New Fast and Furious emails show Obama administration obstructing Congress

But there is no pressure for an investigation. Indeed, the entire Fast and Furious scandal is now ancient history, the press having concluded there was nothing there. No amount of new information will get the New York Times or Washington Post to reopen the files on the case, and the rest of the media will almost certainly fall into line. The Obama administration can claim success. They were able to stretch out their response to the investigation to the point that with just months to go in Obama's term, no one cares if the facts of the case are revisited or not. They conducted a classic Washington cover-up campaign that did as it was supposed to do: it protected the principals – Obama and Holder – from being held accountable for their stupidity and criminal activity.

It seems it was done with the complicity of the house oversight committee who used F&F as a political football to score points without actually acting on any of the revelations that came out. Slow walked by Issa and then Chaffetz. Bleh, I hate sellouts.

I watched part of a special on CNBC last night where the subject was discussed, with the main story revolving around the cartels.
