Top Department of Justice officials had extensive knowledge of and involvement in Operation Fast and Furious, claims a new report released Thursday, hours before Attorney General Eric Holder's scheduled testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
The report released by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, top lawmakers investigating the botched gunrunning operation, claims Justice Department officials in Washington and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were involved in the coordination in the early stages of the operation.

The Mexican government wants them for something like 300 murders too!
One count of selling a gun to an illegal alien. Maybe he should have claimed to be a part of `Fast and Furious’?
No trial should be held until after the election. Obama will just give him a full pardon.
I agree but after the election.
Hold on a minute there! I’d put a hold on holding Holder in contempt. Get him for lying!
Maybe Issa should hold his proceedings in Mexico and subpoena Holder there.
Yeah, but the Department of State was behind it.
Hillary... Holder... on top... behind... fast and furious...
Blecch, too many images.
Stop it! Just Stop It!. This was NOT a botched gunrunning operation. THIS WAS A CRIMINAL GUNRUNNING OPERATION. The criminals were Eric Holder and those at the BATFE and maybe even Obama. WE MUST PROSECUTE THESE PEOPLE OR WE ARE NO LONGER HAVE A LEGITIMATE JUSTICE SYSTEM OR ANY NOTION OF THE RULE OF LAW.
I think it’s worse than that. I think it was an intentional effort to arm the Sinaloa cartel.

Extradite Holder to Mexico to stand trial for murder.
Problem is, I just saw Grassly on the news and he said they wanted to know who authorized it so they could be “fired”. Gee, I bet they are scared.
Something I’m curious about: are these proceedings getting much attention in the Mexican media?
I certainly hope so, because it’ll take away a big chunk of hispanic votes for Zero when word gets around.
It certainly looks like that is the case, but what advantage would they get from doing that?
I doubt the Governor of Arizona is going to let any of Obama's criminal gang run loose.
He probably ought to be careful traveling to AZ again.
Holder lied, people died. Obama lied, people cry. I just sit and sigh and watch the nation die.
That's the part that no news organization wants to touch. Whether it's 50 or 500, nobody in the journalism business cares.
If the Sinaloa becomes the defacto monopoly, there should be less bloodshed due to no competitors.
The MSM is reacting ~ not covering up ~ they are really afraid of this one.
