Fast and Furious by Katie Pavlich

In Fast and Furious:  Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Cover-up (Washington DC:  Regnery Publishing, 2012), Katie Pavlich doesn’t prove the assertion in her subtitle:  that Obama is involved in the scandal other than indirectly because of his appointments.  The book is quite readable and contains a lot of good information, some of which is not credible, though, because she cites anonymous sources.  (See, for example, Note 29 to Chapter Nine and Note 4 to Chapter Ten on page 211.)
