Holder, Fast & Furious: thousands of Mexicans killed with guns from our country

By Shadee Ashtari | Huffington Post

Attorney General Eric Holder criticized Rep. Darrell Issa’s R-Calif. years-long congressional probe into “Operation Fast and Furious” as little more than an effort to “suck up to the gun lobby,” according to internal emails released Monday.

“Issa and his idiot cronies never gave a damn about this when all that was happening was that thousands of Mexicans were being killed with guns from our country,” Holder wrote to members of his staff in April 2011, after Issa threatened to subpoena a Federal Firearms Licensee witness to testify on the investigation. “All they want to do — in reality — is cripple ATF and suck up to the gun lobby,” he continued, referring to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the branch of the Justice Department that was in charge of the gunrunning operation.
