Three Questions.

It seems that the Justice Department is still stonewalling Congressman Issa on the Fast and Furious investigation.  There are three questions still unanswered, and I doubt that we'll be seeing any answers to those questions anytime soon. 
1. Who conceived this radical departure from normal law enforcement practices? Who conceived an operation requiring the deaths of hundreds or thousands of Mexican nationals for its success?

2. Which Department of Justice officials saw that Operation Fast and Furious needed hundreds or thousands of firearms to be given to the cartels and recovered at the scenes of crimes, knew that the crimes in question were likely to be murders of Mexican nationals or U.S. citizens along the Mexican border where the cartels operate, and approved the operation anyway?

3. Knowing that Operation Fast and Furious could be the political and criminal albatross that drives away moderates and Latino voters and destroys his chances of winning a second term, why does President Obama refuse to appoint a special prosecutor or to call for Eric Holder and his direct reports to resign?
The answer is easy. The operation was approved above Eric Holder's payscale and he's trying to protect his boss.Anyone who believes that this operation was conceived and approved at the local level simply doesn't understand bureaucracy.  There is no way this was a local operation. 

My guess is that Eric is hoping all this will go away until after the election.  It's our job to make sure it does not.  If the Secret Service can hold an investigation, fire agents, and report to Congress in a matter of weeks, there is no reason for this investigation to be continuing for over 18 months.  The only possible answer is that Eric Holder has the goods on The Lightworker and if our President tries to throw him under the bus, the metaphorical long knives will come out.

They all also know that the media in this country is not going to ask the questions or push the issue at all. They are doing everything (mainly nothing) to try and make it just 'disappear'.
