It's about time.

Someone is having to pay the price for the lunacy OF the ATF's "Fast and Furious" scheme.

In case you didn't know "Fast and Furious" was dreamed up by the ATF to allow  bad guys to buy powerful weapons in border states like Texas.

The theory was cartell members could be tracked down by the serial numbers on the guns and be arrested.

Problem a badly run government operation, the serial numbers were lost or the guns got out of their system but not before a border agent was killed and other members of law enforcement were hurt.

Whistle blowers came forth..and instead of the feds...who usually love whistle blowers when it comes to to smacking down big business....the whistle blowers in the this case were fired or smacked down themselves. Kenneth Melson is out as head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Department of Justice announced this today.

Reports say this month, the Justice Department announced that guns from the program turned up at the scenes of at least 11 crimes in the U.S. In El Paso, Texas, 42 weapons were seized from two crime scenes alone.

Now that the head man is out...the rooting out needs to be continued.

The rest of the higher ups and the justice department needs to be scoured before this sorry, sordid incident is finally put to bed.

Thats my point of view what's yours?

So ....What was the Executive Privilege all about?

If holder and obama aren't charged with crimes for this; there is no justice for Brian Terry

He was reassigned to another post in the Federal government, and it wasn't to a Federal prison where he should have gone. So what about Operation Castaway, the Federal gun running of arms to Honduras... what's been done about that?? Where is your zionist media on that government corruption?
