The "Fast and Furious" gunrunning probe is creeping closer to the Obama White House. It appears administration officials were willing to sign off on just about anything to accomplish their ends, and the result of this botched operation has has been over a hundred dead. Someone needs to be held accountable.
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.
Agent Newell, who headed the Phoenix, Ariz., office from which the scheme's operations were directed, contradicted that claim when he testified on Capitol Hill in July.
"It was not the purpose of the investigation to permit the transportation of firearms into Mexico," Mr. Newell added. "To the best of my knowledge, none of the suspects in this case was ever witnessed by our agents crossing the border with firearms."
