Attorney General Eric Holder testified this week before congress on the Fast and Furious gun walking scandal. But it seems like he’s trying to spin accountability away from the BATF, an agency that has caused a series of fiascos in the last two decades resulting in the deaths of innocent people without really holding anyone accountable.

Richard Perle was Assistant Secretary of Defense during the Reagan administration and he joins the show for a segment.
