A bombshell report released Wednesday on Operation Fast and Furious faulted a range of federal agencies for the failed anti-gunrunning program and accused officials in charge of a "disregard" for public safety. In the wake of the report, one Justice Department official resigned.

The report says Attorney General Eric Holder was not made aware of potential flaws in the program until February of last year

Do these criminals think we are as stupid as the idiots that elected their boss? IIRC, Holder was telling congress back in March he didn't know anything about it. Stalling, stone-walling, obfuscating and lying. Ass banging jail for the scapegoat and when he howls enough give him a chance to drop a dime on Holder. I hope we get the full congress and executive November. The entire DOJ needs to be investigated and cleaned the heck out.

“The report says Attorney General Eric Holder was not made aware of potential flaws in the program until February of last year.”

This is going to be hard to square with the need to envoke Executive Privelege on ALL documents.

The criminals ARE the federal government bureaucrats. The best way to control that is to prosecute and incarcerate them so they can’t do it again. That goes right to the heart of the problem instead of writing laws to restrict the freedom of citizens who had no part in their criminal enterprise. Defunding and eliminating the criminal bureaucracies themselves is the right piece of legislation to prevent a repeat of the bad behavior.

And the White House's claim of Executive Privilege?

Damned decent of Weinstein to fall on his sword to shield Witholder and Øbongo.

He may not fall on the sword, might be worthwhile to keep an electronic eye on the balances in his bank accounts for a while!

They get a few scapegoats and easy marks and they ignore Holder.

They ignore the fact that fast & Furious was made to coincide with Obama trying to make it look like the United States was responsible for gun going into Mexico,when i fact the Government was supplying them.

I’m sure there wasn’t any pressure on the Inspector General to exonerate Holder. /s

I hope that this will not keep the House from continuing their investigation. In fact, now that the DOJ "investigation" is completed, Holder should have no problem releasing ANYthing that the House wants . . . right?

He won’t blow the whistle, because this administration is even more thugish than the previous Dem administration. It originated in Chicago, did it not? Remember Vince Foster?

Investigation finds widespread misconduct in ‘Fast and Furious’

Only found misconduct after spending hundreds of millions of dollars and years of investigation.

But misconduct so widespread only resulted in one resignation my guess will full retirement and many others promoted and having higher pensions.

This isn’t so hard to believe.

I mean, next time you get accused of Murder, Arson, Wetting the Bed etc, just tell the Police to stand by, you will launch your own investigation and get back to them when you get some results.

Yea, that should work....

Better yet, when Romney wins, just tell the ‘thieves in charge of the different henhouses’ that he wants to retain them in their present jobs so the transition will be real smooooooooth.

That will keep them from going to a country with no extradition laws while they are being completely probed and eventually prosecuted.

Multi Agency projects don’t just happen spontaneously, all have top bosses approving and guiding them, obviously all they are doing is throwing people under the bus to protect Holder and his Boss.

He’s not going to jail. He’ll land a cushy job somewhere. He’ll keep his mouth shut.

“He’s not going to jail. He’ll land a cushy job somewhere. He’ll keep his mouth shut.”

Absolutely. This guy already has some dream gig out West totally funded by a Dem super donor.

Resigning in disgrace used to be disgraceful. Whatever.

He won’t say a word unless they prosecute him. I hope that a Romney AG has the ballz to do it. But we know the answer to that.
