Here’s how it worked …. wrongly, and intentionally, the supervisors of ATF ordered their agents (specifically: Agent John Dodson) to “stand down, watch, and record”, purposefully allowing the breaking of the public trust – allowing automatic weapons to go into the hands of criminals …..
By whom and why were these orders given? (Here’s a backup CBS report.)
Note the threat issued to Agent Dodson – that he may end up serving lunches to inmates at the Maricopa county jail.
Remember; regarding the “why”, … this was at the height of the accusations that it was profiteering by Americans, using the 2nd Amendment as cover to make money which was the problem, … but was it?
Instead, it looks as if this “violation of trust” was to be used to build a case whose intent it was to scuttle the part of the Constitution which has allowed the American public to arm themselves.
It is written into our founding father’s documents that Americans must be able to prevent a despotic government from destroying the freedom of the people and that the first step always (in retrospect) seems to have been a disarming of the public!
That is the underlying cause of Fast & Furious! And with that said, if this is correct, then it is the current administration who is to be feared and despised!
There are courageous people who need to be supported; there are slimeballs in charge, who not only need to be in jail, but consider, what could their motivation be …. other than to subvert the Constitution which they swore to uphold?
