#2 Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, tells CBS News that the Justice Department did not notify Congress that a Fast and Furious firearm was found at the scene in Sinaloa.
Might explain why DoJ and State have said or appear to have done very little about the former Marine, Jon Hammer's detention in Mexico.
Might also explain the Champ's recent lament about.... "gun control being a complex issue". Now that the Gamez story is out however, he's media full-bore into the "Assault Gun Ban". Typical administration...."best defense is a good offense" strategy. Smooth operator, that Champ.

#3 I love how CBS spins it - "botched" operation. The operation worked exactly as planned! "Lost track of the weapons" that was the entire point! Nice job, mainstream media. Those evil Republicans, always wanting to prosecute people for innocent mistakes.

#4 This whole operation should have been enough to bring down and administration. Just shows how much the MSM, the federal machine, dhimocrats and the lack of Republican backbone have led to a coup d'état of our Republic.
Our founding fathers are rolling in their graves.

#5 When Holder was declared "In Contempt of Congress" over F&F but was not prosecuted, the jig was up. The Rule of Law was finished. They know it, we know it. It is what it is.

#6 Govmint illegal gun traffickers have gun control as an agenda? The trafficked guns end up murdering American and Mexican citizens and there is no outrage and fury by citizens and the press? Something's very wrong with this picture.

#7 "The trafficked guns end up murdering American and Mexican citizens and there is no outrage and fury by citizens and the press?"
I doubt most of the citizens know anything about it, John. And if the ones who vote D do know, it's overshadowed by dreaming up new stuff they can demand from those of us who actually work and pay taxes the gummint.
As for the press, it's not like anyone was killed who they actually know. >:-(
