One of the guns used in the Paris terror attack last November is linked to the “Fast and Furious” gun walking scandal. Conservative group Judicial Watch cites an ATF report that claims a weapon used by one of the terrorists during the attack that resulted in 130 deaths was sold by a Phoenix gun dealer as part of the ATF program.
Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the effort to cover-up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious scandal, according to public records obtained by Judicial Watch. This information is part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) “Vaughn index” detailing records about the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious.
The director of the ATF battled accusations Wednesday that his agency has done little to punish those involved in Operation Fast and Furious. “Three years after the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ATF has yet to fire anybody for their role in Operation Fast and Furious,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said. “That is inexcusable.”
The DOJ’s internal watchdog said Thursday, that the FBI has been using drones to support its law enforcement operations since 2006 and has spent more than $3 million on the unmanned aircraft.
This informations comes from a new DOJ report from inspector general, Michael Horowitz, who revealed that the department also has awarded $1.26 million to at least seven local police departments and non-profit organization for drones.
