Holder Could be Interviewed in Flawed "Fast and Furious" Operation

by Associated Press posted Apr 4 2012 6:40PM
 WASHINGTON (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder says he expects to be interviewed by investigators looking into Operation Fast and Furious, a flawed Justice Department gun trafficking probe in which federal agents were allegedly ordered by superiors to allow hundreds of weapons to flow illicitly from U.S. gun shops in Arizona into Mexico.
 
     During an appearance in Chicago, the attorney general made the comment about the Justice Department's inspector general's office, which has been examining who is responsible for employing the risky tactic known as gun-walking. Many of the weapons in Fast and Furious were recovered from crime scenes on both sides of the border, including the scene of the killing of U.S. border agent Brian Terry.
 
     Holder said he would talk to the inspector general investigators when they request it.
