    Oh the horrors.. there was a similar program to Fast and Furious under Gonsalves/Bush called Wide Receiver.. do not worry though, what Obama did was far worse than what Bush did and the Grand Inquisitor will have to do some tap dancing in the Congressional Pig Circus..

    Mexicans died, wonder how many Federal Border Agents were shot at by these guns????

    Interesting.. the twists and turns of the Federal Government sure are interesting, meet the new boss same as the old boss... apparently this is the way we do business with Mexico. Issa is going to be in the middle of some serious shyt...

    Of course the difference is that under Bush the gunrunners were apprehended on the spot and the guns NEVER reached the drug cartels.

    Obama and Holder let the drug gangs have the guns and over 200 dead and counting trying to compare the situation is desperate spin by the left and will only work on idiots.

    So you did not read the article, and just assumed that what Bush/Gonsalves did was perfect.. guess they did not cooperate with ballistics under the Bush administration..

    Such a silly POV, what Bush did was ok, what Obama did was bad.. both are idiotic.

    From the highly reliable and universally revered CBS.. guess 450 guns on the street could not have killed anyone under the Bush Adminstration.. guns only kill under the Obama Administration..

    Mounted approximately five years ago out of the Tucson office, Wide Receiver may have actually been the template used -with equally inept results- by the now-infamous Phoenix operations.

    In Operation Wide Receiver, Tucson agents allowed the sales of more than 500 firearms to known straw purchasers. Like Gunrunner/Fast and Furious, the operation apparently backfired.

    Some firearms in Wide Receive were equipped with RFID tracking devices. In Wide Receiver, it seems the illegal purchasers seemed more than slightly knowledgeable of the way the ATF and how to take their aerial and electronic tracking procedures down.

    Knowing the time aloft numbers for virtually all planes used in government surveillance, the buyers had a simple method of getting their purchases across the border undetected. They simply drove four-hour loops around the area.

    As surveillance planes were forced to return to base for re-fueling, the smugglers simply turned and sprinted their cargo across the border.

    The RFID tags also turned out to be problematic.

    Rather than making large enough holes for the tags to be laid out inside weapons, agents force-fit them into the rifles.

    That cramming caused the antennae to be folded, reducing the effective range of the tags. And an already short battery life (36-48 hours maximum) meant that should purchasers allow the firearms to sit, the tracking devices eliminated themselves.

    This might be a good time for both sides to sit back and watch things unfold because both "sides" are going to come out of it bleeding from the looks and sounds of it.

    One thing for sure - no one's hands are clean.

    Town Hall now that is a credible source, all of a sudden CBS has no credibility, first it has cred because it implicates Holder and now it does not.. the right are such silly people.. Townhall is an agenda drive site, of course they got Bush's back..

    Don't worry, if they can find anything Bush did that they can use to say "see Bush is just as bad" you can rest assured that MSNBC and Leg Tingler Mush Mouth Matthews will be screaming about it 24 hours a day.

    Holder is a snake in the grass and he looks like one, a bitter dangerous man, my sources tell me that "he laughed when Bambi's mother got shot"

    He looks like a sneak, like a person you would think twice about "trusting", Emanual (dracula) Rahm has the same look, in other words don't leave them alone in your store.
