39. What we want is answers
Edited on Sat Oct-15-11 08:06 AM by one-eyed fat man
This was not a rogue operation of one field office of the ATF. Newell, the Agent in Charge, when the street agents complained about letting the smugglers cross the border, told them the operation had been cleared up the chain to Washington. Unlike you, they knew there could be no sting without surveillance. No matter how many times and by how many people it has been pointed out to you, you steadfastly refuse to acknowledge the fatal flaw in the whole Fast and Furious operation.

So who approved it? The Director of the ATF said it came from above him. Who does ATF work for? Justice. Who is the AG? Holder.

The FBI had some involvement, they do the NICS checks. ATF has dealers to make sales to straw buyers and the FBI dummies the NICS checks. Who does the FBI work for? Justice. Who is the AG? Holder

He's got some 'splaining to do, Lucy.

Field agents have risked their careers going to the media with their complaints. The Director of the ATF points the finger at Justice and is "reassigned." The US Attorney for Arizona is forced to resign. The NSA staffer in the White House who was getting back channel briefings from Newell is suddenly transferred to Iraq.

Why do you not only keep acting like you were born at night, but that it was last night?
