Calm Down?

Here’s the opening line of the Washington Post article about the personnel shuffling at BATFE.

The new acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives announced a major shake-up of his agency Wednesday and urged Washington insiders to “calm down” about the latest revelations surrounding a controversial ATF gun operation.

I’m calm enough. I just want to know how high the criminal behavior goes and who’s going to be held responsible. Watergate percolated for months. Next summer during the run up to November would be a great time for Senate hearings on the subject. It would be something to do when the President is accusing them of doing nothing.

  1. You don't have to go as far back as Watergate: the fuss over Abu Ghraib was on the front cover of the liberal newspapers for a freaking year. Has F&F ever made a front page once?

    One screw-up by a few kids at one prison, and it's front page news for a year. Nobody died. Somebody was embarrassed. F&F is about 1000 times worse.
