Robinson’s omissions Eugene Robinson’s mac mascara column [“GOP’s fast, furious witch hunt is partisan politics at its worst,” Opinion, June 23] may be compelling to the reader who isn’t well versed on the whole “Fast and Furious” matter. However, had Robinson included all the facts his case may not have been quite so compelling — I believe it is deceitful to state that the Bush administration did the same thing with the arms as was done under the Obama administration. He accidentally forgot to mention that under the Bush administration: one, the arms had electronic sensors for tracking the guns; two, it was done with the cooperation of the Mexican government; and three, hundreds of arrests were made as a result of this program. (The sensors were eventually found out.)
