All Gunwalker, All the Time. The scandal waters rise.

Ken Melson ponders his fate and wonders, "How did the water get so deep when I'm on the fifth floor?"

Senator Grassley gives Laura Ingraham a scathing interview.

David Hardy notes "Gun Walker" keeps growing

Robert Farago comments on Obama on ATF Operation Fast and Furious: “I did not authorize it”

Right. Because there’s no way that the ATF would keep the President of the United States and the Attorney General in the dark about the main thrust of its firearms interdiction program—for which they received an extra $200m or so—and tell the Mexicans what they were up to. Because shhhh. It’s a secret!

We can now conclude that President Obama isn’t the ringleader in a large criminal conspiracy perpetuated by a federal law enforcement agency against an ally. I repeat: the buck doesn’t stop there. But this exchange does reveal the Prez and his number one law enforcement guy as disconnected and incompetent.

Now, shall we talk about the cover-up?

Dave Workman asks "How high up does ‘Project Gunrunner’ go? (Who knew what and when?)"

Linked on Drudge, Richard Dunham also writes "Obama says he didn’t inform Mexico of U.S. gun smuggling operation because he didn’t know about it." Also picked up on Tickle the Wire, a blog that deals with federal law enforcement news.

On Obama's statement; "i was not informed" keep in mind it may be better to appear ignorant than culpable.

Wow --- great Sen. G interview with Laura.

It would have been ultra cool if she had at least even alluded to the fact that if not for a couple of junkyard dog investigative journalists, CBS would not have even been plugged into this story.

Well, that's ok. There are people that know, on both sides of this fence. And we ain't fogettin'. Period.
