RUSH: And looky here, folks, from the Cybercast News Service: "Obama Contributor, Who Helped Enact Assault Weapons Ban, Ran ‘Fast and Furious’" Did you hear that? Let me repeat that for you. Cybercast News Service: "Obama Contributor, Who Helped Enact Assault Weapons Ban, Ran ‘Fast and Furious’ -- Dennis K. Burke, who as a lawyer for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee in the 1990s was a key player behind the enactment of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, and who then went on to become Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano’s chief of staff, and a contributor to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential primary campaign, and then a member of Obama's transition team focusing on border-enforcement issues, ended up in the Obama administration as the US attorney in Arizona responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious."
But wait a minute. Obama didn't know anything about Fast and Furious, and Eric Holder didn't know anything about Fast and Furious. The Democrats tell us this. The media tells us. Obama says it. So Dennis Burke, who is as close to Obama as anybody can get, ran the assault weapons ban in 1994, worked for Janet Napolitano in Arizona, Obama's primary campaign in '08, transition team in '08, ends up as the regime's US attorney in Arizona responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious. "From 1989 to 1994, he was a counsel for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, working in that capacity for several years on an assault weapons ban, which was finally enacted on Sept. 13, 1994 as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. That act expired on Sept. 13, 2004." And they have been trying to get it back ever since.
A lot of people, and I'll throw my hat in this ring, think that's what Fast and Furious was all about. And Jay Carney, the White House spokeskid, says it's absurd to think Fast and Furious is about gun control. But Obama's lead US attorney in Arizona oversaw the program. Every day, every day it's a new threatening disaster that strikes this country.
