Nope, you are not off the hook, AG Eric Holder. Not by a long shot. No way in hell.
GOP Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley are back with a new letter demanding more information about the murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata and the tactics used while conducting surveillance on known straw purchasers, a la Operation Fast and Furious.
Here is the pdf of the letter.
From the press release:
Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Chuck Grassley are pressing for additional information into the murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata and the tactics used while conducting surveillance on known straw purchasers, raising concerns similar to policies of Operation Fast and Furious out of the Phoenix office.
The letter explains the inconsistent statements by the Justice Department regarding Otilio Osorio, his brother Ranferi Osorio, and Kelvin Morrison. The three straw purchasers were known to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, long before one of the guns purchased by the brothers was linked to the murder of Agent Zapata.
To make matters worse, Grassley and Issa wrote in their letter that documents indicate the ATF failed for more than three months to create a Report of Investigation on the November 9 transfer of firearms between the brothers and Morrison and a confidential informant, witnessed by ATF agents. The report was finally written on February 25, 2011—the same day the ATF received the report tracing the Zapata murder weapon back to the purchase by Otilio Osorio.
Grassley and Issa said that documenting investigative steps three months after the fact and only after a trace returned to the murder of a federal agent raises red flags about the nature of ATF’s investigation.
And why would we assume Holder has the good graces to reply to this letter, let alone by the given deadline of noon of November 8? He's wiped his hinie with every other piece of paper we sent in his direction.
You can say what you want about those filthy hippies in the various parks around the country, but they do get out there and they do demand attention. Not saying we should go out into the cold but we do need to learn to start screaming a lot louder.
"screaming" doesn't matter when it comes to our side of the table, that they now own and we paid for.
Votes and court decisions are the only things that do..... Unless you can manufacture enough votes that public opinion no longer matters or you appoint the judges....
Sounds like a rosy scenario to me.
