Weapons linked to ATF's controversial "Fast and Furious" operation have been tied to at least eight violent crimes in Mexico including three murders, four kidnappings and an attempted homicide.If you click on the CBS link, you'll get more detail on the crime scenes referred to above. I must say, it's a bit vexing to see the Solyndra scandal get more attention than Fast and Furious; the former doesn't involve murder. Furthermore, the longer no one is identified as the individual responsible for authorizing this program, the more the evidence points directly to Attorney General Eric Holder at minimum.
According to a letter from U.S. Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the disclosed incidents may be only a partial list of violent crimes linked to Fast and Furious weapons because "ATF has not conducted a comprehensive independent investigation."
When added to the guns found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in the U.S., the newly-revealed murders in Mexico bring the total number of deaths linked to Fast and Furious to four.

The man who penned that letter sat in front of the Oversight committee on June 15th and was grilled. Here is a montage of that grilling:
