Why not let him talk? Unless there is something to hide. So was it corruption or incompetence? This whole botched operation is shedding a lot of light on some not so savory operations the government is involved in.SOURCE
White House Counsel Kathryn Ruemmler sent a letter Thursday to Republican lawmakers Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley, refusing their request to speak with Kevin O’Reilly, a former National Security staff member whose emails place him in the middle of the unfolding scandal. Issa and Grassley had written to Ruemmler on March 28, asking the White House to step aside and let O’Reilly talk to investigators.
Oh so very true. Most are much more interested in the Martin Zimmerman fiasco. Isn't it kind of humorous how this is hardly getting much press?Look at it this way. I was an armorer in the military. What do you think would of happened to me if I lost 10 rifles out of my inventory, and three of them were implicated in murders? How much press would that have got?

Blatant, boasting corruption within the highest offices in government, but people don't care.
It won't, like I said people are more interested in speculating on the Martin Zimmerman case. Government involved in shady operations isn't as juicy as prodded racial tension. As long as a couple people pick up on the story and find interest I'm satisfied.

Early life, education, and business careerChaffetz's father was Jewish and his mother was a Christian Scientist. Chaffetz converted to Mormonism in his college years
In early 2012 Chaffetz worked as a spin doctor on behalf of the Mitt Romney presidential campaign during primary season, shadowing the campaign of rival GOP candidate Newt Gingrich to offer rebuttals to reporters following Gingrich speeches. "I'm just trying to offer a little perspective," said Chaffetz at one of Gingrich's Florida stops.

That is pretty pathetic Zimman has gotten more attention than gunwalker and fast and furious where thousands of brown people were murdered.
Obama and holder both are guilty here.

I'm glad to see people here taking some kind of notice. How about this one. Google keyword search (Zimmerman Martin), it will bring up approx 19,800 news articles. Now keyword search (fast and furious), it will bring up approx 2,300 news articles. Now keep in mind there is a movie called Fast and Furious. It's a testament to the fact that the information you get is controlled. It's kind of pathetic when you see the blatant media control.
Emails obtained by The Associated Press show how in a 2007 investigation in Phoenix, agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives - depending on Mexican authorities to follow up - let guns "walk" across the border in an effort to identify higher-ups in gun networks.
Justice Department policy has long required that illicit arms shipments be intercepted whenever possible.
The 2007 probe operated out of the same ATF office that more recently ran the flawed Operation Fast and Furious. Both probes resulted in weapons disappearing across the border into Mexico, according to the emails. The 2007 probe was relatively small - involving over 200 weapons, just a dozen of which ended up in Mexico as a result of gun-walking. Fast and Furious involved more than 2,000 weapons, some 1,400 of which have not been recovered and an unknown number of which wound up in Mexico.
Earlier this month, it was disclosed that the gun-walking tactic didn't begin under Obama, but was also used in 2006 under his predecessor, George W. Bush.
The probe, Operation Wide Receiver, was carried out by ATF's Tucson, Ariz., office and resulted in hundreds of guns being transferred to suspected arms traffickers.
