Eric Holder is under fire because of ‘Operation Fast and Furious’. This was a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms sting operation with Mexican drug cartels. Over 1400 weapons as powerful as .50 caliber sniper rifles and semi-automatic rifles that were easily altered to fully automatic were lost in the exchange to sting the cartel. This resulted in heavy firepower in the wrong hands and ultimately in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
A Congressional investigation and calls for Attorney General Holder to resign have not resulted in a change in the top law enforcement official in the United States. Even with contradictory statements about when Mr. Holder was informed of the failed sting investigation he continues to hold that position in the Obama administration.
Committee members have called on President Obama to ask Mr. Holder to step down. There have been changes at the top of the ATF but the head of the Department of Justice should also be held accountable.
I wonder if President Obama regrets his decision to select Eric Holder to be the Attorney General.
Thank you for your service, Border Patrol Agent Terry. Rest in peace.
