    Of course you have some proof that if those guns didn't walk, that agent would still be alive? I'de love to see it.
    Personally those 2000 guns seem like a drop in the bucket compared to the 100s of thousands already in criminal hands.

    As I've said, probably a dozen times in various threads, the operation was obviously a screwup. That isn't excusing it.

    So the family of the agent agrees with your feigned outrage.
    "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."

    Then you should support the investigation that both the justice department and the wh are activley covering up.,

Now hiding documents, and claiming executive privledge for something he suposedly had no knowledge of is a "witch hunt"?

    I'm sorry, I disagree, as I bet the family of the dead officer would probably. It's amazing how you excuse criminal activity because it's "your guy" here.
    I agree that fast & fuzzy was (and is) an impeachable offense. But Obama is playing it perfectly, let Holder stall for over a year, then let Holder off the hook, by making his presidential "executive privilege" decree, since Holder has now been ORDERED, by the POTUS, to not comply with congress. Brilliant! Thus Obama is calling the bluff of congress, they can either try to impeach him, or go pound sand, as all other options are gone; except for MAYBE appointing a "special prosecutor", but that is very unlikely, since it would take until LONG after the election for anything to actually happen. Yes he did!

    Hey, why should we even try to stop the guns from walking? It's not like the US has been the source of 68,000 guns that have been discovered in cartel custody or anything. Oh way a minute ... it IS like that.

    Yes, internal, and I don't know where you posted a cite.
