Issa to ATF Head: Why Are Major Fast and Furious Players Still Working at the Agency?

No accountability, no repsonsibility.
Check it out:

Late yesterday afternoon, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa and Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley sent a letter to ATF Chief B. Todd Jones asking why major players in Operation Fast and Furious are still working at the agency, especially considering Jones said they were no longer employed. Although many agents and supervisors involved in the deadly operation have retired or resigned since 2010 when Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed with a gun trafficked to Mexican cartels during the program, not a single person has been fired.

“The family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who lost his life in the line of duty on December 15, 2010, recently contacted our staffs. The Terry family wanted to know why, more than three years after Agent Terry’s murder, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives has not fired anyone because of Agent Terry’s death. As yo you are no doubt aware, weapons from the reckless Operation Fast and Furious were found at the scene of his murder,” the lawmakers wrote. “Although Operation Fast and Furious took place before you became Director of ATF, the disciplinary actions against the ATF agents who designed, conducted, and managed the reckless operation has fallen squarely within your tenure at the head of the agency.”
