The union that represents Border Patrol agents in Southern Arizona and around the country called today for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to resign.
The National Border Patrol Council cited Holders alleged dishonesty about Operation Fast and Furious in making the call. That ATF-led operation put guns from Arizona in the hands of Mexican organized-crime groups, and two of those guns were found at the scene west of Rio Rico where Agent Brian Terry was shot to death in December 2010.

For your list.
Everybody needs to call on him to resign.
It’s a start, and it’s a union.
Let’s see if this gains National media attention. When Bush’s AG Alberto Gonzales resigned it captured every major News stations top story headline.
The Democrats led a witch hunt like no other...let’s see how they handle this with Holder.
here are a few comments from the Gonzales resignation by the Democrats...let’s see if they have the same balls to go after the despicable and incompetent Eric Holder!
Earlier this month, at a news conference, Mr. Bush dismissed accusations that Mr. Gonzales had stonewalled or misled a Congressional inquiry. Were watching a political exercise, Mr. Bush said. I mean, this is a man who has testified, hes sent thousands of papers up there. Theres no proof of wrong.
But Democrats cheered Mr. Gonzaless departure. Alberto Gonzales was never the right man for this job, said Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the majority leader. He lacked independence, he lacked judgment, and he lacked the spine to say no to Karl Rove.
Senator Charles E. Schumer, the New York Democrat who sits on the Judiciary Committee and has been calling for Mr. Gonzaless resignation for months, said this morning: It has been a long and difficult struggle, but at last the attorney general has done the right thing and stepped down. For the previous six months, the Justice Department has been virtually nonfunctional, and desperately needs new leadership.
Senator Schumer said that Democrats will not obstruct or impede a nominee who we are confident will put the rule of law above political considerations.
Per my post above...Holder is doing the exact opposite of what Gonzales did and that is Holder is NOT cooperating.
Eric Holder is an accomplice to murder.
I especially like this quote.
My thoughts exactly.
Holders resignation is fine, but I want a copy of his booking photo, as well as one for every corrupt bastard involved in this criminal enterprise.
“Eric Holder is an accomplice to murder.”
Yes, he certainly is.
His resignation damn well better not stop further investigation/charging and criminal prosecution of that scum and all of those involved in this criminal conspiracy.
The NBPC isn’t typical of unions.
