Fast and Furious Unravels

I'm pretty tired of hearing about the Fast and Furious controversy, including on the Daily Show, but the latest information from a Fortune investigation -- summarized here on Mother Jones -- is an eye-opener. The lead in puts it this way: "A Fortune investigation reveals that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. How the world came to believe just the opposite is a tale of rivalry, murder, and political bloodlust."

According to MoJo, "Fortune's investigation puts the lie to [the claim that the ATF and DOJ sold guns and covered it up], and suggests the scandal is really about how gun-proponents have hogtied ATF agents and federal and state prosecutors in their efforts to halt fishy gun purchases."

Wow.

Wow. I hope more comes of this. And I hope the reporter has a bodyguard.
