Fast and Furious Cover up Continues

Old habits die hard especially for corrupt political hacks. As we speak Congress is still trying to get all those documents they subpoenaed from the Justice Department-you recall- the ones Obama tried to protect under executive privilege. Well,a federal judge didn't buy that and ordered them produced.

Now comes the dribble.

Maybe 50 years from now some historian will discover the secret of this massive scandal and cover up in the National Archives. By then nobody will care.

Nobody cares now.

The GOP has been indulging in Watergate Envy, Abscam Envy, Savings and Loan Envy, desperately trying to manufacture The Great Scandal that will Put The Shoe On The Other Foot for decades. All they've come up with is that in large bureaucracies, people make mistakes which can have serious consequences. Nothing hatched in the White House with deliberate intent to circumvent the law and manipulate the outcome of elections. Those are GOP specialties.

That's right, Charlie. Keep getting your news from NPR.

You might wake up if the media started reporting on and digging into Democratic scandals.

A little like the JFK assassination debacle??

Gary Fouse said...

Right. I think the files open up in 2025, right?

elwood p suggins said...

Something like that, I seem to recall that the records were sealed for 75 years sometime fairly shortly after the assassination. I probably won't live to see it, but it sure should be interesting, no??

What? One of those guns from Fast and Furious was used to assassinate a president? Which one? How did the local papers miss out on this highly significant event?

elwood p suggins said...

The cover-up Siarlys, the cover-up. Get your head out of the clouds, or the sand, or wherever else you might have it stuck where the sun don't shine.

Siarlys Jenkins said...

What cover up? Are you one of those people who think the CIA shot John and Robert Kennedy? I wouldn't put it past them, but the evidence is none too definite. And I'm not clear about this "Fast and Furious" cover-up. Its been the subject of how many investigations?

Gary Fouse said...

It is clear that you are not clear about it. You haven't followed it like I have.

elwood p suggins said...

Siarlys--the cover-up relating to the fact of at least two shooters being involved in the JFK shooting, or at least one from the front if Oswald was in fact a "patsy" and did not shoot. Lot of theories out there, but this one is pretty clear. Details upon request.

Siarlys Jenkins said...

Oh, you believe in that theory. OK, elwood, maybe its true. What do you think of the theory that the Pentagon was hit by a missile on 9/11, not a plane? The video about that was very, very convincing. Only, I was living in the DC area at the time, and the supervisor of the department I worked in was one of several thousand commuters on freeways coming in from northern Virginia who all saw the plane, not a missile, hit the Pentagon. Not to mention the five DC school children who were on the plane, on their way to a National Geographic competition. The FBI tried to identify and interview as many of those commuters as they could.

The only video I ever saw of the plane hitting the Pentagon showed me, however scratchily and momentarily, a plane. It was certainly not at all convincing as to a missile. Perhaps you saw a photo shopped/doctored video and didn't know it. Nor do I believe that beings from UFO's have tractor-beamed some of us up to the mothership and conducted all kinds of experiments on us.

On another hand, as only a couple of examples, the obvious exit wound in the rear of JFK's head, almost certainly from a hunting/expanding round quite different from the military-type ammunition that Oswald had, coupled with the extremely violent rearward movement of the head when he was shot, quite clearly, to me in a " very, very convincing" manner, demonstrate at least one frontal shot. Which of course further demonstrates either a conspiracy and not a lone assassin, or two separate, unrelated shooters acting independently at exactly the same time and place. Not hardly on the latter.

There are, of course people who will damn the evidence and move forward with a cockamamie theory on just about anything. I just happen to believe that the JFK issue is fact, not theory.
