Under the Blanket of "Fast & Furious"

There's a lot that Holder must keep from view on the Fast & Furious (Gunwalker) issue.  Not because it's "national security," but because it will collapse the Administration if it all gets out.

Beyond the obvious "What the HELL'S going on out there?" from Congress are a lot of wrinkles involving up to six (SIX!) Federal agencies.

...Fast and Furious is only one spoke in an entire wheel of extralegal intrigue. For example:Mr. Issa’s subpoena demands all Justice Department documents “referring or relating to the murder of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata, including any correspondence outlining the details of Zapata’s mission at the time he was murdered.

Zapata was murdered by the Los Zetas cartel.  Who cares?  The Sinaloas, that's who.

...Given accusations that the U.S. government has been supporting the Zetas’ deadly enemy - the Sinaloa cartel, recipients of Fast and Furious firearms - Zapata’s death could be directly related to America’s covert policy to choose sides in the “war on drugs.

Who's in this deadly game?

...According to sworn testimony, the Gunwalker scandal involves an entire alphabet soup of federal agencies: the ATF, FBI, DOJ (Department of Justice), DHS (Department of Homeland Security), ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), CBP (Customs and Border Protection) and IRS (Internal Revenue Service), not to mention the State Department and White House.

So to repeat:  What the HELL'S going on out there?
