Slow And Pointless: What Darrell Issa’s Inquisition Won’t Dare To Mention

Slow And Pointless: What Darrell Issa’s Inquisition Won’t Dare To Mention

Rep. Darrell Issa’s joke of an investigation into Operation Fast and Furious needs a name.

Operation Plodding and Pointless might do.

The probe into the failed federal effort to track U.S.-purchased guns trafficked to Mexican drug cartels has reached a new height of dudgeon. Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives (along with a handful of Democrats) have found Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for withholding documents subpoenaed by the House Oversight Committee, chaired by Issa.

The committee’s hearings on Fast and Furious have droned on for more than a year now. Yet, to date, no testimony has been taken to address the problem that lay at the heart of the so-called scandal: lax U.S. gun laws that benefit gun shops and do little to stop criminals from getting access to high-powered weaponry.

Issa saw to that when the inquiry began. He laid down the ground rule that no testimony would be admitted that commented on gun-control laws or legislation. As committee chairman, that’s his prerogative. But it’s a transparent tactic.

Instead, Issa has focused his inquisitorial zeal to achieve one aim: to give the Obama administration a black eye.

2. Holder says it's about turning him into a "proxy" for Obama as an attack method...

... on the part of the GOP. He says we'd have to be really naive to think
it was about documents and that he's not leaving.

4. Follow the money

Some Re /NRA goon is making a bag of money because in their demented minds their Second Amendment right gives them the right to spread their AK47s overseas.
Liberals don't even bother to find out the truth because that would tarnish their savior and god so they choose to be ignorant and lie to their sheep who believe anything they are told.

The criminal Holder is calling it an "Election year gambit," however it wouldn't be happening in an election year if he hadn't stonewalled and lied, but had actually complied with the subpoena when it was originally issued last year.

On your own head be it, fugitive from justice Eric Holder.
