“But many are cynical careerists, bureaucrats,who will quickly reorganize their priorities when something goes wrong, so as to protect their careers (and pensions) first. Especially if forfeiture or jail time may be involved. More was at play here than process gone awry. “

Pshaw! When was the last time a “public sector employee” had to forgo his pension and perks because of wrongdoing? These twits and their handlers are all on power trips they are reluctant to give up. And, I’m sure, there’s a little extra cash greasing their palms.

As long as this case is about the smuggling of guns by straw buyers, and not the intentional or irresponsible placing of guns into the hands of criminals, the real crimes go unaddressed and unpunished.

Most of the Fast and Furious purchases were in the range of 5-to-10 at a time,
enough to raise suspicion to any seller under ordinary circumstances.

Ahhhh, yup! That's how the ATF found out about most of these straw buyers.

One main point that everyone overlooks.

F&F was piggybacked on a plan from the Bush years they new did not work.

F&F was started with the idea of blaming Bush if caught.

When you create a defense before the fact, it’s kind of tough to make a claim you didn’t know you were committing a crime.
