ATF Agents Admit Mistakes
From today’s House Oversight investigation into Fast and Furious.
Special Agent Newell just admitted that mistakes were made in Fast and Furious. “There should have been more frequent risk assessments.” As an example, he admitted they should have contacted a straw purchaser who bought 600 firearms.
Congressman Trey Gowdy got ATF agents to admit they didn’t apprise Mexican officials of smuggling operation before it began. They planned to contact the Mexican government when they were ready for extradition requests.
