Justice Department sends Congress 1,400 pages on 'Fast and Furious'

Washington (CNN) - An intense struggle among several senior Justice Department officials was revealed Friday as internal documents on the gun-running Operation Fast and Furious were released by the department.

About 1,400 pages that had been demanded by Capitol Hill investigators were sent to three key congressional committees in advance of what is expected to be a contentious hearing next Thursday when Attorney General Eric Holder testifies on the subject.

    I'm disgusted by this whole 'Fast and Furious' thing and I'm more disgusted that this guy and his boss have no remorse what so ever for the death of Brian Terry, the U.S. Border Patrol agent killed because of Holder and his boss!!!

    Eric Holder should be in jail and awaiting trial, not testifying. Only in the USA can government officials knowingly violate the law and be an accessory to the murder of our own law enforcement and get away with it. I wonder how many more people died that we will never know about because of this illegal operation run by total incompetents?

    I wonder how many gallons of "white out" were used by Holder and his D.o.J.?
