26. let the flames begin
I wish Obama would call for Holder's resignation.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is in some hot water over operation "Fast and Furious," the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives botched gun trafficking sting.

Last week, U.S. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith wrote a letter to President Barack Obama asking that he appoint a special counsel to investigate whether Holder lied when he testified before Congress about"Fast and Furious," and now California Congressman Darrell Issa is placing responsibility for the fed's faux-pas directly on Holder's shoulders.

In a letter Issa wrote to Holder, released yesterday, the congressman tells the AG "Whether you realize yet or not, you own Fast and Furious. It is your responsibility."

See Issa's letter in its entirety here.

Issa already has said he wants Holder to return to Congress to give sworn testimony because he is frustrated with what he calls "a roving set of ever-changing explanations to justify involvement in this reckless and deadly program."
