In an attempt to capitalise on the U.S. public’s short attention span, a further delay has been delivered in the Fast and Furious investigation.
DOJ’s Michael Horowitz is claiming that his department has not had time to fully review all of the 140,000 documents (he’s had 2-years, or 730 days, or 520 working days, or 4160 work hours, or 249,600 minutes assuming only 1 person was assigned to read each and every page by himself…. and it was their own program. They WROTE/CREATED those documents.) and additional time is required. The DOJ acts as if this circus act is still a viable, ongoing, endeavor. (May the Great Architect help us all if it is.)
Certainly one could be cynical and look at the impending election with the idea that the current administration needs to do one of two things, either convince the public that the Bush administration did the same thing (which they did not.) or delay long enough for the public to forget about the Obama administrations intentionally up-arming Mexican Drug cartels with taxpayer dollars and assistance from government personnel. But that would be a rational, reasoned possibility to be considered. So… ridiculous.
Untimely good news;
With the arrest of Jesus Meza and the names of five other persons of interest, the DOJ is back on the front page. Well, never the front page but more like section C below the fold in the Tuesday addition. Even so, this news is untimely at best. Making progress in the investigation is exactly not what the DOJ wants as it opens the floor to more questions and brings a modicum of attention back to this fiasco.
It also pours salt on the wounded families of Brian Terry and (strangely ignored… could it be the Hispanic sounding name?) Jaime Zapata. Let alone the hundreds of (completely, utterly, totally ignored) Mexican citizen’s families.
Fast and Furious is a scandal of the highest degree. Anything short of complete transparency is a shot to our collective privates.
It should be on page one.
When an enthusiastic supporter shows a very high degree of man-love with the President it makes the National News Cycle. What if he had given him a shot to the huevos?
Heads would have rolled… but kill a few hundred people with an attempt to create a gun problem on the border, nada.
Have no idea what I’m pounding the keys about? You’re probably not alone…
