House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican, will soon air a different side of Operation Fast and Furious: what Mexico-based U.S. law enforcement officials dealt with. Senior Justice Department leadership in Washington ignored concerns Mexico-based Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) officials raised about the program, according to assertions made as part of the congressional investigation.

A House oversight committee hearing on Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. will examine effects Operation Fast and Furious had on “The Other Side of the Border.”

Former ATF attaché to Mexico, Darren Gil told Congressional investigators that, when he became aware of an “abnormal number of [Fast and Furious weapons] recoveries” in Mexico, he called Phoenix-based ATF officials with his concerns. Gil said they told him they were “working on it” and he was “satisfied” with that first response.

OK so let me check my understanding:

1. Worried ATF guys in Mexico called ATF guys in the USA, bewildered by the flood of US guns into Mexico

2. USA ATF guys told them, “We’re working on finding out that info for ya...”

3. But in fact when the Us ATF said they were WORKING on it, in fact they were working on SMUGGLING guns down to Mexico —THAT is how they were, “working on it”

RIGHT....?
