U S Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress on two separate votes, one civil and one criminal. I heard Mr. Holder give a statement in his own defense, where he tried lamely to state that Fast and Furious was a continuation of a Bush era program. Unfortunately for Holder and other liars in this administration, operation Wide Receiver, which was started under the Bush administration, with the knowledge and cooperation of the Mexican government, was able to actually track a much smaller number of guns.
The program was shut down two years prior to the Obama administration's Fast and Furious, because of the difficulty in keeping track of the weapons.
In addition, the Obama administration did not inform the Mexican government of the program, nor were any arrests made, as was the case under Wide Receiver.
Fast and Furious is a wholly owned subsidiary of the oxymoronically named "Obama Justice Department", which sent false testimony to Congress denying that the program even existed.
Tell that to Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and some 200-300 dead Mexican citizens killed with weapons obtained illegally and "walked" across the border, aided and abetted by the Obama DOJ.
