Issa Report: ATF Agents In 'State Of Panic' Over Gunrunner Program
RYAN J. REILLY | JUNE 15, 2011
The Obama administration handed over documents on a controversial anti-gunrunning program run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) just ahead of a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing Wednesday chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA).
Some of the documents showed that agents working on Project Gunrunner didn't intend for weapons that were supposed to be tracked in an effort to prosecute larger kingpins of gun trafficking operations to actually cross the border.
"We have no plans of letting any firearms (with or without a tracker) cross from the U.S. into Mexico," ATF Agent David Voth wrote in an email on April 23, 2010.
Last night, Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) issued a scathing joint report on Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious that included testimony from ATF agents who said they voiced their concerns about the tactics to their superiors but were ignored. Issa's spokesman said that the committee was receiving more information from whistleblowers inside the agency.
