Fast and Furious: What Darrell Issa WON’T Tell You — Podcast July 9, 2012

The Truth About Fast and Furious: Democratic Perspective’s co-hosts, Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson, along with Gary LaMaster, a member of  DP’s editorial board, discuss the political furor surrounding the Arizona Office of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ Fast and Furious program. Are Representative Darrell Issa and the Republicans telling the real story? Was the ATF sponsoring the purchase and shipment of guns to Mexican drug cartels without adequate oversight? Was Attorney General Holder indirectly responsible for the assassination of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry? There’s considerable evidence now, thanks to Katherine Eban’s excellent article in the June 27 issue of Fortune Magazine, that the Republican Party has been engaging in a political smear campaign rather than a search for the truth. Big surprise.
