Six years af­ter for­mer At­tor­ney Gen­eral Eric Holder was ruled to be in con­tempt of Congress and a suit was filed to en­force a sub­poena against Holder in an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Op­er­a­tion Fast and Fu­ri­ous, the U.S. Jus­tice Dept. has fi­nally agreed to re­lease the doc­u­ments.

The Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion had con­tin­ued a Bush era pro­gram of de­lib­er­ately al­low­ing known gun run­ners to buy guns in the U.S. that were des­tined for the drug car­tels. They called it Op­er­a­tion Fast and Fu­ri­ous and when one of the guns was used to kill U.S. Bor­der Pa­trol Agent Brian Terry, the pro­gram was ex­posed and then vig­or­ously cov­ered up by Obama who fraud­u­lently claimed ex­ec­u­tive priv­i­lege over doc­u­ments re­lated to the pro­gram.

The of­fi­cial ex­cuse given for the pro­gram was that the guns would be tracked to the car­tel's hide­outs. But the feds had pro­vided no way to track the guns. They could have put RFID chips in the guns and hid­den sen­sors along known car­tel cor­ri­dors to aid in track­ing them, but they didn't be­cause there was no ac­tual in­tent to ever track the guns.

Thou­sands of guns flowed across the bor­der un­der Fast and Fu­ri­ous and were used to kill thou­sands or per­haps tens of thou­sands of peo­ple. Most of the guns are still in use and still killing, as in­tended.

Know­ing that there was no le­gal, moral or log­i­cal jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for such a bla­tant vi­o­la­tion of U.S. law, the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion did all it could to sweep the whole thing un­der the rug of se­crecy and not even Congress could get ac­cess to records on the op­er­a­tion, un­til maybe now.

At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions, who ac­tu­ally served on the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee while it in­ves­ti­gated Op­er­a­tion Fast and Fu­ri­ous, con­tin­ued to block the re­lease of the same files af­ter he was ap­pointed At­tor­ney Gen­eral, un­til now and only with nu­mer­ous con­di­tions in­tended to pro­tect the rogue Jus­tice Dept.

Some Amer­i­cans may won­der how the agency can even con­tinue to call it­self the Jus­tice Dept. in light of such egre­gious and trea­sonous crim­i­nal­ity.
