    A long-awaited report on the U.S. government’s controversial gun-trafficking operation known as “Fast and Furious” released Wednesday found no evidence that Attorney General Eric Holder knew of the botched effort to trace the flow of guns to Mexico’s drug cartels prior to its public unraveling in January 2011.

    The report by the Justice Department’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz said there is "no evidence that ... Holder was informed about Operation Fast and Furious, or learned about the tactics employed by ATF in the investigation" before Congress began pressing him for information about it in early 2011.

    If he didn't know then he's unfit for the office he holds.

    Bounce the blame back to Arizona - state personnel had the lead in this operation.

    It wasn't a gun that killed Brian Terry anyway: it was a Mexican.

    I wasn't in charge of the investigation. I just posted the results. Grow up and learn not to have tantrums when you don't like something.
