In a panoramic article today that takes a look at the broad picture regarding the Gunwalker scandal, American Thinker states that this has been "one pivotal week for Fast and Furious." And every indication points to the fact that the coming week will be even more pivotal.
Major breaking news concerning the scandal has already begun to make its rounds among bloggers and alternative news sites. But in order to put these events in proper perspective, it is important to look at several items that have occurred within the last week that shed new light on the Fast and Furious investigation.
First, the AT article indicates that the Project Gunwalker scandal, or Operation Fast and Furious, is swirling into a major cyclone that no one, not the Administration and not the mainstream media, can stop. That cyclone now threatens to sweep up into its vortex anyone whose hands were even slightly dirtied by participating in the scheme.
On Tuesday, October 25, Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley sent a letter to Attorney-General Eric Holder demanding that he provide answers to questions concerning the murder of ICE agent Jaime Zapata in February of this year. The murder is suspected to have been committed with Gunwalker firearms the U.S. government supplied to Mexican drug cartels. This is in addition to the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who allegedly was also killed by Gunwalker firearms, according to ATF whistleblowers.
