THE HILL: Oversight Chairman Issa forced to delay ‘Fast and Furious’ hearing. “Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) has been forced to postpone a hearing on an inspector general’s investigation of “Operation Fast and Furious” until next week. The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, told Issa in a recent letter that after 17 months of investigating the botched gun-tracking operation, the lengthy report would not be ready for public release until later this week, at the earliest.”
Note to The Hill: The operation wasn’t “botched.” And it wasn’t a gun-tracking operation.
