    the senate had so far stood off, but apparently the pressure is building. I would think the revelation of what appears to be a lie told by a deputy DOJ AG put it over the edge.

    Lieberman directs staff to examine Fast and Furious coordination

    Connecticut independent Sen. Joe Lieberman has directed the staff of the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, which he chairs, to examine miscommunication between law enforcement agencies related to the Justice Department’s Operation Fast and Furious.

    A spokesperson told The Daily Caller Wednesday that Lieberman “believe that the lack of interagency coordination along the border merits further examination, and as Chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, he has directed his staff to follow up with the relevant federal agencies on that topic.”

    ‘Fast and Furious’ Linked to Immunity Deal Between U.S. and Sinaloa Cartel, Trafficking Defendant Alleges in Court Papers
    December 29, 2011 – An alleged Mexican drug trafficker awaiting trial in a Chicago federal court claims that the notorious Sinaloa cartel received weapons from “Operation Fast and Furious” under an alleged immunity agreement that the U.S. government made with cartel leaders, in exchange for information on rival gangs.

    "Apparently guns got away again," said one source close to the investigation...
    :confused:
    Another ATF weapons operation, White Gun, comes under scrutiny
    January 12, 2012, Washington — Members of Congress want to see whether White Gun, like Fast and Furious, lost track of firearms that ended up with Mexican criminals.

    Grassley: Where’s report on ‘Fast and Furious’?
    Sunday, March 4, 2012 - The ranking Republican on the SenateJudiciary Committee says a Justice Department investigation into the botched “Fast and Furious” gunrunning operation has taken “an awfully long time to finish” and, as a result, “should meet the highest standards of accuracy and independence.”

    The last time Lieberman strayed off the democrat reservation they kicked him out of the party. He said he won't run next term. It ain't enough that the attorney general escapes manslaughter charges, thanks to the liberal media, but now he wants to convince Americans that the federal government has the option to assassinate American citizens overseas without a warrant or due process.

    The problem with the left is that they feel no loyalty to the greatest Country in the world that they are fortunate enough to live in and as a result they see no difference between American citizenship and criminal drug running aliens and jihad radicals and they willingly put themselves in the shoes of the enemy. How many American citizens are in Gitmo? None?
