    Default "AG Holder cleared of wrongdoing in Operation Fast and Furious"

    Today's headline - "AG Holder cleared of wrongdoing in Operation Fast and Furious." The AP report says, "Justice Dept faulted in gun-trafficking operation". Everyone is to blame except the man who actually runs the department. Heads rolled, but not Holder's, because he supposedly didn't know about what was going on in his own department. How convenient. Gone are the days when a department head would still be held accountable for such a fiasco, because not knowing what was going on in their own department constituted failure to properly do their job and exercise the oversight with which they were trusted. So another administration official skates, while underlings take the fall.

    "In a 471-page report, Inspector General Michael Horowitz referred more than a dozen people for possible department disciplinary action for their roles in Operation Fast and Furious and a separate, earlier probe known as Wide Receiver, undertaken during the George W. Bush administration. The report did not criticize Attorney General Eric Holder, but said lower-level officials should have briefed him about the investigation much earlier."

    It was a W. Bush Admin op, not Obama.

    Holder simply inherited it.

    Sounds like the underlings clammed up about it hoping to keep it under raps.

    Fair enough.

    Hopefully now this spam will go away, like the birthers, and the moosleem-ists.

    In 7 weeks it won't matter anymore. That's when Mitt will be looking for another job he can run for, maybe Senate.

    "Everyone is to blame except the man who actually runs the department....because he supposedly didn't know about what was going on in his own department. How convenient." This would mean that Cheney/Bush need to be arrested for war crimes!

    From what I remember reading about Wide Receiver, the Bush AG tried to let guns walk with tracking devices on them. When the tracking devices were discovered, the program was halted. So if Fast and Furious was Bushes fault, Obama covered it up so Bush didn't look bad. So basically Holders underling investigated and found his boss blameless, and it's Bushes fault. OK, I see how that makes sense.

    just another case of the subs taking one on the chin for the boss. IF he didn't know then he should be removed for negligence. btw, doesn't the inspector general work for eric holder?

    Looks like in this administration the heads don't know what the underlings are doing unless it is for political gain like Osama oops Obama err Osama... Oh well Barry is a troll

    The idiots don't have anything else. Surely their Messiah isn't to blame.

    There is always a SUCKER in a lower level of the Department, who is always going to end up taking the fall for the Chief Scumbag, who actually did it.
