    Updating Article on "Fast-N-Furious"



    http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012...nwalking-plan/


    “Our investigation made clear that the failures within ATF, which included a long term strategy in Operation Fast and Furious that was fully supported by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, were systemic and not due to the acts of only a few individuals,” (.pdf) wrote Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Those conclusions partially vindicate what Holder’s defenders have long maintained, that the botched gun-walking operation was isolated to the ATF Phoenix Field Division and then-U.S. attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke. The report also doesn’t go as far as Holder’s critics would have liked.

    Looks like Obama got someone to fall on the sword. We will never know how far up it went.

    Personally, I don't think it made it's way up to Holder or Obama. That would mean either was actually engaged in the goings on of the various departments at the DoJ and I think Holder is more concerned about protecting coercive Black Panthers, intimidating folks at polling places, than he is about a gun running operation.

    The book is closed on this one.
