Obama Says He Didn't Approve "Fast and Furious"
According to tweets from CBS Investigative Reporter Sharyl Attkisson, President Obama was asked this evening about Operation Fast and Furious and and ATF's "gunwalking". He stated he didn't approve the operation.
President Obama tonight was asked about ATF Gunwalking Scandal, subject of @CBSEveningNews investigation.
President Obama stated that he did not approve the ATF operation. Watch @CBSEveningNews @katiecouric for the latest Gunwalking developmts
I am looking for when and where Obama stated this and will post the full text when it is available.
