Issa launches Fast and Furious website

U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa has launched a website documenting the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee's investigation into Operation Fast and Furious: fastandfuriousinvestigation.com.

Issa, the committee's chairman, has been a harsh critic of the Justice Department's investigation into cross-border gunrunning.

Operation Fast and Furious allowed straw buyers to supply drug cartels with firearms. ATF planned to trace the supply routes of guns into Mexico during the investigation.

"While the Department of Justice sought to deny that anything improper occurred in this reckless operation, Sen. Chuck Grassley and I have continued our efforts to expose the truth about what Attorney General Eric Holder now concedes was a fundamentally flawed law enforcement effort," the California Republican said in a press release.

"FastandFuriousinvestigation.com will assist efforts to explain to the public the truth about what occurred, who knew, who was responsible, and efforts to ensure that this does not happen again," Issa said.
