WASHINGTON Top Justice Department officials largely dismissed a new House Republican report on the Fast and Furious gun-tracking operation, saying Tuesday that they have moved ahead with major reforms to prevent future incidents of U.S. firearms being lost and smuggled across the border into Mexico.
Further, the attorney for the ATF special agent in charge in Phoenix, who oversaw Fast and Furious, lashed out at Republican congressional leaders, calling their report a "political witch hunt" aimed less at finding fault than pinning Democrats with negative political fallout from Fast and Furious.
The report by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, and Sen. Charles E. Grassley, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, concluded that five supervisors at the federalBureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were collectively responsible for Fast and Furious, which allowed about 2,500 weapons to be illegally purchased in Arizona.

In other words, the DOJ will continue to ignore Congress.
Hopefully, after Romney wins, Holder and others will be brought up on charges under the new AG’s watch.
Nothing the see here, peons.
Go back to your lives.
Yep they have now moved on to sending Al Qeada rebels in Syria shoulder fired missiles.
wAKE UP AMERICA!
Liars, deceivers and thieves.
Were is the accountability for violations and for those that died in this government sponsored scheme?
Where are the resignations?
Where are the criminal charges?
The 8 dollar an hour Jack in the Box employee can get fired for failing to show up for a work shift or asking a co-worker for a date.
Those in government sent hundreds of weapons into the violent corrupt black hole of Mexico, many were killed including U.S. citizens by these weapons.
Where is the GD accountability for these reckless, lunatic deadly policies and operations?
Where are the criminal charges?
Hopefully!!.........LMAO....are you interested in buying a bridge in Brooklyn.....have i got a deal for you!
Jail the guilty SOBs..........at GITMO.
There, got it back to RINO/GOP-E policy for you.
There’s a lot more to F&F than is being put out by Issa or anyone else. That information will be coming out soon enough.
Issa better hope he’s not playing their game. If he won’t follow through all the way to the end, he’ll shoulder responsibility and blame as well as Holder and Obama and others.
There are other people out there that know a lot more about F&F than what is published. They will be speaking out.
Please let it be J. Christian Adams
“Censure and move on...”
The arrogance of those in government, while many died, directly due to their reckless deadly policies and operations, have reached a pinnacle.
They arrest kids for bringing a plastic knifes in their lunches to school, while those in government send hundreds of weapons into the violent corrupt black hole of Mexico, resulting in many dead, including our own border agents.
Yet no criminal charges?
Where are the criminal charges for those behind these reckless deadly government schemes?
She did, however, credit the report for acknowledging that the idea for "gun walking" allowing illegal weapons sales on the border originated under the Republican administration before her boss, Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr., took office in 2009.Bush's fault.
good analogy by the way, toothless dogs mostly just lay around and suck down handouts.
Only he said/she said quotes.
Typical when Dems are involved in wrongdoing.
In all seriousness, is there any reason anyone in this country should pay any attention or mind to John Boehner and crew?
We gave him and his worthless party a super majority, and the only thing they have done with it is make congress absolutely meaningless.
