BATF’s Operation Castaway

Gun Running

As President of the Save America Foundation, I want to make all our members and readers totally aware of the up to date status of the “Gun Running” deal of weapons to the Mexican drug cartels, and the lies that have been made by people from the White House (President Barrack Hussein Obama), the DOJ, (AG Eric Holder) and others. This totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL and ILLEGAL operation was funded by money specifically allocated to it under the Presidents stimulus fund. One of the weapons, an AK47 sold by our ATF agents, was used in the murder of an ICE Agent by one of the drug cartels who bought these fireams. Congress has been lied to and has had delaying tactics used against them in their investigation by the AGs office and the other corrupt Federal Agencies involved.  These are the same weapons that the President told America were supplied by corrupt and bad firearms dealers along the border states and was why he said we needed tougher gun control laws.

The Save America Foundation, and millions of other outraged Patriots and Citizens, DEMAND that Congress investigates this matter in a thorough manner, and expedites the whole process. These people, from the top to the bottom, and I mean by bottom, the ATF agents and other agents  who obeyed without thinking the illegal orders involved in this operation. And from the top, I mean all the way up the chain of command.  We want to see arrests and trials for treason. We want to see these people held responsible for their treasonous actions and their involvement in the murder of an ICE Agent.

It is time for the Law Enforcement community, of which I am a member, to become fully aware of their duty to protect the citizens and the Constitution, from enemies foreign and domestic, and that the oath does not have an expiration date once taken. Orders given by anyone to any Police or Law Enforcement Official must be lawful OR MUST NOT be obeyed. America is under attack from, and among others, our own leadership and our protectors must be made aware of this.

I am asking everyone to read the following information, written by SAF member Robin Tong, and to pass it on to everyone in your facebook and twitter community, and your family and friends, etc.

America, wake up!! We are in danger and we need to get busy and active.

Operation Castaway is a BATF operation ran out of Tampa in which the agency let straw buyers purchase weapons, and then let those weapons walk out of the country under the guise of an international investigation.
This arrest warrant that the weapons ended up in Puerto Rico and throughout Central and South America, and have been linked to violent crimes around the world.

Here is the initial report announcing the “success” of this operation being the largest weapons dealing case in Florida history.

In various comments in the report DHS and U.S. Attorneys acknowledge their responsibilities for “import and export enforcement in order to keep our citizens safe and secure”, and that taking “high-level weaponry off the streets will increase safety not only for our citizens but for people abroad”, but then incredulously fail to acknowledge that by allowing these weapons to walk across the border they were aiding and abetting the murders and violent crimes in which these weapons were ultimately utilized.

Reportedly the Special Agent in Charge of Operation Fast and Furious being ran out of the Phoenix Field Division was SAC O’Brien, whom was promoted to Deputy Assistant Director of the ATF, but then stepped down for a position in the Tampa BATF offices from which Operation Castaway was ran as part of an Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force conducted by DHS Investigations, ATF, ICE, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, and the Miami-Dade Police Department.

The “smoking gun” of these revelations is that Fast and Furious was not a scandal isolated to a rogue field division, but an established policy funded and enforced with interdepartmental cooperation across numerous departments of government, thereby refuting the Congressional testimony of several senior officers of government that they knew nothing of the project or operations.

Acting Director Kenneth Melson of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has refused political pressures to fall on his own sword and resign as the scapegoat of the scandal, and instead appeared before Congress over the 4th of July with his own private counsel, and provided testimony that the DOJ was blocking any efforts of the BATF and other agencies to comply with Congresses investigation.

Consequentially Congress sent a 5 page letter to the Attorney General rebuking him and demanding his compliance with the Congressional investigation, and giving a stark warning the DOJ initiating reprisals against anyone offering or called to testify before Congress.

Attorney General Eric Holder and other senior officers of the Administration have testified before Congress that they knew nothing of Project Gunrunner or the various operations ran under it, but the witness testimony and evidence and a review of C-Span and other televised statements prior to the emergence of the scandal prove otherwise, and indeed, appear to confirm that the orders directing Project Gunrunner and the operations under it came directly from the President of the United States.

Here is one example of C-Span video from March 24th, 2009.

Here is the full length 31 minute version of the C-Span video of the news conference announcing the Border Security Policy, with comments and explanations by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg and Deputy Attorney General David Ogden.

Project Gunrunner, from which both Operation Fast and Furious and Operation Castaway are linked, was actually funded by Congress in the stimulus bill, and then enacted by the President.

Information provided to the Congressional investigation reveals that taxpayer dollars were funneled by the FBI, DEA, and other agencies to covert agents, confidential informants, and known felony criminals to finance the purchase and trafficking of weapons across international borders under the supervision of BATF.

News is still forthcoming that similar operations were conducted under Project Gunrunner in Texas and several other states.

