    Holder: 'Fast and Furious' tactics will not be tolerated

    Full article:

    Holder: 'Fast and Furious' tactics will not be tolerated - CNN.com


    From the peanut gallery-

    "I want to be clear: Any instance of so-called 'gun walking' is unacceptable," Holder said of weapons smuggling, later adding: "This operation was flawed in its concept, and flawed in its execution." -so is he coming around?

    "Unfortunately we will feel its effects for years to come, as guns that were lost during this operation continue to show up at crime scenes both here and in Mexico," Holder said. "We are losing the battle to stop the flow of illegal guns to Mexico."
    Holder defended his own actions, reminding the panel he called for the inspector general to examine the so-called Operation Fast and Furious and issued a directive that "gun-walking" was illegal and should never be repeated. The resulting report may be concluded before the end of the year.
    -nope. You don't win when you score for the other team. A directive? That should fix things.

    Holder made a plea to the committee for strengthening the authority of the ATF to detect and disrupt illegal gun trafficking, and urged full funding for the ATF to combat gun-running.
    -um, yeah. Don't you already have that? I have faith that you will do better next time.

    -It says something about a department when the AG needs to specifically tell his people that committing felonies is unacceptable.

    The problem with people like Holder is that they don't see anything wrong with what they are doing wrong. This isn't a left or right problem. It's a human moral problem. It's a leadership problem too and that leads us right up to the White House.

    There is nothing more patriotic, or more traditionally American, Ladies and Gentlemen, than a scandal that leads to the White House.!

    Holder should be held accountable for crimes against Americans.

    A public hanging might work.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    WOW!! 64k of the 94k recovered guns traced back to US sources. Wonder how many of them were initially sold to the Mexican Gov't (or other agencies around the globe)? I'd love to see the breakdown of those numbers.
