Closer and Curiouser

A tip of ourt Borsalino and a clink of our Armagnac snifter to Richard Serrano of the LATimes Washington Bureau who has uncovered email traffic between Arizona and the White House about the "Fast and Furious" gun-running-and tracking debacle that caused the death of former Marine and actibe border guard Brian Terry.

The story, that broke Friday is , in its entirety, available HERE.

So, contrary tothe administration's wished and beliefs, the shuffling around of the head of the BATF director within the Justice Department and the firing of Dennis Burke, the Aerizona US Attorney only served to inflame investigatpors.

Those investigators, in addition to the respected Serrano, who may be 2011's Bib Woodwrd, include Congressman Darrel Issa and Senator Chuck Grassley, who brushed aside an urgent phone call from USAG Eric Holder this week.

They will encounter him face-to-face for a showdown next week.

No more bl;acked out pages in answer to subpoenas will be accepted, Issa warned.

Stay tuned.
