But last Friday night's document dump by the Department of Justice only stirred the hornet's nest.
Michael A. Walsh at the New York Post sees it this way:
It was all a lie. The angry denials, the high dudgeon, the how-dare-you accuse-us bleating emanating from Eric Holder’s Justice Department these last nine months.
Operation Fast and Furious — the “botched” gun-tracking program run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — did, in fact, deliberately allow some 2,000 high-powered weapons to be sold to Mexican drug cartel agents and then waltzed across the border and into the Mexican drug wars — just as Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa, who are leading the congressional investigations, have charged all along.It's been nearly a year since bloggers Mike Vanderboegh and David Codrea began revealing details of Fast and Furious, and how the operation played part in the death of Border Agent Brian Terry.
It's past time Washington DC begins to hold all those responsible accountable.
