Lets us not forget, in the yelling over Benghazi, that the first body count

mess of the Obama administration is still going on:
The second of three reports on Fast and Furious gunwalking prepared for Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Chuck Grasssley, Ranking Member, Senate Committee on the Judiciary, has been released today by Congressional staffers in the nation’s capitol.
While doing the requisite reading and digestion of material, another troubling revelation casts further doubt on Attorney General Eric Holder’s protestations that he did not learn of Fast and Furious until whichever is the latest time period he claims as the story he’s sticking to. As Gun Rights Examiner reported last January, Holder aide Monty Wilkinson told then-U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona Dennis Burke that he’d alerted Holder to the death of agent Brian Terry the same night it happened. Six days later, according to this report, Burke and Wilkinson were corresponding over the recommendation that Holder not announce Fast and Furious at a press conference.

To suggest the AG was still blissfully oblivious about the activities of his command at that time and under those circumstances, and remained that way until happening across mainstream news accounts some months later, strains all semblances of credibility, particularly when considered against the since-corroborated reports that had been compiled by free agents, with no official information resources at their disposal, compared to the unlimited network at his.
Lots of links in the article.

And, from the Dutchman, a question:
 Does anyone here doubt that WE are the zombies
Marines, police prep for mock zombie invasion. Given the trouble the military/DHS-types got into the last time when they designated their probable enemies as "Tea Party types," now we have "Zombies" doing decidedly unzombie-like things. Says the note that accompanied this link:
Who here thinks that this exorcise is not what I think it is???? Is this the gov training for martial law right in front of our faces???
"In the scenario, a VIP and his personal detail are trapped in a village, surrounded by zombies when a bomb explodes. The VIP is wounded and his team must move through the town while dodging bullets and shooting back at the invading zombies."
Several things jump out. Zombies doing IEDs? Shooting BACK at zombies, connoting that the zombies were shooting at them? 'Invading' zombies versus just zombies, who technically are indigenous to the area before their transformation.
Yeah, that's one way to get around pissing people off directly: call them 'zombies' instead of 'tea party adherents.
