Fast & Furious Player Who Misled Congress Jumping DOJ Ship

Major Fast and Furious Player Who  Misled Congress Jumping DOJ Ship

By Katie Pavlich



Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich, Obama's Department of  Justice point man for communications, or in other words, chief obfuscator about  Operation Fast and Furious, is jumping ship. Weich has accepted a pposition as  dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law. University officials have confirmed Weich will start his new pposition  in July.

"During this time of considerable transition in legal  education and the legal profession, it's important to have leadership with integrity and vision," said Robert Bogomolny, the university's  president. "Ron Weich embodies those qualities. I look forward  to working with him, and I know our students, faculty, staff and alumni will be  energized by his arrival." As for Weich, "I'm aware of the  history and it doesn't concern me," he said. "I'm confident that in partnership  with others, we'll make sure the law school has the resources it needs to be  effective."

As a reminder, Weich is the man who signed and delivered a  letter to Senator Charles Grassley on February 4, 2011 about Fast and Furious  that was so misleading and full of falsehoods, that it was eventually withdrawn  eight months later. The letter stated:

At the outset, the allegation described in your January 27  letter-that ATF "sanctioned" or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault  weapons to a straw purchaser who then transported them into Mexico-is false. ATF  makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and  prevent their transportation to Mexico......

I also want to assure you that ATF has made no attempt to  retaliate against any of its agents regarding this matter. We recognize the  importance of protecting employees from retaliation relating to their disclosers  of waste, fraud and abuse. ATF employees receive annual training on their rights  under the Whistleblower protection Act, and those with knowledge of waste, fruad  or abuse are encouraged to communicate directly with the Department's Office of  the Inspector General.

Both of these assertions are lies, or in Eric Holder's words  are "inaccurate."





Not only did the ATF knowingly allow 2500 AK-47 sstyle and .50  caliber rifles to walk into the hands of dangerous Mexican drug cartels, ATF  whistleblowers were mandated to do so, and then were retaliated against for speaking out against  the program. Operation Fast and Furious has resulted in the murder of Border  Patrol Agent Brian Terry and at least 300 Mexican citizens.



“Allowing loads of weapons that we knew to be destined for  criminals, this was the plan. It was so mandated.” –Special Agent John Dodson  ATF Phoenix Field Division, June 15, 2012.

So, now Weich, the guy who issued a letter in an attempt to  mislead Congress about the Obama Justice Department's fatal Operation Fast and  Furious, is going to head one of our law schools. Great news, since  every law student should have a dean willing to submit false information to  Congress.
