Washington, D.C. ñ ìThe release of the Department of Justiceís Inspector Generalís report on Operation Fast and Furious is a confirmation of what many of us in Congress have suspected all along.  Despite the Attorney Generalís repeated denials and political games, the truth is that DOJ headquarters either knew, or should have known, about this reckless and illegal operation as early as October of 2009.   Yet, as the DOJís own Inspector Generalís report so shows, they did nothing to stop it.   That fact leaves the American people with one conclusion;  we either have an Attorney General who was asleep at the wheel, or an Attorney General who has incredibly poor judgment.  Regardless of which one of those options is the truth, the outcome should be the same.  Attorney General Holder should take responsibility for this botched operation and resign immediately.î
