ATF field agents working in Mexico broke ranks with their supervisors Tuesday during a rancorous five-hour House committee hearing, saying they were kept in the dark about a controversial undercover operation in which hundreds of guns ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels.
As a result, he said, Mexico will continue to suffer the consequences of drug-related firearms violence.
"I would like to apologize to my former Mexican law enforcement counterparts and to the Mexican people for Operation Fast and Furious," Darren Gil, former ATF attache to Mexico, told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. "I hope they understand that this was kept secret from most of ATF, including me and my colleagues in Mexico."
