-- new outrage tonight against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
After -- LA times report alleging the agency promoted three -- supervisors.
Of the controversial.
Fast and furious operation.
That program allowed thousands of guns to be illegally sold.
Transported and trafficked across the US border into Mexico.
Thousands of guns were simply lost track of by -- In the operation.
I share responsibility for mistakes -- made in the fast and furious investigation.
The advantage of hindsight the benefit of a thorough review of the case clearly points -- things that I would have done differently.
A source familiar with the a large promotions telling Lou Dobbs tonight that the moves were actually not promotions.
But lateral transfers and that the men all three.
Are still receiving the same pay.
They have all however been transferred to the agency's headquarters.
In Washington DC.
Joining me now for more on the story Fox News senior judicial analyst host of freedom watch judge Andrew and -- -- up.
Judge this is one of the most outrageous.
Stories that we've covered and some time.
Congressman Darrell -- -- leading the investigation.
-- senator Chuck Grassley.
What in the world is that Justice Department doing here.
It's thumbing its nose in the face of common sense in the face of common decency in the face of one of its own who was murdered.
By one of these guns.
In in the face of what may be some serious lawbreaking.
Look I'm not a fan of stings.
Sometimes the government creates crime but sometimes things get -- people of the streets.
Gave military style weapons to some of the worst and most violent gangs anywhere.
In the Western Hemisphere and one of those weapons ended up killing.
-- Porter a federal Border Patrol agent and as you said in the intro thousands of guns are now missing and these guys.
I don't know if it's a promotion -- I want one -- server quickly.
That in addition -- -- Border Patrol agent.
-- Brian terror right at least 150.
Mexican citizens were killed in Mexico.
With these -- -- here's they're crazy theory.
That this is not the government selling guns.
This is the government failing to prevent and encouraging gun dealers to sell guns to known criminals SOA -- actually committing a crime.
Its job is to stop the transportation of these guns that actually facilitated.
So basically -- of these gun dealers sell to these thugs who will make sure you don't get prosecuted so if we wanna Trace the guns is a worry is the inspector general here why aren't there are being -- aren't criminal charges being levied against those.
Who carried out.
Who instructed that this program -- because I suspect and I think congressman I say and senator Grassley agree with me.
The knowledge of this goes to the highest levels in the Justice Department and perhaps beyond that stated differently it is hard to believe.
That the attorney general himself and that the president of the United States did not know about this well.
And if -- and chart restaurant -- to say about it we will find out.
George I wanna turn to are very important broadcast that raises a very interesting point.
The show is now.
The daily show with Jon Stewart on a very specific issue here.
So now -- dropping out repair job and -- Michelle -- Ron Paul dominating the Ames straw poll we got ourselves a race.
We have a top tier it is Mitt Romney Rick Perry Michelle Bachmann we have a new top tier and it's.
Perry Mitt Romney and -- there's now a top tier.
In this race at least for now Romney Perry and Bob I think that's fair to say.
Really fair to say you're not forgetting I don't know anyone say an ideologically consistent twelve term congressman who came within less than 200 votes winning the straw poll.
There's -- -- gonna give that gentleman a little.
A little a little while more of a new record but it felt way well but it's and it's a very profound -- this Ron Paul one point away from a tie if you will in the straw poll He has He has maintained his position throughout.
Art He has been dismissed -- the national media I remember a and governor of a large western state.
And again in 1980 that was dismissed but the media is too little too conservative too rigid to a -- ideologically consistent.
He's now the most revered post World War II president of our -- -- Ronald Reagan so.
The media sometimes doesn't get what it wants why does it not like Ron Paul because He challenges the orthodoxy of both political parties.
The Republican in the Democrat.
And the media doesn't want to deal with that.
And I'm still trying to deal with.
He and Barney Frank trying to legalize marijuana is not alliance with them and now I do that's why brought an excellent get out at the overall but that there how we're we're Christians always -- -- always a pleasure lifelong.
-- -- -- -- watch the judge on pretty much right after of this broadcast at 8 PM eastern for those you're following.
