U.S. Investigators Not Alone in Condemning "Fast and Furious"

Friday, June 1, 2012

Today, the Los Angeles Times reports that U.S. congressional investigators seeking information on the "Fast and Furious" debacle are not alone in condemning this now-infamous program.

Confirming what has already been admitted by U.S. officials, Arturo Sarukhan, Mexico's ambassador to the U.S., commented earlier in the week, "Mexico was never apprised how the operation would be designed and implemented."  Mr. Sarukhan added, "Regardless of whether this was or was not the intent or the design of Fast and Furious, the thinking that you can let guns walk across the border and maintain operational control of those weapons is really an outstanding lack of understanding of how these criminal organizations are operating on both sides of our common borders."

As we reported earlier,  U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), joined House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) in sending a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder demanding full cooperation with the ongoing Congressional investigation into "Fast and Furious" and the tragic death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.  To date, that call has not been satisfied.

NRA continues its call for Attorney General Holder to resign over his Justice Department's unwillingness to fully account for this disastrous operation.
