Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) Agent John Dodson has blown the whistle on "Fast and Furious," an BATFE-sanctioned operation that allegedly allowed the movement of thousands of firearms across the U.S.-Mexico border and into the hands of criminals. Cam Edwards and Ginny Simone speak with NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox who has sent letters to key leaders in Congress calling for hearings to examine the firearms trafficking investigations tactics employed by BATFE. He explains that, as Iowa Senator Charles Grassley has said, to allow the Justice Department to conduct the investigation would be "the fox guarding the hen house." "To have the same people who created this mess do an investigation, we all know where that's going to lead," says Cox, "we need a serious group of people to take a look at what happened, and tell us the truth-and let's deal with it."
