Holder is so Busted. Double dose of Holder

WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder suggested Thursday that weapons lost during the course of the failed “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation will continue to show up at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico “for years to come.”
Holder, in testimony on Capitol Hill that comes as the congressional investigation into the program expands, decried the “gun-walking” tactic used in the operation as “inexcusable” and “wholly unacceptable.” But a day after an influential senator called for the resignation of one of Holder’s top deputies over the scandal, Holder denied department leaders played any role in the crafting of “Fast and Furious.”

Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.

In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the “big fish.” But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called “gunwalking,” and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called “Demand Letter 3”. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or “long guns.” Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information.

Good question Grouchy! America wants to know why he and obama have not both been removed. You know it goes straight to the top. Along with all of the other violations of our Constitution that have been committed by these two criminal thugs.

Heard part of his testimony…can’t believe how easy it is for some people to lie. Just astounding.

You know the old saying about cream rising to the top? Well, scum rises to the top, too. Scum is the yucky stuff that is removed and discarded.
Time we remove and discard the scum who has risen to the top at the Dept of Justice.

Sen. Grassley still seems intent on the truth but Rep. Issa seems to be backing down. Are honesty and responsibility too much to hope for?
I’m not looking for partisan politics, I’m asking for the truth and I’m hoping that there are consequences.

Issa was hoping Holder would confess to ordering the Code Red like in A Few Good Men… now he has to go after him for perjury before Congress.

Although, techically, going “Gosh, I really realy didn’t like what we did and thinks it’s icky-bad, too!” without admitting anything actionable doesn’t leave much room for action.

There was talk about certain people being bribed to either shut up or knuckle down in return for favors. Nancy Pelosi and Darrell Issa were mentioned and NP seems to be very silent lately and DI may be knuckling down by kinda sorta not quite going for the jugular. Should you be interested his bio is quite mad. He seems to have a weak spot for fast cars. He most definitely is quite the lad. Nothing is off limits it would seem nowadays in Congress. If I didn’t know that God is in control I would be going nuts right… Read more »
