    ‘Fast & Furious' operation: Justice probe clears Eric Holder

    What was that? I couldn't hear you over the gnashing of teeth coming from the conspiracy brigade!

    An internal Justice Department investigation into the Operation Fast and Furious scandal recommends discipline for 14 officials, but found no evidence that the department’s top leaders knew about the gun-walking aspect of the operation when it was underway.

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."

    I'm sure they'll just move onto the next ginned up "scandal".

    It's not exactly ginned up if 14 officials are recommended for discipline.

    Well if the Fast and Furious outrage was about justice sure...everybody agrees with the outcome and glad the issue was brought up.

    This tying it to Obama is the ginned up portion.

    Agreed. Investigation to be continued, like the Ruby Ridge and Waco debacles were continued after the Republicans took Congress in the nineties.

    Of course the AG refused to allow an independent counsel to conduct the investigation. But what the heck....let's just assume that the same department that determined 14 of its officials need to be disciplined conducted an honest investigation. lol

    What does that say about Holder's management? He didn't know what was going on and thus he is innocent? Instead of innocent, it seems more like incompetent. Incompetence is not a crime, but it is a shame.
