Ted Cruz Calls For Special Investigator for Fast & Furious

Ted Cruz, former Solicitor General of Texas and now a senate candidate, has joined the call for a Special Investigator into the role of the Department of Justice and specifically Attorney General Eric Holder in the Fast and Furious gun-running operation into Mexico.
The more we learn about Fast and Furious, the more disturbing the revelations are.  The public has a right to know who knew what and when.  Americans deserve an open, transparent investigation free of political spin.  It is clear that this case has now reached a critical point where an impartial investigator is required.
Attorney General Eric Holder has been far from forthcoming in this investigation.  Questions about what Holder and his staff knew about the operation, and their repeatedly changing stories, warrant an outside review.
Everyone has the right to be considered innocent until proven guilty, but the continual stonewalling in this case has undermined the public trust.  That trust can only be ensured by appointing a Special Counsel to review the case.

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
