    Serious management failures at the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are detailed in an internal-watchdog report on the botched Fast and Furious operation against gun traffickers.
    At 600 plus pages it ought to be interesting tomorrow.

    Why is Gunrunner not mentioned in any of the incessantly repetitive campaign ads we are being subjected to?

    Fox news is just now reporting that a top official has already resigned as a result of the report.

    Ya think?

    Choices, decisions, ramifications, blowback control, spin: none of it worked well.

    If you really think this went no higher than the top much guy in the listed 14 you are alot more trustworthy than I am. Holder is hoping give the people 14 will cool off the push for his hide. My thought is this started with Holder or even higher and if not with Watergate was it not the cover-up that got Nixon. Holder has done nothing but cover-up since this whole thing broke.

    A few underlings hop under the bus, and Holder gets absolved of any and all wrong-doing. Why, why, why is this not a campaign issue?

    Quote; "Among his findings, he said that Attorney General Eric Holder wasn't aware of the tactics being used in the operation until early 2011"

    YA RIGHT!

    And if this is the case (writing this as I am laughing) then he isn't doing his job.
