House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa has officially requested Attorney General Eric Holder appear before his committee on January 24, 2012 to testify about Operation Fast and Furious. Issa sent a letter to Holder's office today, saying the hearing will "examine flaws in the management structure of the Justice Department as demonstrated in the genesis and implementation of ATF's Operation Fast and Furious. Specifically, the hearing will focus on what senior Department officials could and should have done to put a stop to this reckless program, as well as the specific areas where failures in communication and management occurred."
