The Weekly Standard reports self disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder keeps himself awake at night.
Briefly quoting the Weekly Standard item linked above:
Attorney General Eric Holder has a “lot of sleepless nights,” reported ABC News this morning. Chief among his concerns? The threat of “homegrown violent extremists.”
Well, let’s see here. Apparently acting under Holder’s orders the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has run a number of “Operations.” Putatively, those “operations” were to catch criminals.
There was “Operation Fast and Furious,” and its companion operation “Operation Grenade Runner,” both to benefit the Sinaloa Cartel. According to Mexican media reports, more than 500 murders have been traced to guns provided through these two operations alone.
There were Operations out of the Houston and Dallas ATF offices that reportedly authorized guns to agents of the Gulf and Zeta NarcoCartel. Operations that certainly cost lives, although I know of no credible count of the lives lost.
“Operation Castaway” reportedly authorized sales of weapons to agents of the notorious “MS-13″ street gang.” Enough guns to trigger a sharp rise in Nicaragua’s murder rate.
An Indiana based “Operation” smoothed the way for gun sales to Midwestern criminal gangs. And give Indiana a major presence in gun recovered in Chicago.
A Milwaukee “Operation” even supplied a machine gun to a known criminal. And all of these operations were supposed to catch violent criminals.
Where are the criminals? Other than a handful of “straw purchasers” I have seen no arrests, no trials, no convictions, de nada, nothing. Even the guys caught in McAllen, Texas with 137 fully automatic AK-47’s served less than 90 days.
And that shocking list is just the tip of the tip of the Eric Holder iceberg. And Holder stays awake at night “worrying about home grown terrorists?”
He must be worrying about his own actions, because no American born “home grown terrorist” has done more to terrorize innocents and create widows and orphans than Eric Holder.
