WASHINGTON, DC – NOVEMBER 08: U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder arrives at the witness table to testify during a Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing about the controversial the ‘Operation Fast and Furious’ gun running program on Capitol Hill, on November 8, 2011 in Washington, DC. ‘Operation Fast and Furious’ was set up to be a sting set up by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that allowed weapons to be purchased from Arizona gun shops by Mexican drug cartels to trace cross boarder gun trafficking.

So it appears things are coming to a head over Fast and Furious on Capitol Hill. About an hour ago the Washington Post breaks the news that the Justice Department has made an announcement that the Obama Administration has claimed executive privilege concerning Operation Fast and Furious. This means that the Obama Administration, Department of Justice included, will no longer turn over ANY information to the Congress Richard Nixon style.

This is a huge development in this case, this opens the door to asking questions about how much the President knew and when he knew it. Then when you look at the President’s comments to anti-gun activist Sarah Brady one is able to make a rational connection and identify the Obama master plan which is rule by executive fiat (or executive orders if you must):

“I just want you to know that we are working on it….We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

It is pure speculation on my part that his statements could be connected to his direct knowledge of Fast and Furious. Having said that I do believe somethings are what they look like. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it’s properly safe to say one is looking at a duck to put it simply. The only problem facing the Obama Administration now is that both Fast and Furious and the President’s possible knowledge thereof is no longer, “under the radar.”
