'Fast and Furious' report puts blame on the program's leaders
U.S. — A report by the Inspector General on the controversial "Fast and Furious" gun-running operation places the blame for the program's failures on the leaders of the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
According to a report by Fox News, some details of the investigation show that there was a failure of leadership during "Fast and Furious".
The operation allowed thousands of guns to travel across the border in an effort to stop illegal gun trafficking.
A U.S. Border Agent was killed using one of the weapons.
Fox News reports that the investigation states that the ATFE and the Justice Department were aware that the U.S. was aware that the program's weapons were being actively used in Mexico, but the leaders of the program did nothing about it.
