Oh my...!

Exclusive from FOX News on Fast and Furious...

Dozens of senior-level U.S. government officials turned a blind eye to public safety as they pursued an ill-conceived and poorly managed investigation into gun trafficking in Mexico, according to a long-awaited inspector general's report on Operation Fast and Furious.
Portions of the Justice Department IG report, which has not been made public, were obtained exclusively by Fox News Channel.
The report and accompanying accounts cite a failure in leadership and a lack of accountability and oversight up and down the chain of command at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Justice Department itself and other offices. It says many senior executives knew the U.S. was helping traffic guns to Mexico that killed people but did nothing to stop it.
"We found no evidence in Operation Fast and Furious that the ATF or the (U.S. attorney's office) attempted at any point during the investigation to balance the risks to the public safety against the long-term benefits of identifying trafficking networks and participants," the draft report says.

What does it mean?  Probably that those in charge, and most culpable, will have an opportunity to "punish" their underlings and sweep the whole sordid affair under the rug, protecting those at the highest levels.

I say once again, an operation of this magnitude could not possibly have happened without the knowledge and approval of those at the very top.

I wonder how the timing of the release of these findings will impact the campaign strategy of the current administration?

Ahhhh well.  Welcome to Amerika.

Stay safe.

a failure in leadership

I disagree, the leadership from Hussein and Holder was not a failure as it did exactly what they had intended. The only failure? They were caught with their pants down and then there is the small matter of unfortunate deaths due to collateral damage.........

I agree, Brock.

They will slaughter a sacrificial lamb, Holder and Obammy will walk, and the few sheep who took any notice at all will go back to sleep. And so the story repeats itself, just with different characters...

Sadly the wrong party in charge is associated with the media. While I would argue in many instances the other side of the same coin is no different, I will pencil this down to a remark I made to the guys I served with (In some cases twice)A few years ago you heard every time someone died and there was a daily tally of deaths, change an administration suddenly its a surprise when a "milestone" is reached.
