The Department of Justice released their Inspector General’s report on Fast and Furious this morning. In total, 515 pages with redactions (Click to Download PDF).
Okay, what is really in the report? Is it a white wash? Is the report a start? How complete is it? Does it clear Attorney General Holder? Does it answer questions about Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s death? Does it address who else in the United States have been injured or killed by these guns? Does it address where these guns are now at? Does it address what Barack Obama knew and when? Does it address the tens of thousands of documents Congress has asked for and Obama and Holder refuse to turn over?
Will Attorney General Holder now answer his contempt of Congress charge?
