It’s been pretty obvious that the primary purpose of “Fast and Furious” was to bolster the administration’s agenda for gun control, but Town Hall has the smoking email that proves it:
Once again, liberals and the Obama Administration are focused on guns rather than criminals and federal government incompetence. Operation Fast and Furious is looking more and more like a set up from the beginning to push Obama and Holder’s radical anti-Second Amendment agenda as they used law abiding gun shop owners to enable government officals to break the law, then turned around and blamed the very same gun shops for illegal gun trafficking, despite those shops being forced by ATF to help ATF agents carry out Operation Fast and Furious, and now, those shops are being punished through new Justice Department gun control measures. Obama and Holder both have long records of being outspoken opponents of gunrights and both support the reinstatement of the “assault” rifle ban, better described as a ban on semi-automatic rifles.
They’re not “liberals.” They’re criminals.

Patrick Richardson has more.
Say it ain’t so: witness tampering at the Justice Department? This isn’t just worse than Iran-Contra — I suspect that it’s got the potential for another Watergate.
Except for the fact that the media don’t want it to be, of course.
