No scandal is more threatening to the Obama administration than Operation Fast and Furious. While other scandals involve money, Fast and Furious involves lives, including that of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, gunned down with a weapon that the federal government put in the hands of Mexico's narco-terrorists.

This was a really good book detailing one of Barack Obama's worst scandals and his and his cronies shameless cover-up. Katie Pavlich did an excellent job writing and researching this book and it really shows. If you want to learn about Operation Fast and Furious and some of its horrible consequences, read this book.

If he breathes wrong there is an issue just because those of a lighter skin tone are uncomfortable with a black man lesding the country. Truth ne told mccain wasmt born in America, not even on an American base...wbjch means he can never be president but that was overlooked....what about all the scandals when the bushes were running things? That was more acceptable since they could relate to the pesident due to his skin tone being the same as theirs...America you still have a long way to go

An interesting narrative of the continuing saga of the "gunwalking" of assault rifles and other deadly guns into Mexico.
It wasn't until two of the guns killed a U.S. Border Patrol agent that the lies began to unravel.
The idea was to let guns be sold in the U.S. to Mexican "straw buyers" who would then be tracked to the cartels in Mexico.
The only problem was that the ATF had no way, and apparently didn't care, that the guns could not be tacked once they crossed the border!
ATF whistle-blowers were gagged, silenced, and tranferred. Truly appalling!
The question is now... how far up does this debacle go?
At the very least, Attorney General Eric Holder should resign, if not thrown in jail! This book should really make you think.

unfortunately our so-called mainstream media have been ignoring Operation Fast and Furious, a scandal more serious than Watergate, as it involves the murders of two U>S> agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens. This book fills in the information that the newspapers and magazines have been ignoring for too long. Well=written and researched.

"In the end, Operation Fast and Furious wasn't a "botched" program. It was a calculated and lethal decision to purposely place thousands of guns into the hands of ruthless criminals. The guns weren't accidentally misplaced or lost. They didn't somehow "fall into the wrong hands" by mistake. The operation was a coordinated and planned effort not to track guns, but to arm thugs south of the border for political gain" (Pavlich pg 162).

"Did the Obama administration and its political appointees put their zeal for their own political agenda ahead of public safety? The evidence suggests the answer is yes. Certainly there is evidence enough to suggest that, at a bare minimum, senior members of the Obama administration could face charges of perjury and obstruction of justice " (Pavlich pg 149-150).
