Why did Obama just reassign the ATF director behind "Fast & Furious" & not get him out of his administraiton?

Update:

Jayleen, Fox News is the most reliable source factually, that's out there. Of course that's why many hate them and try to defame them so people won't listen to the truth other sources won't print or address. ... but the facts are the facts, the guy was moved and wasn't fired as he should have been. Fast and Furious is real, and the only big News Agency really addressing it honestly, is Fox News. Sorry, they are the best source for complete and unbiased News there is. Not all their commentators, but Fox News is the best source over all for hard News and actually the best for multidimensional perspective.

    He doesn't want to risk the entire thing being exposed even though Obama seems to have control of the media and what they put out there since the media in general has ignored the biggest story since Iran Contra.

    If this guy gets fired or thrown in jail for trying to take away constitutional rights by using fear he will throw everyone under the bus that was involved and I'm guessing Obama knew about this. A few months before this got out Obama told the Brady campaign that he was working on gun control but he had to do it under the radar. I do believe the ATF operation was the under the radar thing he was working on.

    And they fired the guy that exposed it, expose corruption and you get fired, go along with it and you get reassigned if you are caught.

    Source(s): Not long ago, the gun control advocates Jim and Sarah Brady visited the White House. President Barack Obama reportedly told them that he was working on new gun control schemes “under the radar.” http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0811/61942.ht...

    8 years below Bush = 537 US deaths 4 years below Obama = a million,500+ deaths no longer something is spoken approximately this and it particularly is pathetic. bear in mind. Obama used what HE (no longer HIS familiar) theory to be the acceptable form of forces in Afghanistan which replaced into some distance below what militia minds needed. And the numbers are a mirrored photograph of that.

    He's taking his cues from the Catholic Church.

    The Obama administration is going to be very good to any who have incriminating evidence against the President. Don't make anyone who's got the goods angry unless you can do away with them, it's a mob tactic.

    If the Pres fires him, he can then write a tell-all exposing Obama's culpability.
