Late Friday Afternoon Document Dump: Gunwalker docs

The AP is reporting in a breaking news alert that in a late Friday afternoon document dump, the Justice Department released to Congress over 1300 pages of material on the Project Gunwalker scandal, also known as Operation Fast and Furious. The documents, according to the DOJ, 'explain' why at least two statements made under oath to Congress turned out to be false.
At issue is a letter written by Assistant Attorney-General Ron Welsh to Senator Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, back in February which claimed that the ATF neither knew about nor sanctioned the illegal sale of assault weapons to straw purchasers who then took the weapons across the border to Mexican drug cartels as part of its program called 'Fast and Furious.'
Both claims turned out to be false.
