    This might be a big one. If we and others can keep this story in the limelight it might just be a small turning point.

    This story has more legs than we are reading or hearing. The question that needs to be asked is how high up did this go? I would have to think that the AG would have known that this was going on, and if that is the case I would believe that Obama knew as well. If this is the case, the blood is on their hands and they should be held accountable. The reality though is that some schmuck is going to be the fall guy and they are going to lose their job and retirement and the real culprits are going to go about their business of trying to take legal weapons out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

    There is no way that I believe that Holder did not know about this,and very possibly the POTUS,I'm sure he woulda thunk it was a great idea.Like everything else the higher ups will be circling wagons and throwing underlings under the bus to save themselves

    It was a Mickey Mouse operation from the moment it was conceived. All those responsible should be held accountable but I agree that some open mouthed breather will be thrown in front of the bus and the higher ups will continue to drink from the cup of the untouchables.

    I doubt this will ever make it to the Pres. At best, Holder will take one for Obama.
    But, did Obama know? You betcha!

    Like with Ruby Ridge and Waco, those truly responsible will never be punished. Only the whistleblowers and others who resisted will take the blame.

    Looked good on paper though. Engineers of all types are the same. No concept of real world conditions.

    Yup, it will be typical Govt' SOP. I would at least hope that the "take one for the team" guy at least gets a discrete financial payoff in the form of an offshore bank account number.
