    Eric Holder grilled over Fast and Furious in Congress

    WASHINGTON -- One at a time, Rep. Darrell Issa held up a thick wiretap application form and slammed it on his dais in the elaborate House Judiciary Committee hearing room. Each time the Vista, Calif., Republican angrily read out loud the dates: May 15, 2010, April 19, 2010, May 7, 2010, May 17, 2010, June 2, 2010, and July 2, 2010. All of them, he said, “before Brian Terry was gunned down.”
    The packages were proof, Issa contended, that the Department of Justice in Washington and perhaps the Obama White House were aware of the flawed tactics in the ATF’s Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation in Arizona that allowed more than 2,000 firearms to “walk” into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

    Anyone questioning the corruption that is the Obama administration need only look at DoJ these days, and more importantly, Eric Holder himself...He is a glaring jewel of progressive thinking that everyone outside the Obama administration is stupid, and can't see his lies for what they are....Criminal.

    Jebus, are y'all still whining about this?!
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Yes, corruption. Listen, when a bipartisan group to include Diane Fienstien wants to know about the leaks coming out of the WH that are risking our national security, and Holder answers back that he sees nothing to investigate....Then there is a problem with corruption.

    Holder should be in prison. The whole "Fast and Furious" scandal just reeks of deception and corruption and the DOJ just turns it's eyes away, doing little to find the real truth.

    In my amateur analysis I think he is running blocker for Obama himself. See, I think that Barry thought if anything went wrong, they could blame it on Bush and the whole 'wide reciever' thing. Trouble is, Bush actually tracked the weapons they did, and they let Mexico in on the plan.....Obama didn't. See, he thought what a great idea to start doing away with the 2nd Amendment....Til Terry died that is....Now they are in hot water, and that dishonest puke Holder is criminal in his prosecution of office these days.

    I have similar thoughts about the GOV wanting to diminish the value of 2nd Amendment where it can be manipulated to fit their agenda. (See Clinton and upcoming senate vote on UN treaties.) I have also come to think that the GOV illegally funneling firearms to Mexican drug cartels, and the blaming it on American citizens, is another way to justify more money to the BATFE and other GOV enforcement agencies to trample on people's 2nd Amendment rights.

    I understand your anger. It remind me of the Iran Contra affair... oh wait, that was Reagan, never mind.
