    Great... Holder gets to assign someone even more anti gun rights... and find other ways to "work under the radar."

    O knew about Gun Walker/Fast and Furious... why hasn't he been re-assigned?
    Holder knew about it, why isn't he getting unemployment?
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    If he had initiated this fiasco on his own I believe they would have had no problem with firing him. The fact that they are doing this to protect him tells me that he was following orders from someone higher up.

    Whatever happened to "The Buck Stops HERE" ??? Now it's "volunteer to be my scapegoat, or get re-assigned anyway."

    I'd love to see Mexico file arrest warrants and extradition proceedings against everybody that was involved in allowing the Illegal importation of firearms into their country

    No one in that high a position ever loses their job. They end up with a lateral transfer to another area, likely with same grade of pay and benefits in order to get them out of sight, out of mind.

    The only ones to ever lose a job will be the low end rank and file.

    Corruption at the highest level is the order of the day. Many of those involved should be inside a prison cell. A Mexican prison cell at that.

    I understand what you are getting at. But I have yet to understand how WE can be responsible for ALLOWING guns into THEIR country. Do they not even check the southbound lanes? Or do they expect us to do that too? Don't they have some responsibility there too?

    I'm not sure I'd consider this a demotion. Head of Forensics at DOJ?
    Wanna bet he didn't take a pay cut?
    Nice and close to Eric Holder, so he can keep an eye on him if he decides to spill the beans.

    Not exactly a copy of the home game and lovely parting gifts.
    .......and safer if Obama is gone in a couple years. Why can the head of Forensics? Melson has a job for life.
