The Attorney General of the State of Arizona should charge the Attorney General of the United States with negligent homicide in the deaths of Agents Terry, Zapata and Mexican nationals.
Not really. The government sanctioned program of allowing convicted felons to sell guns to drug cartels without interdiction resulted in cold-blooded murder, yet no one has been charged. Contrast that with the frenzied rush to judgment in the Trayvon Martin case.
The 16-month Fast and Furious investigation has been virtually drip, drip, drip. In addition, the Mexican government has been eerily quiet about gun walking weapons used to kill its own citizens. Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, keeps threatening to get to the bottom of it and the mainstream media folks won’t touch anything not approved by the regime.
But fortunately for us, the Obama administration decided to exploit the Trayvon Martin tragedy.
Side by side timelines of the two situations bring to mind a recent comment by an ousted Venezuelan supreme court justice now seeking asylum in the United States in exchange for inside info on Hugo Chavez. Eladio Aponte described what it’s like trying to dole out due process in his former country.
“Justice is nothing. Justice is a ball of putty because it can be molded for or against,” said Mr. Aponte on the broadcast. “I don’t think the [separation of powers] exists.”
Sounds like Holder and Hugo Chavez look at justice the same way.
