Ruh Roh: NPR is now covering Project Gunrunner Scandal

This post is not necessarily important for the newsworthiness of the content; it's been covered before. It's important because of who's responsible for the content - National Public Radio! You know it's a real scandal involving a Democratic administration when NPR is covering it, quite fairly I might add. A large focus of this report is the congressional hearing that took place this past week in which Darrell Issa (R-CA) grilled Eric Holder. In fact, NPR gave this week's hearing more attention than did Rush Limbaugh, who focused almost exclusively on the Bin Laden story and how the Obama administration has bungled it multiple times. Newsworthy, yes, but this scandal is looking more and more like it's going to explode. NPR covering it fairly certainly lends credence to such a scenario.

Via All Things Considered:
The murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Mexico last year has touched off a scandal that's now reverberating in Washington.

Members of Congress say that weapons found at the scene of Brian Terry's death have been traced to a federal program that allegedly allowed hundreds of guns to go from the U.S. across the border.

Investigators at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives called it Operation Fast and Furious, just like the blockbuster movie. Agents wanted to follow the flow of guns from the U.S. into the hands of deadly Mexican drug cartels. But the only thing that's coming fast and furious now are hostile questions from Congress.
If you think NPR reporting on this is amazing, check out the comments about the story. Virtually all are against Holder and the ATF, with all having positive recommendations.

This is big, folks.
