GOP report: Justice officials were on top of Fast and Furious (Holder lied, prepare the prison)
Fox News ^ | 2/2/2012 | By William La Jeunesse & Laura Prabucki

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.

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.

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.

"top lawmakers investigating the botched gunrunning operation, "

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 guess Issa just didn't get the Dem's memo: There is no evidence against top Justice officials. /HEAVY SARC

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.

So, either Holder and Zero get the axe, or we have a war with MExico. Wow. Which will it be Congress? America? Games games games... this is so stupid. Who are we going to make it pay?

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?

Obama can pardon them until the cows came home. The crimes were committed in Arizona and violated state laws as well.

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 cares. A number of them will be on the extradition list ~ they were publishing articles about this program BEFORE it started. They KNEW!

The MSM is reacting ~ not covering up ~ they are really afraid of this one.
