#rsrh For all your RNC Fast & Furious response needs.

Yesterday, Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, House Foreign Affairs chair, more or less unloaded on the administration for their stonewalling on Operation Fast & Furious.  Below are some handy links, audio, text, and two embeddable videos of said unloading: feel free to pass them around.  Particularly the ones that are in Spanish.

“La operación Rápida y Furiosa fue un fallo total que causo la muerte de personas inocentes en México, le cobro  la vida al agente policial norteamericano Brian Terry, daño nuestras relaciones con México y mancho la reputación del Departamento de Justicia. La Administración Obama continúa escondiéndose tras maniobras legales para evitar responsabilidad por sus acciones en esta peligrosa e irresponsable operación. Aun más, esta operación demuestra las fallidas políticas de Obama en latino América que socavan nuestra seguridad nacional y envalentonan a nuestros enemigos. En vez de culpar a otros, la Administración Obama, el Procurador General Holder, y altos funcionarios dentro del ATF deben asumir responsabilidad, confrontar los problemas que llevaron a esta innecesaria operación y asegurar que esto nunca ocurre otra vez. Las vidas de nuestros agentes policiales nunca deben ser puestas en peligro porque funcionarios en Washington no tomaron las acciones correctas y necesarias”.—Congresista Ros-Lehtinen (Fl-18)

“Fast & Furious was a complete failure that caused deaths overseas, took the life of federal law enforcement agent Brian Terry, damaged our relationship with Mexico and sullied the reputation of the Justice Department.  The Obama Administration continues to hide behind legal maneuvers and avoid responsibility for its actions in this failed and irresponsible operation. Furthermore, it illustrates Obama’s failed policies in Latin America that undermine U.S. national security and embolden our enemies. Instead of trying to find ways to blame others, the Administration, Attorney General Holder, and senior officials within the ATF should claim responsibility, fix these problems that led to this unfortunate scenario, and ensure this never happens again. The lives of our law enforcement officials should never be put in danger by senior officials’ lack of responsibility and oversight.”—Rep. Ros-Lehtinen (FL-18)
