On September 26, 2011, the Tucson Tea Party hosted a meeting in an attempt to the get the facts straight about the under cover operation known as Fast and Furious that essentially armed the Mexican cartels. Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, and "whistle blower" ATF Agent Cefalu spoke at the event.Tucson Tea Party - Part 2

"Our brave "whistle blower" ATF Agent Cefalu said that if we the people cannot have the Congress we elected hold those who mishandled this operation accountable then there is no point to government. We need to forward this email and make sure that all of those we come into contact with know about this scandal and the deaths and destruction left in it's wake.
Thank you Representative Gosar for attending and speaking last night, but please take our message to the rest of the Oversight Committee in Washington and tell them that this "operation" (scandal) needs to be completely investigated and accountability needs to be dealt out in strong doses to those responsible.
Thank you to Sheriff Paul Babeu and Agent Cefalu for your insight, courage and continued service to our country.
Remember that a government is only as the strong or effective as the people it governs. We hope you remain strong and mobilize in your communities and neighborhoods to lift and work where you are needed."

Fast and Furious: Using Humans as Collateral Damage
"In his speech, Cefalu made the larger argument that this is a major government corruption problem, not only surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, but about a runaway government that doesn't answer to the people, saying ATF agents and the Department of Justice shouldn’t be able to say no to Congress when asked for documentation surrounding operations within the Bureau. The Obama Justice Department has been stonewalling the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into Operation Fast and Furious since day one." view full article
