Fast & Furious IG report out, and David Codrea's already on it
Right here. I suspect he's stop on. Tomorrow the media will be running that the report exonerates Holder and the White House when, as he notes, key players (including the White House National Security Advisor with whom ATF officials were communicating) refused to be interviewed by the IG, and the IG did not ask for any White House internal communications.
UPDATE: Eric Holder's response. He announces that former Acting Director of ATF Ken Melson has resigned, as has Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein, and folks at the US Attorney's Office and the Phoenix Field Office have been referred for discipline, but that "“It is unfortunate that some were so quick to make baseless accusations before they possessed the facts about these operations – accusations that turned out to be without foundation and that have caused a great deal of unnecessary harm and confusion. I hope today’s report acts as a reminder of the dangers of adopting as fact unsubstantiated conclusions before an investigation of the circumstances is completed."
I guess he wants to have his cake and eat it, too. It's interesting that the effort at damage control, which started out as "a few guys in Phoenix screwed up," ends up sacrificing a Deputy AG as well.
