Comments: Could Obama Administration Officials Face Life in Prison or Death Penalty Charges for Gunwalker?

They don't need to fight this tooth and nail. There is no superior legal authority that can hold them accountable. Even if they admit they did it, they will get away with it. no one in the government is going to jail because of this with the possible exception of any whistle-blowers. The most likely thing is that the Dems will lose the White house ans Senate in the next elections and then will only have another month to loot the treasury on the way out. No one in office is even going to suggest impeaching America's first black president. The press doesn't care as much about this as they care about protecting Obama, so they aren't going to mention it except as an example about how easy it is for criminals to get guns from America.

Like all crimes committed by elected Democrats, this will just go away.

I am watching the PBS show "Prohibition". Even though this deals with drugs and not alcohol, it stems from the same thing and what people don't realize is that drug access was stopped along with alcohol. The result has been the same, people will try to get the product and will use violence at all ends. How do you stop this? You allow people to have freedom once again. You allow them to obtain what drugs they think they need and eliminate the government except for assuring quality. Until that happens, things will only get worse. If you think you live in a free society, consider this, I use alcohol to finish furniture products. That alcohol has poisons inserted in it by our government that will kill you, the reason, so that the government can control the product and collect tax. Is that a free society??

We can hope.

We can hope that someone will decide that the folks who write the laws and execute our government are not above the law.

It would go a long way towards building trust in our government if they DID stand trial. I doubt it will ever happen, but I dream of the day when President Obama, Holder, and the rest who planned and executed this set of crimes stand trial, are convicted, and jailed, and then extradited and tried in Mexico and Honduras, or perhaps the ICC and then serve out the rest of their natural lives in a Mexican or Honduran jail.

Might even help reign in our various graft-ridden politicians across the rest of our government as well.

And I'd like a pony too. Perhaps the leprechaun can bring it to me.

"We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

Causes one to ask how many of those damned things walked North.

Not to digress from the topic at hand but doesn't it seem these "capitalist" protests that are going on are part of Obama's larger campaign strategy. He's even acknowledged them now, providing them a legitimate voice. If I'm off please let me know.

If you read the WHOLE item at the link, you note that the Bush Administration started this stuff.

So the question: how many idiots can be found to run the country?

Bush's related investigations did not let guns 'walk'. They actually resulted in prosecutions. They did not kill Mexicans or American border guards.

the answer is no

it is virtually impossible to hold democrats responsible,

unless they are stupid enough to film or photgraph themselves and then there is no way for thier handmaids in the media to run defense for them.

Just another attempt to show that criminals can buy guns from a gun shop.

Crimes committed with these guns will "prove" that guns are the cause of all crime.
