    Any bets on how long before Spoony declares this a “non-troversy?”

    I wonder CNN is covering it now because they got shamed into it by that Ingraham interview with Atkisson yesterday, where she said the WH said all the other news outlets were “reasonable” except her.

    (Not that CNN feels shame, but that it’s reached the point where ignoring it makes them look really bad.)

    Holder and the whole bunch involved in this sick idea should be thrown out of office and tried for accessory to murder for every victim both here and in Mexico.

    • The Penguin says:

      Send them to Mexico (without pay) and tell them they can’t come back until they find every one of those guns.

    • Mary says:

      Touche. Notice the WH shopping the lie that Issa had been briefed on it all, when Holder has said HE didn’t even know.

    Oh, and I’m going to go on record here: If this involved the State Dept in any way, then they need to look at that as well.

    I admire Hillary Clinton with all my heart, and think she’s a wonderful person with the best of intentions. But if the State Dept knew, then they, and she, are culpable too to some degree.

    I’m really hoping that’s not the case, though, and that our Hill was smart and principled enough to stay far far way from this mess. One of my greatest fears with her taking a spot in the O administration was that she’d have to go along, however reluctantly, with his inevitable bad policies. And that she’d take the hits as well as he when it all came crashing down.

      Yup, they should investigate it no matter where it leads.

    • Karma says:

      And really, there is no way around having to take responsibility…..unless of course you are Obama. However, the cynic in me knows that Obama would love to throw the Clintons back under the bus.

      We all remember Obama walking back Hillary’s comments on Mexico resembling Columbia. She caught a lot of flak but it was clear she was right. And the Brady Bill was a key piece of legislation for Pres Clinton, which this operation negates in order to catch the bad guys/stumble upon their bodies. So, I doubt she signed off on such a stupid operation.

      But I agree, even if the investigation doesn’t lead to her desk, it’s still under her umbrella and the risk of serving under such a weasel.

    Saudi Arabia is also experiencing a little unrest.

  7. yttik says:

    Holder should be thrown out of office. Obama is quick to throw women under the bus if he thinks they have cooties, but I wonder if he would send Holder to “spend more time with his family?” I kind of get the impression, no.

    • WMCB says:

      Obama can’t throw Holder under the bus because having Holder head the DOJ is his firewall.

      Holder has been with Obama from the beginning, and knows where all the Chicago bodies are buried, and makes sure they stay that way, and that no attention is paid to them from within the DOJ.

      If Holder goes, Obama’s firewall for his whole corrupt political career goes. He’s not going to find a nominee who can a) pass Senate confirmation and b) will cover his ass the way Holder has.

      He may in the end have to jettison Holder, but if he does, he knows that the dam will break.

  8. WMCB says:

    God, this makes me sick.

    More blatant anti-semitism at the OWS protests. Screaming at a Jewish man about Jews and bankers and go back to Israel.

    And once again, the crowd does nothing. They stand there while this asshole spews his antisemite hate.

    Is CBS News Silencing Fast and Furious Reporter?
    BY MARK HEMINGWAY
    Yesterday, CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told radio show host Laura Ingraham that the White House yelled and swore at her over her reporting on the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal tied to the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents. Attkisson also revealed that she’d also been yelled at by the Justice Department.

    Today, I called CBS News in an attempt to interview Attkisson. I was told by CBS News senior vice president of communications Sonya McNair that Attkisson would be unavailable for interviews all week. When I asked why Attkisson would be unavailable, McNair would not say.

    I’ve also heard from a producer at another media outlet that has previously booked Attkisson that they tried to book her since she made news with the Laura Ingraham interview yesterday. They were also told that she would be unavailable.

    After our initial conversation earlier today, I called McNair back and left a message with her office. I also sent McNair an email asking whether Attkisson’s unavailability has anything to do with reporting that the White House and Justice Department were angry at her. I further asked McNair if the White House or Justice Department contacted CBS News about Attkisson since yesterday. McNair has not responded to my inquiries.

    Anyone know if this Mark Hemingway is credible?
