AG Eric Holder Told Congress that Weapons Sold in "Fast and Furious" Will Be Used for "Years to Come"

Attorney General Eric Holder, in his testimony before Congress, suggested that the weapons sold through the "gunrunning" program, "Fast and Furious", may be used to commit crimes "for years to come" in the US and Mexico.

"Although the department has taken steps to ensure that such tactics are never used again, it is an unfortunate reality that we will continue to feel the effects of this flawed operation for years to come," he said. "Guns lost during this operation will continue to show up at crime scenes on both sides of the border."
"The documents produced to date also belie the remarkable notion that this operation was conceived by department leaders, as some have claimed," Holder said. "It is my understanding that department leaders were not informed about the inappropriate tactics employed in this operation until those tactics were made public and, as is customary, turned to those with supervisory responsibility over the operation in an effort to learn the facts."
