    At the very least, the man should be fired and leave in disgrace. I think he should be investigated and if criminal negligence or his utter stupidity cost people lives (and I think there's been lots of Mexican citizens killed by these guns and at least one American that we know of so far), the man should be up on charges. Certainly there should be an investigation after he's fired... I'd like to know how they thought they'd work this ...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Holder is guilty of much more than this,and if Treason is out of the question how about accessory to murder of a Border Patrol Agent, for which he should face life without parole.

    Sorry bastard.

    I understand that you believe that Eric Holder is actually running a MexicanDrug Cartell. Do you think he has escaped to Mexico? Should we declare war and get him?!

    Already, at least one border agent has been killed by one of these weapons.

    Obama has claimed plausible deniability and says that Holder came up with the operation and ran it and Obama had no previous knowledge of the operation before one of the ATF agents blew the whistle on it.

    So, with the Attorney General running secret operations to sell US weapons to Mexican drug cartels for no beneficial reason resulting in the death of a border agent, what should be the consequences?
    I believe the idiots who thought it was a smart idea to sell weapons to criminals should be fired and sent to prison. The one thing law enforcement should not do is sell weapons to known criminals gangs especially those outside the US. I fail to see how bullet rifling pattern could be used to catch criminals in countries we have no jurisdiction in and countries whose governments are so corrupt that they are not going to give a squat about cartels buying so called illegal weapons.

    I have to wonder if this was used so that 2nd amendment opponents in the US can try to further **** on the 2nd amendment.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Should Eric Holder face charges?

    Eric Holder should be arrested and charged with crimes against American People and Mexican People, it seem that Obama believes its ok to let Mexico file a lawsuit against Arizona for upholding Laws that our useless Fed Government wont, yet Eric Holder and his band of thugs can allow people to die at the hands of illegal firearms in a program he had been warned not to attempt. Allowing a Mexican Lawsuit against Holder and the DOJ to go forward is only right at this point. Fire Eric Holder NOW. Obama and his entire administration are propelling this nation into lawlessness, these arrogant lying Marxist ideologues should be on trial. NOT running the country into the ground.
    Its become quite apparent to most Americans that this Admin cares not one iota for our Laws and Constitution. I certainly hope Americans from all over the country step forward to fight this criminal subterfuge that is being perpetrated against the nation. DAMN them ALL.

    Re: Should Eric Holder face charges?

    Man, the crazy comes out earlier and earlier lately. This was an operation gone-wrong. It happens. At least we're making a concerted effort to investigate and discover the inner workings of Mexican drug cartels. The Mexican government is doing little, if anything. In the 90s and 2000s both Clinton and Bush authorized the sale of guns to Mexican army and police forces. These guns ended up in the hands of cartels through force and defection. Should we go after both of their attorneys general, too? We're going to have some pretty big tragedies while we try to make these cartels impotent. We aren't always going to succeed. And lives on both sides will be lost because of it.

    I'm not happy with the outcome of this operation. It sounds like there was a top-down failure that indirectly led to the death of a border agent. But let's not kid ourselves here. If those guns had never been sold as part of the operation the asshole who shot our border agent would have acquired a weapon some other way.

    Prosecuted? No. Fired? It should have happened already.
