Arizona Senator John McCain has requested a special U.S. Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing to address issues pertaining to the controversial Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' controversial Fast and Furious case.
In a letter addressed to committee chairman, Sen. Joseph Lieberman, dated September 7, 2011, Sen. McCain requested a hearing in which the Attorney General of the United States, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and the Acting Director of the ATF are called to testify.
“Last week additional information was released concerning Operation Fast & Furious that raises yet more questions over the decision making process behind the operation,” he wrote in his letter.
“I request the Committee hold a hearing as soon as possible to examine these new revelations and determine what additional measures are needed to help prevent this type of malfeasance from occurring again.”
Gee, Senator, where were you when Issa in the House and Grassley in the Senate were screaming about this from the rooftops? Where was your investigative spirit then? Gee, could it only be now that alot of the heavy lifting has been done that you get involved. I am not impressed.
