Fast & Furious Operation: White House Knew...

From the LA Times, no less.

Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about a failed gun-tracking operation on the border with Mexico than was previously known.

Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.

The supervisor of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix specifically mentioned Fast and Furious in at least one email to a White House national security official, and two other White House colleagues were briefed on reports from the supervisor, according to White House emails and a senior administration official.

But the senior administration official said the emails, obtained Thursday by The Times, did not prove that anyone in the White House was aware of the covert "investigative tactics" of the operation.

Oh bull! How does anyone expect us to believe the White House didn't know. There's so much deck shuffling going on in the Regime to cover this up, and the Obama Lapdog Media (with some exceptions) doesn't seem to be interested in investigating this scandal that led to the deaths of Americans.

Certainly, the InJustice Department is only try to cover their tracks and investigate a non-union gutiar manufacturer who contribute to Repubilcans as a way of distracting our attention.

Now if this happened in the Bush Administration.....
