DOJ Tears Into ‘Fast and Furious’

After enduring harsh criticisms from prominent Republicans for his perceived role in the bungled ‘Fast and Furious’ gun-walking operation, Attorney General Eric Holder was cleared of wrongdoing on Wednesday. A report by the Department of Justice’s attorney general nevertheless took the mismanaged operation to the woodshed, saying that the agents and prosecutors involved engaged in “a series of misguided strategies, tactics, errors in judgment and management failures.” The operation ran from 2009 to 2011, and came to national attention after a Border agent, Brian Terry, died in a shootout at which guns sold in the operation were later found nearby.
