ATF Stonewalling on Gunwalker Scandal

Not only is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and really big fires) refusing to provide Congressional investigators with documents related to disgraced Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious, but they ain’t saying why, neither. Which can mean only one thing: there’s some major league ass covering going on behind the scenes. Well d’uh. As we pointed out at the beginning of this sordid mess, before ATF insiders revealed that Mexican drug thugs used ATF-enabled guns to kill not one but two American law enforcement officials, the U.S. government’s actions in this misguided misegos are nothing less than a criminal conspiracy. Quite what charges, if any, will be leveled and by whom (the Department of Justice is in this up to their eyeballs) is an open question. Meanwhile, click here for Rep Darell Issa’s letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton re: her agency’s refusal to turn over Gunwalker docs. Yup Hillary’s in too deep, and Obama’s transparency pledge is coming home to roost. Shocked? Not me.
