Never take legal advice from the prosecutor

Re: More problems for Eric Holder – Gunwalker: Justice Dept Violated US Laws.

From Instapundit, a very good article by Michael Walsh on the NY Post

Fast and Furious Lies

So the gun dealers who were assured by the Justice Dept. that they should go ahead and make the sales to the cartel buyers under the legal umbrella of the Justice Dept, were placed in legal jeopardy by actually following the advice given to them by the Justice Dept. How much do you want to bet the gun dealers get charged with a crime, while the same people who gave them this insane advice, and the Justice Dept. higher-ups who crafted these plans are never touched?

Also if this happens, what will happen to any future attempts by the Justice Dept. to coordinate any real criminal gun tracking with gun dealers? The Law of Unintended Consequences will make the bodycount of the Gunwalker program look small.
