Hans von Spakovsky gives aging anti-firearm press whore Sari Horwitz too much credit.

Hans A. von Spakovsky writes at Pajamas Media: "Operation Fast and Furious — How the Obama Administration Conned the Washington Post," sub-headed "Selling arms to Mexican drug cartels? Misleading the Washington Post? It's all in a day's work for Obama's heavily politicized ATF."

Hans re-examines this story by Pravda-on-the-Potomac pharaonic scribes James V. Grimaldi and every gun prohibitionist's favorite plagiarist, Sari Horwitz, in light of what we now know about the Gunwalker Scandal and the big-lie "statistics."

von Spakovsky indicates that the ATF "misled" the WaPo. I'm afraid he's giving these Pravda "reporters" too much credit. When you're dealing with gun control, Grimaldi and Horwitz, not much misleading is necessary when you're playing to their most cherished agendas. This is amply demonstrated by their refusal to cover the Gunwalker Scandal until is was too big to ignore, and then by writing stories that twisted facts to give the administration political cover.

So IF Issa as the then ranking member was briefed in "detail" as alledged, can we assume the rest of the committee was briefed as well?

And IIRC that includes Rep Cummings, did Rep Cummings sound like he knew anything about F&F?

So I guess Melson and Issa were in a 'Cone Of Silence' during the brief and no one else was party?

Paging Chairman Town, Chairman Town to the witness stand please.
