Over the weekend, a spokesman for the freshman congressman from Michigan told The Daily Caller that Amash believes Eric Holder should resign over the scandal surrounding the Justice Department’s incomprehensibly reckless Operation Fast and Furious, in which, “Over 2,000 weapons, including AK-47s and .50 caliber rifles, plus ten thousand rounds of ammo were deliberately allowed by ATF to go to drug cartels so they could be tracked. Almost comically, the tracking device on the weapons was a GPS bought at Radio Shack. Yet, the battery life was only three months, making it impossible to know where the guns were after the batteries died.” Amash is the 124th House member to call for Holder’s resignation and/or sign a House resolution of “no confidence” in Holder as the nation’s attorney general.

Operation Fast and Furious is the deadliest and most sinister scandal in American history. A scandal so big, it’s worse than Iran-Contra and makes Watergate look like a high school prank gone wrong.
New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric Holder was sent briefings on the controversial Fast and Furious operation as far back as July 2010. That directly contradicts his statement to Congress.
The mainstream media are incorrectly reporting it as a "failed sting operation." In reality, Operation Fast and Furious was a huge success. It achieved its stated goal which was placing thousands of rifles and pistols into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, then hoping enough violence would spill over into the United States so that the American people would call for gun sales restrictions, or at least provide the Obama Administration with the information to impose such restriction. It worked. Guess what happens if you purchase two or more common automatic rifles within a 5 day period? The information is recorded and sent to the ATF. To make matters worse, a federal judge has upheld the rule proposed by the ATF to track multiple gun sales in Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico.
"It is estimated that approximately 3,000 people were killed in Mexico as a result of 'Operation Fast and Furious,' including law enforcement officers in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico, the headquarters of the Sinaloa cartel," the court documents allege. "The Department of Justice's leadership apparently saw this as an ingenious way of combating drug cartel activities."
