Gunwalker is only the tip of a scandal iceberg
Washington Times ^ | October 12, 2011 | Robert Farago

On Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee subpoenaed the Department of Justice. "Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged," committee chairman Darrell E. Issa said.

"The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It's time we know the whole truth."

In fact, the committee's legal assault on the stone wall surrounding the Justice Department’s collusion with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is only a waypoint in an epic, ongoing battle to uncover a scandal that involves nearly a dozen federal agencies.

Yes, there’s a lot to investigate. But the latest subpoena does not go very deep and, given the time an investigation like this takes in the face of DoJ obfuscation, it seems unlikely anyone will get to the bottom of it all. The most we can hope for (and it’s still not likely) is that some token heads will roll. Holder’s is definitely on the chopping block but he may yet slither away.

Issa from a recent interview,

..They regret that it went badly, that two American agents are now dead, and countless Mexicans are dead, and 2,000 weapons, 1,600 of them are still unaccounted for. They regret it, but they’re probably still doing similar programs. And that’s why this is such a big thing...link

Yes, it’s beginning to look like we have our own little cartel sitting right smack in the middle of DOJ, DHS, ICE, DOS and, what’s the other one?

Oh, yeah - The White House.

I think Barak Hussein Obama (D-Goldman - Sachs) is running a criminal enterprise right under the nose of congress and the Judiciary.

They’re not going to stop until they think the Pubbies get serious. These a$$__l_s are extremely dumb narcissists, and they think the whole USA is a liquor store cash register.

Holder will NOT be taken down and that will be the end of it. The Lame Stream Media has, in its usual interest in the “truth”, has declared this NOT A SCANDAL.
What they declare to be “Not a scandal” will be treated by the Sound of Silence.

The media is focused on Occupy wall street, with a few exceptions. Issa is suppose to be on Greta tonight.

Yep unless Americans are fed a nightly barrage of scandal news they remain clueless

The MSM still controls the minds and hearts of the majority of Americans

I heard the tip of the iceberg theory a couple of months ago...when are they going to uncover the rest of the mass?

The author indicates, the investigation into the murder of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata is important

..... Zapata’s death is the proverbial loose thread. If Mr. Holder releases the intelligence, Mr. Issa could use it to unravel a wide range of illegal activities. Truth be told, there are at least half a dozen other black bag jobs that Mr. Holder’s Justice Department would dearly like to keep under wraps.

Any and all incriminating docs no longer exist, so now what? Prosecute for destruction of docs? Unless someone directly involved is willing to testify this will turn out to be a waste of Issa’s time and our money. Regarding someone willing to testify, I doubt there will be any willing souls at this juncture. It's dumb to expect our government to clean up crime when the government is filled with criminals.

I can’t believe the negativity on this thread. Every document was on a computer somewhere and hard drives even if erased can be “brought back”. Issa knows what he’s looking for.

I believe that not only Conservatives despise this Administration. I fully expect a number of whistle blowers will come out of the woodwork and provide plenty of information which will make the Obama crime syndicate more than just uncomfortable.
