ABC News White House correspondent Jake Tapper once again proves why he should be the permanent host on ABC’s This Week.

He has been very clear that our policy is to put gunrunners in jail, so what he’s done is to assign an IG, an Inspector General to investigate exactly what happened here,” said Obama. Ramos interrupts Dear Leader at that point and asks, “Who authorized it?” Obama’s answer, “Well, we don’t have all the facts, that’s why the IG is in business….this is a pretty big government, the United State government, I’ve got a lot of moving parts.”

I guess the government is too big to know who inside it would concoct a program to sell 2000 of the most dangerous handheld weapons on the planet to known Mexican drug dealers, kidnappers, and murderers…
