Kenneth Melson, Acting ATF Director and key figure in the Project Gunwalker fiasco and cover-up. He should stay out of Fort Marcy Park.
I knew this was coming, but thought with the press of foreign news it would be next week. I'm taking Rosey out to dinner tonight. It may be I can only afford McDonald's, but we're going to celebrate. That dollar cheeseburger is going to taste like filet mignon.
ATF gunwalking: Who knew, and how high up?
Since our first report in which ATF agents told us they allowed thousands of weapons to cross into Mexico, one crucial question has been: Who knew -- how high up? This week for the first time, President Obama addressed the controversy. It was in an interview Tuesday evening with the Spanish language network Univision.
"Well first of all I did not authorize it. Eric Holder the Attorney General did not authorize it. He's been very clear that our policy is to catch gun runners and put 'em into jail," Mr. Obama said of the controversial ATF operation called "Fast and Furious."
"You were not even informed about it?" asked Univision reporter Jorge Ramos.
"Absolutely not," said Mr. Obama. "There may be a situation here which a serious mistake was made and if that's the case then we'll find out and well hold somebody accountable."
But who? In an exclusive interview with CBS News, the lead ATF official in Mexico at the time Darren Gil says somebody in the Justice Department did know about the case. Gil says his supervisor at ATF's Washington D.C. headquarters told him point-blank the operation was approved even higher than ATF Director Kenneth Melson.
This scandal goes to the top: the White House Bedroom.
This scandal runs deep and wide, as cold as a glacier-fed river. It goes all the way back to Team Obama as under-prepared college SDS "Change Agents".
There are "Haters" out there, in office.
Enjoy your Happy Meal. You sir, deserve so much more.
Holder is going to need some Ambien to get to sleep for the next few weeks.
Well, at least now we know the WHY of obumble's Most Excellent Lybian Adventure...
Hey Dutchman! "Project Gunwalker" is being looked into by Becks people. He will have more on it Monday! Woohaw!
The President and Attorney General are in full damage control mode. This scandal is like a slow acting poison, moving deliberately but surely. Both Obama and Holder have to know that if they are unable to contain the fallout their careers, and indeed their lives as free men, are over. Should key ATF and DOJ personnel not be willing to fall on their swords it will mean impeachment proceedings and the possibility of conspiracy, accessory and homicide charges for both the President and the Attorney General. If Rahm Emmanuel knew about "Fast and Furious", as Mike has indicated in interviews, then there is no way Obama did not. The actions of the White House, the DOJ and the ATF have helped kill scores, if not hundreds of Mexicans, as well as multiple Federal Agents.
I long for the day when the President is served with an arrest warrant by his own SS detail.
May Justice Prevail.

Do you REALLY think that Harry Reid, Chuckie Schumer, Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Barbara Boxer, Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Bill Nelson, Bob Menendez and the REST of the swill in the Senate are about to remove ANYONE associated with this Administration? Sure, the House MAY vote to impeach. But without the Senate, you merely have another Slick Willie. The stench is overwhelming.
The deeper this gets, the deadlier it will get if any attempt is made to quash it. The term "heads will roll" will take on a whole new meaning. Sharpen those machetes, boys!
From Bill Clinton's political MO rules:
Deny deny deny!
If you need to get the heat off you, bomb somebody!
Redefine a few words.
Insist that the opposing parties are engaged in a conspiracy.
Obama seems to have read the book.
