AG Holder is having a harder and harder time explaining how 2,000 weapons ended in the hands of Mexican cartels!

Double Take 'Toons: Bag Holder? : NPR
Wonder how they feel about "hope and change" in Mexico these days?

Over the last 24  hours, we've learned a few things about AG Holder and the "guns to Mexico".

First, AG Holder is one lousy executive who goes out of his way to avoid knowing what is going on in the Justice Dept.  Have we ever seen a more incompetent bureaucrat in the history of bureaucracies?

Second, AG Holder is in really serious trouble and may face a lot more than perjury over his previous statements.

On Friday, the White House "dumped" a bunch of documents or just in time to miss the evening news.

I agree with Michael Walsh, who has been following this scandal since it broke last year when one of the guns was found next to Agent Terry:

"It was all a lie.

The angry denials, the high dudgeon, the how-dare-you accuse-us bleating emanating from Eric Holder’s Justice Department these last nine months.

Operation Fast and Furious — the “botched” gun-tracking program run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — did, in fact, deliberately allow some 2,000 high-powered weapons to be sold to Mexican drug cartel agents and then waltzed across the border and into the Mexican drug wars — just as Sen. Chuck Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa, who are leading the congressional investigations, have charged all along.

That’s the conclusion we can draw from Friday night’s nearly 1,400-page document dump, which gives us a glimpse into the inner workings of the Justice Department as it struggled earlier this year to come up with an explanation for the deadly mess — and “misled” Congress."

I agree with James K. Stinebower that AG Holder faces serious crimes:

"I refer to the apparent violation of at least one (probably two) major U.S. laws by the Holder Justice Department. 

A few years ago, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701, the follow-on to the Trading with the Enemy Act) was expanded in order to criminalize any transactions between U.S. entities — to include departments and agencies of the U.S. government — and all foreign drug cartels."

This week, AG Holder, the only man in the world besides Pres BO who did not know the US government was selling weapons to The Sinaloa Cartel, will have to face Congress for a rather intense round of questions.

We are truly beyond the point of "I didn't know" or whatever else AG Holder can come up with.

Here is the bottom line:  We have an Attorney General of the US who needs to accept responsibility, resign and then hire a very good criminal lawyer to defend him!
