    Officials at the Department of Justice are in "panic mode," according to multiple sources, as word spreads that congressional testimony next week will paint a bleak and humiliating picture of Operation Fast and Furious, the botched undercover operation that left a trail of blood from Mexico to Washington, D.C.

    The operation was supposed to stem the flow of weapons from the U.S. to Mexico by allowing so-called straw buyers to purchase guns legally in the U.S. and later sell them in Mexico, usually to drug cartels.

    Instead, ATF documents show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms knowingly and deliberately flooded Mexico with assault rifles. Their intent was to expose the entire smuggling organization, from top to bottom, but the operation spun out of control and supervisors refused pleas from field agents to stop it.

    "Officials at the Department of Justice are in "panic mode," according to multiple sources,"
    ____________________________________________

    Who are these, "multiple sources ?"
    Why should they be in a panic mode ?
    Congress is rabidly pro gun.
    We have an agreement with Mexico.
    We look the other way as their drugs cross the border.
    And, they look our way, as our guns cross the border.

    The Koch brothers (I wish). I assume it doesn't bother you that the DOJ likely quite high up authorized an operation that exported a massive number of illegal weapons to Mexico - one of which killed an ATF agent?

    A question I've posed about him and a few others here. Ever see him engage in any kind of meaningful discussion about gay health & fitness, the main purpose of this site? No? His stuff's all pro-Republican, which means anti-gay. Isn't that curious...

    Actually, it was an answer - you can see plenty of links that I've posted to other parts of the forums. You have chosen however not to look for them but instead wear your stupidity like a source of pride. Congratulations - it suits you icon_wink.gif

    Incidentally, I'm guessing you're also saying that what the DOJ has done doesn't bother you in the slightest. The irony is that you're the partisan hack you accuse others of being.

    I fail to see your point. There have been plenty of posts that are outside the political realm if you dig further. I'm sorry you feel facts about the economy or even TEDTalks (quite incredibly) are "right wing propaganda" but that might be more than your addled mind can handle. Once again you demonstrate that you are little more than a partisan hack who at times posts a bit of fluff elsewhere. Congratulations. icon_wink.gif

    Of course you fail to see the point. That's not what you're here to do, as others have already figured out. And my "fluff" generates lots of personal e-mails of thanks, from guys seeking advice. A function you wouldn't know about, since that's not your purpose here, is it? Your purpose being to disrupt and undermine us.

    Problem is, a lot of guys here besides me have seen through your facade, and so I think your usefulness to the right-wing has been seriously compromised. Sorry, but you blew it by being a little too obvious. And all the ad hominem attacks against me and others here will not repair that. Maybe you could try again with a new screen name? But be forewarned -- such obvious tactics under any other name are, well, obvious.

    I will weigh in on this. riddler has many friends on RJ, including many in his area. He involves himself with face-to-face get togethers. Most of the guys do not post in the political threads. Point is he has many friends and is involved with RJ guys in various capacities.

    He is a very effective articulator of his political position. He provides articles and actively discusses the issues. Because he is effective and has the facts behind him, he has become under attack from liberals who are frustrated not only because the currents show liberalism as an utter failure, but also because riddler is so effective.

    There are many guys on RJ who are not radical liberal and do not take kindly to the obnoxious assertions by some lefties that if you do not support radical left agendas, you are anti-gay. A few of you are using gay issues as a lever to try and foist your radical economic philosophy on others. You fail and you are despicable.

    Lol - right. What is it do you suppose I need to repair? Actually I do get a number of personal emails. How you can possibly presume to know what my purpose is, is truly remarkable given the total lack of intuition, grace and intellect with which you post. You, like a few others here, feel the need to hide behind others as if you speak on behalf of them. Grow a pair, please. Do not presume to speak on behalf of others - I feel almost embarrassed for you.

    My intentions here have been quite transparent - though sadly yours are even more so.

    There you go again with your knucklehead conspiracy theories. Pro-Republican does NOT necessarily mean "anti-gay". When has Riddler ever said anything even remotely "anti-gay"? As for hearing Riddler ever engaging in any "meaningful discussion about gay health & fitness", I can't say I have ever heard YOU do that either. Furthermore, by your own admission, you are neither FIT or particularly HEALTHY, but here you are on a gay health & fitness site --- so what exactly is your freaking point?

    Riddler78 deserves the thanks of many on RJ. He is consistent in his views, expresses himself extraordinarily well, and admits when he is in error. He is very much unlike the typical RJ Liberal Thug.
