Military Historian A.W.R. Hawkins talks to Cam Edwards about the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) operation "Fast and Furious," and the allegations that thousands of guns were allowed to cross the Mexico border-leading to the death of at least one U.S. agent. Hawkins notes that the media is hardly covering this major story and wrote an article titled "What if Richard Nixon Had Been President During Operation Gun Runner?" that compares how the presidents and the media handled these scandals.
