2. The program began in 2005 under the Bush Administration
It was named Project Gunrunner and it was started by the ATF during the Bush Administration in Laredo, Texas. From its humble beginnings as as a pilot program in 2005, Gunrunner progressed to a national program in 2006.

The secrecy of the Bush Administration supported by the ATF kept what was happening from public view, and shielded it even from the view of the Obama Administration. Now that the activities have blown up in the face of the ATF, the media only has blame for our President.
