Often when complex news stories emerge, whether a political scandal or some terrible attack on innocent civilians, the public asks the question “why,” while the news media focuses only on the “what.” The intent of Fast and Furious has never been overtly revealed but it looks as if the Administration, through the Department of Justice (DOJ), was attempting to manufacture a “crisis” that would be used to justify restrictions on the Second Amendment, such as reinstituting the assault weapons ban. At this point in time it is difficult to know since executive privilege was invoked to prevent Congress from obtaining the 80,000 documents concerning Operation Fast and Furious. The only logical conclusion that can be deduced from what we do know is that the facts fit two possible theories. The first is that the administration was directing federal law enforcement agencies to accomplish a political objective, or the other is that there was gross incompetence and malfeasance on the part of the upper echelon of the DOJ. The fact that two border patrol agents, and an unknown number of Mexican Nationals have been killed by these guns, seems irrelevant in the eyes of the Administration. This type of dismissive attitude was recently revealed when the deaths of the four Americans in Benghazi was characterized as “not optimal.”
While some in the American Media have focused on e-mails from the Department of State and other electronic traffic to the White House, there may also be e-mails to the DOJ in the Benghazi incident. There is a pattern here that suggest that there were e-mail exchanges from the White House to DOJ, and not just because the FBI was tasked to investigate.
In July of 2012, DOJ testified before Congress, or more accurately, refused to testify, whether there were any plans to criminalize speech against religions; this is the same month that a cheesy video, lampooning the Prophet Mohammad, was posted on the internet. When the attack on Benghazi occurred three months later, the Administration sent Ambassador Rice and Secretary Clinton to sell a story to the public that the video was the cause of a spontaneous demonstration that became lethal. The possibility exists that this “crisis” was going to be used to impose restrictions on the First Amendment in the same way that Operation Fast and Furious was to be used to impose restrictions on the Second Amendment.
Like Fast and Furious, the Benghazi incident is a story that won’t go away despite the complicity of the mainstream media to downplay it. Each day new revelations suggest a cover-up is in the works. Bureaucrats, who don’t want to be burned because of upper echelon incompetence or malfeasance, will continue to leak more information to provide cover for themselves, so it is unlikely that this story will dry up soon. In fact both stories seem to be growing exponentially in the scope and size of direct administration involvement. The mainstream media has turned a blind eye to these stories, but Univision, Fox News, talk radio and internet blog sites continue to unravel the web of deception that is apparently being spun in Washington. As the alternative media continues to dig, we may actually get to the answer as to “why” all of this occurred. Ultimately, executive privilege may be invoked to stop any further investigations into the Benghazi incident, as it was in Operation Fast and Furious, but that cannot stop the anonymous leaks.
Aside from the cover-ups, the common denominator in both Operation Fast and Furious and the Benghazi incident is that American blood has been shed, seemingly to further a political agenda. If history does indeed repeat itself, then we likely will end up with another failed and publically disgraced presidency regardless of who wins the election.
