    "Appear to indicate"? Sounds legit.

    Release all the documents and we can see more than appearing to indicate. Because ya know, Holder would never selectively leak to divert heat from himself would he?

    Later previously disclosed documents — from September 2007, well into the investigation that started in early 2006 — show that ATF officials were coordinating with Mexican authorities but they were unsuccessful in intercepting traffickers crossing the border and allowed weapons to flow into Mexico. Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged that officials worked with Mexican officials during Operation Wide Receiver.

    WOW, even Holder admitted coordination during Wide Receiver...this is fun!

    No, they alerted Mexican authorities AFTER the guns were lost.

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."

    So if I understand your argument you assert that Wide Receiver only contacted the Mexican authorities AFTER guns walked which is BAD...and FnF never contacted the Mexican authorities and this is GOOD?...

    The differences between Wide Receiver and Fast & Furious is that the Mexicans were informed before the guns were walked in the former operation, and the WR guns had chips in them for location.

    No, what I'm saying is that they were both bad. Obviously it doesn't help the Mexicans a whole lot to tell them, "err, by the way, we let about five hundred assault weapons slip into your country ... and they're probably in the hands of the drug cartels. Sorry!"

    No, they weren't. At least not for the first year of the operation.
