Eric Holder knew about Fast&Furious in July 2010

New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.

On May 3, 2011, Holder told a Judiciary Committee hearing, "I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks."

Yet internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing Fast and Furious.

He lied to Congress. Like a Persian carpet.

How unexpected!

Meanwhile, the White House and Justice Department are forming a tag team to silence Sharyl Attkisson.

How unexpected!

Great link, WiFi.

I love their reasoning - the Washington Post and the New York Times are 'reasonable' because they don't see a story here - and she's unfair and biased for pursuing it.

They're pushing us to spitting distance of tyranny, aren't they?

October 13th update:
Good news for a change: it looks like the LA Times Washington and Mexico bureaus are picking up the story.

Friend of mine sent me a link today, it seem Sharyl Atkinson is reporting the USA sold GRENADES to the Mexican cartels too, not just guns.

This just keeps getting better and better.

The US House of Representatives finally gets off its ass and drafts a contempt citation against Eric Holder.

This really is unexpected!

H/T small dead animals.

What does it say when the Congress of the USA finally does the right thing, and we are all surprised?

We should contemplate that for a moment.

Eric Holder is now in a Congressional Inquiry, but seems to have memory issues distinguishing Fast and Furious from Wide Receiver.
