It was literally called Project Gunrunner, and it has become a major scandal.
Already we know the weapons used to kill Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry were being tracked by Gunrunner, but new documents reveal a much bigger problem.
The questions this morning in Washington are how high does this go and will Congress call for a formal investigation of its own.
“I’m still asking questions and we’re getting the runaround from the Justice Department,” Sen. Charles Grassley told Fox News.
“They’re stonewalling. And the longer the wait, the more they fight, the more egg that they’re going to have on their face.”
Grassley and others say Gunrunner was a dismal and deadly failure, with ATF intentionally allowing thousands of weapons to be illegally trafficked to Mexico.
The question is why?
