I Have To Wonder...

...if it was a Fast & Furious gun.

The Secret Service says a bullet hit a White House window, stopped by bullet-proof glass.

A round of ammunition was also found on the exterior of the White House grounds, the Associated Press reports.

The Tuesday discoveries came after reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday.

The discovery follows reports of gunfire near the White House on Friday. Witnesses heard shots and saw two speeding vehicles in the area. An AK-47 rifle was also recovered.

The Secret Service says it has not conclusively connected Friday's incident with the bullets found on the White House grounds. U.S. Park Police have an arrest warrant out for Oscar Ortega-Hernandez, who is believed to be connected to the earlier incident.


And, if we're going to entertain conspiracy theories, it seems rather a coincidence that the same sort of weapon passed on to drug cartels in Mexico is being used to shoot at the White House, right at a time when Attorney General Eric Holder is under pressure to resign...

Ah, the possibilities:
"Holy crap, it's a F&F gun! We need to make sure this doesn't get out!"
or
"Holy crap, it's a F&F gun! Hey, if we can keep that part quiet maybe we can spin this on the 'evil assault rifle' stuff! Being used even to shoot at the President!"
