Anybody think they'll be revising the figures DOWNWARD?

Official: Justice Department correcting 'Fast and Furious' figures.

A spokeswoman for a lawmaker leading the congressional investigation into a controversial ATF program said Friday that the Justice Department is correcting information it provided on the number of crimes in which guns tied to the "Operation Fast and Furious" program were recovered.

In a written document last month, the Justice Department told Sens. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, and Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms "is aware of 11 instances where a recovered firearm associated with this case was recovered in connection with a crime of violence with the United States," according to Beth Levine, a spokeswoman for Grassley.

Grassley has since been informed that the information will need to be corrected, Levine said, adding that Grassley does not know whether the number will be increased or decreased, nor by how much.

The talking continues (which is good), but as yet, no actions in the way of indictments, prosecutions, trials, fines, jail time, etc.

We could pull a 90% figure from the same place Hillary and Eric got theirs and let them struggle to disprove it.

One major drawback remains though. I would seriously doubt that we could find someone self sacrificing enough to get that close to their noxious arses.
