Even though the United States Department of Justice’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives couldn’t keep track of the guns “walking” from the United States into Mexico, Katie Pavlich in her new book, “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up,” accurately tracks the timeline of the events of this disastrous and deadly operation.
On Jan. 15, 2009, with people reeling from a bad economy and with so many other negative things happening in the world, a miracle occurred on the Hudson River when US Airways Flight 1549 loaded with 155 passengers and crew landed safely on the river after Canadian geese hit and disabled the plane’s engines. The book, “Highest Duty: My Search for What Really Matters,” written by Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the pilot of US Airways Flight 1549, and with the help of Jeffrey Zaslow tells the story of what happened that day and how Sullenberger prepared to pull off that miracle throughout his life.
