Did you know that way back in mid 2011, it was alleged by multiple sources and backed up by briefing documents that Darrell Issa was briefed on the Fast and Furious on the very same issues he is now trying to hold Attorney General Eric Holder accountable for?
The Washington Post reported in June of 2011, “All of the things [Issa] has been screaming about, he was briefed on,’’ said one source familiar with the session.
Issa claimed that for Holder not to recall the details proved that he was “incompetent” and “negligent”. Yet, Issa claimed he doesn’t remember being briefed on the very same issue. Documents from the meetings say otherwise. To which Issa responded, it is not as much his job as it is Holder’s to watch out for these activities. Huh.
Of course, all of this who knew what when presumes that Issa’s witch hunt is legitimate, and by most accounts, it’s not. Issa’s source is a conspiracy theory of a gun nut, also known as Rachel Maddow dubbed him last night as “the break your windows militia guy” during healthcare reform. Pallin’ around with terrorists, eh Issa?
The crazy guy thinks Fast and Furious is a conspiracy to take away your guns by giving you more guns, because of course if you have more guns you’ll go nuts. He sold this theory (aka; “Obama’s Gun Walker Scheme”) to the NRA who sold it to Fox News who sold it to the House Republicans who are selling it to you.
