Obama speaks out on "Gun Walker" case

It has taken a while for Obama to disown this. It will be interesting to see who if anyone will actually be held accountable. From CBS News.

Last night, a reporter from Univision asked President Obama about the subject of a CBS News investigation: allegations that ATF allowed traffickers to send weapons to Mexican drug cartels in an operation called "Fast and Furious." Insiders call the strategy letting guns "walk."

In response, the president said neither he nor Attorney General Eric Holder approved the operation.

"There may be a situation here which a serious mistake was made and if that's the case then we'll find out and well hold somebody accountable," he added. . .

Obama: "I got a lot of moving parts."

Obviously, he meant that to excuse his lack of oversight, but I think that he inadvertently described his problem instead. He had a lot of moving parts, too many of them, and those “parts” were illegally moving across the border to Mexican criminals, while his administration sat back and deliberately watched and did nothing to stop them.

I notice it's someone, not the responsible party that will be accountable

I wonder if Obama realizes that his "moving parts" remark was an abandonment of everything he's stood for in his political career and a concession that his free-market opponents have been right all along.
