On Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder sent a long and petulant letter to a number of Congressional leaders on Operation Fast and Furious. Today, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, responded back. The closing paragraph is the quote of the day.
Operation Fast and Furious was the Department’s most significant gun trafficking case. It related to two of your major initiatives – destroying the Mexican cartels and reducing gun violence on both sides of the border. On your watch, it went spectacularly wrong. Whether you realize yet or not, you own Fast and Furious. It is your responsibility.