The video from Fox News details how weapons that the BATF in Tampa let walk were funneled to MS13, one of the worlds most notorious and dangerous criminal organizations. MS13 is responsible for the deaths of several U.S. officers and agents both in Central and South America, and within the United States. There are many known instances in which MS13 has placed hit orders on various officers and agents in New York, California, Texas, Arizona, and in other states.

As this scandal continues to unfold with revelations that these weapons where financed and trafficked across international borders with the blessing and assistance of the U.S. Government via the policies enacted by the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice, how is it possible that senior members of this administration may reasonably assert that their powers under the Constitution gave them the powers and authorities to enforce foreign policy and conduct criminal investigations in such reckless fashion?

Their Acts, enforced by their orders and policies, are directly responsible for creating an open state of War along our southern border in which over 30,000 Mexican citizens have been murdered, hundreds of Mexican government officials have been murdered, thousands of American citizens have been assaulted, kidnapped, raped, and murdered in violent crimes in States along the border, and border patrol agents have been murdered with the weapons that our government allowed to ‘walk‘ under the guise of a so called investigation.

It is incredulous that the officers of our government can create the sources, mechanism, monies, and material logistics and supplies by which aide and comfort are given to illicit criminal organizations, and which ultimately abet to commission of egregious crimes and endangerments of War under the guise of investigations and sting operations conducted by their offices.

These are officers sworn to uphold the United States Constitution. Article 3 Section 3 of the Constitution defines that Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.

This is Robin W. Tong reporting for The Patriot Code on behalf of the Save America Foundation.

    Further to the above article, the family of the ICE agent murdered by the drug cartel and our BATFE under AG Eric Holder, is to sue the Federal Government and Agencies civilly. They are not interested in criminal charges. It will be down to Citizens and Patriots who are as outraged as we at the Save America Foundation are, to keep making this subject top and center, and to get it out to all our friends etc.
    In another example of total contempt for America and the 2nd amendment, our leader, President Barrack Hussein Obama, has signed a Presidential decree, with no contact with Congress, saying all gun dealers on the Southern border, have to report all multiple (2) sales of rifles to the ATF, and he promises the records will only be held for 2 years!!!! Yeah… Right!! The reason for this is to try and stop the movement of firearms from the States to Mexico, as they may fall into the hands of the drug cartels!! This is OUTRAGEOUS! The largest illegal and unconstitutional gun running operation of all was carried out by the Feds, paid for with stimulus money stolen from we, the people.
    Watch these posts for updates on this absolutely illegal operations run by this President and his racist Attorney General Eric Holder.

    Just reported on FOX. Remember you read about it first here on the Save America Foundation web site.

    Now we have people involved in this illegal operation, who are watching the real possibility of losing their jobs, and maybe being tried, blaming everyone else, while the DOJ under the leadership of racist AG Holder, is stonewalling and looking for victims they can throw under the bus. The bottom line, as far as I am concerned, is that ANY person involved in any way in this operation, broke the law and broke their oath, and that is treasonable. Period. This illegal act, with clearance from the White House and the DOJ down, financed with money from the stimulus, should be enough for impeachment, arrests and trials. Read the Fox News link below for an update.

    Thank you Fred and Robin. It is clear that the powers at be are desperate to see their anti gun agenda moved forward very quickly. Obviously, the Mexican government must also be involved.

    And now it looks like two convicted felons were allowed by the FBI to buy and move these guns. A lot of agents from several agencies as well as those at the top in the administration and DOJ, need to be arrested and charged.

    Please watch this exchange and also keep up with this fast evolving story. This could, and should, end with the removal of Eric Holder from the DOJ, as well as the removal of a lot of senior on down agents attached to the FBI, ATF and other agencies all the way up to Barrack Hussein Obama. This treasonous operation is unfolding before our eyes but is not given the air time because of the debt negotiations. The SAF hopes that all involved are arrested and charged, tried and sentenced….and by all, we mean EVERYONE involved.

    A further article that needs reading. I hope, as President of this Foundation, that all our members and readers are as angry about this treasonous, illegal operation, as we are. The Obama administration is trying to block this investigation and to protect the top people involved, including the racist and incompetant AG, Mr Eric Holder. This operation was run with over $20,000,000.00 of stimulus money. I, for one, object strongly to tax payer money being used for treasonous operations that this Administration wanted to use to bring in more anti gun legistlation and to further erode the 2nd amendment.

    The time is coming for the removal from office of the AG, Eric Holder and also the impeachment of Barrack Hussein Obama, and his arrest for treason. Everyone needs to get these links out to all their media as the average liberal press is not doing much with this story.

    Below is an up to date summary from the NRA on this treasonous and un-constitutional action taken by Federal Agencies, with the full knowlege of the DOJ and I believe the WH among others, and operated, do not forget, with funds (over $20BN) from the stimulus. Please keep up with this story as it is enough to cause the removal of the AG Mr Holder and possible impeachment and removal of Barrack Hussein Obama.
