The Des Moines Register discovers "Fast and Furious"

Now that Senator Grassley has been fighting with the Justice Dept for months John Carlson finally recognizes the efforts to get to the bottom of the "GunWalker" fiasco at the ATF.

John Carlson: How Chuck Grassley is causing discomfort for the Obama administration

It is a good overview of the Fast and Furious debacle and the investigation into the administration, but this is an opinion piece and little substance beyond a couple of quotes.
“I won’t let this drop, because I don’t give up,” said Grassley, who is frustrated by the Justice Department’s repeated dodging of questions from congressional investigators.
I've been critical of Grassley in the past and will probably continue, if for nothing else, he's been in Washington too long. But I have to give him kudos for efforts to get to the bottom of this.

I think he should give a little more credence into the theory that guns were allowed to walk to Mexico as an overall agenda for tighter gun restrictions in the US. That fits the meme.

Keep up the good work, Senator.
