    While federal officials publicly denounced a lone whistleblower and told Congress the Obama administration had done everything it could to stop guns from going to Mexico, administration officials had signs that Fast and Furious investigators were losing track of weapons, a new memo obtained exclusively by Fox News suggests.

    The memo, written in early February by Agent Gary Styers with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, appears to corroborate allegations made a few weeks earlier by whistleblower ATF Agent John Dodson about the gunrunning probe. It also conflicts with a letter from Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich to Congress, in which he insisted, "The allegation ... that ATF ‘sanctioned’ or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons ... is false.”

    Is former Arizona U.S. Attorney to be F&F sacrificial lamb?

    With Thursday’s anticipated grilling of Attorney General Eric Holder by members of the House Judiciary Committee looming large, a careful reading of a letter sent to Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley by Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole the other day suggests that the Justice Department has selected its fall guy for the Operation Fast and Furious fiasco.

    What do you want. They are all trained liers, trained to protect their employer at all costs...truth has nothing to do with it. F&F has always supposed to be "under the radar" If you know who said that. They all knew what was up from the begining. Right up to the VERY top. And I would not be surprised if Agent Terry's death was just supposed to be part of the program.

    They ran Nixon out for less than this.

    ATF critics mark anniversary of incident that brought down Fast & Furious

    Today marks the one-year anniversary of the fatal gun battle in southern Arizona that cost the life of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and led to the exposure of a government scandal that is now the subject of two Congressional investigations and a Justice Department Inspector General’s probe, and threatens to become a blood-soaked campaign issue for 2012.
