We have seen the future, and it sucks.

A Justice Dept. ‘Fast & Furious’ coverup?

29th July 2011

Read it.

In a series of hearings, Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley have been systematically dismantling the administration’s preposterous claim that no one in the Justice Department — which oversees the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — knew anything about the so-called gun-tracking operation.

In Fast and Furious, ATF officials encouraged “straw buyers” in Arizona — including two convicted felons who should have been stopped by the FBI — to purchase more than 2,000 heavy-duty firearms, including AK-47 variants and .50-caliber sniper rifles, and then resell them to the Mexican drug cartels, allegedly to trace and stop crossborder arms trafficking.
