No, I'm not kidding. When his opinion starts off with this:
Between the 24/7 news cycle, social media and reality TV, we have been spoon fed other people's private business for so long we now assume it's a given to know everything. And if there are people who choose not to disclose, they must be hiding something. Being told that something's "none of your business" is slowly being characterized as rude, and if such a statement is coming from the government, it seems incriminating.
it tells you where he's going. "We don't need to know, we need to just let this go and stop asking questions."
We will NOT stop asking questions, we won't stop trying to find out just who was behind this (literal)bloody mess. You write
Heads should roll because of the Fast and Furious debacle. We don't need every detail of that operation to be made public in order for that to happen.
What you're either overlooking or trying to cover up is the fact that if Codrea and Vanderboegh hadn't taken what disgusted ATF agents(y'know, actual lawmen with some honor?) and started beating some politicians over the head with it, if those politicians hadn't started asking questions and refused to back off, how the hell would we know anything? And if we didn't know anything, how the FUCK would you expect 'heads to roll'? Your attitude would have insured that ABSOLUTELY BLOODY NOTHING came out, and the people behind this would have gotten off free and clear.
Fuck you, Mr. Granderson, and your "We don't need to know" garbage. It sounds like you're just making excuses for the journalists who've ignored Gunwalker as long as possible, and now that they can't ignore it they're trying to cover it up and make it go away; and they're damn sure not doing it because they think it's necessary for the security of the nation.
