Where's the Smoking Gun?

Part of the dispute is a question of who knew what and when. Holder told Congress last May he only learned about it "in the last few weeks," but memos sent to him in July 2010 contradict that claim. In addition, in November 2011, Holder testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that a Feb. 4 letter from the Department of Justice to Grassley that stated "ATF makes every effort to interdict weapons that have been purchased illegally and prevent their transportation to Mexico" was "inaccurate."
