Ping for VISIBILITY.

Gives a good overview of the pieces and the time scale of this malicious program.

As I read on here last week, failing governments in the ultimate act of desperation will go to war. In this case, I hope it’s not our gummint going to war against the populace - but I’m more and more thinking that may be a vain hope.

This letter from Issa to Holder is for the history books. Read it all. Issa b-slaps Holder over and over, and ends it with, "YOU OWN IT."

This is exactly what is needed. This guy (Holder) needs to be pushed right up against the wall. He will react badly to this and that is exactly what is needed.

Holder himself is a radical and his true colors are just beneath a very carefully fracted, but very thin venier.

We should all be supporting Issa. ..let him know his efforts appreciated. ALL our Repubs should be echoing outrage. Passing this off as 'political witchunting' is Holder's only - and most disgusting - defense.

Corruption oozes from these people; we must get to the truth; and they must pay whatever politcal/legal price required.

Obama, Inc. collectively- and continually - acts without accountability of any kind.

. . .and the man 'who would be King' may as well be.

Unless and until Issa, Grassley et al start to question exactly WHY F&F and any other such operations were started in the first place, it is ALL just political theater.

This administration had drawn a bead on the Second Amendment and the GOP is far too cowardly to even approach this subject.

Yowsah~!!

If this letter to Holder from Issa was sent (and released to the public) this morning then Holder is NOT destined for a very good future.

This letter, in effect, calls him a liar and a$$hole to his face

Go read it- this is incredible!!!

Whatever motivation there might have been for running guns to Mexico, there is also this: The more violent Mexico becomes, the less likely illegal immigrants are to return, and the more likely they are to stay here and vote in the next election [on the democrat ticket, one supposes].

Thousands of innocents have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico; it is a revolution on our doorstep. I believe the current admin has blood on its hands.

Hence my recurring question:

If Holder & the Obama were not aware of F&F, why are they not now demanding the heads of those who were?

Holder should be arrested and extradited to Mexico and let them them have first crack at him...and after that, send him to Arizona and let the sheriffs work him over. If anything is left, send him to Congress.

If there was a Republican in the White House this letter would be printed on the front page of the NYT, WashPost, and be the lead news item on the ABCCBSNBCPBS news consortium tonight...

Thank goodness there are alternative news outlets nowadays.

“Following this briefing, it is clear that Grindler did one of two things. Either, he alerted you to the name and operational details of Fast and Furious, in which case your May 3, 2011 testimony in front of Congress was false; or, he failed to inform you of the name and the operational details of Fast and Furious, in which case Grindler engaged in gross dereliction of his duties as Acting Deputy Attorney General. It is fair to infer from the fact that Grindler remains as your Chief of Staff that he did not engage in gross dereliction of his duties and told you about the program as far back as March of 2010.”

To wit: that Grindler is still working for Holder is presumptive evidence Holder knew and approved of F&F.

“If Holder & the Obama were not aware of F&F, why are they not now demanding the heads of those who were?”

Like OJ finding the “real” killers of his wife?

The race card will let Holder and Obama skate on this, too.

The NBP voting rights case is the most egregious abuse of the rights of a race of people by a government since the 1930s, yet no prosecution there.

This is just a bad sequel of the failure of America to bust Clinton for his crimes in the 90s.

I give Issa a ton of credit on this.
In the first few weeks after info on Fast and Furious started coming out I really thought that this was a scandal that was going nowhere. It was obvious to me that the press was going to ignore it. Instead Issa has used his power to drag a reluctant MSM kicking and screaming toward a legitimate news story! I’m impressed!

That’s exactly why Issa should have enacted a surprise document seizure of the DOJ. He may have already done it but we won’t ever know. People involved will start resigning/retiring and this whole thing will just go away.

Looks like Issa and Obama has decided who to throw under
the bus. I doubt anything will come of this. Holder will
get a slap on the wrist like Clinton and Berger. Just like
with Clinton, you’ll know when someone starts to get too
close when the body count skyrockets.

Please contact Rep Issa through his Rep. Issa House Contact Email Form and let him know of your support and concerns. Yes, they do reply on important items from outside their districts.

Please pass this along to any F&F Ping lists. Thanks.

Remember at the end of the movie The Shawshank Redemption ( good movie, but, I could care less about the actor's political views ) when they come and arrest the bully/thug prison guard who terrorized everyone ? he started to cry like a girl.
Why do I see Eric Holder crying like a girl once they come and arrest him and he drops a dime on everyone ?

Hey Obama ? your YO Boy Eric Holder is going to snitch on you and everyone who played a part in Fast & Furious.

Mr. Attorney General, you have made numerous statements about Fast and Furious that have eventually been proven to be untrue. Your lack of trustworthiness while speaking about Fast and Furious has called into question your overall credibility as Attorney General. The time for deflecting blame and obstructing our investigation is over. The time has come for you to come clean to the American public about what you knew about Fast and Furious, when you knew it, and who is going to be held accountable for failing to shut down a program that has already had deadly consequences, and will likely cause more casualties for years to come.

Yea right, That’s what they were saying when Sandy Berger
got caught stealing and destroying classified documents
during the investigation of the deadliest and most
destructive terrorist attack in American history. He’ll
loose his job, his law license (if he has one) and get a
small fine.
