Default Fast and Furious Report Card

Fast and Furious Report Card

"Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people." --John Adams

Ignorance is Holder's only defense

The report card is in for the Obama Justice Department and its "Fast and Furious" gunrunning operation, and the grade is an "F." Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his 500-page report this week, and, citing a "pattern of serious failures," it calls for 14 officials at the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to be reviewed for possible disciplinary action. Will we finally see the accountability we've been waiting for?

As our readers well know, Operation Fast and Furious resulted in thousands of American guns "walking" across the border to Mexican drug cartels under the not-so-watchful eyes of the ATF. Those guns were used to murder hundreds of Mexican citizens, as well as U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata. The report is no less harsh on Operation Wide Receiver, a similar program begun under the Bush administration, though we're not aware of a body count for Wide Receiver, which unlike Fast and Furious was run with the close cooperation of Mexican authorities.
