The chairman of a House committee investigating the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation praised a report by the Justice Department's Office of Inspector General on what went wrong in the bungled investigation but said more people involved need to lose their jobs.
Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, who heads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, on Thursday described the 471-page report by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz as extremely comprehensive, strong and independent, adding that it confirms what the panel knew for some time: The Department of Justice has let the American people down. Mr. Issa called the botched Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigation a breach of the public trust, saying it contributed to the December 2010 killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry and the deaths of countless innocent Mexican citizens.
He said all 14 people named in the report for sanctions or disciplinary action should find new occupations, adding that when mistakes of this magnitude occur, senior officials must be held accountable.

Gunwalker / Murdergate ping.
More officials, starting with Holder, Obama, and Clinton, the organizers.
And the President of Mexico needs a slap on the wrist for actively cooperating with them in their plan to kill the Second Amendment.
Nothing in this report vindicates anyone, Mr. Issa said.
Need to lose their jobs is nowhere near actually being shown the door.
No, no, no. Some bureaucrat losing his job is not enough. Real people died as the result of this Fast and Furious scheme. This is the worst scandal in the history of the Republic. The people responsible need to be indicted and sent to federal prisons for life.
