Was this a badly executed operation. Maybe. And if so, there should be a bit of blame there.
But blaming the deaths on the any president (Obama or Bush, in this case), makes as much sense as blaming any gun related deaths on Smith & Wesson, Browning, Winchester or the NRA.
Come off badly ??? Badly executed ?? A bit of blame ?
Seriously. You Think ???

Erick Holder has lied,, cheated & let others take the blam since he was with Clinton. Obama fares no better.Both have blood on thier hands.


.
How many people have died due to the stupidty
of this administration ?? I don't think Holder (snake
though he is) can slither out from under this mess.

I think you are confusing "Fast and Furious" with "Wide Receiver".

Wide Receiver was a sting operation that placed tracking devices into weapons so they could be tracked. The program mostly busted people for falsifying information to buy guns. In the end, the program did not work as intended. when 0bama and Holder took over, they turned a failed program upside down, taking the worst parts of wide Receiver and turning it into the disastrous Fast and Furious.

The guns found to have kiled people had the serial numbers of guns from Fast and Furious, not Wide Receiver. It's these killings that have brought the investigation to 0bama's door.
