First he is shocked....shocked...
"I want to be clear: Any instance of so-called 'gun walking' is unacceptable," Holder said of weapons smuggling, later adding: "This operation was flawed in its concept, and flawed in its execution."Then we get Sgt. Schultz: I know nottink...
Last week, his assistant attorney general, Lanny Breuer, expressed "regret" for his failure to alert Holder about the operation.Sure, your #2 kept you in the dark.
Then, of course, the obvious answer to preventing this sort of thing from happening is to give the guilty parties more money:
Holder made a plea to the committee for strengthening the authority of the ATF to detect and disrupt illegal gun trafficking, and urged full funding for the ATF to combat gun-running.Sure we broke U.S. law, Mexican law, and international law, but that's just because we didn't have the budget.
If the ATF had had the budget, they probably would have sold nukes to Al-Quaida.
Write your congress critter and ask politely that he or she ask, politely, for Mr. Holders resignation. And while you're at it don't forget to ask that the BATFE be disbanded.
