More Gunwalker news

But Grassley said he does not want anyone to resign just yet until Congress has gotten to the bottom of the whole issue.

“I’m not asking for anybody’s resignation at this point because somebody resigns and then they want you to believe that’s the end of it,” he said. “There are too many people involved in it for me to be satisfied with one resignation.”
Already, Grassley said, he has seen emails pointing to a crucial meeting on Oct. 26, 2009. Senior Justice Department officials, the directors of the ATF, CIA, and Drug Enforcement Agency; U.S. attorneys for all the Southwest border states; the director of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force; and the chairman of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee were all present, he said.

“We believe it goes very high up into the Justice Department. But until we get the documents we requested, we can’t say for sure who knew what, when and why this very bad policy was put in place.”

Note that list: there is NO DAMNED WAY Holder did not know about this, which- again- means he lied to Congress.

While the investigation continues into the U.S. operation that helped send thousands of guns south of the border, Mexican lawmakers say they'll press for extradition and prosecution in Mexico of American officials who authorized and ran the operation.

"I obviously feel violated. I feel my country's sovereignty was violated," Mexico Sen. Rene Arce Islas told Fox News. "They should be tried in the United States and the Mexican government should also demand that they also be tried in Mexico since the incidents took place here. There should be trials in both places."

Unless Obama figures some major benefit to him and his plans, this won't happen; but it's still pressure on the guilty.
However, this bit is full of crap:
"It confirms what many Mexicans already believe. That there is this conspiracy from the U.S. to sell guns to Mexico, and that conspiracy has to do with this idea that America is trying to control Mexico or protect the arms industry," said Ana Maria Salazar, a respected Mexican political analyst and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Drug Enforcement Policy under President Bill Clinton.
'Trying to control Mexico'? 'protect the arms industry'? Even coming from a Bill Clinton disciple this is disgusting.

Also note that WaPo reported last week that Issa was in this meeting too! Don't just look at Obama, look to your own people selling you out!

It's been pretty well demonstrated that that report was the WaPo taking orders from the administration to try and discredit Issa and limit the damage from the hearings.
