Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is getting into the F&F denial game this week as Tuesday she added her voice to the Obama Regime’s claims that none of them knew anything about Obama’s disastrous guns to Mexican narco-terrorists program called Operation Fast and Furious.

In testimony before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, Napolitano said she had no knowledge of F&F.

Senator John McCain (R, Ariz) put it to her specifically asking if she was “unfamiliar” with Operation Fast and Furious. Napolitano replied, “that is accurate.”

Then she added herself as another spot in the administration’s stone wall.

Napolitano said she first found out about the operation after Terry’s killing and that she is declining to comment on it further until the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general’s office completes its independent review of the operation. Attorney General Eric Holder ordered the IG investigation earlier this year.

“First of all, we wanted to make sure that the investigation into the cause of the death and prosecution was pursued vigorously,” she said.

“And that was being done. I did meet with the FBI agent-in-charge in Arizona at the time. At the time I was told that DOJ was referring the entire matter to the inspector general, so we have reserved judgment until that report has come about.”

McCain asked Napolitano to supply him with the exact dates that she learned that guns from the BATF were “lost” and were ending up at U.S. crime scenes.

I’m sure she’ll rush to get right back to the senator on that.

While Napolitano spins and dithers about her part in Fast and Furious, reports are coming in that three more murders are being linked to guns sold to Mexican narco-terrorists by Obama’s BATF.

The Department of Justice has supplied a letter to members of the congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious that brings the total number of deaths in the U.S. to four.

One AK-47 type assault rifle purchased by a Fast and Furious suspect was recovered Nov. 14, 2009 in Atoyac de Alvarez, Mexico after the Mexican military rescued a kidnap victim.

On July 1, 2010, two AK-47 type assault rifles purchased by Fast and Furious suspects were recovered in Sonora, Mexico after a shootout between cartels. Two murders were reported in the incident using the weapons.

On July 26, 2010, a giant .50 caliber Barrett rifle purchased by a Fast and Furious suspect was recovered in Durango, Mexico after apparently having been fired. No further details of the incident were given.

On Aug. 13, 2010, two AK-47 type assault rifles purchased by a Fast and Furious target were recovered in Durango, Mexico after a confrontation between the Mexican military and an “armed group.”

On Nov. 14, 2010, two AK-47 type assault rifles purchased by Fast and Furious targets were recovered in Chihuahua, Mexico after “the kidnapping of two individuals and the murder of a family member of a Mexican public official.” Sources tell CBS News they believe this is a reference to a case we previously reported on: the terrorist kidnapping, torture and murder of Mario Gonzalez Rodriguez. Rodriguez was the brother of then-attorney general Patricia Gonzalez Rodriguez. The terrorists released video of Rodriguez before his death, in handcuffs surrounded by hooded gunmen.

On May 27, 2011, three AK-47 type assault rifles purchased by Fast and Furious targets were recovered in Jalisco, Mexico after having been fired. No other details of the incident were provided, but the date and location match with another incident previously reported by CBS News. On May 27 near Jalisto, cartel members fired upon a Mexican government helicopter, forcing it to make an emergency landing. According to one law enforcement source, 29 suspected cartel members were killed in the attack.

The death toll will mount as the guns continue to turn up in the hands of violent criminals.

Also, it is important to remember that these are juts the violent crimes that have happened in the U.S.A. We have no way to know how many murders have been committed in Mexico with these guns.
