President Obama Falsely Claims Fast and Furious Program “Begun Under the Previous Administration” by Jake Tapper

“I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun under the previous administration,” the president said. “When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it. We assigned a inspector general to do a thorough report that was just issued, confirming that in fact Eric Holder did not know about this, that he took prompt action and the people who did initiate this were held accountable.”

The program under Bush was called "Wide Receiver" and ended under Bush. If the AG of the United States of America doesn't know anything about this, he is an idiot and not doing his job. I don't expect him to know the cleaning lady that comes in at night. But he ought to know if the transfer of American artillery goes across the border!! The buck stops with him. Period.
