ANDREW MCCARTHY: Fast And Furious Noose Tightens Around Justice Department. “Explosive reports are now surfacing that Justice Department officials clearly knew about the Fast and Furious ‘gunwalking’ tactic, in which the federal government — actually, a task force comprised of Justice Department agencies and led by ATF, a Justice Department agency — allowed upwards of 1400 illegally purchased firearms to be routed to violent Mexican drug gangs. This recklessness led, quite foreseeably, to the murder of at least one federal agent, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, and probably a second, Homeland Security Agent Jaime Zapata. There are reportedly also scores of victims in Mexico.”

UPDATE: Darrell Issa Puts Details of Secret Wiretap Applications in Congressional Record.
