Hearings on Operation Gunwalker
Summaries from the Oversight Committee. Sounds as if knowledge went right to the top. Most interesting: the FFLs who were helping were given security videocams to document the straw buys, and the Acting Director of ATF got the IP addresses of the cameras so he could watch the events from his office. That's about as involved as it can get!
Here's a summary of the field agents' and whistleblowers' testimony. Among other things, the supervisor in charge was giddily happy when the guns started turning up at Mexican crime scenes.
The Wall Street Journal's take on it. For some reason the Washington Post hasn't had much to say.
In the meantime, the Dems worry.
The Democrats are doing everything they can to distract from these hearings or to undermine them, Rep. Cummings in particular.

It actually finally made the front page of CNN.com this morning. Fox has been covering it and has a nice big splash but MSBBC last I looked has nothing.
However, both CNN and MSNBC have taken the Pelosi/Schumer call for more gun control off their front pages. I think that gambit has been overtaken by events.
