Obama says he didn't know about the gun ATF/DHS smuggling operation, do you believe him?

Mexico is complaining to the US that they were never notified of the U.S. operation that allowed high powered assault rifles to be smuggled into Mexico, an operation which was headed by the ATF with help from DHS. Obama said in an interview that if Mexico didn't know about it he didn't know about it either. I'm having a hard time believing that he did not know about a "gun smuggling sting operation" run by two major entities of the Administration that lead to the death of an American Agent. Do you believe him?

    Plausible denial-ability but ignorance of the law is no excuse and he is still the President therefore responsible for what US agencies do here and abroad.

    @ Bob Rat, you know who DIDN'T believe the ATF was smuggling firearms? Hitler! So you are keeping some noble company as well.

    (Nice logic).

    Since you find Mainstream Corporate Media so much more credible, let me do the 1 minute google news search you were too lazy or willfully ignorant to perform:

    You see, the "blog source" was merely commenting on what had already been reported and confirmed by the MSM. The author's aim was NOT to prove to you that this has taken place, as this fact is not even debated.

    But to you it sounds scary, so therefore it cannot be true, and you aren't willing to even take the time to find out if it is true, because you're afraid of what you might find.

    So you declare "I have no knowledge of it so therefore it must not be true."

    Well, to quote Shakespeare: "the things you don't know could fill a warehouse."

    To answer the question, I am doubtful that Obama could possibly be aware of everything that goes on in his government, simply because the government is so BIG and unwieldy and unaccountable that it's not really possible for ANY one person to follow it all.

    That being said, if he DID know, I would count on him to lie about it.

    This is funny, you guys don't think Obama knows anything, he doesn't know what he's doing, he doesn't know anything about Healthcare or how to reform it, he doesn't know anything about being President of the U.S., he doesn't know how to run a war or what's going on around him, but darn you can't believe he doesn't know about a gun smuggling operation to Mexico. Who cares, I hope he did know, I hope he was secretly sending them to Mexico into the heart of the place in hopes of cutting down the amount of border jumpers coming over here. Why are you trying to slander our President, you don't know what he knows or doesn't know, you pretend you do, but you don't get to pick and choose what you think he knows or doesn't. If he says he didn't know, I believe him.

    Of course he did not know, just like Ronnie was not aware we were selling weapons to Iran.

    The ATF is not smuggling guns to the Mexican mafia.

    Did you have a hard time believing Regan when he said the same about the Iran-Contra arms deal?

    These kind of black ops are purposefully held from the president.... God forbid we have a president who has a soul and would put their foot down on operations such as this along with the CIA drug smuggling INTO the US (See also, the Golden Crescent Drug Ring the CIA was involved with).

    Many times this info is withheld from the POTUS because 'they' don't want him making decisions with the knowledge of his own being involved in such a situation.
