On Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee subpoenaed the Department of Justice. "Top Justice Department officials, including Attorney General Holder, know more about Operation Fast and Furious than they have publicly acknowledged," committee chairman Darrell E. Issa said. "The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago. It's time we know the whole truth."
It's hard to crack the top 10 of President Obama's greatest gaffes, but the Operation Fast and Furious fiasco may have shot to No. 1 recently ("ATF shake-up follows inquiry into Operation Fast and Furious," Page 1, Aug. 31). What American outside of this peculiar administration would ever think that authorizing illegal gun sales to get weapons to Mexican criminals was a good idea?

The Justice Department's effort to contain the Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal is crumbling.

Federal agents testified to Congress on Wednesday that their superiors told them to stand down and watch as weapons flowed from gun dealers in Arizona to criminals and violent drug cartels in Mexico part of a now-discredited operation designed to catch gunrunners.
The Obama administration on Friday renewed its proposal to force gun dealers in four southwest border states to register multiple firearms sales. According to its filing in the Federal Register, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) wants to create detailed records of whenever anyone attempts to purchase more than one semi-automatic rifle in Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. The registry scheme highlights Department of Justice (DOJ) hypocrisy on the gun issue.
The chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has issued a subpoena for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to turn over documents concerning "Project Gunrunner" and records the agency has on the shooting death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

The U.S. Border Patrol union says Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's comments reassuring Americans that the U.S. border with Mexico is safe and open for business are "wrong and give citizens a false sense of security."
