Holder, Obama, Napolitano, and Clinton feign ignorance and don’t appear to be accountable to anybody, but this doesn’t preclude evidence of past statements and policy positions which point to what they should have known about an operation near and dear to their hearts. They opposed the expiration of the assault weapons ban in 2004, and they were part of the joint effort to link “lax gun control laws” to Mexican drug cartel violence months before the onset of the gun-walking operation.


Instead of these authorities taking responsibility for actions of people under them, they prefer to have us believe that a dearth of leadership existed in the White House, at the DOJ, and at the Phoenix office of the ATF to such an extent that field operatives could act with impunity.
