White House spokesman Eric Schultz :

If Republicans still have any legitimate questions about Fast and Furious, this 450-page report answers them. In light of this thorough report and Congress’s 16 month-long investigation, Republicans have no excuse to keep wasting time and taxpayer resources on politically-motivated, election-year attacks.

I have a feeling that won't slow them down.

It does not cover off the letter from the DOJ that was sent to congress and then had to be withdrawn. That letter was done after Holder learned of the death of the agent and was filled will errors.

It is a serious matter to lie to Congress.

The February 2011 letter said that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives makes "every effort" to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally before they cross into Mexico. It added that the allegation that the ATF had "sanctioned or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of assault weapons" to suspicious people was false.

Bet everyone would like to forget about that, huh?

Interesting headline.
Not very honest given the context, but informative as to the motives of the writer at CNN.

Buck, he didn't "lie to congress". It is you who are lying by suggesting such. And it's telling that you pretend to have already read the 450 page document.
Grow the hell up. You are too see-through to actually be able to make an argument in favor of your extremism.

re: #5 cinesimon

Why are right wingers hot on Obama on this when most of these programs are carry over from the Bush era?

I'm not here to speak for RWnutz.
But the following still matters.
Responsibility for a program is not limited to whoever started it, those who follow on and continue it are also held responsible for the actions of the people under them.

Indeed. I can accept this report and I think its best to discipline (preferably fire) the people who screwed up and then close the book on this matter. The BATFE seriously screwed up in this case, and it needs to not happen again, but Holder wasn't part of the screw-up.

But was he part of the cover up?

True that.

re: #9 Buck

All evidence points to 'No'.

re: #11 Dark_Falcon

Actually there is NO evidence one way or the other on this.

You are looking at the results of an internal investigation. There are a lot of holes in this investigation. I am pointing out a big one.

And you think the internal investigation is corrupt because..?

It was done under a Democrat Administration? // Heck if I understand...

So you agree that there's no evidence of a cover-up. Excellent. Now we are getting somewhere.
