Newell said the two are longtime friends. The content of what Newell shared with O'Reilly is unclear and wasn't fully explored at the hearing." ...

"House Republicans on Tuesday expanded their probe of a botched [ATF] operation that allowed thousands of guns to pour over the Mexican border after surprising and often stonewalled testimony that suggested additional involvement by more federal agencies."

"A top ATF agent repeatedly evaded intense questions on Operation Fast and Furious ... and initially blamed a field agent for launching the failed investigation before finally admitting that the IRS, [DEA], and [ICE] 'participated in the investigation' and were 'aware of the strategy.'" ...

Submitter's Note: I wish they would quit calling it a 'botched' operation. F&F did exactly what they intended: it funneled thousand of guns into the hands of violent drug cartels.

"Operation Fast and Furious was 'the perfect storm of idiocy,' according to a new report released today by Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley as a third hearing into the botched gun running sting operation opens on Capitol Hill."

"Carlos Canino, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ attaché to Mexico, testifying before Congressional investigators, is quoted in the 60-page report stating:"
"'What these guys did was basically grab the ATF rule book on trafficking and threw it out the window. This is indefensible. It is indefensible.'" ...
 

FBI complicity in 'Gunwalker' refutes 'rogue operation by leaderless ATF' claim

... "The FBI, in other words, was fully aware of what was going on, and made no move to stop it. This flies in the face of claims by administration apologists that this was no more than a 'rogue operation' within the BATFE, and was only allowed to happen because the BATFE has been 'leaderless,' without a permanent director since 2006."

"Keep in mind that the FBI is not hobbled with an acting director. Robert Mueller has, in fact, been the FBI director for nearly 10 years. Perhaps more importantly, the FBI and BATFE are both part of the Department of 'Justice.' No multi-agency operation within the DoJ could have been implemented without the knowledge, and indeed the approval, of very senior DoJ political appointees." ...
