'Fast and Furious' Probe Clears Holder, Faults ATF and Justice
By PIERRE THOMAS, JACK CLOHERTY and JASON RYAN | ABC OTUS News – 14 hrs ago
Operation "Fast and Furious," the controversial undercover operation that allowed U.S. guns to be walked into Mexico, was a "risky strategy" that did not "adequately take into account the significant danger to public safety that it created."
That was the conclusion today from the Office of the Inspector General, Department of Justice, after an investigation that spanned more than a year and a half.
The OIG investigation found that Attorney General Eric Holder was not aware of the strategy and tactics used in "Fast and Furious," and turned up no evidence that Holder or other top DOJ officials tried to cover up the operation, or mislead Congress about it. Holder was held in contempt of Congress earlier this year for allegedly withholding documents about DOJ's "Fast and Furious" investigation from congressional investigators.
In a statement today, Holder said, "It is unfortunate that some were so quick to make baseless accusations before they possessed the facts about these operations -- accusations that turned out to be without foundation and that have caused a great deal of unnecessary harm and confusion."
So there you have it, tax payers. After investigating themselves, refusing document requests from Congress, Obama sealing everything up and impeding independent investigation, they've determined they did nothing wrong and aren't responsible. Can you believe this crap? After reading the article, everyone taking the rap for this has stepped down, retired or "feels bad". Not surprisingly, noone will be charged with anything and there will be no justice for the family of Brian Terry or the countless families in Mexico affected by this. Also not surprising is that they admit they did it, for all to see, in their statements as a slap to the face of every American.
These thugs are so in your face corrupt that they no longer care. Panetta and the joint chiefs summarily dismissing Congress, Holder and his thugs at the DOJ gun running and putting American lives at risk to get anti-gun legislation passed, Napolitano and her frat house at DHS and TSA goons groping you where the sun don't shine. All lorded over by their fraud in chief and his executive orders, unconstitutional bills and secret death panels.
