The heat is on. Attorney General Holder appears before Congress tomorrow to take more questions about the botched U.S. law enforcement initiative designed to combat weapons trafficking at the border. But, by all accounts, Operation Fast & Furious was deeply flawed – a botched program that ended up taking the life of a U.S. border patrol agent.

Now, with fresh evidence from the Justice Department itself, there are serious questions about whether top law enforcement officials inside the DOJ were telling the truth about this program.
In an interview with Megyn Kelly on FOX News, I expressed concern that no one is taking responsibility for this debacle. There have been some resignations and reassignments along the way. But no one has been fired. No one has taken responsibility for this mess.
You can watch the interview here.

As a Congressional investigation intensifies, Attorney General Holder will appear before the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday. He will be asked direct questions about what he knew and what he did not know about Operation Fast & Furious.
We will see how that unfolds.
The fact is that this unfolding scandal is just that – unfolding. We are learning new facts every day. New allegations are surfacing, too.
We’ve got to get to the bottom of what really happened. It’s time to demand that President Obama and Attorney General Holder present the facts. Sign on to our Petition for the Truth About Operation Fast & Furious.

One of the most important things we can do is keep the story of Pastor Saeed Abedini in the spotlight. This U.S. citizen is facing eight years in a deadly Iranian prison, convicted for his Christian faith. We know that the situation he faces gets worse day by day. He remains cut-off from speaking with […]

It’s unlike any judicial system in the world. On Monday, American Pastor Saeed Abedini went to court in Iran with his attorney to address charges of attempting to undermine the Iranian government. The real problem: he converted from Islam to Christianity 13 years ago and started working with house-churches in Iran. Pastor Saeed and his […]

An American Pastor is being held in Iran’s most notorious prison – Pastor Saeed, a U.S. citizen, has been told that he “will hang” because of his Christian faith. And, now the Iranian government has put this case on the fast track – and scheduled a trial that’s just days away. After sustaining painful beatings […]
