'Furious' report slams 'disregard' for public safety as DOJ officials quit | Fox News.
The DOJ Inspector General has issued a 500 page report on Fast and Furious, the gun running operation that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican civilians and at least two U.S. federal employees.
The report specifies 14 Department of Justice employees who are assigned to accept the blame for the operation, and fall on their swords for Eric Holder. Jason Weinstein, the Deputy assistand attorney general of the criminal division is resigning. Former ATF acting director, Kenneth Melson has retired. Lanny Breuer, head of the criminal division is not expected to remain so for much longer.
Ken Melson, the interim head of the ATF takes the fall for Obama administration’s (very illegal) Fast and Furious Operation. This guy met privately with Congressman Issa’s investigative committee earlier this summer. Perhaps this places the Obama administration on a tightrope. They moved Melson to the Office of Legal Policy, as a senior adviser on forensic science. Perhaps this is where they can keep him close by, where it’s easiest to watch him.

Meanwhile…. U.S. attorney for Arizona, Dennis Burke, who felt so unhealthy when questioned by the Congressional investigators of Fast and Furious, that they had to stop, has resigned from his post.
