If it wasn't intended, genius, why did the BATF allow suspicious straw purchases over the objections of the gun dealers and then not even try to track the weapons? It was a gun control operation, pure and simple and they shot themselves in the foot in the process and many people died. Under Bush the BATF made a serious effort to track the weapons and when their methods failed, they closed down the operation.
President Obama, and Attorney General Eric Holder are both getting a pass on " Fast and Furious " by the left wing media.
