved to change the Freedom of Information Act, to permit government agencies to lie and claim that requested information doesn’t exist even if it does, specifically to prevent the truth of Fast and Furious from being revealed.
And as my late grandmom used to say, if you kick a stone long enough something will crawl from under it. Well, specific to that point, this week we saw Hillary Clinton giving testimony before the same Congressional Committee. Her ability to deny, obfuscate, and dodge questions reminded us of the skill she displayed in protecting her husband from the sexual assault allegations, that should have sent him to jail and had him register as a sexual predator.
My outrage is directed at the way they dismiss the murders of Americans murdered, directly because of the illegal actions they committed. Hillary claimed that she was unaware of any State Department involvement. Well, hell’s bells – isn’t that a safe answer. Napolitano glared and looked even more unpleasant than she does on her best day, and actually tried to verbally intimidate certain Congressmen on the Committee. Holder flat out lied and Obama has yet to fully cooperate with requests.
These people are singularly responsible for the deaths of Americans and Mexicans alike. There is no way, absolutely no way, that low level agents at some podunk border post were going to come up with Fast and Furious on their own, much less come up with it and then set about instituting it with no other agency knowing about it, and without the very heads of the Departments involved signing off on said plan. It just would never happen.
We need an investigative panel with the ability to indict and bind over for trial. The charges against them should include international gun smuggling and conspiracy to commit murder and murder. We need them removed from office and if (read when) found guilty they should receive the harshest penalties available and then they should be handed over to Mexican authorities for criminal proceedings for the people murdered there. And for the rest of their lives, when a crime is committed anywhere in the world with one of the illegal weapons, they should be tried as complicit in the crime.
The families of the murdered border guards should be allowed to sue them for all charges applicable to what has happened. They should see their wealth taken from them and their families left destitute like common criminals. And we need to press congress to ensure that happens. Murdered Americans cry from the grave for justice.
