There are 2 comments on the story from Oct 6, 2011, titled Sen. Cornyn: Holder Leading DOJ 'Cover-up' of Fast and Furious. In it, reports that:

Attorney General Eric Holder is leading what looks 'more and more like a cover-up' of what he knew about a government-sanctioned gunrunning scheme that allowed hundreds of assault weapons to fall into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels, says one of the key senators involved in the investigation.

According to the article:“As the documents provided to Congress show, not a single one of these reports referenced the controversial tactics that allowed guns to cross the border, and in fact, in one example provided to Congress consisted of a single sentence referencing a Phoenix-based operation. These reports are compiled to provide regular updates to department leadership and can contain references to hundreds of cases, investigations, filings, court opinions and initiatives going on around the country at any given time.

“None of the handful of entries in 2010 regarding the Fast and Furious suggested there was anything amiss with that investigation requiring leadership to take corrective action or commit to memory this particular operation prior to the disturbing claims raised by ATF agents in the early part of 2011.”

Agent Terry and Agent Zapata were killed in Dec 2010. Do you think DOJ they should have paid attention then? This is nothing but a cover up.

He just caught lying yesterday trying to provide fake emails.

To: All members of the U.S. Congress:

Whereas, the Obama Justice Department is stonewalling congressional attempts to get to the bottom of its disastrous "Fast and Furious" operation, in which federal law enforcement personnel have been required to facilitate the delivery of some 2,000 U.S. firearms to ultra-violent Mexican drug cartels;

Whereas, the Obama DOJ is now using this same "Fast and Furious" scandal – which has already cost lives on both sides of the border, including a U.S. Border Patrol agent – as a pretext for imposing draconian new gun-control regulations on law-abiding, federally licensed firearms dealers in the U.S.;

Whereas, under Obama, the DOJ's Civil Rights Division is hiring only lawyers that are far leftists – in blatant violation of federal law that prohibits the use of political or ideological affiliations to assess applicants for career attorney positions – as proven by a newly published analysis documenting that of the 106 lawyers hired in 10 different sections of the agency’s Civil Rights Division, every single one has a résumé filled with connections to far-left organizations;

Whereas, to rectify alleged "discrimination," DOJ is requiring banks to lower their mortgage underwriting standards and approve loans for minorities with poor credit – a repeat of the same easy-lending cycle that led to today's catastrophic housing crisis;

Whereas, DOJ inexplicably abandoned its already-successful prosecution of the most outrageous case of voter intimidation in modern history perpetrated by nightstick-wielding thugs in the New Black Panther Party, causing at least one career DOJ attorney to resign in protest;

Whereas, the Obama Justice Department sued the state of Arizona for passing an immigration law, introduced as SB 1070, that provided for the enforcement of already existing, but unenforced, federal border and immigration laws;

Whereas, the DOJ is refusing to enforce a landmark federal law Obama dislikes – the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, which defines marriage as a legal union between a man and woman and prevents courts from using the Constitution's "full faith and credit clause" to force same-sex marriage on all 50 states – and now supports a new congressional effort to repeal DOMA;

Whereas, as attorney general, Holder has mandated that Umar "underwear bomber" Abdulmutallab be tried in Detroit as an American criminal suspect and not a foreign enemy combatant, the al-Qaida-trained terrorist has been allowed to "lawyer up" and avoid the very questioning that has proven in the past to yield precious intel capable of saving thousands of lives;

Whereas, the Obama Justice Department has become one of the most politicized and corrupt federal agencies in modern history, led by an attorney general with a long history of defending and pardoning terrorists while violating the most obvious standards of basic fairness and even-handed justice, turning the Department of Justice literally into a Department of Injustice:
