More on Project Gunwalker
Pdf letter here. I always figured Grassley was OK, nothing better, but this is extraordinary. It's obvious (1) he isn't going to let up and (2) he's getting VERY good internal intel. He knows that the FFL who sold the rifle used to kill Border Patrol Agent Terry had met with BATFE over a year before sale of that firearm, that the local Special Agent in Charge sent a memo to HQ right after the killing, the names of various task forces and when various presentations were made to HQ. And whoever is doing the work knows how to deal with heel-dragging, and which requests are most important.
When someone gets killed it has a tendency to make others feel they NEED to do something - bad enough to overcome their reticence.
