    .................Ryan now becomes the 131st House GOP member to demand Holder’s resignation over the scandal.

Fast and Furious guns were used to kill U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on Dec. 14, 2010, in Peck Canyon, Ariz. Others whose murders have been connected to Fast and Furious weapons...

First, we are going to do everything we can to prevent the violence in Mexico from spilling over across the border. “And second, we will do all in our power to help President [Felipe] Calderón crack down on these drug cartels in Mexico.” Napolitano...

Richard Valdemar, a retired sergeant with the L.A.
