Attorney General Eric Holder is taking some heat after ATF's program "Operation Fast and Furious" allowed hundreds of illegal guns to be smuggled into Mexico.
The guns landed in the hands of Mexican drug cartels... with two of the weapons found at the murder scene of an border patrol agent from Arizona.
Yesterday, Holder testified in front of a Senate committee regarding the issue.
Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, a ranking Republican on that committee, said he doesn't understand how Holder didn't know about what had been happening.
According to Grassley those around him were aware. "We have his criminal assistant attorney general knowing about it way last year. How could it be that the attorney general didn't know about it? But the attorney general told us yesterday with a straight face that he didn't know anything about it until it hit the press in February," said Grassley.
According to Grassley, 2,000 guns were sold illegally because of the operation.
