Isn't it about time this guy gets a pink slip?
"...The subpoenaed documents could show who made the fateful decisions to allow assault weapons and military-grade sniper rifles to be “walked” into Mexico.
Issa says given the structure of the Justice Department, the decisions were likely made by top-ranking officials, potentially even Attorney General Eric Holder himself."
Eric Holder has made some terrible (and disgusting) decisions over the past two years. Examples...his willingness to bring the 9/11 terrorists to America for trial, his refusal to cooperate in the investigation of the Black Panther voter intimidation case, his forcing the Dayton Police Force to lower it's hiring standards, his prosecuting CIA agents, and now the smuggling of guns into Mexico. I'm sure I've missed a few.House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican is threatening to begin contempt proceedings if the Justice Department doesn’t start providing documents about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious. But what’s the controversy about? And what could the documents show?
In Project Gunrunner, ATF allowed American guns – including AK-47 assault rifles and military-grade, .50 caliber sniper rifles – to be smuggled into Mexico and sold to drug cartels, with the goal of tracking the weapons after they’ve been used.
It's time for him to go...and maybe his assistant, too.
UPDATE 7/9/11:"Operation Fast and Furious" is being investigated now and I've found a great post that covers many of the videos as it unfolds. Check it out at Pronk Palisades Blog.
