THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS (cont’d): Hey, Holder, Maybe if you ask the Mexican druglords nicely, they’ll give us our guns back? Send Obama to bend over to the cartels. It’s what he’s good at

SUMMARY: “The Fast and Furious operation was designed to monitor purchases by people suspected of buying firearms for others—in particular drug cartel gangs in Mexico. But many of the arms turned up at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico.

Messrs. Issa and Grassley say the ATF should have known it couldn’t track the weapons and that firearms ended up in the hands of deadly drug squads.

QUESTION: What did Holder know and when?

LESSON: 1. Good intentions go horribly wrong (esp. when you try being too clever by half.)  2. Don’t give guns to Mexican cartels. 3. Eric Holder and his boss are clever, aren’t they?
