The Bush Administration used the name Wide Receiver which had nothing to do with either Gunrunner or Fast and Furious. Here is a rundown of Wide Receiver - it was much different that what this administration has done!
In Operation Wide Receiver, Tucson agents allowed the sales of more than 500 firearms to known straw purchasers. Like Gunrunner/Fast and Furious, the operation apparently backfired.
Some firearms in Wide Receiver were equipped with RFID tracking devices. In Wide Receiver, it seems the illegal purchasers seemed more than slightly knowledgeable of the ATF and how to take their aerial and electronic tracking procedures down.
Knowing the time aloft numbers for virtually all planes used in government surveillance, the buyers had a simple method of getting their purchases across the border undetected. They simply drove four-hour loops around the area.
As surveillance planes were forced to return to base for refueling, the smugglers simply turned and sprinted their cargo across the border.
The RFID tags also turned out to be problematic.
Rather than making large enough holes for the tags to be laid out inside weapons, agents force-fit them into the rifles.
That cramming caused the antennae to be folded, reducing the effective range of the tags. And an already short battery life (36-48 hours maximum) meant that should purchasers allow the firearms to sit, the tracking devices eliminated themselves.
Thars quite a bit of difference between the two operations.
Wide Receiver sought to track and interdict guns being smuggled south using a combination of RFID-tracking devices embedded in the shipments and overheard surveillance aircraft. Wide Receiver failed because of the limitations of the technology used, compounded by the ineptness of its installation and the unexpected resourcefulness of the cartels gun smugglers.
As a result of the mistakes made in Wide Receiver, guns were lost: approximately 450 made it into Mexico. As a result, the botched operation launched in 2006 and in this instance, actually botched was shut down in 2007.
Compare the mistakes of Wide Receiver to the operations launched under Eric Holders Department of Justice, which had the advantages of learning from the postmortem failures of Wide Receiver two years before.
Thanks, that was helpful. A poster wrote this at the same link. I found it helpful as it can be confusing is one hasn’t been following the events closely.
Here is the original on Youtube!!
I sent it to them also yesterday!
I sent links to the video to Shawn Hannity, Glen Beck, Fox News, and Drudge early this morning
Don’t forget Breibart!!!
I sent it to them also!
Whew! Well done! :)
There are software out there that will download and save video clips. Here is one I have used in the past and its free:
In the future, save the videos themselves instead of bookmarks since as you know now, they can take videos down, move the links, and do other stuff. If you have a copy you can upload it and share it anywhere. And this software compresses the videos so they don’t take a lot of space. You can organize the videos into special folders like you would any other kind of document or file.
Good job everyone. Executive privilege is to protest communication and advice TO THE PRESIDENT—ONLY the president. I thought he said he didn’t know anything about Fast and Furious? Now he has admitted that he was getting communication and advise directly!!! It is time to file immediate Federal Court actions to force this release and to stop this cover up. !! The people have a right to know before the election. Why has the congress failed to file this law suit?NOW!!! boys.
Better download that quick before the White House orders it taken down!
Thanks ,,, I will save it and use it often in the future .
Here is the original source;
U.S.-Mexico Border Security Policy

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg and Deputy Attorney General David Ogden held a news conference to announce the U.S.-Mexico Border Security Policy. They spoke to reporters and .. Read More
At another news conference that day, the efforts to assist Mexico part starts at about 25 minutes;

He then answered questions on a number of topics including the economy, efforts to assist Mexico in combatting drug cartels, international monetary policy, tax policy, stem cell research, and the Middle East peace process.
should be used by MORE CONSERVATIVES....it is the video web site for CONSERVATIVES....and it doesn't protect Obamugabe like "youtube" does....
I downloaded it a few nights ago. It’s in my video file :)
See Eva’s comment:
Note that they are part of the same program. Terry was murdered in the AZ segment. Zapata murdered in TX segment.
But if THEY are intertwined at the top level. Does any one have the documentation to establish this...or it THAT what 0 is hiding?
This is true,,, they do yank old vids that have few hits ,, but I went to YouTube on Wednesday after the Wed. hearings when Holder was held in contempt by the commitee and sent it to one of my unbelieving Dimocrat friends to show him and it was up then . Seems funny to me NOW they decide to mark it PRIVATE after being up for 3 years .
I heard the clip on a non-descript radio show last night. I think there are thousands of copies of it floating around by now.
