Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Administrator Michelle Leonhart testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington on April 12, 2013. Leonhart says the agency never installed surveillance cameras to photograph vehicle license plates near gun shows. The idea was proposed in an internal DEA email as part of an effort to investigate gun-trafficking crimes.

The AP also learned the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives didn’t authorize or approve the license plate surveillance plan. (Associated Press) **FILE**
