Sen. Lieberman Launches Fast and Furious Investigation

Senator Joe Lieberman, Chair of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee wants to get to the bottom of Operation Fast and Furious before he leaves the Senate next year. As a short-timer Lieberman has little to lose by launching an investigation into the gun walking operation and "the lack of interagency coordination along the border."

Lieberman's attempt to find out why law enforcement agencies didn't share information or whether they even knew about a Phoenix program allowing thousands of firearms to walk into the hands of drug cartels is just the latest action taken by fed-up politicians on the Hill. Taking a different tack may prove Attorney General Holder is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Fast and Furious. Who else has blood on his hands?

In an exclusive online report published December 1, 2011 sources for PJMedia described Agent Brian Terry's death as a "preventable" tragedy.  Does Lieberman intend to uncover what really happened on the night of December 14, 2010 when Terry's unit was ambushed in Peck Canyon?

From PJMedia:

In this case, the FBI and DEA failed to deconflict. Neither agency bothered to warn Border Patrol to keep their BORTAC teams out of Peck Canyon that evening. As a direct result of this FBI and DEA failure -- combined with Homeland Security forcing BORTAC units to carry less-lethal beanbag rounds in some of their primary weapons -- Brian Terry's under-armed four-man unit walked into an ambush against a heavily armed rip crew, at least five of whom were carrying rifles.

Brian Terry's murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.

Senator Lieberman joins a growing list of congressmen, senators and governors who have either demanded Holder's resignation or who have serious questions about an out-of-control government action that led to so many deaths. While top agency officials and Obama administration chiefs continue to seal records and close ranks, the stench of Fast and Furious will spread into 2012.
