They tried, but they couldn’t cover it up. Obama lies when he says he didn’t authorize it, or had no knowledge of the undercover sale of arms to the Mexican drug cartel.

The media ignored the crime as long as it could, but it had to air the story on TV news Sunday night.
To show you how long the media sat on this story while the Obama administration tried to cover it up, they knew since December 2010. I wrote about this story on February 22, 2011, that was more than a month ago, look it up, it is titled the Corrupt ATF.
While Obama said he did not authorize this scheme and the Attorney General new nothing about it, it is now known, and has now been reported that Obama’s DOJ knew about it.
So the big question is, WHY?
When solving a crime like this, the first thing one does, is to look for a motive. Who would gain by these guns showing up in the hands of Mexican criminals?
Last year Mexican president Felipe Calderon stated that the weapons found in the hands of the drug cartel came from the U.S. After that accusation was proved false and that the weapons were actually shown as coming from Eastern Europe and Russia, Obama, in order to shore-up his war on guns and gain support for his illegal unconstitutional national gun ban campaign, he wanted American guns smuggled into Mexico so the proof could be documented.
So, buffered through the DOJ Obama had the ATF smuggle guns from Texas into Mexico. But it backfired on him and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot and killed Tuesday night, December 18 2010. He was killed with one of these ATF undercover smuggled guns. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano immediately jumped on the case looking now like a cover-up. The gun has since been traced back to a Texas gun dealer who was pressured by the ATF to sell these guns to the Cartel.
By following the path backward it ended up at the DOJ who has no specific motive of its own to get involved in a criminal action such as this --- but Obama does.
What did he know, and when did he know it.
Now the question is, did Obama do a good enough job covering his six to maintain denial of the crime?
I certainly hope not…
