Quote of the day—Sen. Chuck Grassley

It’s clear that both the ATF and the Justice Department failed to provide meaningful oversight of Operation Fast and Furious. They ignored warnings from employees, and frankly, failed to do their jobs. It took the death of our own Border Patrol agent, action by a courageous whistleblower and intense scrutiny from Congress before they even took note of what was happening under their own eyes. Even then, they wouldn’t come clean with how bad it really was until after they had sent a false letter and retracted it eight months later.

  1. While you’re at it, please check the prices on good hemp rope and the hourly rate of a good knot-tying expert.

    Oh, and the “corruption fee” of certain judges wouldn’t be out-of-line either.

  2. Seems funny to describe it as a “failure of oversight” by ATF and Justice Department when they probably ordered them to do it in the first place.
