Files on Fast and Furious program given to Congress panel

The Department of Justice on Friday sent 1,400 pages of documents to key Congressional committees related to the controversial ATF operation known as "Fast and Furious."

Files on the flawed gun sting program were sent in advance of next week's Capitol Hill showdown hearing with Attorney General Eric Holder.

Holder faces what is expected to be a stormy hearing Thursday when he appears before a panel including Rep. Darrell Issa, R-California, who is leading the congressional investigation of Fast and Furious.

Justice Department officials say the content of the documents reflects the internal debate within the Justice Department about how to respond to allegations the ATF allowed guns to walk.

      Arrest Holder, Impeach Obama – Eric Holder needs to be arrested for giving assault rifles to drug cartels that killed Border Patrol Brian Terry. Obama needs to be impeached for allowing such a criminal act to occur under his watch and the coverup that followed. BP Local 2544

    Holder is bad. As in unethical. As in criminally bad. As in he should not be working for us since he appears to be working for our enemies. As in he could be considered a domestic enemy. As in the Marines need to arrest him and hold him indefinitely because that's what Holder doesn't mind doing to other people when they are waiting outside his offic....OH HI SIR I WAS JUST TYPING STUFF FOR MY REPORT LATER. YES I"LL GET RIGHT ON IT, SIR.
