After a few weeks of almost no news coverage, Operation Fast and Furious has been getting coverage once again. And it's getting more and more interesting. Tuesday, the news was that Kenneth Melson, the acting head of ATF had been reassigned.(wonder what pay grade?) You can make a good guess.
Now today, the L.A. Times, CBS News and Fox News are all reporting about the emails they have secured showing that at least three White House officials were in the know on this tragically failed operation. A DOJ email seems to stress that the fact a U.S. Border Patrol Agent that was killed with one of the guns DOJ sold to criminals must be covered up.
My daily perusal of the news organization websites predictably found no mention of any of this by ABC, NBC, MSNBC, and of course, CNN. What a surprise!
As I wrote in an earlier post, this story is going to have legs, and those legs started moving a little faster this week. The internet is screaming with this one...maybe the mainstream media won't be far behind. More later. http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/nation/la-na-atf-guns-20110902,0,7480365.story
