How Bad IS "Gunrunner"?

"Gunrunner" was a BATF op which supplied lotsa AK and AR type weapons to Mexican drug cartels with the idea that BATF would track 'em and nail the bad guys.

Except that BATF lost track of the guns, never bothered to discuss it with Mexico's Government, and the guns were used to kill at least one Border Patrol officer.

Nary a word has come from within President Barack Obama’s West Wing in response to a recent barrage of strongly worded attacks by Congressman Darrell Issa – Chair of the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Of late, Issa has given indications of a significant cover-up initiated by figures within the Obama administration, namely the Department of Justice – a cover-up that may in fact ultimately lead to President Obama himself. It is telling to note that no formal official response to Issa’s most recent accusations have been issued by the Obama White House. According to D.C. insiders, such silence is often an indicator an issue is being viewed as “the most serious kind of political threat – the kind that ultimately cripples administrations, and as is so often the case, it is not the alleged crime, but the cover-up.”

No wonder HRC's heading for a safe spot from which she can launch a primary campaign.
