From Holder's letter:
While failing to interdict weapons is an unacceptable tactic to stop the flow of illegal weapons, it seems clear that some in Congress are more interested in using this regrettable incident to score political points than in addressing the underlying problem.
'Regrettable incident'. Two US cops- that we know of- dead, God only knows how many Mexicans total- so far- and Holder calls Fast & Furious a 'regrettable incident'.
Think about the mindset of someone who defends this horrendous mess with those words. And then uses it to claim "If you'd give us more laws and restrictions WE wouldn't have done what we did!" to try to shift blame.
Mr. Holder, the big 'underlying problem' is that bastards like you thought ALLOWING guns to be bought illegally and then smuggled into Mexico- sometimes with your help, you corrupt sack of crap- was a good thing because you could use it for political capital to try to push your political views on the country. You've got two choices: come clean and resign, or have all this dragged out a bit at a time. Either way you may well face charges, so it would be nice if you showed the integrity to own up to what you did.
But that would require integrity and honor, so I doubt you'll do it.
