Q&A Friday #108: What Will The Outcome Of The Operation Fast and Furious Scandal Be?

Question: What do you expect the outcome of the Congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious to be? Will any prominent heads roll, or will some middle management types be forced to fall on their swords and the scandal be swept under the rug? — Good_Ol_Boy

Answer: You’d go to jail for the rest of your life if you deliberately provided weapons to Mexican criminals. Yet, our government did that — perhaps for purely political reasons — and there are lots of Mexicans and more importantly, an American citizen dead as a result.

At a minimum, everyone in the decision-making chain deserves to lose his job. That would likely include Eric Holder and if it got that high, Barack Obama. Will this go as high as Obama? Doubtful, but not impossible.

Will this be swept under the rug? I doubt it. Even Watergate, which was the biggest political scandal of our lifetime, didn’t have a bodycount associated with it.
