Jay Carney- the White House press secretary – was asked today if President Obama felt the acting ATF Director Ken Melson should step down in light of the Fast & Furious gunwalking program that seems to have been approved by high-ranking officials in the ATF, and/or the Department of Justice, and/or Homeland Security.
Carney would not comment on whether he thought Melson should step down. The video is from C-SPAN and courtesy CNSNews.com. The real question of course … Does the president think the ATF acted stupidly.
In related news, Hot Air notes Melson will be allowed to testify as part of some deal brokered by a couple of senators.
