Fast and Furious Indictments and Beanbags
Janet Napolitano -Director of the Department of Beanbags
It is a good thing that the Justice Department has identified and charged the men suspected to be involved in the shooting death of Brian Terry. Hopefully, those who are in Mexico will be apprehended and somehow delivered to the US for prosecution-even if it has to be the famous old "hole in the fence" extradition.
However, this in no longer removes the need to know how Operation Fast and Furious was conceived and carried out. The Issa investigation must continue.
It is also noteworthy to note that DOJ has now confirmed that Agent Terry and his partners were armed with beanbags.
What makes this even more ridiculous is that DOJ and DHS knew full well that the Border Patrol was not dealing with rioting college kids at Berkeley here. They were fighting well-armed, vicious cartels involved in drug and human trafficking. To make it even more outrageous, they knew that they themselves were supplying these criminals with the very weapons they were using.
Does this not alone justify a demand that somebody lose their job?
