Heads roll after Fast and Furious investigation
cbs ^ | 12/5/12 | Sharyl Attkisson

Besides Chait, McMahon, Gillett, Newell, Grindler, Voth and MacAllister; ten other Justice Department and ATF officials faulted by the Inspector General (IG) include:

Emory Hurley, the lead prosecutor with the Arizona U.S. Attorney's office assigned to Fast and Furious. The IG concluded Hurley's knowledge of "the clear public safety risk" being created by the suspects in Fast and Furious, who were allowed to continue to traffic in firearms for many months; should have prompted him to act urgently. Hurley was reportedly transferred out of the criminal division in the wake of the controversy.

Mike Morrissey, Hurley's supervisor at the U.S. Attorney's office, who was faulted for poor supervision.

Patrick Cunningham, former U.S. Attorney's office criminal chief, who was faulted for poor oversight. He resigned last January.

Dennis Burke, the Arizona U.S. Attorney who was faulted for poor oversight and lack of urgency. Burke resigned in August 2011.

Billy Hoover, ATF Deputy Director, who was faulted for deficient oversight and deficient response to the murder of Brian Terry. Hoover was reassigned in October 2011 in a post-Fast and Furious shakeup.

Kenneth Melson, former ATF Director, who was blamed for deficient oversight and failure to take appropriate action after Terry's murder. Melson resigned as head of ATF in August 2011, and was given a job at Justice Department headquarters. He resigned from that post when the IG report was released last September.

Monty Wilkinson, Holder's former deputy chief of staff. The IG faulted Wilkinson for failure to properly inform Holder about the link between Terry's murder and Fast and Furious.

F&F ping — more heads roll

Is there a vertical plan here, or is this a horizontal deal?

“The family of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry said in a statement today, “The news that an ATF disciplinary panel has recommended the firing of four senior managers found to be responsible for implementing the failed strategy of walking guns in the botched gun trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast & Furious is welcomed news. These officials lost sight of their primary mission which is to protect the American public and failed in their professional capacities as federal law enforcement officers.””

I hope this isn’t the last of Terry family statements.

“Don’t stop until you have HOLDER!”

AGREE, But don’t stop there. It goes up the ladder even more.

There is in my mind no doubt the conceptualist of this scam was none other than Hillary Clinton who did her usual spiel, outlined the program, and then walked off saying “you don’t know me”. “Never heard of me”. “I know nothing”. It’s her modus operandi.

My guess is .. it will end here.

We all know how the conversation / statemen(s) go ..

Yeah, OK .. throw 'em a couple of nametags and that should settle the noise down until it's all forgotten.

“faulted” ,.. “failed to notify” ,..”resigned” ~ and then they walk away ??
Subpoena them to testify , under oath , and see who else is accountable/responsible for this thuggery program.
Where is the penalty for threatening /coercing / prosecuting gun shop owners ?
What was the real purpose of this program , according to their belief ?
If this was an agenda driven pogrom by this administration, it goes further up the chain of command. How high ?
Subpoena them , under sworn oath , and have some accountability ! Justice demands it !

The way I see it the State of Arizona where these crimes occurred could and should issue a Warrant for Murder for each individual involved. Why don’t they? Under our Constitution the only recourse at the Federal Level could be a Presidential Pardon. A Federal Court cannot stop a State from trying someone for Murder. There are a whole hell of a lot of people in Prison across America after being convicted with a Lot Less Evidence, here we have Confessions.

Who signed off on the program? Who was the highest official who knew it was going on? Almost two years and those simple questions are not answered yet.
