Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Texas Rep. and presidential candidate Ron Paul said Attorney General Eric Holder should be fired immediately and Congress should investigate his role in the Fast and Furious operation run by the ATF and the Justice Department.
The covert operation provided a large number of firearms to Mexican drug cartels waging war with one another and the Mexican government.
â€œHe should be immediately fired,â€ Paul told Alex Jones, â€œand then there should be an investigation and find out if charges should be made.â€ He specifically criticized the government for continuously engaging in politically motivated and criminal behavior he characterized as false flag operations.
Documents released by CBS News reveal Fast and Furious was exploited to demonize the Second Amendment.
â€œEmails obtained by the network show ATF agents discussing how they could tie guns involved in Mexican violence to gun dealers based in the U.S. to justify the implementation of Demand Letter 3, a regulation that would require U.S. gun stores to report the sale of multiple rifles,â€ Paul Joseph Watson wrote on December 7.
Paul said the government â€œconstantlyâ€ engages in such criminal behavior. He cited the example of an allegation made in October by the United States that Iran was involved in an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador. Paul characterized the incident as a â€œpropaganda stunt.â€
Following the arrest of a suspect it was discovered the plot was concocted by the FBI. An undercover DEA informant had â€œstrongly pushedâ€ the assassination idea on Mansour J. Arbabsiar, an Iranian-American used-car salesman who was â€œperennially disheveledâ€ and â€œhopelessly disorganized,â€ according to news reports.
