    So was the most outspoken critic of ATF's "Fast and Furious" operation really backing it all along? It's going to be interesting to see how this unfolds.

    So he's the one the left will throw under the bus over this issue, huh?
    Any word about obama, Holder, or the rest of the cohorts on this? Just Issa, huh?

    Last I heard, a few heads have already rolled at the lower levels. Right now I'm sitting back and waiting for more to come out.

    From the article..... "(Frederick R. Hill, a spokesman for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which Issa chairs) accused “opponents” of the committee’s investigation of the gun-trafficking operation of “incredulously trying to assert that Obama administration political appointees at the Justice Department were ignorant — yet Congress was in the know on the details of Operation Fast and Furious.’’....That about sums it up. Unfortunately, I don't expect the Washington Post to delve any deeper.

    Sure it would have. At least he wouldn't be in the mess he's in now.

    Then again, maybe someone just hacked his Twitter account. ;)

    The Executive Branch ran the show. Hmmm...I wonder which Obama appointee is going to go under the bus for this screw up....
