Gunwalker

If you haven't been following the Gunwalker scandal, then you haven't been kept abreast of the sheer toxic bureaucracy that is the ATF. Simply, they were letting guns go over the border, not for any law enforcement purpose, but simply to bolster the numbers of US guns involved in violence along the Southwest border.
ATF Agent John Dodson, testifying in front of the committee, said that in his entire law enforcement career, he had “never been involved in or even heard of an operation in which law enforcement officers let guns walk.” He continued: “I cannot begin to think of how the risk of letting guns fall into the hands of known criminals could possibly advance any legitimate law enforcement interest.”
Good question, Agent Dodson. The simple answer is that letting those guns fall into the hands of known criminals was never intended to serve a law enforcement purpose. Oh, no, it's much more political than that.
At the same time in 2009 that federal law enforcement agencies (the ATF, the DOJ, and presumably Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security) were creating the operation that led to the executive branch being the largest gun smuggler in the Southwest, the president’s team was crafting the rhetoric to sell the crisis they were creating.
The President's team was crafting rhetoric to sell the crisis they were creating. How very treacherous. They were crafting a crisis to pursue an agenda. That's Eric Holder's DOJ we're talking about.

It's easy to connect the dots back to the President, who told no less than Sarah Brady that he was working on gun control.
During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, "to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda," she said. "I just want you to know that we are working on it," Brady recalled the president telling them. "We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar."
This scandal his huge, reaching from the Southwest border all the way to the White House. This is criminal and it reaches the Oval Office.

Don't expect this to stick to BHO. Holder and Napolitano will fall on their swords first.
