Yesterday Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano testified before Congress that she was unaware of Operation Fast and Furious until she was informed of the gun walking program until December of 2010, after Border Agent Brian Terry’s death. But here is video of Napolitano at a press conference on March 24, 2009 talking about the program.
However, video evidence conclusively shows that she was not only at the press conference, when Project Gun Runner (3/24/2009) was announced by Deputy Attorney General David Ogden, but she stood right next to him. The Deputy Attorney General spoke of the ATF’s plan to trace guns going to Mexico. Later, in that press conference Napolitano directly outlined the plans for Operation Fast and Furious.
These officials in the Obama administration sure do have bad memories.
