Fast and Furious funded by stimulus, ATF Project Gunrunner 10 million from 2009 Act, Media lies

Today we learned that the unemployment rate is back up to 9.2 percent.

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show a few minutes ago stated that 10 million dollars from the Stimulus Bill, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, went to Operation Fast and Furious. Fox News has reported this also.

Media Matters, over an hour ago reported:

“Fox News Baselessly Claims Stimulus Funds Went To ATF’s Operation Fast And Furious”

“Fox News is baselessly reporting that funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 went to Operation Fast and Furious, a controversial initiative of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) operation Project Gunrunner in which agents knowingly allowed guns to be trafficked across the border to Mexico in order to identify other members of a trafficking network. In fact, stimulus funds earmarked for Project Gunrunner were not distributed in Arizona, where a GOP report indicates Fast and Furious took place.”

Here is the allocation of 10 million dollars to the ATF for the sourthern border of the US to “combat criminal narcotics activity.”

“H. R. 1—16

OFFICE OF JUSTICE PROGRAMS

STATE AND LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTANCE”

“For an additional amount for ‘‘State and Local Law Enforcement
Assistance’’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide
assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the
Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to
combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern
border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘‘Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’’
for the ATF Project Gunrunner.”

This is found on page 16:

Media Matters, is the following an Orwellian word smithing and attempt to discredit the report?

“In fact, stimulus funds earmarked for Project Gunrunner were not distributed in Arizona, where a GOP report indicates Fast and Furious took place.”

We know that the ATF purchased the weapons for Project Gunrunner, aka Fast and Furious. The Stimulus Bill paragraph states:

“to provide  assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the
Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to 
combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern
border”

Arizona is still on the southern border isn’t it?

Media Matters, if you have some real evidence, you know, like a Bill to repudiate these facts, please respond.
