Thought nobody was investigating Fast and Furious? Think again. Congressman Darrel Issa of California has issued a subpoena to Patrick Cunningham that will expect him to testify before the House Oversights Committee on January 24, 2012.
This is the letter Issa sent to Cunningham (by way BigGovernment.com)
During the course of our investigation, the Committee has learned of the outsized role played by the Arizona U.S. Attorney’s Office – and you specifically – in approving the unacceptable tactics used in Fast and Furious. Senior Justice Department officials have recently told the Committee that you relayed inaccurate and misleading information to the Department in preparation for its initial response to Congress.
These officials told us that even after Congress began investigating Fast and Furious, you continued to insist that no unacceptable tactics were used. In fact, documents obtained confidentially just last week appear to confirm that you remained steadfast in your belief that no unacceptable tactics were used, even after the Department’s initial response to the congressional inquiry. Given that the Attorney General has labeled these tactics as unacceptable and Fast and Furious as “fundamentally flawed,” this position is startling.
From the many comments I read on BigGovernment.com and Townhall.com, I noticed that the majority of people are upset at how slow this case is moving. I am too.
Brian Terry might have been an unfortunate victim of the Fast and Furious program and I am glad that Darrel Issa is continuing to do an investigation.
“More transparency is especially needed when there are credible questions about whether Operation Fast and Furious contributed to the death of a federal agent.”—Sen. Charles Grassley
Five illegal immigrants armed with at least two AK-47 semiautomatic assault rifles purchased during the Fast and Furious operation were hunting for Border Patrol agents near a desert watering hole known as Mesquite Seep just north of the Arizona-Mexico border when a firefight erupted and Terry was killed.—Washington Times
Additionally, according to Examiner.com, some Fast and Furious documents could be released — despite reports that have stated they were sealed. I hope these are signs that we will begin to have justice on the issue.
I don’t understand why there is no public outcry as to why we are encouraging and giving guns to criminals. Liberals are the ones that believe in stricter gun laws. But when it comes to criminals outside of our borders, they don’t.
