When Did Obama Know About Project Gunrunner? At a Minimum, the Moment He Stepped Into Office!

The bigger question is:  When did he know about Operation Fast-and-Furious?  Well, based upon his Press Secretary’s evasiveness, I’d say he knew about it from the beginning:

White House Mum on When Obama Learned of DOJ’s Gun-Running Scheme
By Fred Lucas

(CNSNews.com) – White House Spokesman Jay Carney has failed to follow-up on a statement he made at the June 27 White House briefing that he would get back to a reporter with the exact date that President Barack Obama first became aware of  “Operation Fast and Furious,” a botched sting operation in which U.S. officials knowingly allowed smugglers to buy guns at licensed U.S. firearms dealers.

“I’ll have to get back to you,” Carney said at the briefing. “I don’t have an exact date for you.”

The operation was halted shortly after two of the guns from the operation were found at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December 2010. It was an operation ran primarily through the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

The Justice Department in Washington, D.C., the U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Arizona, the FBI, and the Drug Enforcement Administration were also involved, according to findings by congressional investigators.

On June 27, CNSNews.com asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, “Could you tell me what is the exact date that the president learned about the Justice Department ATF operation to allow guns to flow into Mexico?”

Carney apparently had trouble understanding the question, saying,  “I mean, I think I’ve answered this question a bunch about — about what he learned?”

CNSNews.com said, “What is the exact date that he learned about it?”

Carney apparently still did not understand. “The exact thing that he learned?”

CNSNews.com again clarified, “Exact date — date.”

Carney finally responded, “I’ll have to get back to you. I don’t have an exact date for you.”

The White House has since not responded to questions about an exact date or approximate date when Obama learned about the operation.

The next day, June 28, CNSNews.com sent a follow-up e-mail to Carney. Then on July 6, CNSNews.com e-mailed Carney and the White House press office, and called the White House press office to ask for the exact date the president became aware of “Operation Fast and Furious.” In lieu of a precise date, CNSNews.com said an approximate date of a month and year would be helpful.

Neither Carney nor another White House spokesperson replied.

Well, Mr. Carney, Obama’s own signature shows that he knew about Project Gunrunner on February 17th, 2009 when he signed the Stinkulus Package:

“For an additional amount for ‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.”

Yup.  Apparently, while Obama was positioning himself for a backdoor gun-control scheme, he was also trying to save and/or create jobs for the Methican Mafia and their hitmen.  Maybe gravedigger jobs were what Obama was talking about when he proclaimed, “shovel-ready” jobs.

Perhaps the only reason Obama isn’t facing impeachment proceedings right now is because of his life insurance policy:  Joe Biden.

    I have an idea, first, set up an illegal guvmint program funded with the money stolen from citizens and then when you get caught bring in some lawyers and set up a commission to investigate funded by money stolen from citizens. Oh wait, that is exactly what they are already doing, never mind, carry on.

    As for Barack, he may have known, but he never really know knowed, you know? He never has, or does. Coming soon to a billboard near you, not just dumb, but Obama dumb!

    DaOne, alone with Billery, the Bull Dike at Homeland inSecurity, and the BLT wannabe at Justice are all doing what they have sold out to do. They follow a global new age agenda. One that Soros is backing.

    Just one more crime and sinister plot perpetrated by the administration of our ‘Dear Leader’ and his commissars. This one is backfiring, it was really an assault on the 2nd amendment. IMHO these devious scoundrels will stop at nothing to limit our freedom and liberty.

    U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) said, “I have spoken to the president. He is with me on [gun control], and it’s just going to be when that opportunity comes forward that we’re going to be able to go forward.” And longtime anti-gun activist Sarah Brady has said that in March, the president told her “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control] … We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
    Rather incriminating statements, given the circumstances.
    He knew about it, was in on it, and fully intended to carry it out to the point of gutting the 2nd amendment. Nothing’s going to convince me otherwise. Come get them, bitch.

    I added a link to the Oath Keepers in our fighting back category. The day that gun control advocates win is the day they will face their biggest fear, an armed and pissed off public.

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”

    Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution (Philadelphia 1787)
