Maddow says: “This is what the Fast and Furious scandal is. This is it. It is a conspiracy theory on the right that President Obama is secretly trying to take away all your guns. That’s what it was.”
No, I’m sorry Rachel, Fast and Furious was a program where the US government allowed over 2,000 assault weapons to be walked into Mexico. To date over 300 people have been killed by those weapons, including a US Border Patrol agent. Attorney General Eric Holder has consistently stonewalled on the release of documents that would actually shine some light on what they were thinking when they set up this operation, and just who knew about it. If you want to quash the ‘Obama’s gun-grab’ theory, join those interested in the truth and demand that AG Holder release the documents he has. Honestly Ms. Maddow, if this was a ‘delusion’ why would the President exercise Executive Privilege in withholding the documents. Three hundred people are dead, and the administration is saying “nothing to see here, move along.” If you are in fact a journalist I think that is something you would want to investigate.
Also to note Ma’am, AG Holder has already walked back his statement that this program was started under the previous administration. That talking point is no longer valid.
