Why the rush to comment, Janet? It’s only been 14 months since Brian Terry’s death.

“Janet Napolitano said that “the key question” is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.””

The best way to make sure this doesn't happen again is to indict Eric Holder and all the other Obama Administration criminals who were involved in this.

Is Napolitano tossing Holder under the bus?

Hillary is giving it a pass and bowing out.
The State Dept has major dirt on the Justice dept.

Holder and Obama are guilty as sin.

Mistakes?

No it was part of the plan. The plan from 1600 Penn. Ave. to impose new gun controls because of the out of control trafficking along the Southern Border. But they did not expect to get caught cooking the books by doing the smuggling themselves.

Multi-Agency Coordination means plan from TOP.

THAT is where the investigation must go. To the TOP.

Next time they won't make the mistakes of not destroying the evidence and leaving live witnesses.

It was an intentional effort to undermine support for the 2nd Amendment. Heads need to roll. Well, at the least, jack booted thugs need to do hard time.

Holder and the ATF run a crazy program that circumvents the State dept on export of arms.

They never asked the state dept for approval.(they broke the law)

Then they got like 300 people dead, and all the while it was just to set a scenario to make some law abiding citizen in Tx look bad.

Holder should be in the Federal Pen

“”the key question” is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.”

...the key QUESTION? Does Napolitano speak English? Could she have meant the key GOAL? ... or the key CHALLENGE? ...etc...

Mistakes? (an amazingly inappropriate word in this situation)

This is the most corrupt and INEPT administration I can remember.

One of the mistakes was electing a crook like Obama and letting him hire another crook such as holder, and letting Obama hire crooked Janet Napolitano.

When John Kyl announced he would not seek re-election, ole fat Janet called home. I guess the message was, Janet, don’t call home and it will probably be safer not to call Arizona home.

The people of Arizona don’t like you.

Hillary has her own problems.

"Grenade-walking" part of "Gunwalker" scandal

And this...

Worse Than Gunwalker? State Dept. Allegedly Sold Guns to Zetas

Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:

Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.

(snip)

“They’ve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era,” Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor.

More about State Department involvement...

— has sources claiming “Obama’s man in the State Department,” (former) Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg, was the State Department operative who helped Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General David Ogden formulate the strategy that led to the tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious.

Steinberg took office as Deputy Secretary of State on January 28, 2009

A little more than two years later, it was announced that Steinberg's time in the Obama State Department was over. From the New York Times, 30 March 2011:

Mrs. Clinton heaped praise on Mr. Steinberg, describing him as an “indispensable” partner. “On every foreign policy challenge, big and small, he has helped formulate our policy and oversee its execution,” she wrote. Mr. Steinberg, she said, played “Oscar to Jack Lew’s Felix,” referring to Jacob J. Lew, her other deputy, who left earlier this year to become Mr. Obama’s budget director.

--------------------------

I AGREE WITH THAT

All Eric Holder did was lie to the Congress as to what he knew of Zer0's stratagem to illegally sell automatic weapons to Mexican drug smugglers in order to demonize American firearms dealers and gun owners.

Holder doesn't stray far from Berry, either in his actions or in his world-view.

A host of federal agencies - including the ATF, FBI, IRS, ICE, DEA and top officials at DHS - were all in the loop at various levels, as was the White House.

Considering the level of stupidity on display at DoJ-ATF, they might want to consider an insanity defense.

Congress should (but never will) impeach the Department heads involved and depending on his involvement take impeachment action against the President himself. Instead, he's running for re-election.

The piss-stream media ignores the gangster government's corruption on a daily basis now. Sad, real sad. Nothing to see here, folks, just move along. Ignore the dead bodies.

Holder2w
Your tax dollars at work under the Obama administration... It's fully paid for.

Have another muffin Eric.

Thank you, azishot. This has gone way beyond insane. This administration’s propaganda machine can’t crank it out fast enough. I think these people MUST take some kind of drugs before they face an audience or cameras. No one could lie like this consistently with a straight face.

Racist, fascist traitor trash that use their government power to abuse and cause the death of innocent people should be executed like the nazis at Nuremburg.

Their rotting corpses should be publicly displayed like Mussolini was to serve as a warning to others like them.

“...”the key question” is to make sure that the mistakes made “never happen again.””

One good way to do that would be to put Eric Holder in jail for aiding and abetting manslaughter. Other AG’s with think twice before running such a program.

"Napolitano: ‘Serious Mistakes Were Made’ With Operation Fast Furious"

The first mistake was when the American people elected a radical far left marxist to the Presidency... who then in turn appointed a radical far left manish apparition of a bull dike to head up the department of homeland security.
