    The Obama admin sells guns to drug dealers so they will be able to track them down.

    Total fiasco.....

    Well, this is what we get when we allow a bunch of academic pinheads with an experience rating of zero to run the show.

    Agree, although I'd probably peg the experience rating as a negative number.

    DOJ 'Distorted Truth and Obstructed Our Investigation' in Guns-to-Mexico Probe, Lawmakers Say
    Wednesday, July 06, 2011 - Members of Congress investigating the ATF's botched gun-tracking operation say it now appears that the Justice Department "obstructed" their attempts to find out what happened. They also expressed deep concern about the possibility that the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Agency already knew about -- and may even have been working with -- the people who were smuggling weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

    Obama Takes ATF Gun-Running Operation ‘Very Seriously,’ Spokesman Says
    Wednesday, July 06, 2011 – White House Press Secretary Jay Carney on Tuesday deflected questions about a botched ATF sting operation that allowed guns to “walk” to Mexico, but he did tell reporters, “You could assume that the president takes this very seriously.”

    We'll never know if this SECRET operation might have worked- its cover was blown. The Obama administration, except possbly Holder, didn't know about it. And I don't care what lyin' spinning Fox Noise and Issa have to say either...

    So you are OK with a Commander in Chief who is completely unaware of what is going on around him?

    If you are correct, then he has a serious leadership issue. This was not the CIA...the was the DEA.

    As a side note.....please cite how Fox News spun the story.

    Or are you just another person who posts on here negative things about Fox but with absilutely no basis for it.

    SO back it up or be considered another charleton.

    Do you have any proof that Obama or his staff allowed this?
    Or maybe it as the idea of a Department of the US govt.
    Obama does not run every agency of the govt. personally.
