Media help cover-up 'Fast & Furious'

Of all the myriad scandals of the Obama administration, there is one, largely ignored by the mainstream media, that could actually be its worst.

That scandal is the operation run from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, under the Justice Department, known as “Fast and Furious,” through which the federal government actually encouraged and even ordered American gun shops to sell guns — against the store owners’ better judgment — to “straw” purchasers who were funneling guns to Mexican drug gangs while the ATF sat back and watched and did nothing.

As Katie Pavlich shows in her remarkable and eye-opening new book, “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-Up,” the whole scheme was either absolutely harebrained or, as some have more ominously theorized, intentionally designed to manufacture “evidence” for tightening gun control legislation.
