The BATF’s Fast and Furious program to arm the cartels in Mexico has made the mainstream press. The Wall Street Journal is reporting on some of the details and concludes with the news that the acting head of the BATF will likely be forced to resign. They are also reporting this from a President desperate to wash his hands of this debacle.
White House spokesman Jay Carney, in response to questions Friday, said, “I can tell you that, as the president has already said, he did not know about or authorize this operation.”
Well, that’s nice. I’m going to let President Truman and Winston Churchill reply.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
