Who was in charge of leaving the gate open?
Did you see this article, Meister?
The obvious answer of the first head that should roll (and did) was the head of ATF, Ken Melson, who was "reassigned" in August, 2011. The U.S. Attorney in the area was also asked to resign. Now, it appears that the tentacles of the operation reach into the FBI, and up the food chain at USDOJ.
It's hard to say who gave approval for this, but the Executive Office of the U.S. Attorney's Office may be involved. It's hard to say how high it goes, exactly. I'm not sure, for example, that Holder signs off on local ATF operations, though the head of ATF definitely would.
Scandals in every orifice.

Has obama blamed Bush for the Secret Service catastrophe yet?
Most scandals don't put illegal guns and ammo in the hands of criminals, resulting in the death of law enforcement professionals, so this one will be difficult to bounce back from.
Bush caused the GSA scandal. I'm sure Bush had something to do with the SS disaster.
