    They tried to sacrifice some mid-levels out in the field but the House would not let someone that low level take the rap. The current target is DC based, if not Holder himself.

    Sounds reminiscent of our plight with Stinger missiles in Afghanistan.

    Not a perfect analogy, but in both instances the US government gave weapons to questionable people in hopes of gaining an advantage. Later those weapons were used against Americans themselves.

    Not sure what they hoped to gain by allowing the guns to go through. Stingers worked as hoped.

    Well the hope was obviously that the guys buying the guns would lead them to bigger fish. I'd be interested to know if they were able to make positive gains from the program.

    And yes, the stingers worked, but not many were returned and most were smuggled out of the country.

    It did lead them to bigger fish.. The agents were ordered to let them, along with the guns, walk..

    I just want to know if the short-term losses helped the long-term. Aside from the regrettable deaths, did it provide valuable intelligence going forward? Isn't this a common practice of the government, to feed terrorists supplies in order to build a case and ultimately bring them down?

    So, did the operation have any success? I didn't see that in any of the articles.

    Looks like a huge cover up by Obamas transparent white house... Holder will probably take the rap but this stinks of Obamas under the radar gun control... The plan was to allow guns to the Mexican drug gangs to make gun stores and gun show operators look bad along with lax gun laws in the U.S. Wonder what excuse they will come up with??
