Fast and Furious Update for December 1, 2011

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

I’m feeling a bit under the weather, so here are some random and no doubt woefully late updates on Fast and Furious just to prove that I’m not totally out of it:

  • The U.S. government may be the biggest supplier of guns to Mexican cartels. (Hat tip: Say Uncle.)
  • A long leaked email leads Sipsy Street to conclude that they knew And by “they” he means “everyone”:

    EVERYBODY in ATF and DOJ along the border knew, and they knew it before the murder of Brian Terry, for it obviously is no surprise to the highly-placed AUSA Cook, and he doesn’t mind using this common knowledge to achieve the desired result from Phoenix.

  • Rick Perry blasts Fast and Furious and says Holder must go: “America simply cannot tolerate an attorney general who arms the very criminals he is supposed to protect us from and then refuses to comfort the grieving parents of a slain Border Patrol agent. Nor can we tolerate a president who lacks the courage to take decisive action in restoring justice to the Department of Justice.”
  • Michelle Bachmann has also called for Holder to resign.
  • Reporter: “Mr. Holder, why are so many people asking for your resignation?” “Shut up, that’s why!”
  • Zeta Certel violence comes to Harris County.
  • The Obama Administration seals documents related to the murder of border patrol agent Brian Terry. Just imagine if the Bush Administration had done the same for the Valerie Plame. The difference, of course, is that nobody died in the Plame Kerfluffle…
  • A confidential information evidently knew that a “rip crew” was looking to hijack a drug convoy. Supposedly the “third gun” that disappeared from the scene (an SKS carbine) belong to that informant.
  • So what happened to ATF agents with a knowledge of Fast and Furious? The ones responsible got promoted, while the whistle-blowers got screwed.
