I told him I’d read it when I had the chance, but initially noticed it was via CNN, a notorious supporter of the President and his Attorney General, so I suspected a slightly slanted view.
Then, I read the article. Then I went to the GBBL and noticed other bloggers were becoming aware of the
article essay opinion piece
An example of another blogger’s interpretation, i.e. his opinion:
Don’t be so nosy
This editorial actually ran on the CNN website yesterday.
Swear to God, they published it.
It’s about the “Fast And Furious” debacle, the one where the government sent thousands of guns across the Rio Grande to prove that American guns were crossing the Rio Grande. Then a couple of Federal Agents got shot with them.
I didn’t edit any of this. Here’s the kicker:
By allowing guns to infiltrate Mexico’s drug cartel, we thought we could trace them up the ladder to the leaders. Take off the head and the body dies. As for the innocent people who lost their lives? Collateral damage. That’s the uncomfortable backstory to this scandal. And there are likely other operations like it in our nation’s history that we don’t even have a clue about.
And maybe it’s better for us not to be so nosy, not to know everything because, to paraphrase the famous line from the movie “A Few Good Men,” many of us won’t be able to handle the truth.
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Go back to watching “Dancing With The Stars”. Take some happy pills. Don’t be “so nosy”.
(Drink some Kool Aid – Guffaw)
You probably couldn’t handle the truth: We’re trying to continue the War On Drugs, maintain the Drug Lords’ monopoly, plus prove that you really shouldn’t be allowed to keep those pistols in your house.
Don’t be so nosy.
Nothing to see here. Move along, people, move along. (emphasis Guffaw)
Go to the GBBL and see how similar reactions are erupting elsewhere. Or don’t be so nosy. Your choice. – Guffaw
