Scandal: The attorney general once again pleads ignorance as some 40 Fast and Furious weapons are found at a Mexican drug lord's home. If the AG doesn't read memos, maybe he can read a subpoena.
After Eric Holder was involved in the pardoning of international fugitive Marc Rich, he confessed to not doing a thorough check of Rich's history and background. When he criticized Arizona's immigration law, SB1070, he admitted to not even reading the law. Now, with dead bodies and illegal weapons piled up high in Fast and Furious, Holder says he didn't read the memos.
Holder's "Sgt. Schultz" defense that he knew, saw and heard nothing about the ATF's gun-running operation does not wash with the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Darrell Issa.
On "Fox News Sunday" Issa said he plans to issue subpoenas that Holder and other top Department of Justice officials will have to read. On Friday, Holder reacted to calls for a special prosecutor and the fact that five weekly emails sent to him by Michael Walther, director of national drug intelligence, in July and August 2010 should have made him aware of the program and its problems.
"I do not and cannot read them from cover to cover," Holder said in a letter to Republican Reps. Issa and Lamar Smith and Sen. Chuck Grassley and Democrat Reps. Elijah Cummings and John Conyers and Sen. Patrick Leahy.
We assume Holder reads the morning paper and has heard of the 40 assault weapons illegally purchased under the Phoenix ATF's Fast and Furious operation that somehow wound up in the home of Sinaloa cartel enforcer Torres "the Jaguar" Marrufo. If he has, we suspect his reaction might have been akin to that of another famous sitcom character, Steve Urkel: "Did I do that?"

Terrorist chief Holder probably knew where the guns were, since his boys in the ATF were tracing them, ...right?
How much of a memo would you have to read to find out the most remarkable fact about an operation?
Under the laws of all 50 States AND the Federal Government Eric Holder is an accomplice to the murders of at least 200 Mexican citizens and at least 1 US Federal Agent.
Resignation is the least option on the table right now. To my mind multiple prosecutions under US and Mexican law are in order. Personally I’d let Mexico have first crack at him if they were to ask for his extradition.
The thought of Eric Holder spending the next 25 years in a Mexican prison warms my black heart through and through.
What these news stories and editorials fail to mention is WHY Holder, Obama, and Clinton were behind Fast and Furious.
It was a “Reichstag fire” style dirty trick that was supposed to convince congress to reinstate the “assault weapon” ban. It blew up in their faces and now innocent people are dead.
Forget Holder. Obama’s and H. Clinton’s dirty fingerprints are all over this one. They need to pay.
I'm inclined to believe him!
Interpol should be issuing a warrant for his arrest.
Like someone said the other day on FOX News, Holder is either lying or he is incompetent
Fast And Furious And Ugly
The State Dept. led DHS which led the DOJ which led ATF, the FBI, the DEA, ICE and the USBP but none of the heads of any of those agencies nor the Pres. had any idea what this super-multi-agency operation was about? Sure. lol
Helen Thomas was involved??????.......
next up Hillary what did she know and when did she know it? Did the State Dept authorized selling the weapons to Mexico or will that memo disappear along with the FBI files?
If they weren’t tracing the guns - and they weren’t - what was really going on?
That's the problem with this whole bunch: We're all inclined to believe that about everyone this guy puts in office. Thus, the beauty of all the moronic nominations Zero's ever made comes into view. They can all believably plead ignorance.
I think we were being prepped for another assault on the Second Amendment. I’ve thought that for a while now.
Has there been any link between the firearm used to kill the Air Guard members in Reno, NV and Fast and Furious firearms?
