Issa Statement on the President’s Operation Fast and Furious Remarks

Washington, DC — House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa released the following statement on President Obama’s comments at his press conference today on Operation Fast and Furious:

“President Obama’s remarks today on Operation Fast and Furious were disappointing. He expressed no urgency to provide answers or explain why no one at the Justice Department, six months after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murder, has accepted responsibility for authorizing an illegal gunwalking operation. The American people expect more from the President than unsubstantiated assertions that the Attorney General didn’t know about this reckless program and no explanation about who authorized it.”
