Without a Doubt

I don't think there can be any other explanation for the Obama administration's "Fast and Furious" release of guns to Mexican drug thugs than to create the appearance of a crisis and to precipitate the launch of a new gun control jihad in this country.

Glenn Reynolds agrees:
I think it’s possible, and maybe even likely, that this operation was intended to provide PR support for the Administration’s gun-control program by putting traceable U.S. guns at Mexican crime scenes so that Holder could point to them as a reason for more gun control in the United States. (Other explanations — such as that this was a sort of Iran/Contra deal involving the U.S. Government deliberately arming one side in the Mexican drug wars, are even worse). Heads should roll, starting with Holder’s, but not ending there.
The hope-n-change gang that couldn't shoot straight.  We should fire them all.

Michael Moore made demagoguery look so easy. How could Obama and Holder have so screwed the effort up?
