What about the guy who financed and orchestrated this entire fiasco; Eric Holder and his boss, Barrack Obama, who by executive order, protected him and covered-up these crimes?

Conservatives have this double standard - cognitive dissonance that assault weapons in the hands of Americans make them safer and reduce crime while assault weapons in the hands of Mexicans make them less safe and increases crime.

Which one are you going to settle on?

@mountain man (corrected spelling and two words not one)

I think you mean George bush don't you? he started the program not Obama.

Hayden, ID

@ George. Nice try but according to an ABC news release, "In actuality, the Fast and Furious program was started in October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency.

Previous programs involving ATF agents allowing guns to “walk” across the border so as to trace them were run during the Bush presidency, but not this particular “field-initiated program.”

@mountain man (sorry but I cannot go along with the miss spelling)

you seem to be trying to split a hair that does not exist. What is the difference between the two and how is fast and furious not an extension of the Bush program.

Hayden, ID

George. As to my spelling, the correct spelling (with an i) was taken, so I opted for the option that I did.
The news report says that there were vast differences between the program that was initiated during the Bush Presidency compared to its evolution to what it was under Holder. Thousands of innocent people were killed by the latest gun running but none earlier. Also, are you really ok with the Obama cover-up? Really?

Just cannot get over the fact BO and his cabal are responsible for this fiasco, can you?

So you obviously have no problem with the BO misadministration arming criminal gangs.

So, why the executive order halting an investigation?

Mcallen, TX

Some how, over two thousand guns ended up with Mexican cartels, killing men, women, and children.

An executive order was put out to stop an investigation.

Our liberal friends blame Georgr Bush? Go figure?
