Fast and Furious Updates for October 21, 2011

“So, Mr. ‘You just Took a One Week Break,’” you ask, “where do I go to get up to speed on Fast and Furious, ALA Operation Gunwalker?”

I’m glad you asked.

Perhaps the best place to start is Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea’s six part series, which provides a nice overview, as well as a timeline with links to the related posts:

  • Part 1
  • Part 2
  • Part 4
  • Part 4
  • Part 5
  • Part 6
  • Now back to our regularly scheduled update, which has been on hold while I did things like Texas Senate Race updates, job interviews, etc. So some of this will be old news to many of you:

  • And here comes the subpoenas!
  • How is it that Obama knew about Fast and Furious before Eric Holder did?
  • Rep. Chaffee and Gowdy say that Eric Holder and Barack Obama have some ‘splainin to do.

  • Just the tip of the iceberg?
  • Ruben Navarrette on CNN.com: “This scandal is about dead Mexicans….Where’s the outrage?” Also this: “Bully for Issa. We need to get to the bottom of this scandal, and if the administration isn’t cooperating, there is all the more reason to keep digging. That also goes for Attkisson and CBS News, who have done first-rate work.” Question unanswered: Why did it take CNN so long to realize Fast and Furious was a real story?”
  • The William Newell-Kevin O’Reilly connection.
  • How does the FBI fit in? Plus the mysterious Third Gun.
  • How the ATF punished a whistleblower. And ignored death threats to his life. And then his house burned down in an arson attack. And then the ATF tried to frame him for that.
  • And I though I was the only one in the rightwing blogsphere who made Waiting for Godot references.
  • Before Obama, who knew that you would actually have to pass a law to prevent the U.S. government from using taxpayer dollars to ship weapons to Mexican drug cartels?
  • Here’s a bunch of links from Sipsey Street, which i will refrain from posting individually and pretending they’re my own.
  • (Hat tips: Just about everyone under the Gun Blog header to your right, plus Insta and Ace.)
