Eric Holder when asked about Border Agent Brian Terry's death by a firearm supplied by Attorney General Holder's Justice Department:
"When you were informed about that within 24 hours, did anyone inform you or allude to the fact that the weapons found at the scene were from Fast and Furious?" Issa asked Holder.
"No," Holder replied. "I didn't know about Operation Fast and Furious until the beginning parts of 2011 after I received that letter from Senator Grassley, I guess at the end of January and then that was about Operation Gun Runner. I actually learned about the Fast and Furious operation in February of that year."
