Barack Obama knew about the gun walking program in March 2009.
The Right Scoop reported:
In April 2009 Barack Obama traveled to Mexico and blamed US gun sellers for violence south of the border. Obama told his Mexican audience, “This war being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States.” Just to be sure, a few months later the Obama Administration started running their own guns to Mexico, at least 2,000 guns.
Barack Obama, April 16, 2009:
“This war is being waged with guns purchased not here but in the United States… more than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well.”

Yesterday the Obama White House refused to turn over documents on the Fast and Furious gun walking program.
