Fast and Furious: Holder says GOP House kept law enforcement “in the dark”

posted at 12:10 pm on November 8, 2011 by Tina Korbe

Eric Holder delivered his remarks as prepared at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing about Fast and Furious today. That means he not only called for tighter gun control regulations — he also accused the House of Representatives of keeping law enforcement in the dark “when individuals purchase multiple semi-automatic rifles and shotguns in Southwest border gun shops.”

Holder’s boldness is almost impressive. After months of stonewalling the House Oversight Committee as it investigates Fast and Furious, he recites that line without the slightest trace of irony. As Townhall’s Greg Hengler put it, “Has the word ‘projection’ ever had a better example?”
