Project ‘Gunrunner’ was different than ‘Fast and Furious’. Gunrunner had the aim of arresting traffikers before the guns left the continental US....Obama amended it to ‘Fast and Furious’ and then refused to allow agents to follow the guns out of the store,etc. In other words..it became ‘Gunwalker’ i.e. ‘Fast and Furious’ and the guns were allowed to ‘walk’...something never before done...EVER!

Good research...however it will be shown to have been changed by Obama/Holder from the original intent of the program in short order. Testimony has already shown this gross lawlessness.

Good background. Another thing to remember is that Gunrunner was a failure. It only resulted in very few arrests an very few guns being interdicted on the way to Mexico. An audit conducted, as I recall, showed that the ATF was accomplishing little for the amount of money spent. This gave them even more motivation to proceed with the conversion of "gunrunner" to the gunwalker scandal, which likely includes "fast and furious" in Phoenix, "Castaway" in Tampa, and other programs not yet uncovered.
